Would you like to take time out from the busy-ness of life and learn how to relax and find that inner peace?

You will learn about stress and how to manage it, how to relax physically, unwind emotionally and calm your mind. Mindfulness can help you improve your self-esteem, compassion and ability to focus. You can acquire effective tools to help regulate your emotions and cultivate an appreciation for what is important to you in your life.

Alison has coached me for many years. In this time Alison has coached me through a number of areas of my life, including work, study, health and fitness issues.

Alison has a very calm approach and a non-directive style which allowed me to find my own way forward with changes I wanted to make in my life.Alison’s approach was at all times positive, supportive and constructive, whilst also challenging when necessary. Her coaching style is exceedingly professional and working with Alison has been a pleasure.

I would strongly recommend Alison to anyone that wants to make a genuine change to their lives.


I would like to thank you for introducing me to Mindfulness. Although I am a novice, through your course, I have already discovered some of the benefits of such a practice. Whenever possible, daily meditation has become routine and I am amazed how often I put Mindfulness into practice in my daily life. When I find myself rushed, stressed or worried, I can now calm myself with Mindfulness thoughts and breathing patterns – even my family have made comment that my stress levels have lowered. Recently at the dentist I transferred my thoughts from my mouth to my toes (your voice in my mind) and this definitely alleviated the discomfort of the procedure.

I am very grateful for not only what I have learnt in class but also for your notes for reference and recordings for meditation.

I found the Mindfulness Meditation for beginners course highly beneficial. Alison, our teacher had a calm and reassuring manner and was helpful and supportive.  Her instructions were easy to follow.

My seven year old son loved learning to become a Zen Warrior, he now teaches me to count my breathes and the glitter jar sits proudly beside his bed and he shakes the jar whenever he has emotions he cant name or is feeling anxious. I’m grateful for the simple techniques and sound tracks that I know will support him as he grows and develops. THANK YOU!

Kylie, Birchgrove
