Alison Jane Cocksey MBACP
Counselling is for anyone who is experiencing difficulties in their life. The difficulties you are facing may have been around for a long time or they may be related to what is happening now and you may be suffering with depression, anxiety or experiencing relationship difficulties. Your sessions will help and support you to find the confidence to move forward.
The feedback that I have received from people I have worked with is that counselling has given them a new perspective, awareness, hope, energy and courage.
I will engage with you and support you in exploring and understanding the issues you bring. My therapy room is comfortable, secure and safe and my work with you will kept in confidence.
Your 1st appointment is for 1 hour. I would want to know about you and what brought you to counselling. It also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions about me and my work, and for us to agree if we would like to work together.
I am a Member of The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy Register of Professionals, which is Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
I am happy to respond to any queries you have via e-mail or phone, (details at the top of this page).
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist with much experience of working with adults and children.
I have a Diploma in Transactional Analysis, which is a unique in-depth theory of personality, development and communication.
I have an Accredited Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People which is a qualification shared with 1% of Counsellors across the UK.
People of all ages find benefit in working creatively to understand and resolve difficult issues or manage the challenges of life. Creative approaches can be a helpful tool, helping you to understand and resolve difficulties you may be experiencing. I have much experience of working this way as well as using the traditional counselling approach of 'Talking Therapy'.
I have worked in Private Practice since 2010 and have my own therapy room in Ulverston, Cumbria.
I also work therapeutically with clients in Kendal and Lancaster who are referred to me through a local charity who specialise in supporting people who have experienced rape or sexual abuse.
Since 2011 I have worked as a counsellor in a South Lakes secondary school.
