"Walking in Nature holistically heals my mind-body-spirit, it feeds my soul, intuiting where I need or want to, where I choose to go next"

About Life Coaching


Coaching for Change creatively in Nature 


Alison loves coaching whilst walking with clients, whether one to one, with groups or planned events with organisations, including ‘Away Days for Teams.’ It is that sense of space, slowing down, connecting creatively with the healing power of woodlands where a work team can benefit from nature’s energy, positively building relationships towards identified goals or future projects.


Alison offers ‘Campfire CAN DO CONVERSATIONS for Women’, an original, personal conversation by the fire, in nature, bringing shared joy, increased vitality, encouraging constructive relationships and CAN DO CONVERSATIONS within a group, gazing into space, feeling in the present moment.


Alison has worked with groups devising new directions, ways of moving forward together through the group’s rapport, listening and sharing of each other’s thoughts and feelings.  She has researched and published seminal works on devising, and work on nature connections for improved health and wellbeing, having been part of National Nature Connections Festivals.  With over 35 years’ experience as a facilitator, she will invite you to actively participate in CAN DO CONVERSATIONS for women.


Alison's Testimonials

'As a Senior Staff Nurse in a busy critical care unit in London, I signed up to coaching sessions for NHS staff, that’s how I met Alison, whose coaching with NLP techniques was an amazing experience for me and has enhanced my confidence and understanding of my own qualities and potentials. Her coaching led me to develop and adopt a more positive mind-set and mentality that enhanced my personal and professional relationships, feeling that I was able to cope better with difficult situations, interpret behaviours differently and avoid conflict.  Life coaching has definitely helped me explore myself deeper.’
