Empathic Leadership Crucibles

Six weeks. Super Streamlined. Extremely Powerful.

I’ve been honing my self care tactics for years, but the rubber has really hit the road in the last 12 months.

The biggest shift? Letting myself be profoundly seen and loved in ways I never thought possible. This January I’m sharing the most powerful self-care practice I have, so you can step into your role as a leader, in your work, your community and your personal life.

If you are highly sensitive, compassionate and ready to step into leadership in every area of your life, you need this on your Christmas list. If your confidence is holding you back, or your juggling motherhood and conscious parenting, these calls will. TRANSFORM you so you can meet your ambitious goals without burning out or selling out. 


“a pot which can be heated to high temperatures to clear off impurities and make something more powerful or beautiful.”  

This is NOT a Theory Call

I keep being blown away by the power of coming together to clear our collective stuff and rise strong. It is in facing the hard stuff (together) that we access our power. 

These six weeks are 100% experiential and transformative. There’s no reading, no homework. All that is required is that you show up to the calls with a willingness to LISTEN and BE VULNERABLE.

The BIGGEST shift in my confidence and fulfillment, both in my personal and work life this year has been creating safe spaces to be deeply vulnerable about the places I struggle.

How it works:

Over the six weeks you, me and up to five other humans will take a collective dive into the hurts, habits and beliefs that are getting in the way of you taking deep care of yourself, stepping up, standing up and leading in your work, your relationships and your life with authority and ease.

Each call will:

  • confirm deeply that YOU ARE GOOD and YOU GOT THIS

  • clear the precise hurts and patterns that you are bumping against

  • enable you to step into leadership in your life and your work

We’ll focus on a different theme each week, and you’ll have time, with the full support of the group, to explore this topic on your own terms. You’ll release shame, fear, and apathy. You’ll access deep self love and a profound sense of connectedness. And you’ll work safely, gently, at your own pace and in a tight container of confidentiality.


Sundays 930-1045am GMT

January 13, 20, 27 and February 3, 10, 17

This is for you if:

  • You have big goals AND a big heart – and the second one keeps getting in the way of the first!

  • You are committed to raising conscious children and wonder how the *^!* you’re supposed to do that  AND make a fulfilling living?!

  • Although many things are going well, despite all your best intentions and effort there is a thread where you keep running on the same loop of frustration, limitation and self-sabotage .

  • It’s especially good for mama’s juggling ambitious goals with intense care responsibilities (high needs kids/conscious parenting, community leadership etc) or strong empathic tendencies (you feel everything deeply, you’re always listening to everyone’s problems).

We’ll work on:

>> Leading with Confidence

>> The Right to Rest: Self-Care and Getting the Balance Right

>> Making Decisions: Saying No, Saying Yes

>> The Pleasure Principle: Leading from your Joy

>> Guilt, Shame and Responsibility

>> Routines and Rituals: Getting the Big things Right


Sundays 6-715pm GMT

January 13, 20, 27 and February 3, 10, 17

This is for you if:

  • Working to hit big goals while taking everyone’s needs into consideration is making you more cautious than you’d like to be.

  • You’d like to be seen more but the idea terrifies you.

  • You ever feel unworthy, not enough or ashamed of how you look and this stops you from taking risks.

  • You find yourself in power struggles or envious of others.

We’ll work on:

>> Body Image and Sexuality

>> Resistance and entering the stretch zone

>> Playing safe, taking risks and being supported

>> Imposter Syndrome

>> Jealousy and Competition

Alice has a magical capacity to pull the greatness out of me. ” 

Roma Norriss, Parenting Expert

You have an innate gift for deeply seeing the gifts of others. ” 

Emily Fuller, Midwife

Don’t just take my word for it!

Here’s more things clients have said about my work:

Wow what a journey. I feel highly honoured. A real Joy and contentment. Thank you for your amazing respect, connectedness and insight – I felt safe in your hands. ” 

Amy Houghton


Alice has the unique ability to know when to go deep and get right to the heart of what’s happening and when to strip out the fluff, fuzz and fog and give practical, straight up advice just when it’s needed. ” 

Sarah Kent

Alice has a magical capacity to pull the greatness out of me. She helps me see aspects of myself that I had perceived as flaws, as my in fact greatest strengths. Connecting with what I’m good at has been a relief and allows me to focus my energy on what I do best. I always feel so good about myself, so limitless under the warmth of Alice’s generous attention.

She connects me with my divinity so that I can remember the vast potential available to me. In practical terms, Alice has helped me realise my authentic value and charge really well for my services, in a female dominant sector where the culture is to undervalue. I had been sitting on a lot of resource for a successful business, but not had the clarity and focus to apply and get results for all the work I was putting in.

Effectively I have been pulling 70 hour weeks, passionately, with plenty of clients, yet somehow not quite getting a good return financially. Alice picked out from all the noise a viable and simplified way forward. Instead of all the scheming and unknowns and chaos that went into my do-everything-all-at-once strategy.

I now have a clear business plan that I’m confident will create a proper income. I know exactly what I want to say yes or no to. I don’t need to waste thought working anything out: that frees up a great deal of energy, which I can now apply more intentionally. I feel greatly relieved to know what I’m good at, exactly what I’m doing, have a clear strategy to keep plugging away at and know where my income is coming from.

Roma Norriss, Parenting Expert

I saw Alice for a session a few weeks after I started my business. I was feeling a little lost regarding next steps. She helped me to focus on my strengths and look at ways that I can to network to gain new connections within my sector to get clients. When I left the session I was more focused and was able to take action to move forward in my business. ” 

Deirdre Simspon, Special Educational Needs Lawyer

This is coaching particularly for women wanting to own their power and be at the helm of their lives.

You gave me permission to try things out, get things wrong and be on a learning curve. To step into my power and make a mess as part of the process. Being held as someone that can create, that has permission to be BIG! The sense of being celebrated for all that gives me courage and self respect.

I so appreciate your ability to hold the shadowy aspects of my feelings without it impacting on the way you can hold the possibilities in my future. I feel the difficulties are honoured and can be included in the positive stuff as evidence of strengths and growth. I think that is a very unique and a powerfully feminine way of working.

I chose you because you are someone creating against the background of difficult circumstances and refusing to be defined by them. I know you understand my experience. I appreciate your generosity and you have attention of a very high quality. I felt sparked up by your intelligence and wide knowledge.

I am very grateful to your presence in my life, you are a real gift and I’m excited about working with you more in the future. Much love Carolyn Xxx

Carolyn Clitheroe, Holistic Decluttering Consultant

I got a huge amount of clarity around what you saw in me and how you pulled it out, and then repackaged it and gave it back to me. ” 

Zillah Engerran, Performance Artist

Hi Alice, thank you for your loving, heart felt, sincere support over the last few months. You have such a fluid, intuitive way of responding to my needs.

Before I started working with you I was feeling very anxious and nervous a lot of the time. I would be constantly worrying about other people’s problems along with my own – but feeling powerless to do anything.

I now am able to be with my feelings and allow myself space to feel and move through them in their own time. The anxiety is a lot less. I am thinking about myself in a new way: I know I can create a positive way of working that works for me and my strengths.

Hannah Roberts, Dancer

Thank you for your help and guidance!!! Yesterday was an especially nourishing session for me! I’m so excited to be allowed to love those bits I was fighting with for so long. Now this is just lovely, oh so lovely… ” 

Pavla Kislerova, Sustainability Activist
