Do you know there is more to you than the life you
Are you in need of clarity, support and some
Do you ache to live your life as the real you?
Hi, I'm Alison, founder of Path Less
Trodden, and I want to let you know that, if you answered 'yes' to the
questions above, I know how you feel, as I've been there too.
At many points in my life I've felt frustrated and
disconnected, knowing that what was going on around me
wasn't the real me and that I could be and do so much more.
At 20, I weighed over 140 pounds (20 stone). I hated looking at
myself in the mirror, yet I knew deep inside there was a beautiful
vibrant girl aching to get out.
I did all the things I thought would bring me happiness, and in my
mid 20s found myself a married, home-and-BMW owning girl, working for
Microsoft. I had a golden career ahead of me; was going on luxurious
holidays and living in an outwardly-seeming perfect world.
But something was missing; I longer for more. Going
into the air-conditioned, corporate world made me feel dead. There
were so many things I was passionate about, if only I could do
Illness followed and I hit rock bottom when a neck injury left me
virtually bed-ridden for 6 months. That shifted my perspective for ever.
Finding the REAL me
I've been on a journey, transforming my life. All of the changes I have made have taken
me closer and closer to the REAL me. A place of peace, connection and
I've lost over half my weight, transforming my body
and health. I now feel the fittest and most beautiful and ever have done, and a world of
healthly, delicious recipes are brought to life in my kitchen.
I ended my marriage and started a creative journey
that saw me teaching in South America and Russia, changing my
relationship with myself forever. I broke out of the corporate
cage and dug deep, traversing several different worlds, until
Path Less Trodden was born and I found work that inspires me,
brings meaning to my life and I know is what I am here to do.
In 2009 I took a big leap and left the UK behind to create
a new life for myself in Italy - despite knowing no one here
and not speaking the language.
It's been one hell of a journey, a true Path Less Trodden, but I
cannot recommend it highly enough!
you ache for more, let me show you how you can get it:

"Before I started working

plan which I would stick to. Since coaching with Alison, I have
developed a plan which is realistic and challenging and have achieved
quite a lot of it: I have a working website, have found practice
clients for my coaching business and have developed plans to live
