Alison is the person behind the British Reiki Circle and a founding partner of Healthy Human 360.
Alison is Yorkshire born and bred and lives in the East Yorkshire countryside with her husband, where she has her Healing Rooms and runs her Reiki School.
She is an Advanced Reiki Master and teacher, holistic therapist and wellbeing coach. Her unique coaching technique taps into a range of psychotherapy tools including: meditative hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). Alison is also an experienced trainer, facilitator, and course designer. Alison is currently studying under a learned shaman to become a shamanic conduit for healing and guidance, which she will then bring to her clients as a fusion of Reiki-Shamanic healing sessions.
Her long standing passion for human psychology, wellbeing, and holistic therapies started around 1988. She qualified as a CIPD trainer in 2002, as a life coach with NLP in 2004, and started adding complementary therapies to her resume, starting with Reiki in 2006, and hasn’t stopped since.
To provide someone with a safe space to relax and feel nurtured is immensely rewarding, my aim is always for people to leave happier and more at peace.
Alison has a deep understanding of mental health, having worked in that sector of the NHS since 2007, and has provided coaching and mentorship for NHS staff in the Yorkshire and Humber region, as part of a volunteer scheme run by the NHS Leadership Academy.
Continuing to keep a presence in mental health, wellbeing, equality and diversity; Alison holds a part time position within the NHS, working across the health and care system as Deputy Director for the small and impactful team called Thrive by Design
We are so proud of the work we do to strive to ensure everyone who needs care can access it in a way that suits their needs. We work from the heart and our values are who we are.
Message from Alison:
My journey to this point has been long and varied, though everything I have learnt has brought me to this, my life purpose. After qualifying as a life coach with the Coaching Academy in London, I was humbled to go on to mentor other aspiring coaches going through the programme. I continue to offer support to budding coaches and of course, Reiki Practitioners. Simply put, we need more healers in our world.
Outside of my practice I am a keen natural historian. I find nature soothing for the mind and spirit, walking many miles every week with mindfulness, enacting Reiki healing, and often combining with meditation too. I am grateful to be able to support the charities RSPB, BTO, and Yorkshire Wildlife Fund through my Reiki practice funds.
I have my own story to tell around mental health, and I know first hand the challenges that modern day womanhood (and manhood) brings. It has been my life’s work to understand these challenges, and holistic solutions that support a happier and healthier life. Today, with a deep understanding of the connection between mind, body and emotional/spiritual self, I offer a range of complementary therapies that work beautifully on their own or complement each other, for a blended intervention. I also collaborate with other professional therapists and experts in fields such as Nutrition and fitness.
I believe it’s important to create a safe space for my clients and students alike, where they feel supported and nourished.
This work is my passion, my life purpose, and I feel blessed to be doing what I love.
