Hi! I’m Alison

Psychotherapeutic Counsellor MNCS Accredited

I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist working from my own therapy room in Basingstoke, Hants. I am experienced in counselling adults and young people with a range of challenges including:

Anxiety, Panic & Phobias, stress, depression, low self-esteem & confidence issues, addiction, anger, bereavement and relationship issues.

I work from home in Black Dam, RG21 and 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.

The sessions are confidential, so you can talk about things you might not feel comfortable discussing with anyone else and the aim is to help you find better ways to cope, or to bring about changes in the way you think and behave that will improve your mental and emotional well-being. I aim at building a strong and respectful relationship with my clients, in a comfortable and safe place, without fear of being judged.

“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….”
