Alison Till - Person Centered Counsellor; Registered Member (MBACP)
I appreciate how big a step it is for anyone to decide to see a counsellor, it is important to choose someone with whom you feel comfortable, in order to help you make the positive changes you want in your life and improve your emotional well-being.
Following the Person Centred Approach to counselling, my aim is to offer a safe, confidential space which is just for you to talk about those things that bother you and whatever has prompted you to seek help.
My counselling story starts when I went for bereavement counselling 15 years after the death of my Dad. I had no idea what to expect. I remember going for my first session at the agency feeling nervous.
Thankfully, my bereavement counsellor turned out to be the right person for me. I felt reassured and as my trust in her developed, I began opening up and expressing my locked away feelings. I realised quite quickly that this was the first time I had ever felt really listened to, I wasn’t being judged, and the therapist was empathic towards my feelings.
My own personal experience of bereavement counselling helped and empowered me so much, that I wanted to be able to help others find ways of coping with their life issues and experiences. I believe it is important to help someone find their answers on whatever difficulty they are facing.
