"I wish I had done this years ago!"
Read about how my clients, have achieved more fulfilling career choices, or made clear decisions about their future with my help.
In the autumn of 2010, I was facing my senior year with poor organisational skills and an inability to concentrate and focus on my class work. I needed someone to work with me to help me put forward a confident application and prepare myself for the upcoming exams.
Over the next year Alice Jones showed me my strengths and how to go about maximizing my potential, and as a result of this I had a much easier time understanding my coursework which resulted in a sudden improvement of my grades.
Thanks to Alice Jones, I am part of a minority fortunate enough to go to university in 2011. Alice Jones is a valuable individual who I would highly recommend for any student or organisation seeking to improve their weaknesses as the crucial hours I have spent with her have led me to become an academic achiever.
Alice is a highly skilled, intuitive coach, who is passionate about helping young people realise and achieve their full potential. Key to Alice’s success is that she builds strong rapport with her students, through her genuine interest, guidance and understanding.
This combined with her professional and objective approach, inspires and motivates her students to achieve their full potential. Alice, your meeting with Laura has been like an injection, she has been busy emailing, packing and diarising stuff!
I failed my first year at Bath and it knocked all my confidence. Alice was recommended to my mum through another student. Alice spent a long time working with me and got me to understand that the reason I failed my course was that I was not motivated or passionate about the degree I was taking.
She helped me build my confidence back up and together we worked through all the things that were causing me stress. I am now at another university, taking a degree I absolutely love and I am very happy and settled. Alice still works with me and is helping me with networking and putting a career plan together.
Alice is, in my view, quite simply brilliant. A good listener and easy to work with, she is a productive and enthusiastic sounding board. Alice has helped me work around problems and to think more expansively about things that would have been more of a struggle to achieve alone. The A Levels vs. International Baccalaureate decision, being one of the bigger dilemmas in my life, was made simple by Alice’s logical and proactive approach. By helping me explore my character, particular interests and with some background research and comparison of options, I was left clear in my mind what I wanted to do.
Interviews are disastrous for me, ordinarily. “Selling myself,” doesn’t come easily but some preparation in learning to articulate what I wanted to say in a meaningful, but not arrogant way, was extremely helpful.
Alice by no means does all the work, that would be self defeating. She does though, provide a filter for all the noise and the tools to distil thoughts down to simple aims and then to build the platform from which to achieve them.
Before I met Alice, I wasn't at all sure of how I was going to even approach the up coming University and course choices, I only had a half hearted idea that I was going to carry on with art, starting with a foundation course. However after just a few sessions we began to assess my options, and through some soul searching, managed to narrow down the course I really wanted to take.
Although a lot of the decisions I made were my own, Alice has always been there to push me, keep my aims high, and believing in my potential. I am almost finished with the course of sessions now, and Alice's help has been invaluable, helping me find work experience, and with her extensive network of friends, introducing me to useful contacts. The course has helped me to become more confident in my abilities, and to not be weary of the future. Without this course, I know that I would not be where I am now.
I have found the career coaching very helpful, it has helped me to broaden my outlook on what I can achieve. This was especially true over last summer.
Alice helped me to organize work experience and gave me brilliant ideas such as working in a museum, something that I would have had no idea how to organize alone. Her enthusiasm is infectious and this combined with all her ideas helps me consider and be more open to trying new things. When it came to choosing universities and doing my personal statement, Alice was able to provide different opinion and give different insights compared to what I get at school.
Alice Jones has been coaching Michael for the last year to help him with school work, in preparing for International Baccalaureate exams, and in gaining a place at University.
Alice’s work was enormously successful, and Michael now has a place at one of the Universities of his choice under UCAS. Alice helped Michael to get well organised in structuring his time and priorities. She also coached him to take the initiative and build on his confidence. She encouraged him to believe that he could achieve challenging goals.
This was all done in a relaxed environment, creating a continuously positive approach, with an underlying belief in never giving up. She combines cutting edge management consulting techniques, with a through understanding of children’s problems and challenges. She also understands the University application process, with all its complexities and unwritten processes.
We would recommend Alice to anyone seeking to “raise the bar” at school and achieve their goals.
