My job was coming to an end and I felt stuck

I had built my career to the point that I really enjoyed the very senior post that I held. Not only was it my ideal work but it also enabled me easily to enjoy the home and family aspects of my life with ease.

When the consequences of the changes to the economy put the writing on the wall I knew that even if I had a bit of time to deal with the changes I could not count on the future rolling out as I had previously thought. The job I loved would come to an end.

In spite of knowing the truth I seemed to have hit a barrier that I couldn’t get over. I could not get myself effectively into action to start making the necessary changes.

At this pinch point in my career I met Alison. She helped me unlock the situation by working closely with me to identify the ‘barrier’ and reorient myself to the next necessary steps in my career. Her ‘unlocking’ skills have changed my life because she facilitated me to release my potential and embark on the task of creating my career on the other side of the barrier. Thanks to that newly found level of self-awareness and confidence I have actually fulfilled everything on my wish list for my new job. Once again I love my job and how it enables me to enjoy my family life as well. Thank you Alison

Perfect Storm of Professional and Personal Pressures

I was introduced to Alison at a time when a lot of things in my life, both professionally and personally, were becoming very challenging.  My sleep was affected and my ability to focus on anything I had to deal with was compromised.  It was Alison’s listening, advice, guidance and ability to explain the processes of the mind that helped me achieve enough calmness to start having a useful impact on what I had to manage.

Anybody who has experienced real stress they will know that it can start to engulf everything that you do.  With Alison’s help I managed to open up and start to address the source of my stress and map out the best way forward. Together we examined the issues that had to be handled and I could see that I was burdening myself with the unfulfillable expectation of having to deliver instant results to some difficult issues that realistically could take up to a year to resolve.  We broke the deliverables into manageable chunks so that I could have the experience of achievement and making progress every week instead of going to bed nightly with the totality of the next years work not yet achieved.
I am happy to report that all of the issues that troubled me are firmly parked in my past but should something trouble me again I know who I would call first!

Alison has been my colleague for several years

In eight years of working with Alison as a fellow director of a Property Management company, I have witnessed her talents in being able to isolate root causes to issues, put in place practical solutions and to establish an environment to motivate those involved in successful delivery of the solutions.  Alison offers impressive experience and exceptional value to whomever she works with. Her passion to strive constantly for success is, I believe, her greatest asset.
