Im Ali Smith and my purpose is to empower others to thrive after trauma to build healthy relationships with themselves and others 

As a trauma, polyvagal and narcissism informed coach and therapist I  have the tools to guide you to manage anxiety, process trauma, integrate your experiences and fall in love with life again !

CPTSD, PTSD or anxiety often shows up in the form of unhealthy relational patterns with yourself and others. Self loathing, withdrawing, numbing your feelings with addictive behaviours or codependency may have devastating consequences on your personal and business interaction

Working with me will help you to discover safety and connection , regulate overwhelming emotions, rewire dysfunctional behavioral patterns and reclaim your authentic self

Heres how I help you


There is a much evidence to suggest that trauma gets stored in the body . Any issue involving emotional pain needs to be dealt with at the level of the emotional ( mammalian ) brain, which is where all of our memories are stored and our emotions get processed.

Working with methodologies like EMDR , polyvagal techniques to regulate the nervous system , inner child healing , hypnotherapy , specific NLP techniques and sub modality work is my preferred approach.

In the words of ex soldier and PTSD expert, Martin Webster “Trying to fix an emotional issue at the level of the rational mind  is like opening the boot of your car when the engine breaks down. You are looking in the wrong place. It simply doesn’t work “.

I am equipped to guide you through the process of healing trauma ,transforming shame.

Life doesn’t always gift people with the best start. A traumatic childhood may result in people developing unhealthy coping mechanisms and destructive patterns of behaviour which, if left unresolved, may impact their lives for years to come.
