Working with men of all ages and backgrounds I've come to appreciate just how equally tender and vulnerable they are to women. The perceived difference comes from how they've dealt with the intense societal pressures placed on them to 'toughen up' and 'soldier on' regardless of the cost to their health and wellbeing.
This lack of self-nurturing and care is reflected in the steady rise of men's health issues such as prostate cancer and heart disease which show a hardening of their tender nature to protect themselves from the judgement of the outside world.
Finding it difficult to express, men will often retreat and hold back the truth of how they're feeling, causing them to feel mis-understood in their relationships and creating an isolation that leads to depression and in some cases suicide.
Understanding these pressures and working with an openness and care, I support men to develop their expression in relationships and learn how to properly self-nuture and care so that they can live in a way that is truly loving.
The sessions are a great support for men suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, depression, relationship issues and also physical complaints like chronic fatigue, insomnia, shoulder and back pain.

Working with Alison has been very interesting. Alison gave me a different perspective and a different set of tools to apply in day to day life. For me it was about stepping out of my head & over thinking, and into my intuition & gut instinct. Ali's combination of powerful intuition (she is gifted), good humour, energy work and philosophy makes each session insightful and easy.
I highly recommend booking in a few sessions with Alison and enjoying the journey.
Alison's esoteric massage is always a deeply restorative healing, which leaves me feeling completely nurtured. Her intuitive ability to sense exactly what is needed is amazing. I always leave her treatment room feeling like a new man.

Alison’s work has been a revelation to me - as a fairly typical 'alpha male' in a serious professional job, it has been traditional medicine and physio and just ‘smash through’ all the way until now. I went to my first session with Alison based on a recommendation from a martial arts teacher as treatment for a chronic shoulder problem and I will admit straight away that had I known in detail what Ali’s sessions claimed to be about, I may not have gone at all for that first consultation! But I was surprised when Ali quickly saw that I was looking for much more than just a fix for my shoulder injury (which she has helped anyway!).
I had been going through a very difficult life event and frankly was not doing that well but Ali was able to get me to understand where my body and mind was at and start the process of getting back to being me and just being kinder to myself physically and mentally. My sleep has improved which was also an issue and I find I am starting to reconnect with the calm, happy person I normally am.
I have been going to see Ali for about 6 weeks and I still laugh with her about how amazed I am that I ever even started her treatment but I just cannot dispute the positive changes it has triggered in me. I don’t feel awkward at all with Ali’s sessions, she is a lovely, relaxed, considerate and caring soul. I would strongly recommend Ali to anyone needing a bit of help going through a difficult time.
After a serious back and neck injury three years ago I had been put on a very heavy pain medication just to get through each day. I was running my own construction company and had a family to support so I had no choice but to keep pushing on. Rest, unfortunately was not an option for me. I was therefore on this merry-go-round of pain and medication with no light at the end of the tunnel.
I was referred to Alison Coleman about 3 months ago and started seeing her on a weekly basis. In this short time with Ali's help I have been able to totally reclaim my life. I am no longer on any pain medication and the chronic pain I was suffering from has all but disappeared. Beyond dissolving my pain away Ali has also taught me the importance of reconnecting with my mind ,body and soul. My only regret with Ali is that I did not meet her sooner!
