About me


Follow a proven formula that moulds to your unique personality & circumstances - working together we make sure the journey suits you - not the other way around. 

I work primarily with professionals & business owners, however, my coaching model is applicable to adults of all ages and backgrounds. 

A sales executive for 30 years before becoming a qualified life & business coach in 2009,
I help business owners, executives & staff overcome the increasing stress levels which are taking a toll:

  •       Manage and diminish your stress and anxiety
  •       Increase your resilience
  •       Create life balance
  •       Staff coaching and evaluation
  •       Control your emotions and reactions
  •       Make lifestyle changes and habits that 'stick'
  •       Self confidence & motivation 

I've been self employed since 1983 so executive coaching was a natural fit for me. Essentially executive & life coaching are the same discipline - but the change in focus on the workplace, together with a wealth of experience, can make all the difference.

  • business owners & executives can increase workplace performance by improving: resilience, morale, staff retention, & self confidence, to name the most prevalent.
  • I design programmes focused on you and I help create positive change in employee motivation & mindset in 1-2-1, or group sessions
  • Please contact me directly to discuss improving your productivity.


Coaching is a finite process - there is a beginning, a middle and an end during which I will help you to:

  • set a challenging but achievable mid term GOAL
  • formulate a realistic step by step PLAN
  • and then we'll SEE IT DONE!

The momentum will be forward, relentless, BUT will be at your pace. Whether you are comfortable with huge strides or baby steps is up to you - IT'S YOUR SHOW.

I coach people from all walks of life, ages, gender, and cultural background. If you want to make lasting change for the better, I will be delighted to work with you. The most common issues I help people to manage and overcome are:

  • Overcoming Stress
  • Anxiety issues
  • Lost 'mojo' at work & at home
  • Healthier lifestyle
  • Enhancing self esteem, self confidence, self doubt
  • Instilling a positive mindset

You choose where to meet: my study in Hertfordshire, in London, a location in your area, or online/telephone.

It is vital that you feel that you are in a completely safe environment. Only then, when you know you are speaking in complete confidence, will you express what you really think and feel. The more open and expressive our work together, the more we can get out of it - and I treat such confidence with the importance it deserves. Not only will I not disclose anything that is discussed within our sessions - EVER - I will neither confirm nor deny that I am even working with you at all.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have the best job in the world: I get to hear dreams and see change – it’s an immense honour.

After 35 years as a sales executive for Italian corporations, I began using my experience in business to help people manage the challenges they face. I professionally trained as a coach to an advanced level and my on going studies concern all aspects of human behaviour & holistic therapy.

  • CPCP & Advanced Coaching Qualified
  • Certificate in Business & Professional Coaching Practice
  • Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course, Bangor University
  • Member - International Coaching Federation –

It goes without saying that I adhere to the strict code of ethics that comes with membership of the ICF. I also follow the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for holistic therapy

Other areas of coaching I deal with

I am not a 'motivational speaker' but rather I seek to help others uncover that inner motivation, time and again, long after they have left one of my workshops. The ability to self motivate has never been more important!
    In an interactive environment with groups of people (numbers do not need to be limited) I like to break down inner motivation into bite size pieces and speak about the practical steps that can be taken first to 'fire it up' and then to sustain it.

The actual practice of Mindfulness is not for everyone, but the principles of awareness, living in the moment, and non judgement are prominent in all aspects of cognitive and holistic personal and group development. I found Mindfulness to be a powerful way of navigating my way through the stress and pace of corporate life - and you will too.

Alan has a captivating style that can stir and steer thoughts into wanting to make a positive change. He is a very professional coach and a true gentleman. Throughout the talk, many were captivated by his calming philosophical look at life through Italian irony and deep understanding of life.AP, Buckinghamshire

'Thank you so much for yesterday's session, and indeed, for all our sessions, which have been so very helpful! I'm beginning to be more aware than ever of the patterns of behaviour I get into, which aren't always positive for my health and wellbeing, and just that aspect is a huge stride forward! But, they've helped in so many other ways, too numerous to mention and perhaps in ways I'm not yet conscious of even! I'm so grateful to you for your gentle guidance, encouragement and empathy.' JS, Welwyn

'I have really noticed something during the last few weeks, and life coaching has really inspired me to re-assess so many things, and as a result of that, I have changed my lifestyle and I think the coaching has really enabled me to see what is important in life and priortise that- so its really paid off and I don't think you can put a price on your coaching- its been amazing . .. it really has !'
