Working with Ali has been invaluable.  She came at a time when I needed support.  She has been life changing at a time I couldn't see my way through my difficulties.

' I found the content really interesting. As an optimist I now understand why others aren't.  I have used some of the tools learned with people I support.'

FS Singer & business owner

'I was struggling with anxiety and worrying about everything. I now know how to deal with my anxiety...to help me get on with my life.  I use the tools I have learned with Ali and I am  braver. I now  go out there and do the things I want to.  I came off my medications because right now I'm doing really well and don't need them.'

Having been referred to several different CBT sessions over the course of 8 years I found that nothing was really sticking. I'd always get myself back to square one and forget what I had learned.

I decided to contact Alison as I knew something had to change.  I didn't want to be on anxiety medication for the rest of my life.

I met Ali weekly in a hotel bar near where I lived. It was a place I felt calm, relaxed and open to talk.  I was shocked at how much ground we covered. I realised we  were working on feelings and not events and that was why we could cover so much ground.

After being in therapy for 8 years in my past I had not discussed issues in my past that were shaping how I felt about myself.  I had always thought it would be too painful. I learned to remove the negativity, to forgive myself and others. I learned techniques I can use all the time to help me.

The best part was that Ali was on the end of the phone as and when I needed. I didn't have to wait for our appointment.  Also using Whatsapp I could send a voice note at work and I didn't have to wait days to get advice. I dealt with the problems as they arose.

In 12 weeks I felt empowered enough and strong enough to go it alone.  I have had a refresh session when I needed it.

I only wish I had this years ago! It was the best money I ever spent on myself and my family.

  When I started working with Ali, I was struggling with OCD, anxiety and overthinking and they were having a huge impact on my life.  I no longer have OCD and I now recognise that not all change is bad or scary. Today, everything is loads better. Even when the sessions felt tough exploring emotions, I always managed to smile by the end. I would recommend working with Ali, she doesn’t judge you and is very good at listening. She is understanding and in tough sessions she chats in a thoughtful and friendly manner – you never feel intimidated. She is very supportive, knowledgeable and encouraging – I’m glad I got to work with her.

It was really useful learning how the mind works and why I react as I do.  I liked that Ali shared her own experiences.  It is useful to know that adults have to work at things too.  I learned some new ways of thinking about life and some easy breathing techniques that can help me when I'm stressed.
