I reached out to Alison when I felt that my life needed to be reshaped again. My coaching sessions with Alison were truly impactful and provided me with more confidence and energy to tackle some of my work and personal challenges. Alison brings a clarity of thinking as well as authenticity and warmth to her coaching sessions. Her coaching is both supportive and challenging - the perfect balance! I am looking forward to seeing where we will go next and how I can continue to implement some fundamental changes in my life.
As someone who was in a position where I wasn’t sure what the next step in my career could or should be, I found that completing the Gallup Strengths Test and sitting down to dissect my results really helped me to better understand myself and what kind of paths were open to me. During my time with Alison - someone who I trusted implicitly, was comfortable around, and felt understood me extremely well - I came to the realisation that not only is it okay to take things one step at a time, but also that it's important that you move at your own pace, without setting arbitrary goals that are perhaps dictated by what others around you are doing. Talking my situation and priorities through with her also helped me to better understand exactly what it was I was looking for in a job, and what kind of steps I could take not only when looking for something new, but also to make the most of the role I am currently in. The Gallup Strengths Test really encouraged me to look inside myself and better understand my processes and motivations, and coming out of this process I feel I know myself a lot better than I did before. I also feel a lot more confident in my choices and my ability to take whatever career change I might want to make at my own pace. Lastly, it’s allowed me to consider more ways in which I can grow in my current position. I would certainly encourage anyone grappling with a decision or potentially making a change in their life, or simply someone looking to better understand themselves and hoping to find ways to capitalise on their strengths in their personal and professional lives to get in touch with Alison!
I have found the experience of being coached by Alison extremely positive and valuable. During the sessions I could feel she was there, listening to me and I love how empathetic she is. As a result of working with her I have got a better understanding of why I want to change my life and what really matters to me during this process. This gave me the confidence to start exploring different possibilities and understand what I needed to do in order to apply the changes. I now feel empowered and "lighter" since I have got the clarity I was looking for. Alison is insightful, supportive, non-judgemental, and smiling (when it is needed). She’s great at understanding the whole person and I would highly recommend her for anyone looking to make changes in their life for greater overall satisfaction. Thank you!
Alison is very professional and knows how to create a safe space thanks to her empathetic and friendly personality. I loved our sessions and it was truly a pleasure to meet Alison every week. Most importantly, I felt truly listened to. I wanted to work on some of my underlying beliefs that were limiting me in the implementation of my projects. Despite this very broad topic, Alison was able to follow the flow of my thoughts and ask the most relevant questions to help me see things more clearly. Thanks to her I could learn more about myself and change perspective about who I really am. I definitely felt more empowered and bold after our sessions! I would recommend Alison as a coach to anyone. Especially those who need or like being challenged. Alison knows how to ask direct questions while keeping her client in a caring and kind environment. This approach is extremely powerful.
