Your guidance was wonderful. The nurturing atmosphere you created helped us form a community. N.W. 2018
Everything was useful in big or small ways, disconnecting from learned patterns with a ‘beginner’s mind’ is so important. Focusing on listening to others. Listening to ourselves and being more accepting. Opening up and embracing our differences and appreciating our uniqueness. D.R. 2018
Just wanted to write a personal note to say a truly heartfelt thank you to you for being such a generous and inspiring teacher in guiding me through my new journey of Mindfulness. A.E. 2018
Through my practice I feel my mind is opening, strengthening and realising that every practice is unique makes it one of the attractions for me to continue daily, being as consistent as I can. I’m already benefiting in ways that I can’t quite explain. C.F 2018
Take care and keep up your amazing work ! You certainly changed my life for the better ! K.T. 2016
Thankyou for the training session yesterday it was great we both learnt a lot from you. I have been practicing the new techniques today and they’ve made my Job so much easier and more enjoyable so a big thank you. L. and O. 2018
I would like to share with you that I experienced something I did not expect today during the body scan. Despite my intense pain today, during the body scan I did not felt my pain and I felt my body very light like if I was flying. This moment was very emotional for me because my pains are still there but I managed to enjoy this moment.
I was totally captivated by Alison’s voice. B.D. 2017
Mindfulness has changed my marriage, my relationship with our kids, with my parents, sister, friends and most importantly my relationship with myself. C.S. 2014

I let slip for a while and when my blood pressure went up and I started becoming anxious I knew why. Two weeks of daily body scans and I am back to normal. Thanks to you! H. R. 2013
Thanks very much for giving me the opportunity to do the course. Your energy and enthusiasm have shone through constantly and you are an inspiration. Today especially must have been a very long and draining day. I shall try hard to keep it up and hopefully can tune in to whatever you do on line. J.R 2014
It’s great to be reminded (again…!) just how totally amazing your stuff is……. Today…. I went away with a new and much lighter perspective on a whole load of stuff…..!
The kids were great…… Can’t believe I didn’t bring a camera….. Shame you missed L & M – they were really doing it…! 3 year olds…. being mindful – that is unheard of…..! M.D 2013
I am sending L your email for future mindfulness seminars! Thank you so much for such a beautiful experience! My life is changing daily and I’m so much more peaceful and feel more and more mindful, relaxed and joyful.. God Bless P.K 2012
Foundation 2014-15 Presentations Feedback, Bangor University
This was a fully embodied, gently-paced presentation reflected in your open presence to yourself and to the group. You demonstrated a watchful and gentle presence to yourself on a number of occasions when you allowed yourself to feel the emotion attached to what you were saying – this is great teaching. It was wonderful to ‘see’ how the power of being listened to is now reflected in your practice to self. Your articulation of ‘listening’ to the body was also evident right from the beginning by pausing and sensing into the body. It was interesting to hear how greater understanding of the Buddhist background to mindfulness-based approaches has lent a softening (in terms of ‘turning towards’) and legitimacy to your practice. You articulated the more compassionate movement within of turning towards some painful and difficult challenges in your life beautifully. The simple power of being with what is ‘here, now’ was apparent in how you embodied this approach. This was, all-told, powerful yet highly sensitive teaching. You have much to offer in continuing to teach and externalise your practice in this way. Well done.
Meditation of Friendly Wishes for Penny and Tina ages 7 and 10 yrs
“Thank you the CD arrived in my letterbox!! It was like the fairies had been.
Both girls slept on the same bed listening to the cd.
At first Penny was restless and said ‘ where’s the story’ and wasn’t so good at lying still doing the breathing bit but I massaged her feet and when you mentioned her teddy, the cat and her imaginary friends and the story came out her face lit up and she was asleep by the end.”
