I discovered Creative Kinesiology in 2001 and was amazed by being able to converse with the whole person through using kinesiology muscle testing to gain feedback directly from the person’s body. This, combined with the Creative Kinesiology maps and balancing techniques, offers a truly holistic approach to natural health care. I completed my training in ‘Way Of The Tracker’ (2003) and ‘Perceptual Bodywork’ (2004), and bring my background in Psychosynthesis Therapeutic Counselling, together with the spiritual practice of working with the Native American Medicine Wheel to my practice.

Over the years I’ve developed a thriving practice combining these three approaches. I work with whatever my clients bring – helping them to uncover the ‘story’ of the ‘dis-ease’ they wish to explore. I am especially passionate about working over time with clients, as they enter the process of integrating and healing past shocks, stresses, traumas and other experiences that might hamper living with freedom and vitality in the now. These can manifest as physical ‘symptoms’ and the journey often involves witnessing the emotional and spiritual aspects of the story that the client is experiencing on a physical level.

So, I aim to offer a safe and supportive space, within which a journey of trust can develop. Alongside my one-to-one practice, I offer mentoring to practitioners and have recently returned to nursing part-time (which was my first training many years ago). I currently offer sessions via Skype, WhatsApp, Zoom and on the phone and will be resuming face-to-face work in the future. If you'd like to find out more about the options, please email me and we can arrange a time to have a chat on the phone.

Mentoring profile

Working with my mentor helps me to feel empowered as a therapist and also supported in the in-depth journeying work I undertake with clients. This is what I hope to offer practitioners - a confidential space where they have the opportunity to grow, develop and consolidate their learning.

I offer mentoring to practitioners both on a one-to-one and group basis. Working in groups can be a fantastic way of sharing experience with peers and delving deeper into the challenges of being a therapist - with participants offering each other support and insights in a safe and held way.

Mentoring testimonials

Never before have I worked with a therapist that made me feel so safe and so welcome to bring the parts of me I didn't like. Ali has helped me to discover and heal my childhood trauma, which was buried deep inside me. Holding space with extraordinary compassion, she has taken me to my edge and enabled me to grow beyond my story. I've wanted to work with Ali, because she has a deep knowing of her psychotherapeutic and Kinesiology tools. By witnessing her in group work, I have learned therapeutic tools that would normally take many years of psychotherapy training. I highly recommend her personal and group work. (CK Practitioner, 2018)

I thoroughly recommend Ali's mentoring workshops... I've loved the depth of work we’ve managed to achieve in them. That we’ve managed to find this depth is testament to her ability to hold an incredibly safe space for self-enquiry, and to gently and perceptively question and challenge. My practice and my personal client work have come on leaps and bounds since working with Ali in this way. I’ve improved my understanding of self and process, helping me understand my clients and support them far better. I certainly wouldn't be half the practitioner I am without Ali’s mentoring and ‘Journeying with clients’ workshops. (CK Practitioner, 2018)

Teaching testimonials

Ali is an amazing teacher, her peaceful, intuitive, nurturing way of teaching brought out the best in me. She was completely present, yet an ‘empty space’ for us each to explore what we needed to. I’ll be coming back to learn more from her.
Thank you x (Way of the Tracker Student/ Practitioner 2018)

The LifeTracking course was truly inspirational. The teaching I received was excellent and professionally led. Ali was very skilled and knowledgeable, building up the course progressively - I have loved every minute. I can't recommend LifeTracking enough and am so looking forward to the professional training. Thank you Ali for everything! (LifeTracking student, 2017)
