About Life Coach Dr. Albert Viljoen

I am an ICF-accredited Life Coach in Marylebone 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.

Although I am based in Marylebone, I service my clients from a variety of locations and also offer Skype and telephone-based coaching services.

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've had a coaching call with Albert regarding my personal blocks as an independent designer and entrepreneur. Albert's coaching was insightful and authentic. His approach resonates with my own personality. Definitely recommended if you are ready for the next step but need a new perspective on your own more

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

Talking with Albert helped me unravel my thoughts and motivations. What was originally a concern with a work issue revealed a lot about me in general. Recognising personality traits has informed many areas of my life. Illuminating!

Observant, analytical expertise that produces sustained and observable results. What's not to like? Shaun has worked with me for a few years on correcting joint and muscles problems (from osteoarthritis) and on reducing associated pain. The effect has been sustained and life-changing for me. I am now in dramatically better shape than I thought possible, and it has been fun too! I recommend Shaun's knowledge, skill and manner without more

Shaun has helped me change my approach to my physical heath and wellbeing! I first spoke to him about a recurring knee injury but rather than just treating a specific injury as an isolated issue, his sessions have addressed my body (and even my mind sometimes) in a much more holistic way. I've seen substantial improvements in surprising areas including quicker reactions in racket sports, much better balance in yoga, hugely improved upper body strength (I can know do a yoga wheel and hold it for 5 breaths with ease). Thanks to Shaun's style of one-to-one session and homework I now have a set of tools to combat recurring lower back issues and have got back to running despite the injury. And unlike other practitioners I've seen in the past, between sessions I really feel I can check in and speak to Shaun whenever I have a question about an exercise or an more

After quitting smoking, I gained over 10kgs. Working with Shaun, he provided me a nutrition plan to restart my metabolism and training oriented to Pilates style stretching and muscle building. Training sessions were always different and never monotonous. I’ve had various personal trainers in the past and Shaun is by the best I’ve worked with. Highly more

Shaun gave me massage therapy and helped me understand how I moved and how to correct imbalances in how I was walking that were aggravating my back. He also used dry needles to help the muscles and stretching exercises. I felt so much better afterwards and he helped me to stay mindful of what I was doing wrong and how to fix it, which was very effective. He is very personable and great to work with, relaxing but focused, I would definitely more

Shaun has been a crucial part of my half-marathon preparation for over five years. He regularly provides deep tissue massage to maximise my training, as well as muscle activation massage prior to races. I have benefited from his expertise in body mechanics and motion to solve imbalances in my technique as well as to overcome minor injuries. Shaun has a considered and personal approach, and after every session he provides me with specific and helpful advice on how to more

I do a fair amount of exercise and play tennis competitively still. My back and hamstrings are really tight/inflexible and I have a lack of mobility in my shoulders. I consulted Shaun to see if some massage and stretching work would help. I was most impressed by his professional and physiological approach to my issues. He certainly loosened up my body and muscles with a consequent improvement in my performance on and off the court. Shaun is always reading up on the latest techniques and developments in fitness and health and I have absolute faith in his skills and abilities and recommend him more

I have had several sessions with Albert now and could see the progress just after my first session with him. Albert’s incredible energy, positivity, empathy and guidance helped me to see problems from a different angle and deal with aspects in my communication that kept me in repeating patterns for years. His way of coaching provided encouragement without flattery, and guidance to empower myself to deal with very imminent challenges in my work life. Albert is exactly the coach that asks the right kind of questions to truly explore your inner self and fundamentally more
