Alison Walker MBACP Registered (Accred)
Often, having busy lives means that people do not have the time to listen to each other. Just having a warm, caring person to talk with can make all the difference. My approach is simplistic and my aim is for you to feel comfortable at all times.
I am an integrative therapist which means I use various models according to the individual needs of each client. I work in a person centred way which incorporates the core values of acceptance, empathy and congruence and I hope to provide a safe place in which the client can process and explore their thoughts and feelings.
I work with both adults and young people and deal with the many issues that people experience throughout their lives. These include bereavement, depression , anxiety, eating disorders, addictions and family breakdown.
As a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy I work in an ethical way ensuring confidentiality at all times.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Diploma in therapeutic counselling and a post qualifying Diploma in counselling children and young people. My work involves helping people through the many difficulties they may experience during their lives and as a requirement of the BACP, my professional development is on going. This involves participating in training workshops and seminars and keeping updated on new and innovative concepts.
I have ten years experience of working with both young people and adults and have previously been a school counsellor in a secondary level Academy.
