We asked Alison to help us with our IT staff meeting by leading a session on well-being . Alison did a lot of work in advance of the day, finding out about what our people do and our specific needs so that she could tailor the session so that we could get the most out of it. In the session itself Alison was very enthusiastic and is clearly expert in her field , the chatter as we left for the break was incredibly positive with people saying they would be trying some of the techniques from the session.
Alison was very professional and easy to deal with throughout our work together and continues to keep us updated with information on well-being.

Alison’s wellbeing course is well thought-out and delivered. Personable and welcoming, Alison made me feel safe to explore some of the difficult questions we have to ask ourselves sometimes to ensure we are taking care of our body and minds. I would absolutely refer any family, friend or colleague to this workshop which, I felt was suitable for all levels
Suki Lim, HR Manager
We invited Alison as a speaker to an intensive entrepreneurship training programme aimed at young women who have had difficult experiences in their lives. Alison delivered a very interesting session on building resilience and was engaging throughout. She was very generous with her time and provided us with great support when we needed it most.
We enjoyed the session very much and would like to see her come back in the future. A big thank you from the HERA team!
“Alison Charles is an excellent coach. The session produced results that surpassed my expectations. The difference was huge. I felt lighter and a calm that felt like a profound release had occurred. What impressed me so much about Alison as a coach, was her instinct and ability to get to the root of the problem and I am very grateful to her. A wonderful lady with an enquiring nature and gentle patience who is committed to helping people. Highly recommended!”
Your coaching and advice were excellent in helping me provide the framework, and environment to get our employee back on track – both in thier work life, and home life.
- They were able to reduce thier reliance on prescribed medication
- They shared their anxieties, and the possible solutions with family and friends
- And they ended the year as our top performer
Many thanks on both our behalf’s – and I look forward to working with you again in the future.

“Alison is a very confident public speaker. Business Connected recently organised a health event which Alison spoke at. She delivered her talk perfectly and held the audience’s attention the whole time. Thanks Alison.”
Richard Pond – Director of Business Connected Ltd
Really enjoyed the session on wellbeing. Alison was highly experienced and knowledgeable, providing insight on really current topics such as mental health. It gave me some useful tips to take away and use in my daily life, to improve my stress levels as well as advice in approaching management if required.

“We worked with Alison at the Annual Asset Integrity Management Summit where she gave a very in-depth overview of change management and the successful implementation of change within the workforce. In an industry where soft skills can often be overlooked, this workshop offered an excellent opportunity for asset maintenance professionals to understand how to robustly integrate new systems and processes by effectively managing employee integration and buy-in. With a very hands-on approach to the workshop along with excellent content, we are sure to work with Alison again on future projects.”
Carly Green, Senior Conference Director, Oil and Gas IQ
“I was just promoted to a new job and didn´t feel confident enough that I would succeed. This is when I met Alison on a mentoring circle she held. The first thing that impressed me about her was the utmost professionalism and personal attention to my problems. She genuinely wants to see people succeed and become a happier person. She is good listener and doesn’t attempt to wedge her clients into a pre-determined mold, but instead help people recognize their unique capabilities and areas where they need coaching. She is very good at finding the most effective technique that works for the individual within the shortest period of time.
Now I feel more confident that I can enjoy my job and I´m not concerned about the new challenges yet to come. I feel like a different person! Thank you!” Judit, London
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say a huge thank you for your support and assistance with regards to my fear of flying. I must confess I was somewhat sceptical at first as I have tried numerous times to get help with my fear to no avail. However after our meeting I can now proudly say that I have managed for the first time to fly to China to see my son and beautiful grandson, something I have been totally unable to even contemplate due to my terror of flying. I don’t know what your magic is but somehow your treatment has enabled me to conquer my fear and enabled me to fly with confidence. Thank you so much for all you have done for me.

“I worked with Alison due to suffering from sleep problems and experiencing tiredness through the day due to this. After a few 1-2-1 sessions and working on various techniques before bed, my sleep pattern has improved by at least 2 hours per night and my energy levels are much higher thus helping my working day. Thank you Alison.”
Mark Warne, Sales Manager at Third Space
“We invited Alison to be the guest speaker at one of our monthly talks on the subject of getting stakeholder engagement when running a project. Alison did a wonderful job of engaging the attendees with their broad spectrum of backgrounds and experience. Her style was inclusive and welcoming, with Powerpoint disregarded in favour of a simple flipchart and clear messaging backed by a very obvious working knowledge of the subject.
Alison’s introduction of her topic included activities for the attendees to really drive home the points she made. Whilst that sort of approach is novel to our meetings and if done poorly, can be quite awkward, Alison made it fun and a very valid illustration of the practical application of the techniques in a way that invited the audience to really consider how they interact with stakeholders.
The networking event afterward was lively and Alison was generous with her time for those that wanted to know more. In short, we thoroughly enjoyed Alison coming to speak to us and have had nothing but positive feedback from the event. Thank you Alison.”

“I had been diagnosed with M.E and Fibromyalgia in 2004. The opportunity to try a session with Alison was a welcome break; I found the consultation relaxing and pleasant.
Following the treatment, I slept soundly without waking several times during the night. 3 weeks on I have become aware of my energy levels increased. This been a remarkable breakthrough to have more energy, no-longer requiring afternoon naps to desperately try and recharge my batteries and able to go through into the evening usually I would be needing to sleep early evening feeling exhausted, but now achieving later evenings.”

“Having developed a fear of flying and anxiety over feeling ill during flights over the past few years, I considered many different types of treatment. Having contacted Alison, I was able to discuss my problems and arrange an appointment without any delay. Alison is an extremely professional coach, who came to my home and made me feel very comfortable and calm during my sessions. Even at times when I felt anxious or emotional, Alison was able to teach me how to calm myself, almost immediately. Having had just 2 sessions, I am feeling a lot better about flying and even in my day to day life. Alison also provides aftercare via phone or email which is invaluable if anything crops up, or you are unsure about anything. I would definitely recommend Alison to anyone. Don’t suffer in silence, it’s pain-free and drug-free and could change your life. Thank you once again for all your help.” Tracy
“Initially I was a bit skeptical if and how the treatment would work. I really had a vertigo challenge for many years. Every time when I was on a mountain or even on a balcony I got shivers all over my body. This resulted in being afraid of moving. After my treatment I tried to go on a balcony I didn’t go on before… and it worked. No fear and I simply crossed it and even looked down…. Amazing. I am not afraid anymore. Thank you and amazing what this treatment did for me. Really appreciated.”
