Hello, I am Alison Awuku and I work as an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, using predominantly Psychodynamic, Person-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solutions Focused approaches in my work. This means that I work with my clients on the basis of what they bring to each session. Central to my way of working is building a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship, ensuring that my clients feel safe and comfortable to talk in confidence about their issues, concerns, and plans without fear of being judged.
Each person is unique and I acknowledge the uniqueness of my clients by tailoring my counselling approach to the specific needs of the individual client. I work with clients from the ages of 11 to much older clients and with male and female clients.
I also work with couples who are suitable for couple therapy.
I can provide sessions remotely via Skype or Zoom; alternatively, I provide face-to-face sessions in the centre of Reading.

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.
