About me

Executive Coach & Coach Supervisor - Westerham, Sevenoaks & London

I work with individuals and organisations worldwide, from executives, professionals, business owners to individuals and practitioners in training.

My approach is evidence based and my strengths are rooted in an ability to draw on an exceptional wealth of combined professional skills, experience and techniques from multi-disciplines to specifically tailor people-based, manageable solutions to meet the specific needs of my clients.

An Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and one of the first Chartered Coaching Psychologists in the world, I have the scientific understanding of how people think, feel, and behave combined with over 25 years of experience working as, and with senior leaders, middle managers and those earlier in their careers.

I have direct experience of leading teams within the private sector in FMCG, transport and change management and within the public sector in finance and education and understand the demands and context of organisations first hand.

In addition to this, I have more than a decade of experience as a university lecturer, teaching business studies and psychology enabling me to distil and apply complex material in an approachable and meaningful way.

My clients benefit from:
The assurance that comes with a professionally recognised leading practitioner at the forefront of the discipline.

Access to and application of proven coaching approaches, backed by training, qualification and experience.

An integrated approach that draws on expertise and approaches from various disciplines across organisational psychology, coaching, management, and HR.

Independent and extensive psychometric knowledge, skills and application.

I am a British Psychological Society Coaching Assessor, Registered Applied Psychology Practice Supervisor and coach supervisor.

My supervision offers coaches a formal process of professional support and a confidential space in which they can explore their practice and develop their confidence and creativity. Through interactive reflective practice. Using a range of supervisory methods and approaches, I help coaches bring value to their stakeholders and those connected with their work, and help them to explore, and evaluate their practice and develop.

I first started working with Alison a few years ago when I had been promoted to a Senior Leadership role and was struggling with imposter syndrome, and a fear of presenting to large numbers. Alison was quick to understand the problem, coming up with a detailed action plan which we implemented together over the next few months. Alison’s years of experience and accreditations in the field really shines through when you work with her. She employs a wide variety of techniques, teaching and guidance from breathing techniques and visualisation, to body language, and a whole host of psychological techniques. Her non-judgmental, calm and encouraging approach made me realise it was ok to be out of my comfort zone. After each session, I was left feeling more confident, positive, and excited about the future. Fast forward six months and I was not only able to present confidently, but also received extensive positive feedback from the Senior Leadership Team and the wider business, leading to be recognised formally for being an inspirational woman in leadership. I continue to work to Alison to this day and would highly recommend her to anyone needing help with their career. She really does go above and beyond with her mentoring, teaching and guidance and working with Alison will not be a decision you regret. EMEA Finance Director.


Alison has the ability to challenge me and ask questions that are pertinent and insightful. I have always found her to be non-judgemental, supportive and honest in her feedback and I appreciate her solution-focussed approach. She has been a very significant sounding board and an integral element for my personal growth and professional development. C.D. Head Teacher
