Alison Halls MBACP PG Dip Counselling &Psychotherapy
Each of us face times in life when we experience difficulties which can lead us to feel anxious, stuck, or depressed. I offer a confidential, safe space where you can share thoughts and emotions which may otherwise be bottled up. I create a warm and collaborative environment in which you can express yourself without fear of judgement.
I have a gentle yet practical approach which has the ultimate aim of unlocking your own resources to help you achieve your potential and lead a more fulfilling, healthy, and satisfying life.
I have a special interest in mid-life transitions faced by women. These include the challenges and opportunities brought about by changes in family responsibilities such as children leaving home, divorce or the loss of a parent. Together, we can consider ways of coping with anxiety and depression and explore questions about identity and purpose in life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a degree in Psychology and a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. My training as an Integrative Counsellor means I can adapt my approach to suit your own particular needs and preferences.
