Meet Allison

Allison Liu, a brain health coach and expert in helping women to reclaim their mental sharpness and improve their energy and mood, struggled with brain fog and panic attacks in her early 50s. Forgetting what she was saying in the middle of saying it, finding it hard to express herself and feeling increasingly irritable, she felt she was losing her sense of self. Adopting a science-based approach, which she uses with her clients today, she increased her own ‘brain reserve’, improving her memory, mood and relationships. She now coaches women in their 40s and beyond to achieve the same so that they can handle life’s challenges with ease, face the future with confidence, and fully engage in life at work and at home. Her mission: Staying sharp for life.

    As we age there’s so much more that we need to be intentional about if we want to live our best life. I’m grateful that I’m a reader and a puzzle do-er, and I’m hoping my brain health (and my mental health) lasts me through to the end – seeing my dad deteriorate from alcoholism and dementia was a graphic demonstration of what neglect can do to us.

      I found Allison’s interview very interesting Leanne and like you I hope my brain health lasts through to the end. Of course, we can only do what we can but at least we are trying to keep our brains stimulated. x
