Hello, My name is Alison. A little bit about me: I grew up between the UK and The Americas North and South. I have worked in Hospitality, Media and as an English Teacher in Asia and now for many years as a counsellor. The key skills for all of those jobs are listening and being with people where they ARE. Are you where you want to be?

The Gestalt Approach is a talk therapy with particular principles. Such as "here and now focus". Whether you go back to the past or look to the future we focus on how this connects to the NOW for you. And "naming the obvious". This can be patterns, narratives, connections and associations that you may or may not be aware of. It is through creativity, expression and awareness that we can discover what we want or need. The first session is getting a sense of how we might work together. I will listen and ask supporting and guiding questions. Once we have established trust I will suggest creative methods when I think it would help in the moment. Such as art, play, writing, the voice, movement and body sensations. People see counsellors for different reasons. My focus is to help those who talk and release some of the unbearable (trauma and or beliefs) in a supported and guided way. Sadness and Anger tend to bring people to therapy but it is to be worked with and understood why it's having an impact or control in your life right now and what you want to be about it. Transform it.
