Allan's SMILE philosophy encompasses everything from Homer (of Odyssey fame) to Homer Simpson. He believes that if one person is capable of achieving something. Regardless of age, gender or circumstances, given time, support and the right guidance, anybody is. His work with both groups and individuals reflect this philosophy.
Drawing on his vast experience of working with people from all walks of life. He uses an holistic approach, combined with tested theories, life enhancing practical tools - and the unique SMILE ingredient to inspire you to be the best version of you, you can possibly be.
Whether the work is tailored to the individuals needs, as in One2One Counselling, or the goals of a group, he shows that personal growth is not gained by comparison to others. There will always be someone who is better or worse off than ourselves. Growth is obtained by maximising our own qualities. A bamboo tree doesn't wish it was an oak. The oak may appear stronger but in the teeth of a storm, the bamboos flexibility is more likely to survive than the rigidity of the sturdy oak.
Allan shows you how to identify and unmask your own unique qualities, how to build a firm foundation you can build on; and how, by using a step by step approach, you can maximise them to improve your quality of life.
