Personal growth, coaching and embodiment

get more out of life

More meaning, more fun, more creativity. Are you looking for personal growth, to reduce stress and to live life in colour again?

If it’s time to make a change, discover fresh insights, open up your choices and keep your success sustainable, you’ve come to the right place.

the challenges you might be facing

stressed or anxious? close to burnout?

Is life is really busy, work is exhausting and you need to recalibrate your work-life balance, deal with stress or worries, overcome overwhelm, and improve your ability to 'bounce back' when times are tough?

Feeling stuck? Getting in your own way?

Does it feel like a lack of confidence, people pleasing, poor boundaries, constant self-sabotage, finding it hard to make time for self-care or the inability to ask for what you need are the hallmarks of your life?

In midlife. Ready to step into a new way of being?

Are you the 'rock' for everyone else, with no-one to support you? Do friends and family see you as successful, but inside it feels like life lacks meaning? Has the real you got lost along the way and you’re ready to find the way back to yourself?

"I was very glad I contacted Allison as she was very understanding and kind, non-judgemental and responsive."

ways in which we may choose to work together

Coaching for personal growth

coaching

True transformation involves every part of you – mind, body, spirit and emotions – and we will work with all of these parts on your individual personal growth journey. Working with all of you is the only way to truly focus on your wellbeing, helping you reduce stress and the risk of burnout, discovering your real purpose and what brings you meaning in life, and reconnecting more deeply to your inner self, so that you can define and create the life that will make you happy.

You are unique and your coaching journey will be uniquely designed for you, based on your strengths, life experiences, challenges and blind spots, and focused on the changes you want to make and the challenges you want to overcome. It will empower you to be more fully and consistently present with yourself and others, to deeply understand your own embodiment and what that means for how you live your life, to change it if you want, and to rediscover your own inner wisdom and to bring what you are longing to make happen in your life into being.

Along the way, there may be challenging moments, difficult emotions as well as laughter and joy. We will journey together, as partners, working with compassion, kindness and accountability.

Breathwork for stress management

breathwork

Ever find yourself holding your breath? Part of the ‘fight or flight’ response, breath holding is a way of ‘not feeling’ in the moment. It's actually a great short-term coping mechanism for stress or burnout but those feelings don't go away. They get locked inside your body which can make you feel heavy, sad or build up stress.

Breathwork is a potentially life-changing way of releasing and integrating stuck emotions, helping you feel lighter, calmer, more able to cope. Learn simple practical ways to respond differently, using something that you always have available, wherever you are.

Breathwork benefits include more energy, calmness, better sleep, less stress, greater clarity, and more.

Embodiment for personal growth

body-mind based insight

Real insight comes from using the intelligence of our bodies and our minds - the body-mind connection or our embodiment. So, as well as asking powerful questions of the mind, we will also be asking questions of the body.

Our embodiment is the way we hold ourselves, move and breathe. It reflects the life we've led, what we do in the present moment, and influences what we are capable of in the future.

Our embodiment profoundly influences how we perceive the world, and through that perception, how we act and relate to others, which in turn influences the outcomes we get.

Gaining increased awareness of your habitual embodiment can be a major driver in your personal growth, giving you renewed choice over when and how you want to shift it.

A deeper sense of your habitual embodiment, including how it shifts in different circumstances and in relationship to others, increases your flexibility and adaptability, giving you the power to make choices that reduce stress and burnout, and bringing you a deeper sense of connection to yourself.

Reconnected with what was truly important

"Through the breathwork I tapped into authentic truth of my being in the feelings and sensations of my body. Away from the thoughts, I was clear on what was truly important to me in this moment. It felt empowering to express myself like this without fear of being judged."

School for Wellbeing - Transformation through purpose, performance, resilience

Hello, I'm Allison

I'm a coach, business psychologist, breathworker and wellbeing facilitator. I co-host The Embodiment Podcast and regularly speak in front of groups seeking fresh ideas on how to shift up their lives, reduce stress and find more fulfilment.

I spent over 20 years in the corporate world, so I get how life can be hectic and that even if our work is interesting and exciting, it can also be draining. I’ve also been a caregiver, for my father going through dementia, so I understand the pressures that can bring. I’ve felt that desire to make the most of my life, to grow in terms of my career, my personal life as well as emotionally and spiritually, and to find a way to do it where I can look after myself too.

I started my personal growth journey with a lot of travel which really opened my eyes to meditation and alternative therapies. I continued exploring when I returned home, getting a Master’s degree in business psychology and publishing my research on work-life balance. I’ve studied breathwork, grief, embodiment, sound healing, yoga nidra, reiki, meditation and mindfulness. This has been my quest for a deeper understanding of how to find joy and to uncover what feels purposeful and meaningful to me.

Now I get to help others. Those who want to use the body-mind connection to get more deeply in touch with themselves, so they can be their calmest, happiest, most creative, fulfilled and confident selves (without having to spend months training in different therapies or meditating for hours a day).

I’d love to share with you what I’ve learned and to support you to create your own best life.
