‘Before I started working with Alison I was struggling to be able to actively decide and acknowledge my souls true values in order to find my true love and light within my own life. I was struggling to find my spirits inner peace, because my mind was running a trillion miles(kilometers) an hour and it was hard to figure out what direction I needed to take to start living my life authentically with my true heart.
During my time working with Alison I had my breakthrough, I was able to really discover my own personal values, figure out my dream company ‘Love Out Loud’ which I am launching, I learnt how to heal myself in a healthy way when negative emotions/moods come through me. I feel as I was looking to get insight on my business when I started working with Alison but I ended up getting insights and breakthroughs on how to live a more fulfilling and sustainable life style as well!
Since I began my Coaching Journey with Alison I have been able to start my dream company ‘Love Out Loud’ to eventually work for myself, anywhere in the world with the flexibility that I want at the age of 23! I now feel more confident, have raised my positivity to send out bigger ripples of love into the world and I have learned to love myself at each present moment.’Colleen Gallagher, Love out Loud Limited
‘Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you Alison, you are such an amazing coach and friend. You have helped me push through fears, limiting beliefs and helped me gain clarity and focus within my business for which I am eternally grateful for. I was struggling with clarity, motivation and direction and you have really helped me define where I want to take my business and what is most important for me to be working on. The systems you have and the questions you ask to help move forward are so valuable and have changed my life. Thank you eternally.’Rachael Hughes
‘I had the pleasure of working with the beautiful Alison Callan this morning and it truly was such a heartwarming experience.
Alison holds such a loving, encouraging and open space for you to talk about your goals, challenges and ideas surrounding your business in such a highly supportive way. She gave me such practical tools, ideas, methods and a whole brand new understanding of how to grow, structure and streamline my business more effectively.
Whether you are a brand new entrepreneur or you have been in the game for awhile, Alison is your go-to girl for consciously creating the life you deserve within your business. I have so much love, respect and trust for what Alison does and I highly recommend her to anyone who is ready to say YES to consciously creating the life and business of their dreams.
Thank you lovely xo’Jess Ellen
‘My introduction to Alison came via a close friend a month and a half ago. I actually can’t believe the change that has occurred in my life since then, much under the guidance of Alison.
Alison has been instrumental in focusing my attention to what really matters in life, both professionally and personally. She has held the mirror to some of my behaviours and perceptions that has allowed me to accept change in my life.
My journey started when I wanted to explore the options of transitioning out of “the day job”, to something that I have immense respect for, the science of yoga. Through Alison’s guidance I have shifted yoga being a personal practice to the possibility of becoming my vocation in my life.
I am well on the path to clearly defining where I want to be in life and how I want to live it. Through Alison’s guidance and exacting focus I now teach yoga (asana practice), have undertaken additional studies, and have shifted my perspective of life. Admittedly, you have to be ready for change. Alison is a very dynamic, consummate professional who will ask the hard questions, and make you search for the results- which, from my perspective is where lasting transformation takes place.
I would highly recommend Alison as a professional/ life coach. She’s exacting and challenges your thinking and approach to your career/ life. If you are are looking for change, and guidance to make that change, get in touch with Alison.‘
‘When I approached Alison, I was overwhelmed, frustrated, and exhausted. I had a great reputation as a hypnotherapist amongst existing clients and friends, but no idea how to collate my desire for business-growth into time-focussed action steps. Adding to this was a seeming inability to respect my own professional boundaries, plus a looming public speaking event which had placed me directly in the path of one of my biggest fears.
Alison’s approach immediately blew me away. Before meeting we were already focussing on my needs. Upon meeting, she identified where my attention would wander and would pull it back mindfully. It was like being reminded why I wanted to be a hypnotherapist in the first place. It was a relief to have permission to focus on my needs for a change. The clarity and focus came back fast.
