Alex Bowman - Clear Water Coaching
Hey. Firstly, thanks for checking out my bio page.
My name is Alex Bowman and I’m a Coach, a loving husband, a proud dad and I’m super passionate about physical and mental wellbeing.
I’ve had a passion for wellbeing ever since I can remember. At university, I studied sport and fitness and naturally stepped into a career in fitness. I started my career as a fitness instructor and personal trainer and then eventually, I managed a number of gyms.
As a personal trainer, I found that it wasn’t just about the prescription of exercise and the motivational techniques that kept people coming back. It was the ability to be curious about all aspects of a client’s life and realise that it’s all interlinked.
Fast forward a decade and I’ve climbed the corporate ladder in the training and education industry and have discovered the power of coaching. Being coached challenged me to answer questions I’d never voiced, unearth my values, figure out what I love to do, express the life I truly want and, take ACTION!
It was within one of these sessions that I finally had the insight to merge all my experiences together, retrain as a life coach and create Clear Water Coaching.
My mission is to coach people to make transformation in their lives. To help them find their purpose and transition them into a life of fulfilment. To combine the power of life coaching and health coaching to create a life of flow, passion and performance.
The more people I talk to, the more I realise people need coaching and guidance on wellbeing in their lives (whether they know it or not).
Here’s to the journey.

1 x 1 hour completion session
The cost of the coaching journey is £500.

£150 month 3
*Please note payment will need to be in advance of each month.
Our First Free Sample Session Together
This is the first step of the coaching journey.
This is a 45 minute session where you’ll get to experience my coaching and I’ll answer any questions you have. These sessions are really important for a number of reasons. Firstly, to see if coaching is for you but also for us to establish whether we are a good fit. It’s as much about me deciding whether you are ready to take action and fit with my coaching style, as it is your decision too.
I generally do these sessions over the phone but I’m happy to meet face to face if you’re nearby.
After this session, it’s time for you to reflect about your experience and come back to me about whether you wish to hire me as your Coach.
There’s no awkward sales pitch or feelings of guilt if you don’t wish to hire me afterwards so don’t panic. My door will always be open in the future.
The Discovery Session
If we decide to work together, our first session will be a Discovery session - These sessions are epic!
Within this 2 hour session you’ll tell me everything you think I need to know about your life. We’ll discover your values, what lights you up, where your drive comes from and where you want to go. You don’t need to have clarity on any of this. It’s my job to work with you to pull it all together.
We’ll also look into your lifestyle, health and fitness. We’ll design what level of input you want from me as mentor around improvements you can make. This can range from basic suggestions through to looking at nutrition and exercise programming.
These sessions are usually done over the phone but if you’re local, I love to do these face-to-face!
After our discovery session, we will have bi-weekly coaching sessions. These are 1 hour sessions over the phone.
Within these sessions, we’ll dive into what’s happening in your life and focus on topics of importance to you. We’ll continue to build upon your goals. I’ll be asking you powerful questions and holding you to account to make you step up your game.
We’ll recognise negative thinking and self sabotage and deal with it head on!
We’ll check in on your lifestyle and health choices and agree changes you can make to perform at your best throughout your day.
You’ll become the unstoppable force that you were born to be!
Here's a testimonial from one of my amazing clients:
“Setting up my own coaching business I had to make a lot of decisions, having Alex @ Clear Water, as my coach & mentor was simply the best one I made!
He’s helped me to prioritise what was important in my life through coping with redundancy to setting up in business.
He’s coached me to be present and enjoy the journey and be kinder to myself.
Helped strengthen my resolve and keep me focused on my goals, whilst helping me tame my saboteurs.
His coaching began at the start of my Cti journey and he provided me with support and challenge in equal measure, helping me to stay focused on the positives and stay energised.
The more, my own business has grown, the more important he has become as my coach, his alternative perspectives, intuition and immense encouragement have been incredible.
Thank you Alex for being you, I’ve very much enjoyed working together and long may it continue."
