Alice Leake - Career & Confidence Coach for Young Professionals
COVID-19: Coaching through uncertainty
In the past three weeks, it’s like time has sped up. I’m sure I’m not the only one left reeling at the quick succession of changes affecting our work, our lifestyle and our wellbeing.
I’ve had lots of conversations with friends, colleagues and coaching clients about how challenging it can be to:
- Reset our expectations of what’s now possible, or realistic, and curb our disappointment
- Reorganise our priorities to focus on what’s within our control and what matters most
- Nurture our relationships (whether we’re stuck under one roof, or stuck in separate places)
- Tend to our wellbeing, both physically and mentally
- Work through any fears or anxiety about our health, work or finances
I certainly don’t have all the answers, but I want to do what I can to support each of you through this weird and uncertain time. Whether that’s a space to vent, process, reflect or plan - I’m still here.
I know it’s a scary to invest in anything at the moment, never mind yourself, so I’m offering all new clients a half-price session in the month of April.
It will be a 60-minute session via phone or Zoom for just £25. As always, what we use that time to discuss is totally up to you.
Stay safe, and we’ll get through this together.
Career & Confidence Coach for Young Professionals
I work with young professionals who are looking to make a change in their lives.
- Perhaps you want to gain more confidence and assertiveness
- Perhaps you’re ready to take control of your career progression
- Perhaps you’d like to improve your work life balance and reduce stress
- Perhaps you’re ready to reshape relationships and habits that are holding you back
Or perhaps you’re not quite sure what your next step is yet, but you think you could be doing more or better.
I specialise in bringing you clarity about exactly what you want, and empowering you to achieve it. My style is supportive but challenging, as I push you to explore the boundaries of what you can accomplish.
Find Your Path. Follow It.
Let's Get Started
I have a consultation call with every potential client, which is a chance for you to experience my style of coaching and find out more about how I can help you achieve your goals. Why not get in touch today by email or phone, so we can have our first conversation.
"I found coaching with Alice amazing! It’s been life changing - so revealing and inspiring. Alice is so professional and natural in her coaching you feel like you are talking to a long lost friend. This really helped me open up, challenge some of my thinking and set goals that felt right in order to continue with new exciting chapters."
- Joanna, Yoga Instructor
"Coaching with Alice was very liberating. It felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, and enabled me to gain answers to the problems I had. The biggest benefit I took from our sessions was the clarity to end a relationship that was toxic. I restarted hobbies and interests, and gained confidence."
- Kate, Freelance Designer
"I was overwhelmed by committing to too many projects and responsibilities in my working life, and I found I wasn't enjoying any of them. I didn't know how to relax by myself, and so kept tiring myself out by working.
Working with Alice was very easy and helpful. She listened carefully to me when I spilled out everything on my mind, and she asked insightful questions that helped me make sense of how I felt, and how I was behaving - her intuitive responses guided me to some big personal realisations in a short amount of time. She helped me come up with some very practical steps to work more effectively and efficiently in my job, and she's changed my attitude towards downtime away from work, so I feel I can relax more - I feel more fulfilled all round as a result of the time I spent with Alice. Thank you!"
- Henry, Writer & Grant Fundraiser
"Absolutely fantastic! Really not what I expected from a ‘coach’ because you have so much depth and obvious Psychology-based understanding. I can really see how your Psychology background has informed your style and given you a much deeper awareness of what is going on beneath the surface. I feel that uprooting what is really going on in the psyche is much more likely to create long lasting results for me rather than the quick motivational fixes one normally expects from standard coaching.
This was all expertly handled by not fixating on the past but rather by cherry picking the relevant background information that related directly to the issue in question. You also have such a strong sense of time and how to move around it with your questions to extract the necessary info. I will definitely recommend you to all my friends because you have really made a difference to my thinking and behaviour in such a short amount of time. Thank you Alice!"
- Namalee, Fashion Stylist & Editor
"The process really made me think differently and delve deeper. I realised what was holding me back, and how I could turn the situation around. I left feeling very positive and motivated."

I consider my own ongoing coaching as an important part of my development as a coach and an individual.
Areas of coaching I deal with
Sessions cost £50 each and last for one hour.
While I recommend starting with four sessions, flexibility and affordability are really important to me (and my clients) so I use a pay-as-you-go system.
I coach clients face-to-face in Victoria, and also over phone or Skype - the choice is yours. You may find that coaching over the phone allows you greater flexibility and convenience.
Coaching is an important investment in yourself, your future and your goals.
