ABOUT ME

Successful coaching is all about a good fit between you and I. Read on to learn more about my story, my beliefs, my training, and who inspires me to do this work. 

By the way, on this site, these are my words and my photos, because I'm just as real and human as you are. An example of an Appreciative Inquiry mindset is the belief that there is beauty everywhere, you just have to learn to see things differently. That's why my photos are not perfect, they're meaningful, because they're mine. 

MY STORY

Hi, I'm Alex Arnold (she/her). I'm originally from France and I moved to the U.S. at 21. Since then, I've been through many transitions: marriage, adoption, divorce, starting graduate school in my 30's, shifting career at midlife, starting a business, getting a puppy, discovering that I am a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), learning to trust my intuition, getting back on a horse, and becoming a climate coach. I've learned that courage is not the absence of fear, but the ability to move ahead in spite of it. 

You can read more about me in this interview

In a nutshell:
I am introverted and highly sensitive
I am overwhelmed by the climate crisis
I have made it through many transitions
I believe change is possible
I trust science and intuition alike

MY INFLUENCERS

Another lesson I've learned is that you can't do it alone. We all need a tribe. Here are some of my influencers:

MY TRAINING

  • I completed a two-year coach training program rooted in Positive Psychology through MentorCoach.

  • I am currently enrolled in an ICF-accredited Climate Change Coaching Training program through Climate Change Coaches

  • I abide by the APA’s (American Psychological Association) Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct

  • I hold a Master's in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from Southern New Hampshire University

  • I also hold a Master's in Human Relations and Organization Development from Champlain College
