I am a qualified person-centred counsellor (MBACP), with extensive experience working with secondary age children and adults, supporting issues such as panic disorders, anxiety, depression, OCD, eating disorders, domestic abuse, self-esteem and identity. I split my time between private counselling and student welfare at UCL.
As a person-centred counsellor, my work is non-directive (the client is in control of where the therapy goes and to what depth), warm, open and most definitely non-judgemental. This is your safe space to talk and explore thoughts, feelings and decisions.
I believe that it is the compatibility and strength of the relationship that determines whether therapy will be a positive and useful experience. As such, I offer an initial, free, 30-minute, online session. I hope this gives you a sense of whether you feel comfortable talking to me and my person-centred approach.
I am currently available on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Chalfont Wellness: 5.30pm to 9.30pm (Tue) and 6.45pm to 9pm (Thurs). You can also book online/phone counselling by appointment.
Get in contact with Alison on 07753 621113.

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).
