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)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
