Wirral-based transformational life worked for the NHS for 25 years before starting her own business and her debut book, A Path Travelled, has now been published. Tony McDonough reports

Domestic violence, depression, alcohol and substance abuse all formed part of Alison Blacklers daily experience inaquarter of century working for the NHS.

Now, with the UK still mostly in lockdown and millions of people cooped up at home, the Wirral-based transformational life coach fears the social fabric will be pushed to its limits.It seems timely, then, that this period of huge social disruption also sees the publication of Alisons debut self-help book.

Walk into any bookshop and there will no doubt bealarge bookcase groaning with self-help books.

But how many of those authors have dealt with the same challenging personal journeys as many of their readers the disappointments, the stumbling blocks, the setbacks? And how many have seen first-hand, in their professional careers, the tumultuous lives of others?

Alison, a regular contributor to LBN, has found that dealing with and confronting her own personal challenges has formed the cornerstone for all her work.

All that experience, all that knowledge has been brought together in her debut book,APathTravelled. Available now, the book takes all that accumulated know-how and wisdom and offers an invaluable guide to following your ownpath, as Alison describes it.

APathTravelledisabook exploring how we are shaped and influenced by the lives that we lead and then how this can play out in terms of our thinking and behaviours, both positively and negatively, said Alison.By understanding where your feelings stem from, you can learn that you can choose how to manage them and change your response to lifes obstacles.

We have phases and milestones in our lives which can reveal our true selves. In the book, I have brought together much of what I have learned and experienced inapalatable way for you.

All this seems so pertinent, now. We are in the midst of not justapublic health crisis, but one of the biggest tests of our mental strengths since the Second World War. People are anxious and scared. And many find themselves confronting their own personals demons, as well as the flesh and blood threats in the form of domestic abusers.

Born and brought up in the North East of England, Alison recognised that she lacked self-confidence and had limiting self-beliefs. She was influenced by what others thought was best for her and therefore took many years to get onto the right career, and in fact life,path. She is able to walk the reader through their own experience and help to explore often hidden limitations.

As she moved further into her adult years, she began to ask compelling questions of her life. She explains: Over 25 years ago I found myself noticing that I had to take personal responsibility for my own life and yet I did not know how.

I became aware that I was going through life, looking outside for the answers and yet missing the answers that were inside me. All the situations and people that have been in my life have been there forareason, and my book helps you to learn that this will be the same for you.

This wasagradual learning curve for me which took many years. The wealth of my journey started to unfold when I realised that I couldnt free myself from my baggage without understanding its purpose and reason and thereby change my thinking.

Alison worked in the NHS for 24 years and during that time, her roles included supporting people who had suffered domestic abuse and drugs and alcohol addictions. She also gained extensive experience in public health, managing projects for young people, and latterly asalead for safeguarding.

During her career she has trained asacounsellor and CBT therapist,aMaster NLP Practitioner andaClean Language Coach. By 2010ayearning forachange in direction saw Alison leave her role with the NHS to establish her own business, 2minds. During the last 10 years, she has worked one-to-one with many individual clients, delivered leadership and team programmes for large corporates such as BMW, Sainsburys, as well as other SMB. She also enjoys her work in prisons and schools across the UK.

APathTravelled, my first published book is designed to fast track your thinking and behaviours so you can have happiness and fulfilment. It is written foraBritish audience as much of this market is American and can be harder for us to digest.

I hope to enlighten and inspire you, so that you realise that everything does happen forareason and that reason is personal growth.

Alisons desire is for people to findaway to be the best version of themselves, free from limitations and to follow their own dreams. Click here to order a copy of A Path Travelled
