People decide to look for therapy for many reasons; stress, anxiety or depression, difficulties in relationships; anything that's stopping them living the life they want. I place importance on helping clients understand the causes, not simply focusing on the symptoms. Ultimately, knowing yourself better is the key to a more fulfilling life, with improved relationships and feeling better within yourself on a day to day basis.

It isn't often, in our everyday lives, that we feel truly heard, understood and accepted without sensing judgement or criticism from others. I deeply acknowledge and understand the loneliness that comes from struggling in silence with life's difficulties. Therapy offers you a calm space to begin to tell your story; permission to pause and reflect on what you have been through, validate your response to trauma and loss and gently navigate the path forward. I will support you on your therapeutic journey, gently empowering you to realise your inner resources and ways of coping and navigating your world so that you feel more in control.

Hi. My name is Alison. I am an adult and children and young person's counsellor. During our counselling sessions I will provide you with a non-judgemental and empathic space where we can work together to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I will offer empathy and be there as a listening ear to help you open up and discuss any issues and worries you wish to talk about. We will work at a suitable pace for you to help to understand and talk through the underlying reasons you may be feeling stuck or struggling in life. We’ll explore the past and present to help you to heal and become more self aware so you can move forward.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. Sometimes we all need someone to talk to, life can become overwhelming, confusing, or distressing for all of us. At difficult times in our lives sometimes talking to friends or family just isn't enough. Do you feel that you'd like to be able to talk freely, without worrying what someone else thinks? Or who they might tell? Or maybe you feel, like you don't want to burden the people closest to you? But you know that talking it through with someone impartial may help you untangle the ball of wool in your head, or clear the fog.

Are you feeling that life could be a bit better, or even a lot better? Either way and for whatever cause, be it big or small, counselling can usually help. Please take time to phone, text or email me and I will get back to you to tell you a little about counselling in general and my service in particular. If you then want to know more, we could arrange to meet. If not, we can leave it at that. However, I do find that clients invariably benefit from the service, even if they come convinced it will not work for them. When you think you have run out of people who will listen to the hard things in your life, I can be there for you.

I work with couples enabling and empowering them to experience renewed passion and connectivity. I also work with individuals using EFT to empowering them to heal themselves. Couples may be searching for love and passion perhaps after empty nest, affairs emotional or physical. At the other end of the scale many young couples who are unsure whether to commit to a particular relationship and want guidance, assurance. They gain tools and insights how to make marriage work better than the models they may have had. Age range of clients is from 18-80 to date and I am passionate about helping singles/couples to move on.

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with experience of working with adults and young people. Often people find themselves experiencing difficulties, wanting to make changes and to feel happier, but can feel stuck or unsure with how or where to start. My role as a therapist is to work alongside you, by offering you support to help you make these changes. We will do this by working through the past and the present to enable us to think about how you would like things to be different. This can lead to a greater understanding of yourself and feeling more in control of your life.

Life is tough for everyone at the moment especially in the aftermath of the pandemic. Everything seems so stressful and difficult and you wonder why you don't seem to cope when everyone else does. You can't make sense of what is happening either with you or your relationship. You may be anxious or fearful for the future and really fed up feeling the way you do and never getting beyond it? Would you like help to understand why you feel this way, to take back control of your thoughts and feelings and your relationships? At the end of therapy you want to feel stronger and more empowered to get on with your life.

It is very human to have psychological difficulties at various points in our lives. Difficult things can happen to us leaving us feeling scared and/ or low/ depressed. Society can also make us feel pressurised to look a certain way and we can feel pretty worthless if don't believe that we conform to these societal expectations. All of these can be both frightening and overwhelming, which makes it so important to have a calm, compassionate and skilful therapist to guide you towards recovery.

When life feels overwhelming we can be surrounded by people yet feel so alone and disconnected from ourselves and the world. We may have lost sense of who we are, be burdened by guilt or shame, find it difficult to regulate our emotions, struggle with relationships or feel labelled, judged, unseen and unheard. Counselling can help. It helps us make sense of our feelings and emotions, gaining sight of what we cannot see or hear. Speaking from experience reaching out can feel daunting especially when we're at our most vulnerable and I acknowledge courage in those that do.

Sometimes life throws us challenges both through past and present experiences, which knock us off our feet and we become engulfed in uncertainty, worry and fear. It could be that we start to doubt ourselves and feel that we are not good enough or we are unable to cope, leading to anxiety and depression. Whatever you are going through, it deserves care, attention and compassion and I believe that you have the inner wisdom to work through these issues as you are the person that knows yourself better than anyone,

Are trauma experiences getting in the way of living a life in line with your goals, beliefs, values, and desires? Does anxiety stop you from doing the things you want to do? Do flashbacks get in the way of functioning at home, work, or school? Have you been diagnosed with a health condition and you’re finding it difficult to adapt? Therapy helps you understand the cause of your symptoms and how to break the cycle. You will learn skills to help you manage these symptoms so that you can achieve other things in your life that are important to you. These might be working, having a family, or simply living trauma-response free.
