You cannot work on your stress management skills and mental well being without time, effort and practice.

Forget one hour training sessions that tell you what you "should" be doing to feel like a better version of yourself. It's not ENOUGH to really make a difference in your day to day life.

As part of The Energy Answer program, we take a different approach to preventing burnout and improving your well being.

This 3 month hybrid program (self-paced online classroom modules + live virtual calls/workshops) gives you time to:

1. Make a personalized plan,

2. Work on implementing solutions that work for YOU and your life,

3. Troubleshoot when things aren't working well for you and

4. Create new habits around your own well being.

Are you ready to feel like a better version of you?

Hi, I'm Alison

I am an advocate for managing your stress, preventing burnout in your work and personal life and being the best version of yourself.

For the past 15 years I have been training and speaking to audiences large and small, virtually and in person and I am a certified Mental Health First Aid (Basic/Standard) trainer through the Mental Health Commission of Canada teaching virtually and in person.

​ In 2017, I started experiencing physical health symptoms that I didn't understand and spent months visiting a variety of Doctors and medical professionals. Eventually I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety.

​ In my daily life, not much appeared to change on the outside. I continued to work full-time, raise a family and run a business. However, taking a closer look at my own mental health has had a profoundly positive impact on my own life.

I started doing the deeper work to make real change in my life around the things that were causing me to respond with stress and overwhelm. I figured out that this is a very personal journey, not a "one size fits all" strategy.

I also learned that it takes time, effort, practice and commitment to make changes in our life and it is absolutely possible and absolutely worth it. ​

Onboarding

Setting you up for success

Before you start The Energy Answer program we will:

Month 1

Setting The Foundation For Success

This month in The Energy Answer online modules you will review your current level of perceived stress (create a baseline) and consider your own self-awareness. This is key as we explore your personal stressors.

Then, you will map out your own personalized well being plan. This is strategic and unique to you. A key part of overall stress management is having a solid plan in place for things that bring you joy and relaxation. Most of us don't spend enough time thinking about this or planning our well being into our weeks. We are taking a deep-dive into figuring out what's going to work for YOU in your work and personal life.

You will:

1. Identify your personal well being goals and barriers.

2. Learn to prioritize and place value on your personal well being while leading a busy and demanding life.

3. Learn to overcome common barriers and blocks that get in out way of well being success.

LIVE Call

Each month we have a 1-2 hour live call/workshop where we dive deeper into challenges and roadblocks you may be facing in mapping out your personalized well being plan. We'll also talk about working through common barriers to success like our mindset, activities that suck away our time like phones/social media and how to keep working on our well being when things feel tough or when we feel stuck.

Feedback from Energy Answer Participants

Fantastic Experience

Preventing Burnout

"The Energy Answer program breaks down the overwhelming into enjoyable pieces. If you want to be successful with stress management and burnout prevention I recommend the sections on setting boundaries and developing a self care plan that supports your unique needs".

I have a plan now!

"Before the Energy Answer, I never actually put meaningful thought into what I need to do for setting boundaries or how I cope with stress. Now I have a plan for focusing on the most essential parts of my day and taking the time to enjoy them".
