Alison Isaacs Anxiety Counsellor
I am a fully qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist working from my own therapy room in Basingstoke, Hants. I am experienced in counselling adults and young people with a range of challenges including:
Anxiety, Panic & Phobias, stress, depression, low self-esteem & confidence issues, addiction, anger, bereavement and relationship issues.
My aim is to help my clients gain their full potential and realise their goals in a relaxing and comfortable environment.
I offer an environment in which my clients can express their feelings and gain a deeper insight into their difficulties. The sessions are confidential, so you can talk about things you might not feel comfortable discussing with anyone else and the aim is to help you find better ways to cope, or to bring about changes in the way you think and behave that will improve your mental and emotional well-being.
I aim at building a strong and respectful relationship with my clients, in a comfortable and safe place, without fear of being judged.
To get started with your counselling, please call or email me to set up an initial consultation in which we can discuss what you would like to get out of your sessions with me. If you are happy and want to proceed, we can then arrange weekly or fortnightly sessions to suit you.
