Dr Alison Dart UKCP Registered Psychotherapist
I can provide a safe, confidential space for you to look at what may be causing you distress and explore ways in which you can develop your full potential. I offer private counselling and psychotherapy to individuals in centrally located consulting rooms in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk and Holt, North Norfolk.
I can work with any psychological issue you may wish to explore.
Including the following:

- disaffection and boredom
- habitual worrying
- effects of physical, emotional or sexual abuse

My private consulting rooms are in the town centre of Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. Very close to bus station and parking areas. I also offer sessions in a central location in Holt, North Norfolk.
