How Life Coaching Helps
My particular specialism is helping people find more happiness and purpose by aligning their unique talents, interests and values to their personal and professional life.
As an experienced and skilled life coach, I offer professional, confidential, one-to-one sessions to help you:
Create the life and career you really want and find renewed purpose
Reconnect with the real ‘you’—your values, interests, unique talents and strengths
Manage stress and anxiety
Find a work/life balance
Let go of the past and the fears, beliefs or behaviours that hold you back
Feel happier and more fulfilled
“I feel HAPPY again!! I can’t recommend Alison highly enough!” Jan
Life and work can be challenging and we all get ‘stuck’ occasionally, finding ourselves going round and round in circles, unsure how to move forward.
I can help you get ‘unstuck’, providing an objective, supportive space, with a skilled facilitator who can help you find solutions and move forward with courage and confidence.
To ensure you get the best results, I use coaching skills, exercises and resources developed over years of study and practice that help you to:
Clarify what you want and set goals
See things clearly from different perspectives
Find solutions and take action
Overcome obstacles, fears and limiting beliefs
Stay motivated and on track
Feel happier and more confident
Mind DetoxTMis a truly amazing, transformational technique that helps you to ‘change your mind’ and ‘change your relationship with your mind’ in order to feel peaceful and content now.
Emotional Freedom Technique, or EFT, is a gentle but effective technique that helps to manage and let go of difficult emotions like fear and anxiety by releasing energy blockages and returning the body, mind and emotions to a state of balance and harmony.
Working with Me
I have a warm, approachable but professional style and you can expect sessions to feel enjoyable and supportive. But I will also challenge your thinking, encourage you to move out of your comfort zone and keep you on track to achieve your goals.
After a free, confidential, initial consultation to discuss your situation, areas of concern and desired outcomes and timescales, I can advise how we might best approach things and the number of sessions likely needed to achieve the results you want.
Sometimes, a couple of sessions is all that’s required, but usually a block of six sessions over a two or three month period works well for most issues. Top up sessions are available if needed.
Of course, this does depend on the scale and number of changes you wish to make and coaching is not an exact science, but this gives you an idea of what to expect.
Please note that, as coaching is focused on making positive change, it’s important that you are mentally and physically well enough to move forward. If you are suffering with severe mental health issues, have suffered a recent bereavement or break-up and are feeling very fragile or emotional then a counsellor or therapist may be better placed to support you at this time.
