About me and my therapy practice
Alison Paice Psychotherapist Reg. MBACP (Accred.)
MSc. (Psych); BSc (Hons) Occ. Health; PGDip. Trauma Therapy; PG Adv. Dip CBT(REBT); Dip Midwifery
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 and Brief Intervention therapy (Solution Focused/Behavioural) helps me provide specialised short term, goal orientated therapy to individuals.
I previously practiced as a Registered Midwife; therefore, I have a special interest in Women’s health, specialising in postnatal counselling and support, Birth Trauma and Post Natal Depression.
What I can help with:
I aim to help people improve their psychological wellbeing, reduce distress, and to make meaningful changes in their lives. I offer both short- and longer-term psychological therapy and can help with a wide range of difficulties including, but not limited to:
Anxiety (panic disorder, phobias, generalised anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, and health anxiety)
Depression, feeling sad, or low in mood
Ante-natal and Post-natal psychological support
Birth Trauma and Post Natal Depression
Trauma, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Work related issues
In addition to offering appointments at my rooms in Guildford, I can also offer face to face online therapy via a secure video link. Please contact me if you would like further details.
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, 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.
