About Life Coach Dr. Albert Viljoen

I am an ICF-accredited Life Coach in London with a passion for helping individuals and organisations meet their goals to live life to the full. I work with a variety of clients, covering the following areas: health, relationship, emotions and work.

I provide in-person sessions from my London clinics in Marylebone W1H 2HL and Clerkenwell EC1R 0AA but also online sessions via Skype, Zoom,, FaceTime or by telephone.

What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is one of the leading tools employed by high-functioning, successful people to lead extraordinary lives. True to our philosophy at Original Intent, it is a tool to pursue our lifelong journey to Be Fully Human.

The coaching relationship is a partnership – an equal relationship. It is a dynamic, flexible, intentional space. In this space, I allow you enough room to move and think through challenges, yet offer strong grounding and boundaries so you feel secure and accountable.

The primary goal of the relationship is to facilitate deep, true transformation & growth within you.

As an outflow of this transformation, we expect you to:

Reach your goals
Live into your desired life
Grow in fullness of your potential

Everybody needs a coach! – Eric Schmidt, Former CEO of Google

A coach tells you what you don’t want to hear, has you see what you don’t want to see, so you can be who you have always known you could be. – Tom Landry

As soon as you truly commit to making something happen, the “how” will reveal itself. – Tony Robbins

Albert aided me in a couple of things during our time together – most importantly by guiding me to settle on one thing to work on instead of the 5 or 6 things I try to do at once when left to my own devices. He helped clarify my thinking and asked questions that helped me think through my choices. That approach has been hugely helpful and motivating.

Albert is a phenomenal life coach. He’s so good at helping you discover what it is you truly want to achieve both short term and long term. He’s great at taking long rants and turning them into a simple extraction of what you’re really trying to communicate. I’ve been with Albert for 3 or 4 months and haven’t be disappointed, not once. He’s really help me have my head screwed on right in many aspects of my life.

My coaching style

Every coach has a unique style and approach, and the best way to find out if I’m the right coach for you is to schedule a short, no-obligation introductory session. I commit to the following principles in the coaching conversation:

To create a judgment-free, confidential space, where you can bring anything of yourself fully to the table.

To be a thinking partner, walking alongside you in your learning journey.

To ask questions that can result in new ways of thinking to unlock fresh perspectives and alternative approaches.

To ask you to do more than you have probably done on your own.

To help you focus better, so you can get results more quickly.

To provide a relationship where you can discover new depths of insight about yourself, your world and your choices.

To keep the sessions’ focus on the goals that you have set for yourself.

Dr. Albert is a fantastic life coach. He is intuitive and helps you see things from a different perspective. With his guidance and encouragement, I was able to make some bold decisions. He made me feel relaxed and at ease, which helped me to open up and take a good look at myself.

I had a fantastic coaching session with Albert in July 2018. Following our conversation, he left me with a collection of coping mechanisms to manage the spiral of fear and doubt that can sometimes threaten to overwhelm me. I also learned to appreciate the importance of downtime and self care on the path to achieving my more
