About me

Hi I'm Alison and I'm a fully qualified person centred counsellor and a registered member of the BACP.

Everybody deserves time for themselves and to feel valued and heard. I offer a calm and safe place for you to explore your feelings at a pace you are comfortable with. During our sessions you are in control and I am there to support you on your journey of self discovery in a friendly and warm manner. I can offer a trusting,  non judgement relationship where you will feel comfortable to share.

I am passionate about young people and have experience of counselling in a college and working with this age group. 

I provide telephone and online sessions during the day and offer a free 20 minute consultation to see if I am the right therapist for you. Message or call to see if my style of therapy works for you.

Member organisations


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.
