About Allie Stewart FRSA
So here I am – Allie Stewart. Born and bred and currently resident in the UK. I’m married with two daughters and have led what some might say is an “interesting life”, most of which you can read about in my early blogs.
Wherever I may be now, it certainly hasn’t all been plain sailing and my path to today has not been straightforward. But I think we can all say that – an unusual or unorthodox upbringing and difficult times are not unique to me or to you. However, those challenges do make you the person you are today – a unique individual with tastes, views and preferences all of your own. That’s not to say we know what to do with our unique individuality all of the time and in fact in many instances we can be positively baffled by the differences between ourselves and others, but it does make life interesting.
Looking back everything has all fallen into place rather nicely given my fascination with the differences between people, but what did in fact lead me to my career and passion is somewhat more mundane. As a married young mum with two daughters I needed a qualification I could fit around my family. The Diploma in Counselling ticked all the right boxes and I signed up. There were of course the doubters who rubbished my ability to complete the qualification, but supported by my husband and my daughters who gave the love that young children do to boost your morale and strengthen your reserve, I achieved my goal.
Over 15 years later I am, a fully qualified, and highly experienced, counsellor, FRSA ILM Corporate Athlete Cert. in Coaching, trainer and personal development consultant. More recently I have been on retreat at a Benedictine Monastery considering the topic of Spirituality and Leadership.
Over the past 15 years I have helped more than 3,000 people to change their lives. Whether working with individuals or small groups in private and corporate settings, the goal is the same – to help people cope with the inevitable changes that life throws at us and help those people to move onto something better if not necessarily bigger!
It still amazes me now how fortunate I have been to have such an impact on so many people. If you had told me 15 years ago that I’d be here now, I would certainly have thought you were pulling my leg.
But here I am and I wouldn’t change a thing – other than maybe having had someone to guide me and help me smooth out some of the ups and downs in my working life.
