About me and my therapy practice

Hi. My name is Alison. I provide counselling for adults and children and young people.

During our counselling sessions I will provide you with a non-judgemental and empathic space where we can work together to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I will offer empathy and be there as a listening ear to help you open up and discuss any issues and worries you wish to talk about. We will work at a suitable pace for you, to help to understand and talk through the underlying reasons you may be feeling stuck or struggling in life. We’ll explore the past and present to help you to heal and become more self aware so you can move forward.

Practice description

During my time as a counsellor I have worked for a number of organisations and charities that provide counselling services to both adults and young people. With my adult clients I have provided therapy on issues around domestic abuse, bereavement, loss and separation, anger and anxiety and depression (amongst others).

I currently work as a Children and Young Person's counsellor working peripatetically schools across Merseyside and Liverpool. I work with ages 4-17 and support young people therapeutically who have experienced loss and separation, domestic abuse and bereavement. I also work with children who present with anxiety, worrying, feeling sad, separation anxiety, bullying and other issues. When working with young people I use the integrative method/play therapy to support the therapeutic process by using paints, colouring, drawing, writing, playing games, use of sand tray, amongst others. I believe in the importance of a child always having choice and feeling in control during counselling, which is why I would always ensure the young person was in charge in my counselling space.

Prior to becoming a counsellor, I have worked with children and young people teaching in secondary schools. I have also worked in education welfare, pastoral support and learning facilitating in a local college. I have worked with children and young adults who have learning difficulties, autism and ADHD. I am very passionate about being able to help and support others, and I love that I am still able to do that in my role as a counsellor.

I am qualified to Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I have completed a Bridging Course Certificate for CYP work. I am currently studying the Level 5 Certificate in Counselling Children and Young People (due to complete in July 2022). I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their ethical framework. I hold a current enhanced DBS disclosure and have full insurance to practice.

My first session

During our first contact I would arrange an appropriate time to speak for an initial conversation, to see if we would a good fit to work together.

We would then arrange the first session. At the start of the first session I would explain the key aspects of the contract which includes important information about confidentiality and boundaries, GDPR etc and I would answer any questions you may have. We would then both sign to consent to work together. We would discuss your needs and goals for counselling and what you want to achieve.
