Alive and Thrive Wellbeing Limited (ATW) evolved from Approaches for Performance Excellence Limited (AFPE) that was established in 2010. Through working closely with many organisations on topics such as leadership and management, diversity and inclusion, and employee engagement, it became increasingly apparent that to make real progress all organisations need to focus their energy more directly on the individual. Coaching managers has therefore become the prime focus of where we want to be available for others.
Hi, my name is Tom. I specialise in coaching managers and look forward to supporting you wherever you are in your journey.
You may have just been promoted, or perhaps appointed to a new post or organisation. You might be in middle or senior management. Whatever your unique situation each has its own responsibilities and challenges. Thes may relate to your role, relationships, the level of support you receive, your degree of autonomy, your resilience to the demands being placed upon you, the change taking place at work or home, your overall wellbeing, health and happiness, or something else. You may be looking for a new role or job in management. Wherever you are on your management road I'm here to help you clear the mist, untie the knots, and creatively work out some achievable solutions to your issues.
My background was in the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) that I left as a chief inspector. Operationally I received three leadership commendations and the overall focus of my career revolved around partnership, working with local government and diverse communities. This culminated in managing the MPS Diversity and Inclusion Teams. I became involved in Learning and Development and through various roles and supportive training coached many managers. Having secured an MBA and working strategically around people in leadership and management in the sphere of learning and development I became a Fellow with the CIPD.
I was a Lead Assessor for 21 years using the European Foundation Quality Management Excellence Model (EFQM). This involved strategic assessment in a range of public, private and not-or-profit organisations. Upon leaving the police I founded the my own consultancy business.
I reinforced my coaching skills as a FIRO™coach and later through the Institute of Leadership and Management specialised in neurochemistry aspect of coaching to Level 5. I am a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC).
I have provided visiting lecturer support to three London universities in relation to an MBA programme, Level 7 HRM post graduate programme, and diversity and Inclusion programmes.
Hi, my name is Catherine and I am a wellbeing coach. At the present I am completing a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology and Psychology Coaching and am a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC).
My interest in assisting people stems from a career in education formerly teaching and coaching swimming and latterly delivering speech and language therapy to pupils with autism. I have been inspired by the humanistic psychology approach of Carl Rogers i.e. the self-actualisation of individuals through their own realisation and capabilities. I will listen in a non-judgmental, collaborative manner and ask questions with a willingness from you to consider achievable aspirations. Together with the tools and evidence based techniques of positive psychology there is a focus on strengths not weaknesses to help you live and thrive at being your best self.
Positive psychology, although relatively new in the field of psychology (founded by Martin Seligman in 1998), has provided people with a way forward that no longer assumes a position of ill-health. The opportunity to build on one's strengths and the support to make changes provide confidence.
Positive psychology focuses on how positivity can develop your motivation and wellbeing. Time is given for you to unravel a particular issue in a confidential environment. Examples of my clients include:-
