About me

Unlock your clarity & conviction with business coaching for purpose & direction.

You don’t have to figure out your professional journey on your own.
Too many people feel overwhelmed and alone in their careers. With things moving faster than ever, the pressure to perform in your work while also searching for job satisfaction and meaning as a human being can leave people feeling stressed, lost and lacking the support they really need.

What we all long for is clarity, and importantly, conviction to overcome the obstacles we face without burning out. Whether you’re looking for a safe space to navigate the complexities of your professional landscape or dreaming of changing roles entirely, Alice is skilled in helping people unlock the path ahead of them with confidence. Problem-solving for short-term work challenges, and exploring how to realise a longer-term professional vision are both Alice's strengths and passions.

After taking her own business to high-level success and experiencing multiple burnouts, she began exploring how we can liberate ourselves in our professional lives. Her journey has included receiving in-depth coaching, becoming a fully qualified Business Coach herself, learning about neurobiology and the Enneagram of personality, Ayahuasca ceremonies in the Amazon rainforest, breathwork facilitation training - and so much more (including an ongoing degree in Psychology!).

Now Alice uses her expertise to coach individuals & teams who are on their journey so they can finally experience the professional freedom, fulfilment and success they dream of.

Additional information

I am also available on Mondays exclusively for free 'chemistry-checks' where we meet on video call and explore where you are now and what brought you to look for coaching. I am also sometimes available on Tue, Wed & Thu for chemistry checks (although I try to prioritise my existing clients on those days).

You can check my availability for a chemistry check here:

This is a strictly no-strings-attached, free coaching conversation for up to 45 minutes, where we can both decipher if it would be the right fit for us to work together. It's not in my interest to take on clients unless I'm convinced I can help them, so rest assured we won't embark on a coaching journey together unless it's the right fit :)
