Meet Helen Attridge
Hi, my name is Helen Attridge, founder of ALCN and creator of the Conscious Change Coaching Method® and the Inner Alignment Map™.
I’ve been in the coaching and personal development industry for over 30 years, and have worked with some of the most respected leaders in the field of personal transformation, as a coach, trainer and founder of an internationally acclaimed coach training organization.
This coaching method is the culmination of my 30+ years of experience working with thousands of leaders, change makers, and international organizations from around the world in all aspects of coaching—from life coaching to business coaching to executive and leadership coaching.
What a journey coaching has turned out to be for me, both personally and professionally! Coaching and NLP transformed my life in so many ways.
Read more about my journey….
While working at the Hoffman Institute as their Graduate Director and in house coach, a position I loved, I was facilitating a training program for their graduates when someone asked me in a break if I was a life coach. I jokingly said “no, but I bet I would be a good one” she affirmed back that I would indeed be a great life coach.
From there, I trained and certified as a coach with one of the ICF certified coach training companies, and began to explore a number of different niches in the coaching industry, from financial coaching for women to pre-wedding day programs for couples, and many things in between.
After a number of years of exploration and development while building a successful coaching business, I discovered the transformative power of NLP through being invited to be one of the first ICF certified coaches to be trained by Tony Robbins. This is where I entered the executive coaching market and began coaching C level executives internationally.
After 3 years with the Tony Robbins company, I decided to study the roots of NLP and enrolled in an NLP Practitioner Training with the NLP Institute of California. This took me on a 18-month NLP Certification journey in learning all there is to learn about NLP and how our brains work.
For me, NLP was the missing piece from my original coach training and gave me the skills I knew I needed to help clients create long term change. In my first 6 month training program, the owners of NLP Institute Tim and Kris Halbom asked me if I would join their coaching faculty and teach for them in China.
I trained in Mexico, China, Europe and in the US for the NLP Institute. Having had a lot of experience in the global marketplace I kept taking all kinds of new ideas to Tim and Kris about how to make the coaching program really work across cultures.
I realized how much I loved working internationalIy in new and developing markets. I also had the great privilege of developing mentor programs to help the first coaches in Asia and Central America get ICF credentialed, many of who now run their own coach training programs.
It was through this experience that the foundation of ALCN was formed.
At the Academy of Leadership Coaching & NLP (ALCN), I have had the privilege of training coaches and leaders from around the world in all aspects of coaching, from life coaching to business coaching to executive and leadership coaching.
It is my goal to empower coaches and leaders to achieve their visions, dreams and wildest aspirations. Now a veteran of the coach training and leadership development field, I have been called upon to coach entrepreneurs, philanthropists, and leaders from diverse fields and business acumen to achieve next-level growth and wide-ranging positive change.
I have worked hard to build ALCN into an organization that grants students way more than the Gold Standard in the Coaching field. When I created the Conscious Change Coaching Method® and the Inner Alignment Map®, the models were created to support international students in understanding and being able to translate coaching skills into their own culture.
What I see in our training programs is how powerful these methods are at supporting ALCN coaches to create major personal transformation in their own life, both during the training and in their continued growth as they integrate and use the tools with themselves and their clients.
I have presented on NLP and Leadership at Stanford Graduate School of Business and at Peking University Platform in Beijing. I have facilitated coach training programs and leadership development programs around the world and am a featured author in the book Ready, Aim, Influence, an international bestseller in the top 10 of Amazon’s Hot Releases in the Business & Investing section.
I consider myself a global citizen and a lifelong learner. My personal mission is to grow, love and passionately contribute to the lives of others.
It’s great to welcome you here to ALCN, whether you’re just discovering us or a long-term member of our community. I look forward to connecting with you and hearing more about your journey of impact and transformation.

Retiring from professional sport in the late 90s, he moved into the corporate world and enjoyed a meteoric career progression finding that his discipline and self-motivation to strive for peak performance was easily transferred into this new corporate environment.

Trevor has seen how somatic coaching can make a difference to self, our relationship to colleagues, to friends, within organizations and more broadly to peoples’ community, society and ultimately the planet.
His areas of expertise and passion in transformational coaching are within: leadership, personal growth, resilience and holistic wellbeing.

Today, she has her own business that encompasses coaching, ceremonial work and movement as pillars in the process of conscious change.

Her training in Somatics and NLP gave her the tools to remember that the body holds the key.

Kelly helps her clients shape their dreams into reality by identifying where they are off key and guiding them to find harmony within.
As a body-based practitioner, Kelly helps clients to sense, feel and drop into the body - and from this place, heal, re-wire and fall back in love with themselves, and re-emerge.

Ever heard of Zoom fatigue? Yeah. It’s a thing. We’re all Zoomed out at this point! That’s why we created this all-in-one coaching, mentoring, training program to support you at every step of the way.
Our learning model follows the 80/20 rule… 20% online learning and 80% virtual in-person. This is to make sure that you’re getting as much 1:1 support, learning by doing, and practice time as possible and NOT just staring at a screen listening to another ‘expert’.
As a visual kinesthetic learner, personally I need to see things and learn by actually doing them. So I understand the challenges of online learning… That’s why this program has been designed for all learning styles, whether you’re visual, auditory, kinesthetic or a combination.
The other challenge with online learning is accountability and continuity. It’s just hard to hold yourself accountable with a mountain of other tasks and responsibilities piling up – life always seems to get in the way. That’s why we provide the community, peer and personal coaching and mentoring support – to help you stay on track.
This program is for people who lead busy lives and especially for those of you who have been asking me for years for the full coach training experience, but want it according to your own schedule and lifestyle.
Our coaches launch successful practices right after our training and are able to integrate the tools and skills into their practice right away. You will not need another coach training program after this one – although we know that you’re probably here because you’re a lifelong learner, like me!
This program will give you the training that you need to launch a successful practice upon completion AND to start using the tools and skills in your work and life straight away.
We believe where the world is at right now that these specific NLP somatic coaching skills are needed more than ever.
The truth is unless someone like you cares an awful lot and is brave enough to bring your unique superpowers forward to BE the change you want to see in the world and empower everyone you come into contact with to do the same, nothings going to change.
There has never been a more important time to step up into the important role coaches can play at this time to reconnect clients with their humanness and innate wisdom and empower them to become the inner directed changemakers we need right now.
