CIRENCESTER COUNSELLING. Christine Allan BA Hons (MBACP Accred) UKRC
I am an accredited psychodynamic therapist with over 15 years experience. I work in a peaceful and private setting right in the heart of Cirencester. Alongside my private practice, I have worked for many years in a GP surgery, and on an Employee Welfare Scheme. In addition I have been a Senior Counsellor and tutor within the largest counselling agency in Gloucestershire. I am also a qualified clinical supervisor and offer supervision to both individuals and groups.
In order to be most effective I integrate tools from several counselling disciplines into my psychodynamic practice, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) I also look at the way your past experiences may be influencing you in your present circumstances.
Alongside working with individual adults, I also offer relationship counselling. I am currently completing an Advanced training with the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships.
As an Accredited and Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) I adhere to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions, making counselling a safe, confidential and effective experience for you.
