More about Alison
I specialise in creating a safe and supportive therapeutic space where you can feel listened to, heard and understood.
I see patients on a face to face basis in Harley Street, London W1 and also offer sessions by phone or Skype.
For over 20 years, I have worked privately with individuals and couples on many issues including lack of self-esteem and confidence, depression, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, relationship and family conflict, separation and divorce, bereavement, sexual abuse, critical incident debriefing, stress-related work absenteeism and dissatisfaction, and trauma – both personal and work-related, including ex-military personnel.
I have also worked with junior and senior employees, both face-to-face and on the phone, through their company Employee Assistance Programmes.
These companies have included the following sectors: banking, insurance, law, media, transport, consulting, airlines, education, retail, medical, recruitment, charities and councils.
My professional life started in the corporate world of accountancy and finance, management consultancy and public relations. I believe this experience gives me an insight and understanding into the business and work lives of the individuals and couples I work with.
I qualified in Counselling and Psychotherapy in 1999 from the Centre of Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE), and in 2000 with an MA from De Montfort University. I went on to qualify and work with Relate as a Couples Counsellor, seeing both individuals and couples.
I have Accreditation with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and am a Registered Associate of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
