A Path Travelled

Book reviews

‘This book is like going for a lovely walk with a clever insightful friend, enjoyable, conversational with just the right amount of challenge. As you go along your thinking changes, your mind begins to clear, and you find you have more choices and clearer thinking on your return.

‘A wonderful reminder that no-one can ‘make us feel’ anything. So often in life it is not other people’s actions that harm us, but how we react to them. This book enlightens readers that by choosing how we feel, react and respond we can choose a new path and a new future.’

About this book

A Path Travelled, my first published book is designed to fast track your thinking and behaviours so you can have happiness and fulfilment”.

With a straight talking, simple approach, A Path Travelled takes you on a journey of self-discovery that will help you to understand your own behaviour and how other people affect your life. 

This new book draws on many years of experience as a successful coach, therapist combined with her own personal experiences.


Author's personal journey

Walk into any bookshop and there will no doubt be a large 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?


In this together

A Path Travelled is a book 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 life’s obstacles”
