About me and my therapy practice

Hi, I'm Alison. I'm a Psychotherapist specialising in anxiety, self-esteem, and trauma.

• Do you often put yourself down and find it hard to show yourself compassion?

• Do you not feel good enough?

• Do you experience anxious and overwhelming feelings, or think the worst is going to happen?

• Have you experienced a significant loss, difficulty, or trauma and you are finding it hard to move on from this?

• Would you like your relationships to feel more fulfilling?

• Would you like to communicate your feelings more assertively?

• Were your emotional needs unmet as a child and you continue to feel this way as an adult?

• Do you feel unheard, unloved, guilty, or ashamed?

Who I work with

I work with adults providing a blend of coaching, counselling, and psychotherapy depending on your aims and goals.

I work with trauma survivors using a blend of Psychotherapy and a process called the Rewind Technique

I also provide family wellbeing services and courses for children and teens.

How can I help you?

I can help you develop a better understanding of yourself and your experience so that you can feel more connected, comfortable, and confident within yourself.

I can help you process and move on from difficult experiences and trauma so that you live a more fulfilling life. It takes courage to ask for support and I will do all I can to make your experience comfortable and beneficial.

Practice description

You are in the right place if you would like to:

  • have a safe and accepting place to share your story
  • have more clarity
  • feel more confident
  • be more comfortable in your relationships
  • achieve your personal goals
  • move on from difficult experiences or trauma

My promise to you:

  • I will accept you and your experiences unconditionally and without judgement.
  • I will be genuine, honest and transparent in the hope that you feel comfortable sharing your experience.
  • I will listen deeply to you, so you know that I hear your experience.

Most of us experience psychological distress as some point in our lives, and I can help.

With the nurturing and therapeutic space that I provide, we can work together through any issues to reach a more manageable place for you.

My first session

Book your initial consultation by following this link https://AlisonCounselling.as.me/Ic20 

Please check your spam/junk folder as sometimes emails try to hide in there :-) 

I offer a free, no obligation, 20 minute appointment to give us both the opportunity to see if we are comfortable working together. In this session you have the opportunity to share your reasons for accessing counselling and ask any questions you may have.

If we decide to work together, before our first session I will send you a contract and client information sheet which I will ask you to read and sign. 

In the first session I will ask some questions which will provide an overview of yourself and your experience so that we know what you might want from counselling.

We will spend time getting to know each other and go from there!
