About Alan

I became an executive leadership coach in 2007. Over the course of 20 years in senior and executive leadership positions, I‘ve been fortunate enough to have a coach ‘walking beside me’. When I’ve grappled with difficult professional issues, feelings of isolation, self-doubt and sleepless nights I’ve had powerful conversations with my coach. As a qualified business and executive leadership coach, I now have the privilege of walking beside senior leaders who want to keep on top of their game. Since becoming a coach, I have always had a coaching supervisor. In 2017 I qualified as a coaching supervisor, as the next step in my own professional journey.

We work in an increasingly busy environment, where people have access to us 24 hours a day. An increasing amount of evidence-based research shows that senior leaders who take time-out to reflect have increased levels of wellbeing and they are more productive. As a senior leader, it is difficult to find quality thinking time or have someone you can talk things through with. A good coach will have a coaching supervisor, to develop their coaching practice. My clients and I have confidential conversations, where they have time and space to reflect and we work through their issues. From their feedback, clients enjoy my straight-talking style and ability to get to the heart of a matter quickly. 

I’m a Chartered Manager and hold a postgraduate diploma in strategic management. I am a qualified business & executive leadership coach and coaching supervisor; with a diploma from the Academy of Executive Coaching in London and a level 7 certificate from the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM). Additionally, I have a master’s degree in education and am an accredited Workplace and Employment Mediator. If you’re interested in psychometric testing, I’m qualified with the British Psychological Society (BPS) to carry out assessments by leading providers.

I consider myself lucky to work with smart, ambitious people, and I take great pleasure in watching them succeed.

While I always respect the confidentiality of my clients, a few have granted me permission to share their thoughts.

“Alan's an excellent coach - straight to the point whilst allowing time to reflect and explore possibilities. He helped me unblock a number of issues and swiftly got things motoring again!. Thanks Alan!.”
"Alan has been working with my company for the last 12 months and has assisted us in making some pretty bold progressive changes and helped us to identify and see the end goal. I would have no hesitation to recommend him to a business considering growing, as I know that he will be able to add value and become cost neutral."
"Alan's style of coaching is very practical and inspiring to say the least and I would recommend Alan to anyone seeking professional coaching to reach their next level of achievement personally and professionally."
"The coaching sessions with Alan are relaxed and insightful, but above all relevant and extremely useful. Alan invests time to understand every issue and pushes you to think laterally about the solutions. The result is that I have grown in confidence and understand not only my own behaviour but those around me."
