Alison Knowles was a guest on The Dolor Factor earlier this year and as I followed her, I saw many developments. As we are going into the New Year, I think she is a prime example of what can be achieved in a year, once the work is done – something Iyanla Vanzant and I spoke about recently.

Ali has her own private therapeutic practice in Cambridgeshire where she works with young and old people, helping them to remove limiting beliefs, fears and phobias, and negative emotions. More and more parents began to bring their children to Ali because of her easy and relaxed approach. Ali realised that all of her training was aimed at adults and the language and descriptions were beyond a child’s capacity to fully understand at the required level for change work to take place. This lead to the creation of Ollie and a simplistic use of language and metaphors that children connected with at a powerful level.

Ollie allows children to take an active role in working through their issues and finding positive empowerment helping them to be the best version of themselves that they can be.

Ollie now has a school and Ali joins me to discuss how we can all help our children tell us what’s on their minds.
