Emma: from waiting for life to begin to believing good things will happen!

Emma approached me at the end of 2020 following a conversation with a mutual friend and previous client.  I loved our sessions! Emma came to each session armed with questions, she kept me on my toes, we navigated the labyrinth of life, knocking down walls, leaping over hedges and had a lot of laughs along the way!  You can read Emma's testimonial and post programme message to me here....

 

Before I approached Ali, I felt ok with my life but I knew there were some blocks in the way to taking my life a step up and moving it forward in the way I wanted.  I was aware, through therapy I'd had previously, that these blocks were due to issues of low self-esteem and lack of self-love.   I also wanted to live a life where I felt happiness on a day to day basis.  This is something I had never experienced in my life, so I didn't know if it was even possible.  I felt my deep core was one of sadness following a very bleak, cold childhood.  I wanted to...

Annabel: From a shy, stuck Coach to confident Energy Coach!

Annabel and I first crossed paths at a conference and I was so excited when she reached out to me to ask for support and guidance when it came to her own coaching business;  she was stuck,  unsure of which direction she wanted to go in and lacking in confidence to be able to share her skills, knowledge and business publicly.  Since working with me she is a published author and I love seeing her confidence on social media as she is now embracing her new found love for her message and how she will help people with their energy as an Energy Coach!

 

You can read Annabel's story in her words here

 

Before I contacted Ali to work, I was feeling a bit stuck and directionless trying to start my business. I was lacking in confidence in myself to be able to do it. I procrastinated a lot- mainly about the techie stuff and the social media as a lot of it was out of my comfort zone. I didn't think what I had to offer was worth very much- bad money mindset.

I...

Kate: A Lockdown Love Story

You know me and a good love story - I love one, especially one with a happy ending.  And this is a lovely one!  Kate first rang me totally incredulous that only she could be dumped in Lockdown....  but boy did she use time wisely to reassess all areas of her life and what a gorgeous story it turned out to be!  Bring on the champagne! 

You can read Kate's story in her words here: 

Before I reached out to Ali, I was feeling so low. I have had therapy before and it worked but I think it's something you need on a regular basis. I had started dating after 18 months off dating as needed a reset. I started dating someone i knew from an old job (Scott) and there were a lot of issues that he had to deal with and then just as lock down began he ended it. I was devastated as he had made me feel as if we were going somewhere.

I also was starting the third year of working for the family business and I felt I had no focus or direction in life. I...

Becci: from deflated & lost to confident & armed!

 Becci and I have been friends for a couple of decades;  a friendship that can be put down and picked up without feeling that time has passed in between.  I was so happy to hear from her after a quiet period and even more delighted to be able to support and help her achieve her happiness and life goals.  Her is her story, in her words:

 

Before I started my programme with Ali, I felt deflated, confused, lost and uninspired and that is why I approached her.  Having finished working with Ali I feel hopeful! More purposeful - in a mindful way and more sure of myself & who I am.

 

My top three goals upon starting the programme were self-confidence, stem the worrying, take the first step forward. Ali was able to help me work towards these goals by building up my confidence and self belief and worth - teaching me techniques to cope with these challenging times.

 

The biggest tangible change I have noticed since beginning the program...

Well done lovely ladies xxx

The Heal Yourself Happy Academy: Client Stories

On completing the HYH Academy, this is what graduates had to say:

Christine:  I have seen other people comment on how life-changing the HYH academy course has been for them. I wish I could say I have lost 3 stone, run a marathon, written a novel, earned a million or changed my whole world around. I haven't. And I know this is not the Academy. I know it is my situation, dealing with a crazy 18 months of bereavement and covid. I heard recently about Carl Jung & how he had a period of his life when he had a complete breakdown but came out of it, more creative & aware. So through his breakdown came breakthrough. This is how I feel about the Academy. That at a time when I just wanted to have a complete breakdown, it helped me breakthrough & find the tools and focus to carry on and rebuild. So although I have a long way to go to make the changes I want to, I am going at the only pace I can at the moment, yet I feel I am armed with the tools to do so - step by step,...

Adam: From Rock Bottom to King of the World

This is an incredible story of bravery by a young student suffering with depression, anxiety, anorexia and a low self esteem. He found the courage to ask for and accept help and support and in doing so turned his life around.   If you are or if you know someone suffering in silence, please guide them to someone they feel safe opening up to... and help them on the path to recovery.  Here's Adam's story in his words:

 

My top three goals upon starting the 6-month program were to try and leave the house once a day, to go to bed before midnight at least once a week and to attempt to eat three meals a day.

To help me work toward these goals Ali and I spent the majority of sessions doing one simple thing – talking!!  It is something that should never be underestimated.  It is incredible the power it holds in recovery and how just opening up and accepting your thoughts and feelings can have a great impact on your wellbeing.  One of my main...

Alexa: Well & truly and inspirationally transformed!

Alexa's transformation is truly inspirational.  She was in a really sad and lonely place when we first spoke. Through being totally committed to learning new things, being open and willing to try anything, facing her deepest fears and taking the leap in all areas of her life - romantically and professionally, she has created a life full of light and love!  I am so happy for her! 

Alexa took my 6 month transformational programme and now working with me on business mentoring. Here is her story, in her words:

 

Before I started I was filled with anxiety, sadness, helpless and completely lost. I had never worked with a coach before so was unsure what to expect. I had seen therapists about the current life situation I was facing however none met my needs. I needed someone who would help me by listening, helping me come up with my own answers but provide me with tools and techniques to do that. Ali provided all of this and more. Ali's story resonated with me when I...

The Emotional Guest House

As our life in Lockdown begins to shift and change again, it is likely that new emotions, new feelings of fear and worry, as well as elation and excitement start to flood our consciousness.  For some, this could be an overwhelming time.

 

It was the very fact that some rules around Lockdown have lifted that enabled me to enjoy a beautiful evening at the Acorn Retreat (https://www.acornwellness.co.uk/) for a Gong bath with one of life's most beautiful souls Jules Cooper from Dragon Fly Yoga ( http://dragonflyyoga.co.uk/) and she reminded me of one of the poems that helped me in my times of darkness, depression and insomnia - The Guest House by Rumi. 

 

  

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each...
