It has been such a pleasure to work with Alison. She proves that you can gain WITHOUT pain. She approached my problems with an ease and confidence which allowed me to discuss them without guilt or shame. She listened carefully, then guided me through the fascinating process of adjusting my default reactions that sometimes paralyse me. I could feel the difference within hours. What’s more, I can remind myself how to access those changes whenever I want to. Sometimes just for fun. It feels good to be free.

Working with Alison has indeed been transformational. Just like it says on the tin.

Alison has helped me tremendously. Using NLP techniques that were so simple she was able to achieve so much in helping me move forward in life. The booklet Alison wrote on goal setting was incredibly helpful. Her friendly and professional manner made me feel at ease in the sessions. It was a joy to see the changes I’ve been able to make.

I would thoroughly recommend Alison and Alison Petty Coaching for the help and support she can give with whatever life throws our way.

Alison provided coaching sessions to me when I was going through some difficult times. Her patience, pragmatic and caring nature made it incredibly easy for me to talk and open up to her. Alison really knows how to listen, is non judgemental and made me view things in a very different way. She offered sound guidance and support, making suggestions and practical ways that she could help. Alison also provided additional support whenever needed.

Alison is an excellent coach and has provided me with many new tools to quieten the noise and manage.
I will continue to use Alison’s coaching services and would thoroughly recommend her to anyone.'
Kate Roper ~ Chartered MCIPD
Alison is great at asking questions that really make me think about why I act the way I do and consider if this is really the most helpful and constructive behaviour?
Or am I sometimes acting through ingrained habits?

She has also helped me consider some useful approaches for modifying some unhelpful habits and updating some behavioural patterns.

‘Alison is a magician!
Before our coaching session, I was at a standstill with reaching my goal.
I knew what I wanted but had no clue how to get there or how to get over the barriers in my way.

Now I have faith in myself and my work. I am taking my time and producing work I’m truly proud of.
I’m looking forward to seeing what happens and what I’ll achieve!’

'I found this online coaching course with Alison very interesting. We covered a number of topics such as meditation techniques and role play to help me boost my confidence in job interviews and other stressful situations.

At the moment we are looking at questions that you may get asked in a job interview and Alison is helping me to understand some of the questions that I am struggling with and then when I have a basic answer encouraging me to build on this, so that in an interview situation I will be able to answer the questions more fully and with confidence. I have really enjoyed this course and found it very helpful.

I would just like to thank Alison for all her help and support which I really appreciate and I am sure it will help me in the future.'

‘After only one session with Alison she gave me a technique to rid myself quickly of my overwhelming fear and it works!
I’m looking forward to future sessions where I’m sure Alison can help me in my quest to live in the moment and become mindful.’

'A friend of mine recently referred me to Alison aka The Minimaliser’s home consultancy services. I had my free consultation with her and then promptly told her that I had the mother of all challenges for her… As soon as we set up our first appointment at my house I began to feel a bit nervous. My parents both passed away in recent times and I’m now living in their old house. It is full of a mixture of both mine and their ‘stuff’ that needs sorting and it all feels utterly overwhelming dealing with that in the midst of this time of bereavement.

In the past I have tried to tackle the ‘stuff’ but after an hour or so, I have to stop due to the emotional nature of the task. I explained this to Alison and that there were other factors involved so decluttering might not be an option at this point. Alison arrived and we started our tour of the house. This, in itself being quite a big thing for me as I’ve felt overwhelmed by it all and am currently feel like I am living in something that is stuck somewhere between my parents house and my home. A sort of twilight zone between the past and future.

During the tour Alison not only listened to my story but asked questions too and as the tour concluded we stopped and chatted. At no point did I feel judged or put under any pressure to do anything that I didn’t feel comfortable with. Alison said that she felt I needed a space within the house that I could call my own until able to complete the sorting of the whole house. Somewhere that I would be happy to sit, entertain or contemplate. I agreed and we began to consider the options. I am lucky with the amount of space that I have so we decided that the conservatory, which I have been using for storage would be my ‘special place’.

Over the next five hours, the transformation was made. At no point did Alison make me feel that it was a chore. We talked, moved things, laughed and drank a lot of tea. I am extremely pleased with the minimalistic space that we have created, and since the visit, Alison has given me the confidence to continue the process we have started. I would highly recommend Alison as her work ethic is the right balance of enthusiasm, efficiency, compassion and understanding. Never too pushy, always on point and it never once felt like a chore. Thank you so much Alison. I’m glad I took the plunge.

Your hard work and my new space has given me a new lease of life.
All the very best for the future and one last massive thank you!'

'Alison is great at listening to what you need and talking you through what she wants you to do.
She totally puts you at ease and you feel much better and not as nervous about what you are going to be doing.
I would highly recommend her to anyone.'

‘Very flexible, easy to talk to and engaged.
Alison taught me a technique that has worked wonders for helping me get out of bad moods or low times in my life!
Highly recommended setting up a meeting with her, it’s well worth it!’

'Alison recently helped me sort through my wardrobe and pare it down.
It was a task I had put off for a while, but Alison helped me feel comfortable and confident enough to tackle it.

We spent about an hour going through each item individually and assessing whether it made me feel good. Alison helped me gain a new perspective on items in my wardrobe which allowed me to let go of things I didn't wear anymore but had an attachment to.

I now have a wardrobe where every piece fits me and makes me feel good, and I can't thank Alison enough.
I recommend her highly for any help you need organising or minimising your belongings.

Our attic had basically become a bit of a dumping ground since we moved in 2 years ago. We had loads of half unpacked boxes which we just never got round to sorting and we just kept putting off the awful job of clearing it! Fortunately we got Alison to come and tackle it and wow! She got straight in there, no faffing around and seemed to have her own special system sorted instantly. I just had to sit and say what I wanted to keep and what I didn’t and she took care of everything else.

There was no pressure on me in the whole process and I was so impressed at her speed and efficiency. Now our attic is much calmer and I actually know where to find things! The cherry on top of the service was that Alison also took everything away with her to the tip and to charity which I was extremely grateful for as nobody wants that looming over them! Fantastic service!

‘Alison’s coaching style is calm yet powerful, based on years of experience which she applies wisely. If you’re ruminating and need help then I highly recommend you schedule a coaching session with Alison.‘
Andrew Wake ~ CEO, Traiders Digital Limited
'I had been meaning to sort out my wardrobe for a long time, but with Alison’s help I got it all sorted quickly and efficiently. I didn’t realise how much of a change she could make! I didn’t think I had that much stuff but we got rid of seven carrier bags of clothes which she traded in at H&M for me and I got a £5 voucher to use there in return for each of them!

Note: Andy is referring to H&M’s clothes recycling scheme. As part of the service that I provide, should you have bags of clothing to get rid of, I will either take them to a charity shop for you or to H&M and exchange them for one £5 voucher per bag. The clothes get either recycled, turned into new clothes or re-used as second-hand clothes.

‘Most succinct and useful goal setting tool that I’ve ever used – guided by an incredibly motivated and kind person!’
Henny ~ College Student
'Alison helped us to sort out our attic which had gotten on top of us rather. She was efficient and pro-active but also patient and worked at our pace which we really needed. In a few hours, she had transformed the central area into a space that we can now move around in and we can now access boxes that we couldn't get at before.

She also re-packed boxes which meant by the end there were a lot less half-empty boxes cluttering up the place.She also made the whole process feel a lot simpler than it normally does when Charlie and I go up there and try to deal with it. It's not a task that either of us relish and I have to admit I don't find getting rid of things easy but Alison seemed to understand that and helped me to see the process in a different light. I might even go as far as to say I enjoyed it!'