From the discussions came the action steps. This was what I had wanted and Alison delivered fearlessly yet with heart. I was shaky at first and terrified of the public speaking event, but I took the steps recommended. Momentum and clarity grew and Alison’s support never wavered.
By the time I reached the speaking event I was ready. The fear didn’t go away but it was no longer crippling. I spoke on a very esoteric subject, and can’t begin to tell you how amazing it was to receive not only compliments but follow-up enquiries to my practise days later.
As I write this, business is growing. I take daily action steps and am booking new clients. I have identified the exact market I wish to serve and have tweaked my practise accordingly. I respect my boundaries and time. I have focus, clarity, drive, and passion. I’m actively seeking speaking events. I have a very clear action plan and structured goals. I have zero doubt these goals will be met.
In short, Alison Callan has completely changed the scope and direction of not only my Holistic Hypnotherapy practise but my approach to life.
I cannot recommend Alison highly enough. If you’re sitting on the fence, I urge you to call her. I have no hesitation in putting my professional name to such a bold statement. It’s possible I wouldn’t be operating under it without her.‘Malcolm Wilson, Founder of Inner Transitions Hypnoenergetics
‘I first saw Alison six months ago regarding my business stresses and work/life balance, or so I thought. I was stressed, anxious and generally operating in survival mode. What has transpired since that first meeting has been nothing short of a miracle.
Alison has carefully and skilfully guided me through thought provoking sessions challenging my entrenched beliefs and ideals on happiness and the future. She has provided clarity to such a level that it has absolutely transformed my life.
I now have a zest for life that I never knew existed. I awaken every day with a happiness, drive and energy that I’d never had before and I am excited about my future.
I will always be grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Alison and cannot recommend her more highly. I believe every person could do with an Alison in their life.’
‘You are one amazing lady and you came into my life at the exact right time. Amazing things are now happening in my life since meeting up with you… You’re the start of something fabulous. Thank you!’Alli Paris
‘Alison is an amazing coach! From the first moment I met her she had an incredible way of making you feel at ease and quickly gets to the crux of the issue. Alison’s not afraid of asking the hard questions to make you think and at every session I came away with exactly what I needed at the time. I would recommend Alison to anyone who needs to rethink where they are and what they want to achieve. Thanks so much Alison.’Rachel Rogers
‘Alison is a wonderful sounding board, a great critical thinker who works with her clients to help them sift through their needs, goals and opportunities – and any current challenges – to determine what life, business or next chapter that they want to create.
She is compassionate but straight up with her questions and insights, which allows people to to focus truly on what and why they have chosen the goals and dreams that they have – and what actions feel like the right ones, right now to move towards their goals.
She is both a great facilitator of small groups and excellent for 1:1 planning sessions and I highly recommend her to anyone.’Catherine Wilson
‘Alison was asked to implement a mindfulness pilot as part of our regional wellness initiative – she was professional, listened to our needs and created two successful workshops. Feedback from attendees has been extremely positive. They are more self-aware and discovered effective tools and strategies to help better manage themselves in challenging situations.‘Beca
I am a big fan of prompts and reminders and believe they are crucial particularly during times of change and transformation. And this is why I love Alison’s work. Alison has been very clever in creating her Mindful Mindset Magnets as a tool to help remind us where we are on our journey. Right now, I am welcoming abundance and finding clarity – on a daily basis – thanks to Alison and her magnetsKylie Angove, Say it Sista

‘As our world becomes busier and faster, and we try to pack more into our day, it can be easy to get caught up in the race and feel over-whelmed by our ‘do-to’ lists. Because we spend our day nurturing the well-being of children (as both parents and teachers), we know it’s important that we also take care of our own health and well-being, so we were looking for ways to bring more calmness and balance into our lives. Alison was the answer!
She spoke to us about the benefits of mindfulness and took us through some guided relaxation exercises, which were a real treat after a busy day. Alison helped us ground ourselves, by showing us how to create calm moments in our day and be more present and intentional in our interactions. She also gave us some tools for slowing down and bringing more happiness and gratitude into our lives.
