A love of art and science

World-class coaching gets to the heart of who you really are.

Robert Hutchinson, BSC (Hons), PCC, FRSA

Certified Professional Coach


My first career was in broadcast television working in the fast-paced and pressurised environment of transmission, programme promotion strategy and channel launches. At the BBC I worked as a transmission Network Director before moving to Channel 4 TV to launch the FilmFour film channel. I then moved on to head up Media Planning at The Discovery Channel. Throughout my TV career I adopted a coaching style of leadership which resulted in a track record of recruiting, building and training effective and happy teams. 


In 2013 I needed new challenges and I wanted to run my own business so I decided to change career. After rigorous post-graduate training in Business and Personal Coaching, (University of Chester Business School), Enneagram psychometric profiling (Integrative Enneagram), and gaining a gold standard Professional Coaching Certification (PCC) from the International Coaching Federation, I founded my own coaching and consulting practice, The Authentic Life Company based in London.


Parallel to my television and coaching careers, I have spent the last 20 years researching and studying self-awareness, ancient wisdom traditions, Eastern philosophy, and the modern science behind effective personal development and good living. As a result I've done the leg-work so clients benefit from my two decades of research and training.

I now support leaders and senior professionals on a powerful journey of self-discovery by combining coaching and consulting with a unique blend of modern science and timeless human wisdom. I bring insight, empathy and my own broad experience to successfully empower clients to create the sustainable change they are looking for.

Through my Authentic Life methodology, I specialise in helping clients develop self-awareness, self-confidence, personal effectiveness and motivation. I am passionate about the impact of self-inquiry supported by powerful coaching conversations to enable transformational personal and professional growth.


  • BSc (Hons) in Physics and Music

  • Post-graduate coaching qualification

  • Professional Certified Coach accreditation


I have personally validated all of the tools and techniques I use, and in my own life I commit to ongoing personal and professional development. 


I am a Fellow of The Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, a British organisation committed to 21st century enlightenment.

As a creative ideas explorer I regularly attend events around the world with thought leaders and independent thinkers.



I'm on a mission to help people fall in love with life again, by making positive changes in their life, career or business. 

My philosophy is grounded in the wisdom of the ages, so I draw inspiration from East and West, especially the traditional human knowledge that is now being validated by modern science.

I believe that understanding our collective knowledge of being human, and exploring our unique experience as an individual, is the key to living an Authentic Life.

"Knowing yourself
is the beginning of all wisdom."

~ Aristotle
