TESTIMONIALS

  • The methodology Alyson uses has provided a safe, non-confrontational avenue for exploring issues in Indigenous communities.

    Students have become very passionate about preserving their culture: the class has pledged to each learn Kalama songs over the holidays, which they plan to teach to the younger female students in order to prevent these ceremonial songs, sung in old Tiwi language, from dying out. This is certainly a strong example of how empowering such a project can be.

  • I have personally witnessed the difference Alyson's programs make to participants' confidence, aspirations and overall wellbeing. It's this type of program that has the potential to bring about lasting change.

    I have worked with many organisations and programs to support disadvantaged youth and I believe Alyson's work to be refreshingly innovative, engaging and effective.

  • A clear, concise and professionally facilitated workshop that was both fun and informative and well structured and well paced.

    Alyson is an accomplished and highly skilled facilitator with a lightness of touch that compliments the depth of the work.
