The Full 360: The Mindful Path to Better Living

As a mindfulness teacher, Aly believes that awareness in all areas of our lives creates space for change. Until we fully accept who and where we are in this moment, we can’t take steps on the path to where we would like to be. Bringing mindfulness gently into all areas of your life helps to bring trained awareness to the forefront, empowering you to make better decisions, become less reactive, less stressed and more content.

For organizations, less stressed and more content individuals leads to a healthier company and greater growth.

Aly shares key tools and starting points for people focusing on her mantra that; ‘small changes done consistently bring about lasting differences in our lives’. This session includes mindful tips to gratitude, sleep and stress management.

The Power of Presence

Using the power of mindfulness, awareness and intuition we can create positive change leading to the real results we truly desire for ourselves, our business and our loved ones. 

In this talk/presentation Aly explores tools and techniques to help us tap into our potential and our true intuition. 

She shares fun and interactive exercises and mindfulness techniques which helps us to experience true presence.
Most of all she asks important questions because its only by asking the right questions can people search within for the answers they seek.

By truly stepping on the path to knowing ourselves we can become more resilient, focused and self-assured and confident. This leads us to become better partners, friends, coworkers and even bosses.

Key takeaways: 

  • Exercises to help activate the vagus nerve (also covering what this is) in the body and why it’s important 
  • Mindset 
  • Mindfulness techniques 
  • Coherence Practices 
  • Stress management 
  • Navigating change 
  • Building resilience 


The Full 360 Workshop: Live Better, Feel Better

The full 360 approach to health and wellbeing encourages people to look at all areas of their lives and not just one or two. Aly shares tools and techniques that help people connect, go within and create lasting change through intuition and everyday small behavioural changes. Aly firmly believes that real wellness can only truly be achieved when we connect the dots, taking a full 360 approach with our own health and wellbeing. This means looking at body, mind, spirit, our environment and the quality of our relationships.

This workshop will bring guests through different, fun techniques including mindfulness, gratitude, self-care tips and what effect our food has on our mood. Aly will also talk about looking at our toxic load and the products we use on a daily basis both in the home and on ourselves. Most women put on average 168 – 515 chemicals* onto their skin each day. This has a very strong and negative effect on our overall health and wellbeing and something Aly is passionate about spreading the word on.

What people are saying

“Alison has been a fantastic addition to the Allianz Active & Aware programme. Her enthusiasm and passion for Health and Wellbeing was palpable from the moment she arrived. Her honesty about her journey was refreshing and ensured that her presentation was incredibly interesting and most importantly enabled her to connect with the groups she was addressing. Her presentation style is effortlessly engaging, exuberant and infectious, and most importantly inspirational as she demonstrates how everyone has the ability to take control of our wellbeing destiny.”

Events and CSR Executive, Allianz Ireland

“I want to thank Alison so so much! It was simply wonderful – so much powerful information. Her energy and enthusiasm was infectious. Please thank her for us, we are incredibly grateful.”


“I first met Alison on the ‘Walk In My Shoes’ fundraising and awareness project. Ali was a rock of good sense and committed to sharing her story with anyone who needed help or could help. She has an intuitive personality and a need to open things up for discussion until she understands all aspects of the issues. Ali is a doer and I am grateful that she has given so much of herself to raise awareness for mental health issues in Ireland.”

Adam Clayton - U2

“Alison joined us for the final day of our annual three day off site meeting to help us focus on personal development. Alison’s session was at once practical in terms of steps we can take to balance home life and work life, but in truth it delivered much more…introspection, self-reflection, emotion  and motivation. It was real, tapped into our investment in our people in a genuine way and allowed us to look at our development as people rather than employees. It hit exactly the right note and at the right time. I would highly recommend Alison if you are open to honesty, sincerity and looking after your team beyond what the ‘job’ provides them.”
