Alison is an experienced child-centred therapy counsellor with 8 + plus years of experience working with children and adolescents. Alison works therapeutically with children, adolescents and young adults of all ages from 5 years old to 24 years old who face a wide and diverse range of different challenges.

With a background in Psychology and Mental Health. Alison has experience working with a range of issues such as anxiety, low mood, behavioural concerns, abuse, trauma, PTSD, self-esteem, issues relating to sexuality and identity, social isolation, and relationships with peers (including bullying).

Her approach and philosophy ensure that with each individual a trusting, empathic and non-judgmental space is created where I encourage your child to explore and understand themselves so they can enhance and fulfil their own potential. Everyone is treated as being unique and focuses on each individual’s needs to help them to build their self-esteem, confidence and resilience.
