Ready to feel ALIVE again?
Free yourself with this gorgeous online course,
packed with practical wisdom
This online, self-led, interactive and multi-media programme takes you on a development journey over 11 wisdom packed modules.
Stop feeling stuck, flat, lost, out of balance, tired and frustrated
And instead feel ALIVE.
You will gain more:
Appreciation and acceptance of yourself and your strengths;
Love of life and enjoyment day to day, and feel renewed and replenished;
Insight into what’s been holding you back and how to overcome those barriers;
Vision and clarity about what’s most important to you and how to rebalance your life;
Exercises and practical tools you can use over and over to meet everyday challenges with resilience and a greater sense of well-being.
Sooo many people find themselves just simply existing and feeling lost and directionless.
So, I’ve distilled my learnings over my 13+ years as a coach, and combined them with the latest thinking and research in neurobiology, psychology and wellbeing.
I believe with the right support, we all have the capability to be a fuller, better version of ourselves.
And massively increase our positive impact on those around us, our communities and indeed the world.
You are more than you know – work through this programme to find out how.
The ALIVE Programme modules include:
About your coaching
An introduction to using a virtual, self-guided coaching package and some hints on how to get the best out of it.
About you now
Take a step back to see the bigger picture of the areas you give the most time, energy and attention to; understand what’s contributing to how you feel now
Where you'd like to be
Thought provoking questions and tools to help you get a clear picture of how you’d like life, and yourself, to be.
Rediscover the values that guide your life. Understand where and why conflicts arise, and why we sometimes end up losing sight of the very things that motivate us and make us the most happy.
We can spend so much time focusing on what we’re not good at, or not doing, that we lose sight of what we do really well. If values are the fuel for the journey, our strengths are the vehicle we have available to travel in!
What's holding you back
Time to discover and unravel the decisions and beliefs you’ve made about yourself that have been limiting your options and holding you back
We can’t always control what happens to us, but we can learn how to control how we wish to respond. This module will give you practical techniques for dealing with all that life can throw at you.
We can’t control them either! Now you’ve learned how to transform your relationship with yourself, you’ll be abe to apply it to transform your relationships with those around you too.
Making it happen
Your commitment to yourself, techniques and tips, experimentation and play, handling procrastination, reflection, adjustment and practice.
Links, articles, and videos that build on what we’ve covered.

I’m Rachel Anderson and I’ll be your virtual coach through The ALIVE Programme.
I want to share with you what I’ve learned over the last 13 years about how to live a life that’s happier, more fulfilling and successful – not only from working with hundreds of coaching clients, but also from my own journey.
You see, on the outside I appeared to have it all – good job, happy marriage, lovely kids, great house.
But inside I was a mess of doubt, guilt, shame and unhappiness. I knew the problem lay within me; I was frustrated and I seemed powerless to change.
Procrastination, lack of discipline, lack of energy and just too much else to do – running around seeing to everyone else’s needs and never having time to see to myself.
My book shelves were groaning under the weight of all the self-help books (‘shelf-help’ more like!)
Today, I’m glad to say, it’s very different.
I love my life; I had the courage to make a huge direction shift in my career (from growing trees to growing people – but that’s a story for another day!), built a successful business and ‘integrated life’ so I’m there for my growing family, as well as finding time for my own wellbeing and personal growth.
I’m able to contribute and give back, actively supporting charities like Action for Happiness and being a host family for Friends of Chernobyl’s Children.
I feel successful and at peace with myself (even if my sneaky inner critic and perfectionist still make occasional appearances).
I’ve been able to face significant personal challenges with resilience, humour and perspective.
I know what I want, I know who I am, I’m clear and focussed about the future whilst enjoying every moment of the present.
And I want that for you too.
“Very supportive, with the right pace and able to make a step by step development. A real path of self-discovery supported by a “non-judging” eye, highlighting the small improvement achieved step by step thus motivating me during the process.”
“Astonishing empathy, twinned with superb listening, questioning and coaching mastery. Rachel’s ability to – gently and with great care – challenge, provoke and guide made my coaching experience both deeply helpful and far better than I expected. I would, and will, recommend her very happily.”
David Haines, Chief Talent Officer
“A unique experience and very valuable inputs. Rachel condensed “key words” and guidance during our discussions in an amazing way. I felt full openness and trust in her and I’m so grateful for the great experience, inspiration and challenges (in the good way:) The biggest value for me is getting “in peace” with myself, gaining more confidence and harmony/balance for me which I strongly believe will be felt/shared with the team”
“I found the time with Rachel extremely valuable. It offered me the opportunity to pause, take stock and re-evaluate. It was also a chance to reflect on the positives, to acknowledge how I had progressed and celebrate my achievements. It has increased my self-awareness, my acceptance of self-worth and has given me tools to reflect on past experiences as well as future visioning to help me shape my personal journey”
“The coaching support Rachel provided has been transformational. It helped that I was ready for this exploration, however if Rachel had not been so skilful I may not have been so open or noticed so many things. I quickly trusted her and found my time with her invaluable, insightful and non-judgemental. Having the focus of regular calls worked for me. Rachel was able to tune in and play back effectively. Things she noticed really helped me and I felt extremely comfortable being completely open with her.”
“I’m so glad I trusted the feeling that told me, amongst a roomful of coaches, that Rachel was the one to work with. She is calm, direct and intuitive and always helps me to reset my focus. At one point I thought I couldn’t afford to work with her, now I know that I can’t afford not to.”
Jenny Chambers, Oxfordshire
“Looking back from my first session to now there has been a significant shift in; my confidence, ability to be self-aware, motivation to self-reflect and ability to lead.”
“Self-awareness and self-confidence especially under stress and through difficult times.”
“Each time I finished the session either with a new way of thinking/working or more invigorated that I was on the right path. I found the sessions with Rachel to be excellent and would rate Rachel highly as a coach, a great listener, most certainly in the moment with me, very understanding, challenging and very easy to talk to. I completed a lot of personal soul searching and learnt a lot about myself – how I operate, react and function and have made changes that have been of great benefit both in work and my personal life. I believe I now deliver greater value to the conversations I have with my team which in turn has significantly improved their thinking/actions and the overall moral of the group. What I have learned will stay with me forever.”
“Being a better leader starts by better understand myself. I found out about my personal engine, motivation and passion which I was not fully aware before. This is helping me now to be better at developing people around me.”
Jean Baptiste Rubens
“My coaching with Rachel enabled me to re-discover my inherent strengths that I was able to re-apply during my new challenges.”
“The value for me has been around stepping out of the hectic day job to re-evaluate my approach and how I can better work with the business to challenge its ways of working and decision making. It’s given me more insight into what I bring to the table and how I can utilise this strength more effectively.”
“Definitely feeling more confident and less stressed”
“The coaching programme and Rachel in particular have given me the confidence and self-belief in my abilities.”