It was really beneficial for us to participate in her workshops as a team, so we could re-visit the key concepts together and encourage each other to make positive changes. If you feel like your team needs greater cohesion or a bit of a boost, then I would highly recommend Alison. Her presence was like a breath of fresh air.’Rebecca Miller, Team Leader at Mount Cook Preschool
If you want to move forward with your life supported with a tailor made program then this is the person for you. The sessions of mindfulness our teaching team have had with Alison have had a profoundly positive impact on each member both professionally and personally. She has enlightened us with skills for life, for which we will be eternally grateful!Rose Duffy
‘I’ve have had 3 transforming sessions with Alison via Skype.
In the spirit of mindfulness I’ve been in a different place each time, sometimes work has been on my mind, other times relationships. She’s taken each challenge and turned my perspective on it around and given me the tools to do that myself in every area of my life. I look forward to our sessions and the thoughtfully considered notes I receive after to reaffirm my learning. These are something I know I’ll refer back to time and time again.
I feel like I’ve done lots of good mental spiritual work on myself in the past through reading, meditating and seeing the odd therapist along the way :o)
Alison’s sessions though have surprised, delighted and enlightened me and given me hope that things can always get better.’Dara Wakely
‘Coaching with Alison is a truly enjoyable experience. She is professional, fully committed, and put me at ease straight away. I’ve had 5 coaching sessions, which helped me clearly focus my goals and develop realistic actions to work towards them.
Alison was able to challenge my thinking, as well as help me celebrate my success along the way.
I would recommend Alison to anyone seeking personal coaching, whether it is career or lifestyle focused. Thanks for all your guidance Alison – I especially loved the mindful breathing to begin coaching and the guided meditation.’Lorraine
‘Alison, you have done some amazing work with ‘Jane’. We haven’t talked about her session but I’ve observed her making some wonderful decisions towards her purpose since talking with you. I am so so happy for her. Great job!’Kathryn
‘Alison came to give our teachers a brief insight into Mindfulness. She was professional, well-organised and a pleasure to work with. It was a fantastic start to our Wellness Weekend which our teachers throughly enjoyed. Both preschools now have small mindful rituals which they have incorporated into their days.’Jo Ward, Owner Farmhouse Preschools
‘Alison developed good understanding, good link to my personality type. Insightful questions… I like how you allowed me to “find my voice”. We touched on some of my deepest fears and insecurities, I feel I really opened up to you.’
‘Far out that was impressive. An incredibly helpful and positive session. So many great moments. Really looking forward to getting ‘reset’ to help remove/reduce the self doubts. I love the way you ‘clear things away’, and help me find my own answers.’Graham

Coaching with Alison felt nurturing, and helped to give me strength and inspiration to carry on in the right direction towards my ultimate goal. A fond memory of one of my coaching exercises is the little postcard I made.
I had it pinned up on my desk. I chose various images that I found inspirational. Travel was important to me, as it signified my freedom. I had an unhappy childhood, and longed for escape. But I wasn’t really sure of where I wanted to go! I really just wanted to find happiness, but didn’t know what to do or where to go to find it. I really wanted to travel the world from a young age, but had found as an adult that I hadn’t managed to get very far, or find much happiness. I chose Rome as a destination, coz you’ve gotta start somewhere! There was a signpost to Rome on my postcard, and various forms of travel I could use to get there, including Doc Martens boots. I had always felt safe wearing a decent, sturdy pair of shoes. Before I could drive, I used to walk everywhere! There was a Mini car – I had always wanted a Mini. And a dragon! The dragon could be a form of transport, and a protector along my journey. Having survived a traumatic past, although I had suffered and often still struggled with life, I felt an affinity to the dragon – I was tough and strong. I was a survivor! Having the postcard up on the wall gave me inspiration to follow my dreams, and to carry on in my quest to seek happiness
