I feel so very grateful and privileged to have been able to work with Ali. With great skill and regard he created space for me where I could meet and accept parts of myself that I had previously rejected and denied. This has allowed me to enjoy greater love and compassion for myself and given me tools to continue to explore that inner landscape without fear, feeling defensive or otherwise. Whilst Ali is passionate about working with men I, identifying as a woman, felt fully met on that deep soulful, non-judgemental, humane, non binary level. Working with Ali was a a gift of life to myself and I hope that many more benefit from working with Ali.

"Thank you for yesterday. It was exactly what I needed! I really do value this work that your offering. I felt like you held the space from the first phone call through all the emails in such a way that built trust and helped me reach a place where I was able to express what I needed to. I felt heard and acknowledged. Many thanks for all.
Today I feel braver and empowered in way that’s supportive, and more freer than I’ve ever felt."

"Throughout the session I felt a very good sense of safety, like I could be free in that holding. Ali midwifed an excellent process, with much depth and tender enquiry and I felt moved by that. I am cogitating and settling into the depth of what was generously facilitated for me. I really think it was a beautiful piece of work, gratitude and celebration all round. I got clearer in bringing home an exquisite part of myself."
"It was profoundly useful and I am full of gratitude. There's so much deeper gold in what we uncovered. I do feel I am relating differently… and am letting that come into integration."
"It was a deep session."
— D.S, Stroud
"I felt safe and held.I liked how much Ali let me lead what happened whilst also gently but firmly guiding me."
"The session was very powerful and enabled me to experience myself and my wounds differently..."

"Thanks for my session this week. There is a subtle shift in me since and I'm very happy! Throughout I felt safe and held, and when I didn't (just part of my process) it was easy to say and for Ali to reassure me. I was impressed with Ali's probing questions and allowing holding. The session was so useful... particularly the bit where Ali questioned me gently, hanging out with me as a six year old. Something in that experience feels enduringly healing."
"The session definitely met and exceeded my expectations."
— C.M. Somerset
"I felt heard and Ali kept checking in with me and adjusting his approach in response to my answers. I felt we did the process together, in partnership. It wasn't 'done to me'. I was safely guided through."
— J.D. Somerset
"I have only good things to say about Ali. There was a sense of calm in the room when I arrived and I felt a warm welcome with ease. I felt I could just talk and ramble on about how I was feeling. He let me do this until it became obvious what I wanted to happen in the space. He listened with empathy and I felt heard and understood."
""When we moved to the carpet, he guided me through relationship with my inner critic with her nagging voice. It was very helpful to have this personified, listening both as a little girl and as The Queen I am today. We also explored the role of my Warrior, which in desperate need for rest, could act more as a boundary keeper to make time for myself, rather than fighting through life."
"I felt lighter after the session with more permission to follow my creative urges."
