About me

My name is Alison Smith, 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 have also worked for a well know charity for several years, working with a diverse range of age groups.

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.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified as a Person Centred Counsellor and registered member of the BACP. I work in a Humanistic Way. I initially worked as a volunteer counsellor within the emergency services for 3 years. I am currently working as a contracted counsellor for MIND.  I also currently work within an occupational health setting.

I continuously undertake courses to assist me in working in an integrative way so that I can bring different ways of working within counselling sessions.  I am currently working towards my accreditation with the BACP.

Most recent courses include:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which involves adaptive thinking. Enabling clients to understand and accept what cannot be changed.

I have also undertaken Counselling for Depression, Emotion Focused Therapy  - which focuses on working at a deeper emotional level to combat anxiety and depression through recognising physiological triggers.
