Counselling

Alison

I am an experienced psychotherapist offering Counselling and Trauma Therapy in Bristol. My commitment is to work creatively within a clinical framework, to provide a tailored approach specifically for you.

Within counselling I aim to provide a safe, warm and non-judgmental space. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the core to the work and we will integrate other ways of working too meet your needs. I work individually, offering short term, long term and open ended counselling. We can discuss your needs and set some goals for therapy in the initial session. We can review these throughout the sessions as they might change as you do!

I work from an Integrative Relational approach. If you are looking for a specific therapeutic approach, I can also offer Person Centered Counselling, Rewind Therapy, Single Session Therapy, Transitional Analysis (TA), Gestalt and the Comprehensive Resource Model (CRM) for Trauma. To find out more about Counselling, this post might be helpful.

In addition to independent counselling practice, I have held senior practitioner roles within the NHS, charities and higher education settings. My qualifications include; BSc in Psychology, Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and Higher Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People. I am also an accredited member of the BACP.
