Embrace the Future with Alison Halls Counselling Services
How counselling can help
Each of us face times in life when we experience difficulties which can lead us to feel anxious, stuck or depressed. I offer a confidential, safe space where you can share thoughts and emotions which may otherwise be bottled up. I create a warm and collaborative environment in which you can express yourself without fear of judgement.
How I work
A collaborative relationship
A tailored approach
My training as an Integrative Counsellor means that I can tailor our work to suit your preferences. Some people feel that talking about their early life experiences helps them release emotions which prevent them from moving on, whilst others seek practical techniques to help them break a cycle of negative thinking which prevents them from achieving their goals. Together we can work out which approach best suits your needs and personal style.
My approach is gentle yet practical which has the ultimate aim of unlocking your own resources to help you achieve your potential and lead a more fulfilling, healthy and satisfying life. Together we will explore how you have overcome challenges in the past and identify the strengths which are available for you to draw upon. I work in a flexible way allowing for short term or long term work according to your needs.
A special interest
I have a special interest in counselling women during mid-life transitions such as empty-nest syndrome, relationship difficulties, loss of meaning and anxiety. Together we can explore the challenges and opportunities facing you and consider ways of restoring balance and meaning in life.
Learn More About Me
I am a BACP registered Counsellor with a post graduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as a degree in Psychology. I work with clients who have a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression and panic. I work from my comfortable therapy room at home in Theydon Mount which allows privacy and discretion.
I suggest an informal, free telephone consultation before the first session to enable us both to assess how well we might work together. My rates are £55 for each 50 minute session.
