GET TO KNOW ME
Hi, I’m Alison and I am a fully qualified counsellor/psychotherapist and accredited member of National Counselling Society (NCS).
I'm an integrative therapist which simply means that I've had training on the broad range of therapeutic models (including psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, humanistic, CBT etc) and can therefore use the appropriate tools and techniques to help and support you with your specific issue(s). However, my core approach is Person Centred which just means that your needs are placed at the centre of the counselling relationship and my role is to support you in a warm, supportive and non-judgemental manner as we work together to untangle your issues and develop a more positive future pathway.
