Alice Walker BSc, AdDip, MNCS (Accred)
What I offer:
I am an experienced Integrative Counsellor which means that I am trained to tailor my approach to each individual client. I have different tools to work with for instance I may help you to identify unhealthy beliefs and ideas and work at changing them to healthy ones. Sometimes simple changes can be the most impactful.
Who do I work with:
I work with clients with a range of issues; generally these issues are causing anxiety and sadness in their lives and holding them back from things they would like to do, relationships they would like to have, or from being the person they would like to be.
Why Counselling can help:
Life is a journey and sometimes we all need some support in getting on the right track or in dealing with the ‘bumps in the road’ that life throws at us. We often do not realise that we are in unhealthy cycles. I can help you to see what it is that you really want to change and what is holding you back and support you in going in the right direction.
It is so important to look after your mental wellbeing. Suffering in silence or ignoring your struggles only prolongs them. Let’s look a what is happening together and find a way to move forward.
What to expect from the first appointment:
Each session will last for around 50 minutes. The first appointment will be an assessment session - this will enable me to gain an understanding of why you have sought counselling and what you would like to change. I will assess if I can help you and you will be able to see if you are comfortable working with me.
Each session after this will generally be lead by what you feel you need to talk about at that time, with your goal of therapy ultimately in mind.

“Having seen various counsellors over the years, I can honestly say that Alice was the most empathic, understanding and highly able counsellor I've seen. I feel I progressed really well and have taken away some good tools from our sessions“.
