About me and my therapy practice
My name is Alison, I am a qualified counsellor and I provide individual counselling in North London (Angel Islington EC1V).
I am also a Mental Health First Aider.
It is important to choose a counsellor with whom you feel comfortable, in order to help you make the positive changes you want in your life and improve your emotional well-being.
There are many different reasons for seeing a counsellor. Some reasons can be:
Are you experiencing stress at work?
Are deadlines, or an overwhelming workload causing you feelings of anxiety, lacking in motivation, energy and enthusiasm?
Do you feel criticised by others, or feel you are not ‘good enough’?
Bereavement or Loss
Has a recent loss or bereavement made things seem more difficult to cope with than usual?
Are these feelings of grief stopping you from doing your usual things?
Are you experiencing difficulty getting to, or staying asleep?
Are you putting on a brave face to the world, which is masking your true feelings?
I am an accredited professional of the Foundation for Infant Loss, providing bereavement support to anyone affected by pregnancy loss and the death of a baby.
Are you feeling stuck?
Are there some changes you want to make in your life?
Working Creatively and Therapeutically with Art
I also offer image work in our sessions if that is something of individual interest. There are no expectations of being an artist, the focus of the work is on using art forms to work with issues to enable change and growth on a personal level.
