Alice Stapleton - Career Coach for those in their 20s and 30s
Alice is a Career Coach with 12 years experience (7 years as a coach) of working with graduates and professionals in their 20s and 30s who wish to identify a career that will provide meaning, purpose, and fulfilment.
The coaching Alice provides is perfect for graduates who don’t know what they want to do after university, as well as early career-changers and parents returning to work who want to change career but don’t know what they want to do instead.
12-session career coaching package
Many of Alice’s clients feel trapped in a particular job/career, not knowing quite how they ended up down the path they're on. They want to change direction but don't quite know where to start with making the shift, or what they’d do instead.
Alice offers a 12-session career coaching package that helps you go from being lost and unclear about what career would suit you best, to feeling excited and inspired about your newly-identified career options, and how to start making them a reality.
By completing a series of 12 sessions with Alice, you will work through the following stages:
1. EXPLORE phase (7 sessions)
Research shows that those who are most satisfied and motivated by their work are in careers which reflect who they really are; careers which reflect their true nature and their real passions; careers which draw on their innate strengths and employ their favourite skills; careers which allow them to honour their deeply-held values. Because of this, the foundation of the coaching entails a long, hard look at who you are as a person, and your life as a whole.
During the EXPLORE phase, you’ll get a clear idea of:
- Your values
- Your life purpose
- Your most powerful self
- Your personal strengths
- Your interests and passions
- Your personal achievements
- Everything you need in your life to be happy and fulfilled.
The next layer on the foundation stone in the EXPLORE phase is about your key work preferences. You’ll work to identify:
- Your favourite job skills
- Your key work motivators
- Your professional strengths
- Your greatest work achievements
- Your preferred working organisation and environment
- Your ideal working day
- Everything you need in your working life to be motivated and satisfied.
By the end of the EXPLORE phase, you will be very clear about what you must have in your new career to be satisfied and motivated, which then acts as the acid test for evaluating any future career ideas or job opportunities.
2. DREAM phase (2 sessions)
This is a very creative part of the coaching programme where together you generate a number of possible new career choices. It’s called DREAM because the idea here is to be expansive, to think outside the box, not to be constrained at this stage by traditional notions of what’s possible.
The most attractive ideas are then explored in some detail and then finally narrowed down to between one and three strong possibilities, which will be explored further in the DISCOVER phase, the final part of the programme.
3. DISCOVER phase (3 sessions)
DISCOVER is the point where you investigate the top possibility that was generated in the DREAM phase. Together you will use a creative and empowering process, which lets you turn your compelling vision for an exciting career that’s right for you in to a clear, structured action plan you can follow in order to make it a reality.
For those keen to find out more about coaching, Alice offers an hour-long introductory session to discuss your current situation, your goals, and what to expect from coaching. You can then decide whether Alice is the right coach for you and how you would like to proceed.

In this session you'll discuss coaching, your current situation, aspirations, what you want to gain from the coaching, and what to expect from working with Alice. You will also be asked to complete a prep form beforehand to get a little background information from you so that the most can be made out of the introductory session.
