About Alison

Your ICF Professional Certified Coach.

Hello, I’m Alison Smith, and I’m not just a Resilience Coach – I’m also the proud founder of The Thrive Designer. My journey in coaching has led me to become an ICF Professional Certified Coach, and my true passion lies in helping individuals and organizations create systems that pave the way for thriving.

Over the course of nearly a decade as a resilience coach, I’ve had the privilege of dedicating thousands of hours to support clients facing burnout across various fields and functions. I want you to know that, as a fellow human, I’ve walked a similar path, understanding the challenges and triumphs that come with it.

When I step onto the stage during my speaking engagements, I’m not just sharing knowledge – I’m sharing a profound truth. I’ve discovered the incredible power of those seemingly small acts of resilience, and I believe wholeheartedly in their potential to transform lives.

But I’m not only here to inspire through speaking. I also offer personalized coaching services designed to guide you on your unique journey to thriving. Together, we’ll explore those small yet powerful steps of resilience, empowering you to not only survive but truly thrive in both your work and your life. Let’s embark on this transformative journey together, where coaching becomes the compass that directs you towards a brighter, more fulfilling future.
