The Allegory Practice

Guiding you towards self-empowerment

The Allegory Practice was founded by Aniqa Ahmed in 2024. The term allegory means a story or picture that has a hidden meaning behind it- typically a moral one.  Here at The Allegory Practice we provide an allegorical space for individuals to share their lived experiences. An allegorical space contains the allegories shared.

Our values are:

-To listen
-To validate
-To empathise
-To empower

unleash the power of your story and find alternative meaning at the allegory practice
