About Ali 

For coaching to be truly effective it's vital that a relationship of like and trust is developed between me the coach and you the coachee.  I think it's useful for the people I work with to know a bit about me and how and why I decided to become a coach.  Read on below to find out more...

My Story

Having worked in secondary education in the UK for 22 years, I have seen and experienced first hand the levels of stress and overwhelm juggling a busy pressured work environment and life brings.   In 2018 I realised I needed to do something in my own life for my well being.  On paper I had a nice life but my feelings didn't match that.  I wasn't unhappy but equally I couldn't tell you when I had felt real happiness for a long time.  I was stressed, exhausted and knew I needed things to change but didn't know what or how.

 I started working with a coach myself and soon I realised I was spending most of my time 'miles away' lost in my thoughts; desperately trying to control everything and cover all bases.   It was making me exhausted. From the outside looking in; I was Ali- reliable, mega organised and in control of everything going on at home and work. In reality I was exhausted from overworking and overthinking.  Having experienced the truly life changing transformation working with a coach had for me, I knew I had found my new passion in life for helping others have the same life changing transformations.  

I embarked on years of study in mindset coaching, ICF accredited integrative coaching, mindfulness and meditation.  Having spent years in education, I am a true advocate of life long learning and am passionate about my continued professional development.  I regularly complete CPD in all areas of my work as well as participating in group mentoring sessions with other coaches.  Whether you choose to work with me or another coach, I highly recommend you ask them what do they do, ongoing, for their self growth and development.
