Alison Hunter Therapy - MBACP
07939 954 836
You may well be uncertain right now what it is you're looking for, though know there is something in your life that doesn't feel right and you want to do something about it. As a qualified and experienced therapist, I can offer you time and space to explore some of these thoughts and decide whether counselling is for you. With a free initial phone consultation, you have nothing to lose in taking a first step towards making those differences you want.
I see counselling as working best within the support of a joint relationship and can offer you a non-judgemental and compassionate environment, where you are safe to explore events and feelings from your past and present which are holding you back. Life can be really tough and having the chance to talk through what is going on for you with a qualified therapist, who offers you their full and undivided attention can be a real opportunity to start feeling more alive and in charge of things.
In my private practice in the Southside of Glasgow near Queens Park, I offer both short-term solution focused counselling and more in-depth psychotherapy for adults experiencing a range of emotions affecting their quality of life.

Training, qualifications & experience
Prior to retraining as a counsellor and psychotherapist, I worked for several years in Public Relations, both in the voluntary and commercial sectors. Whist I enjoyed many aspects of this work, I was always keen to establish myself in a career that chimed more with my values and interest in people's emotional wellbeing.
Alongside my work as a counsellor in private practice, I am also in the final stages of advanced psychotherapy training at the prestigious Metanoia Institute in London, working towards an MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy. In addition, I work as a counsellor at an agency in Glasgow and within a primary school in the city. I also undertake regular professional development training and supervision.
