Alice Stanley ONLINE, MBACP Dip.CPCAB
Hello and welcome here. I am pretty sure that if we talk, we can change things for better for you, no matter in which situation or stage of life you are right now. You might be finding things overwhelming, you might feel like unable to move on and just have a general sense of not being happy, or you can feel anxious, stuck, or maybe lack confidence, have a low self-esteem and you would like to improve, change that. I totally trust talking therapy can change that as it has proven to be so effective to change many people’s lives for better and of great benefit to many of my clients, and to myself, to include my own experience as well.
About me and my therapy practice
I will help you explore your feelings and emotions and support you in getting to the root of the problem and finding your own solutions; sometimes it can be a case of looking at something from a different perspective.
My counselling sessions can help you with e.g. the following (although there is so much more):
- Greater sense of self-worth and self-awareness
- Increased confidence and self-esteem
- Feeling calmer and more relaxed
- Better communication skills
- More intimate and satisfying relationships
- Develop healthier patterns of relating to others
I am fully insured, have ongoing clinical supervision and regularly attend courses and further training to enhance my knowledge and professionalism with Continued Professional Development (CPD).
My style is very personal, every counselling therapy is tailored according to the needs of the client. I work mainly with person-centred approach in a warm, safe, confidential and non-judgemental manner but when I find it helpful, I use tools from other modalities of counselling. Whatever you want to bring to the session and whatever pace you want to go, I will honour that, although if I feel you are ready, I can help with a supportive challenge as well.
I work mainly with the adults but I worked with children as well and have an experience with working at primary and secondary schools.
Clients I work with
Adults, Young people, Older adults, Children
How I deliver therapy
Long-term or short-term online counselling (via Zoom, WhatsApp or Skype), Telephone counselling, and could possibly agree on some limited, irregular face-to-face sessions if wanted.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
