  • Ali is a natural coach with an empowering, empathetic and no nonsense approach. She is well read and educated, sharing relevant insights and learnings freely. I gained clarity quickly on the coaching session I had, which set me on a healthier and more focused path in life. All this in just one session.

  • I have found Ali’s coaching both uplifting and very practical – something which I found lacking in therapy – and sorely needed. She is very good at pulling me back to where I need to focus, and spotting patterns in language and expression that give clues to help me see things in a new and different light. She has some really great tools and practical methods to bring clarity to confusing emotional situations, making them feel less insurmountable. She is perceptive, insightful, empathetic -and funny! Without the humour I would find it significantly harder to make progress. Her lovely ability to highlight where I am going around in a loop or getting caught in irrelevance, in a gentle and hilarious way makes me feel hopeful for change rather than any sense of defeat at repeated patterns. She has a unique outlook and has clearly learned from a lot of lived experience, which lends real authenticity and compassion to her suggestions and insights – and she is good at instinctively asking  questions which really help me move forward. I love that she engages in real discussion and brings her own experience to the table. I really look forward to our sessions; she’s the biz. Thank you, Ali.

  • I feel witnessed, supported and gently held to account due to Ali’s skill in reflecting back to me; based on both my verbal and physical responses. I feel encouraged to clarify my thinking and delve more deeply into what lies below the ‘waterline’.

  • I have found the experience incredibly supportive and rewarding. Ali is an excellent listener (allowing me to ramble), she links language and phrases I’ve expressed at various points of the session, which deepens my awareness. She has an incredible skill in allowing me to observe a different perspective without blocking what I’ve expressed. I’ve left each of our sessions feeling positive and I have follow through actions discussed with great energy.

  • Ali was both calming and reassuring. I felt listened to and she explained everything in great detail to make sure I understood the process. Ali has a natural empathetic way about her and even though it was done via a video call it felt very personal.

  • Ali was very skillful in guiding me into self-discovery and awareness. She is very easy to talk to, and has a way of making you feel comfortable with her welcoming presence.

  • Within our first one-hour session, Ali really helped me to focus on what is important to me at this time. We then worked together to create manageable goals to be completed within a realistic and structured time frame. I came away from the session feeling excited that I’m now going to stop procrastinating and that I’m finally going to get stuff done. Seeing my aims and objectives as less of a mountain has given me a fresh new outlook and I just know that the accountability of having a coach is going to spur me on to achieve so many wonderful things!

  • Ali asked questions that helped me to organize my thoughts resulting in me feeling less overwhelmed and more clear about my beliefs, values and course direction. Ali was empowering and gentle, creating a safe space for me to be vulnerable about my fears and blocks. 
  • L, USA (Business Coaching in the education industry)
  • Ali is such a compassionate coach. Her energy in our session was calm and light-hearted which helped me relax and feel safe. Ali is funny and sweet but also very discerning and pointed in her coaching questions. I love her style!

  • I have found coaching to be a non-threatening, accessible way to develop thoughts, ideas and plans. The leading/open questions encouraged me to think in new creative and practical ways and I appreciated Ali’s input with ideas that I wouldn’t have explored otherwise. I have personally utilised the sessions to explore ways in which to organise and expand my small business. As well as thinking broadly about the themes and ideas that define my work, I found focusing on more specific areas of the business very helpful.

  • I knew I reached out to the right person. You have allowed me to be vulnerable and be comfortable in my discomfort that led me to ask myself more helpful than judgmental and shameful questions that creates safety in me leaning more to learn more. Your work is amazing and is SOOOO needed.

  • I had been looking for the right coach for over 6 months when I came across Ali’s group connection coaching in a Meetup group for Lesbians and Queer Women. In the very first session I was really impressed by the way Ali held the space; she manages to balance softness and compassion with clear boundaries and communication. For someone with complex PTSD, it immediately made me feel safe. As a holistic coach, I love the way Ali uses her coaching and psychological skill, combined with intuition and empathy, to hear what the human is trying to express as a need. She then beautifully and skillfully keeps feeding that back to you and helps you hone the issue and feel your way into a solution. For me, at first, I was terrified of putting more pressure on myself in 121 sessions. My only ‘goal’ was to work on feeling less fear and anxiety about the future after years of trauma therapy. Ali was amazing.  She listened to me, and whilst helping me find a way through, she never put undue stress or pressure on me to be anywhere other than where I was at. The results have been incredible. Since working both 121 and in group sessions with Ali, I have achieved many things I would have thought impossible just a few months ago, including a night away alone at a beachside B&B, swimming in the sea alone, and stand up paddleboarding. All these things really terrified me before. Ali has also made it incredibly easy for me to work with her. She offers instant online booking, discounted block booking, a free initial session and regular group coaching for queer women. Plus, she is honest about her own constant growth and progression, which really inspires me. I can’t recommend Ali more highly. I have so much gratitude for her and it has been a privilege to write this review.

