Alexandra Archer | Holistic Lifestyle Coach & Therapist | About Me
Hello & welcome to more about me & my Power of Three philosophies.
My name is Alexandra Archer and I am a Holistic Lifestyle Coach. I have over 2 decades of experience coaching abundant health & happiness to people from all walks of life. People just like you who want to level up their lives & create the life of their dreams.
I am 54 years of age & practice as a Holistic Lifestyle Coach & Therapist. Officially I am a Counsellor, Nutritionist, NLP & EFT Practitioner, energy healer & holistic body worker. Unofficially I am your guide, healer, teacher, confidante & coach loaded with tools, skills & experience for all your mental, physical & spiritual development needs.
The unique Power of Three holistic approach is the difference that makes the difference.
My love of holistic healing grew out of my fascination with peoples and cultures covered in National Geographic Magazines and David Attenborough television programmes. As a child, I promised myself that one day I too would explore these amazing places.
So, after a time working in Corporate London I’d saved enough money to begin my adventures. For the next 12months I travelled across three continents with my best friend Donna and had an absolute ball. From bungee jumping off the original Hacker Bridge in New Zealand to staying with a tribal King in a Fijian village.
Although I hadn’t gone looking for self-healing and spirituality I couldn’t help but be affected by the people I met. It was obvious to me that although they were less materially well off than me they had an energy, generosity and authentic spiritual side to everyday life that was inspiring and infectious.
Training & Travelling
Whatever they had I wanted some of it! So, I made it my mission to seek out masters of meditation, shamen, midwives, herbalists, massage gurus & spiritual healers so I could learn from the best in the most authentic environments possible.
For the next 10 years I was blessed to meet exactly the right teacher at exactly the right time, from a Lomi Lomi master on the beaches of Hawaii to the Kalahari Bushmen who gave me my own bushmen name.
While it might not be considered a conventional route to training by the time I returned to the UK I had acquired a diverse and powerful skill set that put me in a unique position to start my career as a Holistic Lifestyle Coach.
Following this I embarked on several years of more traditional training here in the UK, qualifying in Coaching and Counselling, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) & Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). Also completing formal training in some of the things I’d mastered during my travels, such as Reiki, Chrystal Healing & Meditation.
10 Years in the Making
By 2003 I was fully equipped with all the skills, wisdom and experience needed to build a successful holistic coaching and therapy practice.
I am now based in the beautiful Cotswolds and work face to face with clients from Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, Worcester and beyond and of course online clients from across the UK and the world. I work with individuals, couples, families & small groups on a wide range of issues from auto immune illnesses to work-life imbalances, over-indulgent & addictive conditions to broken hearts & lost souls.
Throughout my time working in this field I’ve come to realise more and more how essential it is to take a holistic approach when helping and supporting people. That’s why my programs and sessions always include and combine Body work, Mind work and Spiritual Development. For local clients that visit my premises in Gloucester/Cheltenham that could mean combining a Lomi Lomi massage with a coaching/therapy session and a meditation or guided visualisation. For online clients the body work element could come in the form of dietary and exercise programs or my proprietary self-care techniques. Either way it is imperative that I work with clients who are willing to work holistically.
What is My Power of Three Method?
My Power of Three Holistic Living Life methods are built on the 3 core pillars of A, B & C. Each pillar holistically underpins Mind, Body & Spirit for the Inner-Self, Outer-Self & Higher-Self.
Awareness – We have to begin with AWARENESS, knowing where we are at, how we feel in that moment or situation, where we would like to go & how we would like to feel are invaluable, because just like a map we cannot get anywhere without knowing our starting point. Within AWARENESS there is also ACCEPTANCE, we need to embrace ourselves for who we are & where we are at right now.
Balance – Every day (possibly even every minute) we are taking in our experience of day to day living through sources that aren’t necessarily good or best for us. So what we see, hear & feel (consciously & unconsciously) may contain a lot of negativity. Therefore, when we try to put positivity into our lives it’s no wonder it can have little to no effect because the negative that has built up over time is simply too much for the drops of positivity to have any long lasting effect. That’s why I address balance in everything we do.
Connection – You know how you feel loved & supported when you connect to family & friends well the same is true when we feel connected to our whole selves. We are much better able to look out for ourselves, make good decisions & live well to our full potential when we feel fully connected.
So that’s me & mine… A unique, no nonsense health & happiness lifestyle coach that could be in your life & on your side.
As we all are, I am a work in progress… I am real, beautifully-flawed, curious beyond reason & absolutely dedicated to helping you achieve the life and future you deserve.
In LOVE & LITE
