“In these troubled times a place of reflection and tranquility where you can learn to stop and pause. Step off the whirlwind of modern life for a moment, you'll not regret it.” Ian M.

Welcome to my coaching and mentoring page. 

It truly is a passion of mine to support men to live a life that is deeply aligned with their values, strengths, and meaning, to restore again a life filled with joy and clarity.

By choosing me as your coach you get the benefit of my own journey of restoring this sense of belonging, meaning, and purpose in life over the last decade as well as a qualified coach and mindfulness teacher.

The mission

Our mission at Alder Tree is to support men to restore a sense of belonging, to help us heal from our life transitions and traumas, to slow things down a little so that we can enjoy the ride, rather than getting to the end and wondering where that all went.  I have seen it far too many times now, lives lost to autopilot or a false sense of worth based on external validation. As a coach, my mission is also to deliver outstanding and professional coaching with deep empathy, caring, and support for my clients.

Top values

Authenticity and honesty - I was in my late twenties when I finally accepted who I truly was deep down, I hid who I truly was for many years, it took me quite some years to truly heal from those years of living a life that was not truly mine, right up to mid-age.  I was lucky to have met a wonderful mentor at this time who walked alongside me to explore what an authentic life felt like, to learn again to be comfortable in my own skin and this is truly what inspired me to retrain as a coach to support others restore their true authenticity, belonging and worth. 

Kindness and compassion - Each person we meet on this journey of life has come through challenges. Your journey with me will be free of judgment and filled with empathy, kindness, and compassion.

Simplicity and Freedom - Life is complicated enough, I have yet to meet anyone that has come to coaching and said "I would like to make my life more complicated please". The value of simplicity and freedom in life is profound.  It is one I am constantly working at and if you come along on this journey with me, it is something we will keep coming back to, reviewing and adjusting, exploring what a sense of freedom looks like.

My 8 session programme, Behind the Mask, allows us to put that deep work in, to really get to the heart of what it is that makes you tick, and also the time to put things into action.

I want my clients to have time to put these deep changes into practice, to take that time to fully understand, embrace and celebrate who they are and I am passionate about ongoing support, offering lots of ways you can benefit from this.

If this sounds interesting and the timing is right for you to feel more contented in life, living true to your values and strengths, then the next step would be for us to meet together on a zoom call and chat further prior to you making any commitment. 

I offer a complimentary 30 to 40-minute session with me so that we can have the time to get to know each other, to make sure we are a good fit.  These complimentary sessions are not a sales call, I am upfront with my pricing. It is more important that we both feel comfortable before starting the coaching journey together. If at the end of the session you don't want to continue, there is absolutely no pressure and hopefully, you will take something away from the time we have together.
