Before working with Alan my attitude to life was at an all-time low..communication with friends and family was basically nonexistent. My life had become unbearable. But since working with Alan my life has opened up and become so much brighter. I now have a great relationship with my family and my social life has blossomed..I’ve known Alan for over 3 years now. He is a kind, sensitive, caring man
Alan has helped me overcome a lot of issues I had in my life including addiction, alcohol, unhealthy relationships and problems within a pregnancy . I was unable to talk about anything. But talking with Alan and his very calm, gentle nature in his safe place, made everything seem more manageable and I could start to move forward. He has helped me become the strong woman I am today. He gave me a new outlook on a more positive life, a positive outlook that influences the people I have around me and choices I will make now and in my future. I will continue having the odd session to check in because he will always remind me how far I have come and how well and strong I am doing.
Alan’s mediation classes whether it be on a one to one or a group setting are an amazing experience. He makes you feel at ease right from the start. His calming voice takes you to a very calm and peaceful place, Alan teaches you to acknowledge whatever thoughts come into your mind but not to get attached to them. His guided meditations help to get you to a place of self-acceptance. The effects of his meditations are long-lasting and help you feel calm and content for a number of days after and it leaves you looking forward to the next class. Alan helps you to really appreciate the present moment and makes the Now a place you want to be. His classes are definitely a healthy choice to make.
I wasn’t sure whether counselling would actually work for me… but I was conscious, that there were things I had buried and didn’t want to discuss. I knew at times I felt quite isolated and lonely and these were just odd days when I felt down…On our first meeting, he was very approachable and I found I felt relaxed almost immediately. I didn’t feel judged, and Alan put me at ease through his natural way and made no assumptions about me. Alan came across as very genuine and gradually throughout the sessions I felt as though I could trust Alan and be open and honest about my feelings, It felt comfortable to express my feelings in a safe place, and Alan seemed to accept me for who I was and allowed me the time and my own space to do this. I discovered myself through this talking therapy…
I saw Alan every week for 12 weeks, I would go to his little space in St. Helens and sit on the sofa in his nicely scented room and calming atmosphere! I found Alan to be warm and gentle and it didn’t take long for me to be relaxed enough to open up and share my feelings…I was able to learn more about myself and connect the dots that I simply couldn’t see on my own! He really helped me to find myself and I found a great comfort from him, as a result of our sessions I feel I found a way to express my sadness in a healthier way. I would say that if you are in need of being heard and wish to find a deeper understanding of yourself / or you simply need someone to hold you whilst you work through some of your emotional pain, go see Alan! You deserve to be heard and he is a wonderful listener. Thank you so much, my friend!
