MIND and body coach Bryce Alford has entered a national competition which will be judged by members of the public voting online.
The competition for Britain’s Next Top Coach is divided into four sections, with Mr Alford having entered that for health and fitness. The three other sections are success and happiness, life and relationships, and business and careers.
He was required to make a two to three-minute video offering a tip in the area of his expertise. People who view it are then be invited to vote on three criteria: connection with the coach; knowledge; and insight.
Mr Alford said: ‘The video shows how, by taking control of our thoughts, we can positively influence our bodies’ responses, whether it’s an activity like walking, running, swimming, cycling or it can be adapted to any area of our lives. It’s a technique I’ve developed myself and has enabled me to achieve my own personal success.’
Mr Alford said that he has always aimed to fulfil his potential in whatever he has done, and is passionate about wanting to help others to reach their goals.
A qualified personal trainer, a master practitioner in NLP (neuro linguistic programming) and EFT (emotional freedom techniques), he runs courses aimed at helping people use their mind and body to achieve success in whatever field.
This can vary from increased confidence and public speaking to improved sporting abilities, stopping smoking and weight loss.
‘I have been successfully providing training services to individuals and groups since 2002,’ said Mr Alford, who has trained with people such as self-improvement author and broadcaster Paul McKenna.
‘People from a diverse range of backgrounds, including schools, businesses and international sportsmen, have benefitted from my approach.
‘Many others have also overcome long-term habits such as fears and phobias, stress and lack of sleep.’
Mr Alford has now set himself a new challenge in taking on the competition and hopes that Islanders will log onto the website, view the video and vote for him.
The online voting is due to commence on 2 March and those wishing to support Mr Alford can vote for him at: www.britainsnexttopcoach.tv/contestants/Bryce-Alford.
The deadline for the first round of voting is 9 April, with the semi-finals due to take place on 25 April.
