Robert Hutchinson - Authentic Life Coaching
56 Shoreditch High Street
I run an independent coaching practice offering life coaching and executive coaching focused on identity, wellbeing and results.
My first career was in broadcast TV where I worked in the fast-moving and pressurised environment of TV programme promotion and channel launches. During that time I adopted a coaching style of leadership which resulted in a track record of recruiting, building and training effective and happy teams.
After 20 years in the TV industry, I felt that I needed new challenges. I wasn't thriving in my life or career - it felt like I had drifted off course and that I needed to get back on track. I wanted to create a more independent, fulfilling and authentic life so I trained as a coach and I launched the coaching practice The Authentic Life Company. Since then my coach training has taken me on a fascinating personal journey of learning and self-discovery.
Over the last four years I have worked with clients who have the motivation and determination to do the in-depth and challenging work needed to achieve their desired outcome. My clients come from different professional areas including business owners, leaders, entrepreneurs, millennials looking for direction, mid-lifers looking for re-direction, and people in the media and creative industries.
As your coach, I will listen to you, question you, challenge you and help you get to know yourself as the first step towards creating the changes you truly want. We will work together to build self-awareness, reflection and insight to leverage the full potential of your true identity and talents.
Benefits my clients gain from coaching are:
- CONTENTMENT - know who you are and what makes you truly happy
- CLARITY - on decisions and direction because they are based on the true you
- COURAGE - make changes and work towards your future with purpose and passion
- CONFIDENCE - leverage your natural strengths by being self-aware and true to yourself
Authentic Life coaching services include personal development, life skills, career coaching, redundancy coaching, wellbeing and creating sustainable work/life balance.
Authentic Leadership executive coaching services include professional development, leadership development, business coaching, career coaching and wellbeing at work.
This is what recent clients have said about our work together:
“One of the best experiences I have had in my life."
Nikola D, Amsterdam
"Robert was incredibly professional and helpful on my journey of self-discovery. It was important for me that he previously had a career in the 'real world' and that he had benefited from coaching himself. Through Robert’s coaching I now understand myself even deeper, I’m happier and I have more clarity on what I do and don't want in my life.”
Anna Meylak, London
"I went to Robert as a 9-5 worker living for the weekends and deep down I knew this didn't suit me. Robert's help allowed me to have the confidence to go for what I really wanted. It was this time last year when I started thinking about coming to a life coach and looking back now the impact that Robert's coaching has made is unbelievable - I'm already signed with a very good acting agent and I'm a professional working actor."

As my client you'll receive a fully supported professional coaching and personal development service, with email support between sessions and a private account on The Authentic Life Company portal.
The initial coaching focus meeting is free of charge. During this meeting we talk about your current situation and clarify your desired outcome from coaching. It's also an opportunity for us to meet in person and to establish whether we're a good fit.
I coach clients in person in London, or via video conferencing for UK and international clients. I've coached clients all over the world using video conferencing which is a very effective platform for coaching. If you're interested we can meet online so you can try it out. Coaching online is effective, it's convenient and it means we can work together irrespective of where you live.
