Robert Hutchinson BSc (Hons), AMAC, FRSA

Since training as coach I’ve been on a fascinating personal journey of learning and self-discovery. Although successful in my first career in broadcast TV, after 20 enjoyable years I increasingly felt that I needed new challenges. It felt like I had drifted off course and that I needed to get back on track. I wanted to create a more independent, fulfilling and authentic life so I launched the coaching and consulting practice The Authentic Life Company.

Now as a coach and wellbeing consultant I share my life and corporate experience with clients in the UK and internationally, helping them get to know themselves so they can live and work with greater wisdom and wellbeing. Using insights from modern science, ancient wisdom, positive psychology and mindfulness, I take clients on a transformational journey to their authentic selves; to understand themselves, the direction they want to take and how to get there.

A can-do ‘glass half-full’ kind of person, I find beauty in simplicity and clarity. I work well with creative and innovative clients who have big ideas, inspiration and an open mind. Many clients come from the creative industries or they’re working to promote sustainability or environmental issues.

I love the good things in life especially music and travel although I’m most likely to connect with my true self eating ‘slow food’ with close friends and family over a long afternoon lunch at an organic ristorante agriturismo in Italy. I recently switched my home electricity to 100% clean 100% renewable and my next car will be electric!

I am fully certified and accredited as a coach, I love learning and I strongly believe in ongoing professional and personal development. I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a member of Soho House.
