Alison Smith Dip Couns Reg mBACP
My name is Alison Smith. I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. I believe counselling is about providing a safe, confidential place where you can feel free to talk openly and be heard. I aim to provide support, warmth, understanding and compassion within my counselling service to encourage personal growth.
I have worked within an emergency service setting and have experience working with trauma, work related stress, emotional conflict, sexual abuse, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, illness and many other concerns.
I believe it is important for clients to work at their own pace so offer long term and short term therapy. Counselling can be difficult and painful but it can also be rewarding and life-enhancing.
If you feel I might be the right counsellor for you then please contact me either by email or telephone.
