Alex Birnie Manners
I am an AC accredited life coach and graduate chartered psychologist with over 300 hours experience, I see clients face to face in West London and online. I work with all ages but have a particular interest in people aged between 20 and 30. I have a background in psychotherapy, mentoring and coaching. My coaching is collaborative, non judgmental and non directive. I offer a free 30 minute telephone consultation to understand what you are hoping to achieve and to explain how coaching might work. Once everything is agreed, I recommend 6 one hour sessions to focus on a goal and to encourage you to explore the best way to reach that goal . Client feedback is positive: people enjoy their sessions and say they find clarity on areas of their life which previously seemed muddled. You will feel more motivated, more confident and more decisive about setting your goal and achieving it. My practise is client lead which means that I respond to what you want and need.
"I have really enjoyed your coaching over the last year, it has allowed me to think about my career, in particular about what I want, where I want to be and more importantly how I’m going to get there.
I am very appreciative for the time you have taken to coach me this year, I honestly cannot thank you enough! It has honestly been so worth it..."
"Alex's coaching style is compassionate, kind and supportive. She is a true professional and is always able to provide calm and reasoned logic to help me reach solutions. She goes above and beyond her role and empowers me to tackle issues that I may initially view as too challenging..."
‘My coaching sessions with Alex have been instrumental in helping me find clarity in what I want for my career and in giving me the boost that I needed to do this. She has helped me to retrain my thinking into focusing on the positives in situations rather than automatically zoning in to the negatives which I had developed the bad habit of doing! When we first started our sessions, I was miserable at work and had handed in my notice without really knowing what I wanted to do or where I wanted to go next. With Alex’s help, I was able to realise my goals and succeeded in finding a job which I truly love and am very happy in. I cannot thank her enough and only wish I had met her sooner!’
