About me and my therapy practice

Alison Paice Psychotherapist Reg. MBACP (Accred.)

MSc (Psych); BSc (Hons) Occ. Health; Dip Midwifery; PG Dip Trauma Therapy; PG Adv.Dip CBT(REBT); EMDR Therapist

I am a BACP Accredited Integrative Psychotherapist, working in private practice in Guildford, Surrey. I use a range of therapies, including Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), to work with people who are struggling with psychological difficulties; from severe and complex mental health problems, to those who simply want to understand themselves better. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is a central component of successful therapy, which is why I provide a warm, supportive, non-judgemental space where we will work together to identify your concerns and come to a shared understanding of your difficulties, in order to enable and support change.

I work with individuals, EAPs and Organisations. I have extensive experience in workplace health and wellbeing and currently work as a Consultant Psychotherapist for several Employee Assistance Providers (EAP’s) and Insurance Companies, offering brief intervention therapy.

My post qualification training in Trauma focused CBT & EMDR therapy helps me to provide specialised short term, goal orientated therapy to individuals who have  experienced developmental, situational or complex trauma.

Having previously practiced as a Registered Midwife, I have a special interest in Women’s health. I combine my extensive midwifery experience and trauma training to provide  counselling support to women in the ante-natal and post-natal period and specialise in birth trauma and post-natal depression.

Approach:

I provide an integrated approach to therapy as I believe that no one model of therapy can fit everyone all the time. The foundation for my work approach is Humanistic, which is a Client led model, however, I will also use other methodologies such as Psychodynamic, CBT, EMDR, Mindfulness and Compassion Focused therapy to shape the sessions.

I will work with you to identify unhelpful patterns that might be contributing to your issues and create strategies to cope with them.
