About me

My name is Alan and a qualified counsellor with a number of years of experience. I believe counselling is a safe area for you to explore what is concerning you and working in a solution focus way help you to make choices that will improve the experience that is called life.


I have helped many clients by listening to their concerns and help them make sense of events and/or relationships that may have impacted on them. I have a wide range of skills to help my clients with coping mechanisms.

In some cases the trauma can be so terrible that even talking can be horrific I can help with this without knowing the trauma.

Seeing a counsellor is in my opinion a difficult and courageous act.

Trusting someone you dont know with details of your life you may not have shared even with your best friend. I understand this and am honoured each time a client contacts me. However if you make that leap I will work my hardest to ensure that leap was the right one.
