About Alison

img_0652-2Before and after Transformational Relationship Coaching

I am the adopted child of an adopted child and for most of my life lived with the pain of having no idea about who I was, where I had come from, why I felt like I did and why I kept repeating destructive patterns in relationships, when all I wanted was to love and be loved.

I had what on the outside looked like a successful life, but on the inside I had no sense of self worth, no self esteem and was so eaten up by insecurity that I needed to exert a sense of control over those I loved in order to feel safe.

I lived with a sense of something missing my entire life and looked to people, places and things to try and fill it.

I had thought I would just have to live with the feeling of not being able to trust, and therefore sabotaging relationships before I got rejected again. Intrinsically I felt I was damaged and that the trauma of my past was a wound too big to heal and that the best I could expect was to feel ok most of the time, except when I didn’t because I was living in fear.

I thought I was unable to sustain intimate relationships because the insecurity was so all consuming that it pushed men away.

I had years of failed relationships, difficulty in communication and making un-healthy choices; night laid awake unable to stop my mind going over and over what had happened.

And then one day in my coach training I came across an understanding that changed everything.

“You are not insecure, you just think you are” was what I heard, and that came as a bolt from the blue.

As I dug deeper into these Principles I realised that, via my capacity to think, I was continuing all of the feelings myself and creating my life experience in this moment- no one else was doing it to me! I also understood that this was just an experience I was having but that there was another part of me that was, and always had been ok; that I wasn’t damaged, I was just seeing life, people and circumstances through a veil of insecurity that I was perpetuating and when that veil was lifted the same people and circumstances looked completely different and therefore my experience of them was different.

And life changed forever. Yes, I still get moments when I forget and dive into the feelings again but I am no longer scared of feeling them because I know they will pass and won’t consume me and eat me up, and so all of the energy I used to use to avoid feeling is released to do other things. I can identify when I am acting out of my insecurities and taking my thinking seriously and I also have a very deep knowing that whatever happens I will be ok so I spend a lot more time hanging out in a very different way of thinking and seeing the world. 

The programme that I have developed, brings all of my training and life experience together so you too can transform your life and find love, happiness and peace of mind.
