MSSc Counselling, BBus
Alison is a certified MBSR teacher (CFM) and psychotherapist who has worked in participatory and preventive healthcare for more than 17 years. She brings an engaging, directive yet warm presence in her teaching inspired in part by study under the direction of Dr Jon Kabat-Zinn (2007) USA. While MBSR is a much loved and important part of her work, Alison is also passionately involved in workplace leadership stemming from early study in management and organisational science (QUT) and challenging life experience as a senior government media advisor and company director. Through an early and enduring personal interest in eastern wisdom traditions, in 2001 she trained to teach yoga (IYTA) and continues to bring the benefits of mindful, restorative and yin yoga to people seeking creative movement-based ways to bring ease to stressful lives.
