About Ali Plowright

Ali Plowright has been working with individuals aboutimage and groups for 16 years. Her interest comes from a deep desire to understand what being Human really means. How relationships, in many contexts, work and how our early experience of life shapes us, or not! Her own journey through life has had many ups and downs and she uses that knowledge, wisdom, intuition and learned skills to enable others to make a difference to their lives, both corporately and therapeutically.

Its difficult to say exactly what Ali does…. you could say she’s a psychotherapist, a coach or a facilitator and she is all of those and much, much more! She asks difficult questions and then offers support while you find and manage the tricky answers… Ali brings an outside approach, a creative thinking partner, an independent ear, fresh insight…. Ali supports many people in many contexts and works both face to face and over the telephone.

Ali’s life began in a family of seven children and at a very early age she realised that she was an observer and a searcher. She observed language, actions and relationships and searched for meaning and sense. What she found didn’t make a lot of sense at all until she began her own therapy and ultimately her training which led her to work with others.

Ali has a private practice in Derbyshire and also works throughout the UK and overseas. Ali works on a 1 2 1 basis, facilitates and runs workshops. The focus of sessions is always to bring understanding through honesty, self-discovery and self-leadership.

Ali’s young life was centred around a family business and she grew up understanding the benefits and the stresses that that brought. She has had involvement at Board level with two fast growing companies and understands the need for support, cohesion, congruence and acknowledgement. Ali supports CEO’s, MD’s and those progressing professionally. Ali also feels that in many businesses today staff are seen as a cost rather than an asset and the Human Element of the business can be overlooked. This can lead to low morale, productivity and ultimately low sales. Therefore, Ali is interested in working alongside individuals, teams and groups who need support to achieve and move forward.

Ali believes that her skill can only grow as she continues to learn from those she respects. She knows that for her to give the best of her ability to you she has a duty to keep researching and learning for herself, honing her old skills and gathering new ones.
