Manisha Patel BA (Hons) CPC ELI-MP
I am the founder of Compassionate Alignment and a Transformational Life Coach, Meditation Teacher, Facilitator and Public Speaker. I help women and men encourage personal and developmental growth, awareness and widening their horizons by opening inner and outer blocks that could be restricting you from moving forward.
Coaching is a form of personal development, whereby the coach supports their client in achieving a specific personal or professional goal, by listening, acknowledging and providing guidance.
I was drawn to coaching through life experiences, upon approaching my 40's there was an imminent uncertainty in my life, which required focus and clarity. Having experienced personal coaching, the process was highly powerful and produced dramatic shifts in my life. It was a catalyst for my transformation and self-awareness.
Coaching is a highly regarded relationship between client and coach based on confidentiality, trust, honesty, integrity, and non-judgment. As a client, I will help you move forward in a safe place, explore your confidence and bring about effective and compassionate change in your life. I will help you focus on what you need at that time in your life. Together we devise a strategic plan that holds you accountable, delivering your goals.
Coaching is a partnership, based on the client's agenda, I walk alongside my clients, supporting, inspiring, motivating, encouraging and empowering their desired goals.
Training, qualifications & experience
I remained at my former workplace, with Pepsico for 17 years, and decided that it was time for a change, and decided to train with an accredited coaching program. iPEC was highly regarded and accredited by the ICF, International Coaching Federation. The coaching program played a significant part in my personal growth and development. The training included 6 months of peer to peer coaching. A reputable coach will receive periodic coaching, even after their initial training/qualification in order to maintain neutrality, unbias and objectivity with their client. I have personally received coaching, last two years.
I also qualified as an Energy Master Practioner in March 2017. The ELI, is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. It will help you become aware of how you respond to different situations.
I qualified as a certified professional coach (CPC) accredited by the ICF In November 2017.
Continuing on a path of self-growth, self-development, self-awareness, and self-acceptance, I instinctively knew that the next step was to train as a Meditation Teacher. Again, through gaining clarity through my own coaching I decided to train with davidji, who apprenticed under Deepak Chopra. davidji went on to teach meditation at the Chopra Center University for 10 years.
I qualified as a Masters of Wisdom and Meditation Teacher in October 2018, undergoing 285 hours of training. Since embarking on this course, I have volunteered at my local primary school to teach mindfulness, the staff at UAVA ( United Against Violence and Abuse) and currently offering my services at LOROS.

Areas of coaching I deal with
Other areas of coaching I deal with
It brings me great joy seeing clients flourish and immerse into their wholeness, greatness and accepting all parts of their being. They are open and willing to work on the relationship they have with themselves. It’s fundamental in recognizing who you really are. In order for the coaching relationship to be effective, clients must believe that they have the power to create the lives they want to create. Through the power of coaching, we help clients “see” the highest vision and the magnificence of themselves. Encouraging their natural desire to grow and express themselves. Clients include:
Women who have lost their identity through relationships and bringing up children and careers.
Women who are always looking for love, worthiness, acceptance, and value externally, and need guidance finding these resources from within.
Women who have been in co-dependent relationships.
Women who are people pleasers, they please everyone but themselves and neglect their own needs.
Women of culture or women who generally are not aware of boundary issues.
Women or men who are uncertain of their paths but realize there is something missing in their lives, there is something incomplete.
Women or men who have done some self-development work but need guidance in the next phase of their lives.
Women who have a desire to grow powerfully and courageously and need support to express themselves.
Complimentary coaching session 1 to 1 30- 60 min
I initially offer a complimentary 1-1 session around 30-60 minutes dependant on the client. The initial call will help you find out what coaching can do, to help you figure out if coaching is for you, and if all that is great, to see if we are a good match.
Coaching Services include 1 to 1 sessions.
1-hour sessions = £80
1-month sessions (based on 4-week session ) = £320
3 month session/ package deal = £800 (saving of £160)
If you book 1-month or 3-month package, the first session would be around 2 hours at no extra fee.
"Manisha is incredibly intuitive. She has helped me to focus on what is important in my life by helping me get out of a continuous cycle of assumptions and limiting beliefs that were blocking me from living my life. She encouraged me to focus on my strengths so I could thrive in both my professional and personal life. She has continually displayed her compassionate, caring nature accompanied by her commitment and high level of integrity. In addition to being an awesome coach, Manisha is also wonderful human being who is thoughtful, encouraging, and is passionate about helping her clients find their voice."
“It’s been two years since I had my coaching with Manisha and the results were almost immediate. After a few weeks, I knew I wasn’t living the life I wanted deep inside. I realized I took the path that was the safest choice but not necessarily my own. My life has changed during and after our time together. I am brave and honest with myself and now choose who I let in my life. I no longer let people take advantage of my good heart for their purpose. I am happy to say I’m chasing my dreams and simply living my life on my own terms. You were a great support in my transformation, trustworthy, friendly and kind.”
“Manisha has a way of asking the right questions to pull out exactly what you need to hear, “yourself say”. She gives you the tools that puts the power back in your hands in order to direct your life. You can tell she loves what she does because she does it with so much compassion, even when you need to hear the truth it comes from a place of love. ”
