Alison Hagger MBACP, BA (Counselling)
I am a Person Centred Counsellor working from pleasant surroundings in West London. I see all clients as individuals - not people to put into boxes. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their code of best practice known as the Ethical Framework.
I have been seeing clients for many years. They have come for counselling for a range of reasons and from all walks of life. Sometimes they know what is ailing them, sometimes they don't. Talking may help the person to identify their problems and see them in a different light, it may relieve the feelings of depression, anxiety, anger etc.
Counsellors are not there to judge you, but rather to sit with you in a caring environment and endeavour to see your world as you see it.
Because I believe that the relationship between us is so crucial to the work, I offer the initial session on a no cost and no obligation basis.
Training, qualifications & experience

I am currently studying to become a Counselling Supervisor and can offer supervision at a reduced rate.
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.

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).
