Hi! I’m Alison

Psychotherapeutic Counsellor MNCS Accredited

Is anxiety a problem for you? Would you like to feel calmer, less stressed and sleep better?

Perhaps you want to make positive changes in your life but don’t know where to start, or learn how to say no, be more assertive and kinder to yourself.

Would you like to be able to relax and laugh more?

Do you put yourself down & criticise yourself, struggle to make decisions or feel confused by your feelings and relationships?

Counselling with me can help you. It’s the best self-care ever and can help you gain the confidence you need to feel better about yourself, reduce your stress and anxiety, explore your feelings and understand why you react to things in the way you do.

Hi I’m Alison and I can offer an environment in which you can express your feelings and gain a deeper insight into your difficulties. We will focus on your journey, and not follow a plan set by me. I will listen to what matters to you and try to help you to understand your thoughts and feelings better and make sense of the situation you are in.

I offer short term and open ended counselling for most difficulties but really enjoy working with anxiety, stress, depression and low self-esteem.

Please contact me to arrange a free, no obligation initial consultation

“I had quite a few issues over a period of years, tried tablets, then tried therapy, sadly nothing quite hit the button. After a particularly bad meltdown i decided i had to really sort this problem out, but unsure what to do. so i decided to try therapy once again, best decision i ever made. Alison was fantastic, put me at ease straight away, no pressure to find the problem, just lots of help and advice, and also a few laughs. With her gentle way of things, we soon found the root of my problem, and as i had buried it away for years and never really gave it any thought, it came as a surprise to me to find that really the answer was never far away, but it needed some one as skilled as Alison to help me open up and not be afraid of the past. The future is a lot brighter now, as my thoughts are much more positive about myself. I really can not thank Alison enough for her help and advice in helping me find a way forward, such a talented lady. Thank you so much Alison”


“Anxiety has been a constant reoccurring issue in my life. I found Alison through anxiety UK and was lucky enough that she close distance to me to meet on a regular basis. Not only was she my councillor but she also became a friend, I never felt judged at any time and always left feeling lighter and was given a new perspective on things. Alison approached all issues, that I presented to her with a smile and always made me believe in myself and planted a seed of positivity every time! I highly recommend Alison, I have seen a few therapists but Alison is the only one who I looked forward to seeing and actually actually bothered to see.

I hope she can help you as much as she helped me!”

“From my initial consultation with Alison, she made me feel so at ease, I went with the intention of having hypnotherapy for weightloss but during my 1st couple of consultations I felt myself opening up to her and telling her things about myself no one knew about me and I started having counselling sessions with some hypnotherapy too… to date she has helped me with my anger management problems, my anxiety issues and the counselling for the many other issues I didn’t think I had, but certainly do. I have been going to see Alison for a year now and I have no intention of giving her up I was always a very strong person who always said I can deal with everything and anything, counsellors were a waste of time for me…… how very wrong I was….

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ALISON to everyone, she is an amazing counsellor/hypnotherapist, she is an amazing listenener and very respectful to me as a client … she makes you feel so comfortable that you don’t want your session to end….”
