About me

Hello and welcome. My name is Alison and I am a Registered Counsellor, working from my practice located in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

I understand that counselling may feel like a daunting first step towards achieving the change you want in your life, especially when it can be difficult to put into words what you want that change to be. There are times in our lives when we need support from somebody else. This may be due to feelings of panic, anxiety, stress, low mood or experiences of recent or past trauma. Experiencing a life change, such as a loss, a bereavement, personal or family ill health, becoming a parent or work-related stress can also impact on how we cope with day to day life. I provide a friendly, non-judgemental and confidential space, where we can work together to explore the thoughts and feelings that are causing you difficulty at this time. I offer both short- and longer-term counselling, guided by your requirements and offer regular reviews of counselling sessions, to ensure they are meeting your individual needs.

About me

I am a registered counsellor with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, which means I am able to use different models of therapy within my therapeutic approach, including: trauma sensitive, attachment based approaches, psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), Gestalt therapy, mindfulness based approaches and compassion focused therapy.

I have specialised experience in bereavement, loss and pregnancy and birth-related difficulties. As nurse and midwife, I also have over 22 years’ experience of working with parents and with issues that can accompany a diagnosis of physical and inherited ill-health.
