Alison is an integrative adult psychotherapist and is in the process of obtaining UKCP accreditation. She has many years of experience working with adults and children. Her approach is to work collaboratively to help the client make sense of how they are feeling and building a trusting and supportive therapeutic relationship is at the core of her work as she believes that it is this relationship that helps to facilitate change.
