Public Engagements

Relationships and Trust 

Throughout my career spanning over 20 years, I have given workshops, seminars and talks to a wide variety of groups including corporate businesses, schools, support groups, coaches, therapists and other professionals in the caring fields.

As I share my insights and skills, I am always refreshed by the curiosity and engaging participation of the audiences. I believe in making the art of living more down to earth, with practical guidance that gives people real opportunities to create change, in their personal and/or professional lives.
I love to inspire, motivate and at times challenge people to realise they have so much more choice in their lives than they realise and I continue to encourage others to begin the process of change with self-compassion, understanding and humour.
Some of the organisations I have worked with are :
  • IACP (Irish Association for Counsellors & Psychotherapists),
  • NUIG (National University of Ireland, Galway)
  • Aephoria (South Africa),
  • IAHIP (Irish Association for Humanistic & Integrative Psychotherapists),
  • Galway County Council
  • and many more.
Some of the events I have delivered include :
  • Developing Self Awareness and Inner Stillness
  • Creating Positive Life Changes
  • Introduction to Existentialism
Usually, I design each event to cater for what is needed and requested by the audience. If you would like me to speak at an event, please reach out. You can contact me here.

Freedom, Limitations and Actualising our Potential

Feedback comments from IAHIP workshop on June 18, 2022

I found this training very insightful and thought provoking and the trainers knowledge and passion inspiring.
Really great to be able to engage in the discussion. Great event. Big Thank You to Allison and IAHIP.
I found the workshop very interesting and informative. Alison was very engaging and welcomed comments and different points of view. It was very worth while and very beneficial for my work with clients in the future. Also great to have the workshop in the west. 
A very informative day. Presentation was lively, engaging, soulful, respectful. The input was not just talking to us but a lived experience in the room. Thank you.
A beautiful day, excellently facilitated, Mary and Rodolpho were on hand to manage everything and it was a lovely experience from start to finish.
Alison was superb! Whole event very worthwhile. 
Very much enjoyed this day and got a lot from it.
Allison is an excellent presenter and she held our attention throughout the whole day. I would highly recommend her for any future IAHIP events. I didn't hear one negative comment from other attendees which is very rare at workshops. She exudes a lovely blend of professionalism and humanness. Exceptional !!

Feedback for Existential Psychotherapy Workshop (24/04/21) IACP ONLINE

Allison Joyner was excellent! Her presentation was so engaging. No slides, she just shared what she has come to know. I learned so much in so little time.                                   
Cannot recommend it enough to anyone thinking of attending!
Without a doubt, the best workshop I have ever attended... blown away .. absolutely inspired.
Very enjoyable workshop. Thank you
My kind of workshop. Simple language, good use examples by presenter. Although there is no doubt the presenter is a major authority on the subject, she didn't come across as a 'guru'.  Very honest and engaging
Alison was superb! Whole event very worthwhile. 
Great workshop, very easy to follow
This was one of the most relevant IACP workshops I have attended