  • Ali is an amazing coach that really takes the time to get to know you. She pushes you, in a very gentle way, to see the beauty within yourself and has allowed me to break through some of my difficult times, and losses. I would recommend Ali as a coach because she has a comforting way about her, and knows how to put you at ease when talking and working through difficult times.

  • I couldn’t recommend Ali more highly. In complete honesty I was slightly sceptical at first about life coaching. I knew a few people who had said it really helped them achieve their full potential, but I didn’t know if it could work for me. Within a few sessions of working with Ali I found myself pushing forward with the goals we had put in place, instead of procrastinating as I had for the 5 years before! I can honestly say the last 3 months have been by far the most productive of my working life, I really have taken huge leaps forward that I didn’t think were possible. I feel accountable for my work, my actions and my future. A huge amount of the pressure that I felt about my life previously has transformed into a mindset of excitement, abundance and most importantly for me a sense that I am in control of it. Ali is open, honest, understanding and so positive. It feels like she genuinely has your best interests at heart and has a wealth of knowledge and techniques to help you achieve what you want. Thank you Ali! I look forward to our next session!

  • When starting in my first Theatre Workshop Leader role, it was incredibly helpful to utilise Ali’s expertise in both Theatre and Course Design to develop delivery ideas. Within each hour meeting, we thoroughly planned two-hours of delivery content, catering activities to the age of the participants, differing venues, and Covid-19 regulations. In response to my own request, we focused on developing structured workshops around weekly themes, and spent time drawing on existing theatre games, creatively adapting them where necessary to fit the decided theme. The clear focus of the meetings allowed me to evaluate and respond to the delivery and reception of previous workshops, and refocus ideas for future session. The coaching meetings were therefore not only beneficial to me, but also to the participants of my workshops, who received workshops specifically tailored to their interests and strengths as we progressed through the season. Ali’s warm style encouraged the realisation and development of my own ideas, whilst allowing room for collaborative discussion, in which Ali offered her own experience within the industry. Although developing practical work within the meetings, communication did not feel limited over Zoom and we could effectively discuss some of the more active games. Under Ali’s constructive guidance, I was also able to practice articulating more complex ideas, before introducing the content to younger participants new to the theatre language. The space to talk through ideas within these meetings allowed me to feel organised and prepared in my written planning, and deliver the sessions with an increased confidence and flexibility in response to participant’s differentiation needs.

  • Ali is a goldmine, full of wisdom nuggets! Our coaching around boundaries really illuminated my understanding of what it means to have boundaries and what it means when someone is pushing your boundaries. I will be a lot more steadfast with my boundaries now, which I think is really supporting my self-esteem and confidence in relationships, thank you!

  • Ali is a highly skilled coach and mentor. I had the very good fortune of being mentored by Ali while starting work delivering Inclusive Leadership training for an organisation working with the MOD. I felt supported and guided every step of the way and was delivering with confidence in not time. Ali made the process one which was uplifting, developmental and wonderfully human. I highly recommend Ali as a coach and mentor.
  • A, UK (Business Coaching and mentoring in the training sector)
  • Ali was a co-host and facilitator on a retreat that we (the Sensitivita team) ran in south Spain near Malaga. Ali was fantastic throughout! Her workshop was really engaging, inclusive and provocative; she led the room through some challenging material and took the whole room with her. She was then really open and available to support, mentor and coach guests throughout the retreat when they had challenges or things they needed to discuss and process. I was especially impressed by Ali’s energy and desire to help where she could… from the smallest to the most challenging tasks… she was present and available throughout! … (Which was a real testament to her openness and integrity!) I look forward to working with her again.

  • A safe and welcoming experience. Ali allowed me to consider and reflect while offering such insightful and kind prompts to expand my thinking and support my development.
  • M, UK (Business Coaching in the personal development industry)
  • Ali was calm, focused and very intensely engaged with my thoughts and did not get carried away, but was driving me like a mother. Beautiful Coach that I have ever come across.
  • B, India (Life Coaching)
  • I had no expectations of life coaching and was, in fact, initially quite skeptical of the whole thing but I knew I needed some sort of support and guidance at this point in my life. In a sea of Brighton-based life coaches, Ali shone like a lighthouse and her beacon drew me in. She guided me through the storms, helped me unpack and examine the flotsam and jetsam and ensured I landed safely on the shore of my new, more structured, focused life.
