If you’re suffering from anxiety, depression or stress, if you’re feeling stuck, or if you’re facing a big change in your life, it can help to talk to someone independent and outside of family and friendship groups.
I’m Alison, a psychodynamic counsellor based in Walthamstow Village, E17. I work with individuals on an open-ended or short-term basis.
I am passionate about my work and foster a confidential, collaborative and respectful relationship with my clients in a safe, non-judgemental space away from day to day pressures. Here, we can explore your experiences together to gain a better understanding of who you are and what gives your life meaning and fulfilment.
My standard fee is £70 per session. For more information, or to arrange an initial consultation, give me a call or drop me an email. You can also visit my website: www.E17Counselling.co.uk

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.
