Dr Sandrine Alegre SFHEA Senior Lecturer

Member of the University of Bath internal coaching network.


Since 2016, Sandrine has been coaching staff from academic and professional services at the University on a wide range of topics. Sandrine is passionate about coaching, as she strongly believes that it can make a positive difference in our professional life. Sandrine also supports the Workforce Development team as an Accredited Strengthscope Practitioner.


Specific areas of interest in relation to coaching:

  • managing changes
  • building relationships (managing teams, difficult relationships)
  • motivation and confidence
  • returning to work after a long absence
  • changing career path
  • developing leadership skills
  • intercultural coaching
  • wellbeing and work/life balance


Sandrine has been working in Higher Education in the UK and abroad for over 20 years. Her main focus is on teaching and learning, training, developing and mentoring staff. Over time her role has changed and she transferred from a role with focus on research/teaching path to her current role with focus on a management/teaching path. This has given her the opportunity to gain new skills and knowledge in management and coaching/mentoring.

Her experience as a coach mainly focuses on helping people to unlock their potential, feel energised in their workplace, develop leadership skills and deal with difficult situations or changes. In other words, enhancing wellbeing and performance in the work domain. Common topics facilitated during the sessions are self-confidence, resilience, motivation, finding your voice, values and purpose and being strategic. Sandrine has worked with staff returning to work after a long absence to help them with the transition period.

Sandrine is a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC) UK and EMCC Global.
