About me and my therapy practice
Allison Claughan, BACP Registered Theraputic Counsellor. MBACP. Basildon SS16.
Hello, my name is Allison and I am a Person Centered Counsellor. I work primarily with adults on a 1:1 basis but also work with young people aged 15 and over. I hold a current DBS certificate which enables me to work independently with students in schools but also in my private practice.
I am a Registered Member of the Bristish Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists. (MBACP) I have been happily married for 25 years, have two teenage children and have had many years experience of working with children & young people in local Secondary Schools. I believe that the combination of my life experience and my professional qualifications and training make me a good counsellor, who is able to listen, empathise and understand.
When life hits hard we sometimes need somewhere to go and someone to talk to who can help us make sense of it all. Person Centered counselling provides you with exactly that. It provides a safe place for you to talk, without fear, judgement or bias. It allows you the time to safely explore issues which you may have not up until this point, felt like looking at and can help you find a positive way of moving forwards.
The core conditions of Person Centered Therapy are: Acceptance, Empathy and Unconditional Respect, regardless of your situation. It is these basic conditions that allow the two of us to build a positive therapeutic relationship, with confidentiality being central to all that it is being shared.
