Hello, my name is Allison. I believe that counselling helps us work through life's difficult times. If you are here looking for help, I would like to work with you. I offer short term and long term therapy.
I am a qualified counsellor and group therapist. I have worked as a counsellor for a number of years and have experience in helping people work through life issues.
I have worked in addictions services, supporting adults, young people, and families. The areas I cover include anxiety, depression, stress, panic, trauma, bereavement, and anger management. I have worked in the NHS supporting clients through difficult and traumatic events including anxiety depression, panic and stress.
I believe that counselling is a therapy that can help work through life issues and give understanding and insight to help you in your life. I offer a space where you can work though difficult issues in a non-judgemental, safe and confidential environment.
I offer a safe space to for you to explore the issues that have brought you to counselling.
I am a member of the BACP and as such adhere to their ethical framework.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in counselling
Certificate in groupwork
My diploma in counselling is humanistic which means that the client is at the centre of their therapy, being respected, listened to and acknowledging the feelings and emotions that the client is experiencing in the counselling room.
