More Energy, Less Stress
People think they need better time management, but they actually need better energy management. In a world where people feel like they are always playing catch up with a never ending to do list it can be helpful to understand energy management. Understanding energy helps us to become more present, focused, efficient, less stressed, sleep better and have better quality relationships.
In this talk I encourage you to look at energy as a currency, asking questions like; how do you spend each day? Do you save your energy for when you need it? And What habits deplete your energy and what habits are life giving?
I will take you through practices so you can experience a shift in your own energy in real time. We will also be looking at the energy of language and how you speak about yourself, and others can be energy depleting or energy giving.
Energy is also contagious and through the lens of understanding coherence we can really begin to understand the energy of stress and anxiety and transform to one of presence, patience and calm.
Key takeaways include:
- The currency of energy
- Starting your day strong–determines how you spend your energy
- My Stop, Catch, Change Technique for interrupting behavior pattern
- Coherence techniques
- Stress reduction
- The power of the breath
- Why movement matters
- The importance of letting go
The Full 360: The Mindful Path to Better Living
As a mindfulness teacher, Alison believes that awareness in all areas of our lives creates space for change. Until we fully accept who and where we are in this moment, we can’t take steps on the path to where we would like to be. Bringing mindfulness gently into all areas of your life helps to bring trained awareness to the forefront, empowering you to make better decisions, become less reactive, less stressed and more content.
For organizations, less stressed and more content individuals leads to a healthier company and greater growth.
Alison shares key tools and starting points for people focusing on her mantra that; ‘small changes done consistently bring about lasting differences in our lives’. This session includes mindful tips to gratitude, sleep and stress management.
The Power of Presence
Using the power of mindfulness, awareness, and intuition we can create positive change leading to the real results we truly desire for ourselves, our business and our loved ones.
In this talk/presentation Alison explores tools and techniques to help us tap into our potential and our true intuition.
She shares fun and interactive exercises and mindfulness techniques which helps us to experience true presence.
Most of all she asks important questions because it’s only by asking the right questions can people search within for the answers they seek.
By truly stepping on the path to knowing ourselves we can become more resilient, focused, and self-assured and confident. This leads us to become better partners, friends, coworkers and even bosses. Key takeaways include:
- Exercises to help activate the vagus nerve (also covering what this is) in the body and why it’s important
- Mindfulness techniques
- Coherence Practices
- Stress management
- Navigating change
- Building resilience
The Art of Inspirational Living-HEART
The Art of Inspirational Living is a H.E.A.R.T based program that covers so many of the pain points in today’s world like stress, boundaries, focus, resilience, time, values, mindfulness, and coherence.

The Full 360 Workshop: Live Better, Feel Better
The full 360 approach to health and wellbeing encourages people to look at all areas of their lives and not just one or two. Alison shares tools and techniques that help people connect, go within and create lasting change through intuition and everyday small behavioural changes. Alison firmly believes that real wellness can only truly be achieved when we connect the dots, taking a full 360 approach with our own health and wellbeing. This means looking at body, mind, spirit, our environment and the quality of our relationships.
This workshop will bring guests through different, fun techniques including mindfulness, gratitude, self-care tips and what effect our food has on our mood. Alison will also talk about looking at our toxic load and the products we use on a daily basis both in the home and on ourselves. Most women put on average 168 – 515 chemicals* onto their skin each day. This has a very strong and negative effect on our overall health and wellbeing and something Alison is passionate about spreading the word on.
The Full 360 event helps attendees make small changes that will give them the confidence to follow their dreams and to believe in themselves. Small changes make a big difference.
