Alison Woodward (CTA, MSc Psychotherapy, UKCP)
Thinking about accessing counselling yourself or for information to pass onto a family member is the first step to manage anxiety and your wellbeing. Seeking help, outside your circle of family and friends, takes courage. I hope this information I have provided below will enable you to make an informed choice about what support would be useful for you.
I am a qualified relational Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist (CTA) and Clinical Supervisor with experience working both in private practice and within organisations. My counselling practice is based in the Bournemouth area.
I have experience of working with a wide range of difficulties that affect people personally. I focus initially on learning coping strategies for symptoms of anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions/disorders. I then work collaboratively with you to help you achieve what you want to from therapy.
I offer individual, couple and group therapy sessions as well as running workshops for specific groups on managing sporting performance anxiety. I work with organisations to offer supervision, trauma training and to help manage significant people change. I offer concessionary rates in certain circumstances.
If you are interested in meeting with me to discuss your counselling needs further please get in touch, I look forward to hearing from you very soon.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy. I trained at the Metanoia Institute which gives me Certified Transactional Analysis (CTA) status. I am also a qualified Clinical Supervisor and hold a Diploma issued by the Iron Mill College.
My core philosophy and training is in Relational Transactional Analysis but I work in an integrative way with my clients and draw on a number of different theories and interventions to support our work together. I take my lead from you in terms of what you find helpful and prefer to work together to find a way that supports growth and development specifically for you.
In addition to my private practice I work as a therapist and supervisor for a charitable organisation supporting those who have experienced trauma.
I am a fully accredited Psychotherapist registered with UKCP (UK Counselling & Psychotherapy), a full member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), IARTA (International Association of Relational Transactional Analysis) and EATA (European Association of Transactional Analysis). I adhere to the ethical frameworks of all my professional organisations and I hold full professional indemnity insurance.
