How I help people
Hi. Thanks for clicking on my profile. My job is really quite simple - it's all about helping people.
I have nearly 17 years experience as a general counsellor/psychotherapist/talking therapist helping individuals and couples on a wide variety of issues. I view talking therapy as much, much more than dealing with crises although that is very often why people first come to see me. Therapy has the amazing potential to bring about lasting, transformational change, to allow you to be the person or couple you want to be, to realise your full potential. Here's what some former clients have to say...
'Things can always be seen more clearly when viewed from above. Spending time every week with Allan helped me to climb both a real and a virtual mountain which gave me a clear view and a clarity of thought. I feel empowered to climb a new mountain every day, thanks to my therapy and I do it with deep joy. I am stronger both inside and out and I would never have gotten to this place had I not spent that time with Allan.
His is a safe place where I felt entirely comfortable being honest, never judged and fully supported. It's empowering.'
'I found working with Allan to be of great support to me during a range of challenging times in my life. As these challenging changes occurred (starting a family, new employment etc……) I could often find myself becoming increasingly anxious. The work we did was not about completely removing anxiety from my life but was about making it manageable to a point whereby it did not dictate how I lived my life. The work we did together has allowed me to live life with a greater freedom.
I have perhaps not always been the best person at expressing emotions and I found having a set time set aside just for me to discuss my thoughts and feelings very rewarding. I think I could best describe my sessions with Allan in two ways.
A reset – a chance to discuss what was going on with me and to look at it objectively without being judged. I think Allan once described it as an “oasis in the week” and that saying stuck with me, it was a chance to “slow-down” and force myself to think and understand my feelings.
Planning for improvement - we came up with plans and goals for me to achieve and this ensured I saw results from my work and also helped to improve my mental health.
I would not hesitate to recommend Allan´s services.'
'During the time spent with you I feel that I have developed in to my own person. I had always gone from one disfunctional relationship to another and never stopped to work out who I wanted to be or to appreciate what I have. Now I enjoy my children, enjoy being on my own and am able to fill my time doing purposeful stuff, like theatre, galleries, walks in the park. I feel much more comfortable in asking for what I want and don't try to please other as much, which means I am feeling more satisfied with the things that I do. My self esteem has grown and I now value myself far more than I ever have. I brought a mug the other day which says it all 'life is not about finding yourself, its about creating yourself' and through our sessions I believe we have created a base from which I can continue to grow and evolve. Thank you, I will be forever grateful.'

Supervision & training
I view supervision as so much more than a forum for case management.
