Alliee Reeves BA (Hons) MBACP
Hello and welcome to my psychotherapy / counselling practice.
I recognise the personal challenges involved in taking the first steps towards seeking therapy. I am aware that this can evoke a multitude of difficult feelings additional to those that brought you here in the first instance. I am passionate about the benefits of psychotherapy and counselling and the exploration and understanding of ourselves that this experience provides.
Why choose counselling?
Evidence suggests that engaging in talking therapies helps process our experiences from either the past or present; enabling a deeper understanding of ourselves and freeing us to live our lives in the here and now. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where we can work together to achieve this.
My approach is person-centred / humanistic, which is non-advice giving as I believe that you have the resources within to know how you want your life to be. I recognise and appreciate that you are the expert of your own experiences. Therefore our therapy sessions will be directed by you, focusing on what you feel is important. My role is to facilitate and support you, helping you to understand your experience of the world. Together we will aim to develop your own inner resources to bring about positive change.
