About me

Hello I'm Alison.  Are you looking for a safe space where you can share your thoughts and feelings without feeling judged?  Do you feel anxious or overwhelmed but not sure where to turn to for support?  Are you feeling depressed and need someone to listen to you who is calm and empathetic?  Are you feeling sad about life at the moment and need to make sense of your goals and where your life is going?  Counselling can help you to focus on what matters to you and help you to understand yourself so that you can work towards having a more fulfilling life.

Member organisations


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.
