Alison Lee BA (hons) MBACP (Accred.)
When we are facing difficult or emotional challenges, talking to an experienced, professional counsellor can really help. Finding the right counsellor for you is important so to help I offer an extended first session of an hour and a half. This gives plenty of time to discuss what you are looking for in a counsellor.
I see clients, both individuals and couples who bring a wide variety of concerns. These include depression, anxiety and relationship issues.
I offer open ended counselling because I believe it takes time for each individual or couple, to be able to express their concerns. Counselling can enable people to explore their relationships, see repeating patterns and understand their feelings better; helping them to face the future with more confidence.

My fees are £50.00 for individuals and £65.00 for couples, per 50 minute, weekly session.
I offer a first session which lasts for approximately 90 minutes. This session costs £60.00( £75.00 for couples)and provides an opportunity for me to assess whether my way of working would be appropriate for each individual. It also gives you plenty of time to ask questions and to consider if you would like to work with me.
Counselling is not right for everyone and so an alternative referral maybe appropriate.
