About me and my therapy practice

Welcome, I’m Alison. Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Supervisor for people aged 8-108.

I am currently meeting with people:

- online using WhatsApp, Skype, Zoom or Cliniko (voice, text or video, whatever you are most comfortable with).

- in nature for walk and talk therapy - social distancing applies with risk assessment.

I’m glad you are here. Counselling changed the course of my life and has done so for many others too. It takes courage to ask for support and I will do all I can to make your experience comfortable and beneficial.

I specialise in helping people to believe in themselves, feel more resilient and able to cope and to build healthier relationships.

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

· have a safe and accepting place to share your story

· have mental clarity

· feel more confident

· be more comfortable in your relationships

· achieve your personal goals

. talk about difficult experiences

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.

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.

Hello! If you are looking for a warm, experienced and empowering supervisor then you've come to the right page. I am a Person-Centred trained Counsellor and Psychotherapist and enjoy working with supervisees to explore and process their client work.

I welcome Counsellors, Psychotherapists, and trainees. I offer supervision to anyone working in a therapeutic role requiring time for reflection in order to be an ethical and effective practitioner. The elements I support supervisees with are safeguarding, ethical practice, and exploration of all aspects of the therapeutic process.
