Hi, I’m Alison, welcome to my site. I provide a therapy and counselling service based in Hinckley, Leicestershire. I specialise in nature therapy; in a woodland setting or country park space working with movement, re-connecting your mind and body, metaphor and your story. The focus of my work being with bereavement, loss, anxiety and self concept (how you view yourself & the relationship you have with yourself).
I want to work with you to support you to overcome life’s challenges in a safe, non-judgmental and accepting space. Life can be full of uncertainty and throw challenges at us which can, at times, leave us feeling lost, overwhelmed or alone. I am here to help you make sense of what is happening for you, the things you are feeling and the emotions you are experiencing to help you gain greater understanding of yourself.
As a qualified therapeutic counsellor acknowledging what is or has happened for you and the impact on you is at the forefront; so I recognise your individuality and work with you to understand you, your situation and what has brought you here. Whatever your reason for considering working together, this could be the first step to gaining clarity, increasing self-compassion and improving your wellbeing.
To do this I offer a range of ways to work together, to best meet your needs which includes Nature Therapy working outdoors at a local country park or woodland, face to face in my counselling room in Hinckley , Leicestershire and Online Therapy through the platform Zoom (available no matter where you are in the U.K.)
There are times when what you are feeling becomes difficult to convey using words so I am able to draw upon other therapeutic approaches such as Natural Mindfulness, Grounding techniques and creative working.
Taking the first step to invest in yourself and access counselling can be really daunting trying to find the right therapist for you so I offer a free 15 minute enquiry either on the phone or by zoom to see how comfortable you feel talking to me. To save you time and energy, you can book this directly from my contact page finding the right date and time for you.
Please take a look around and get in touch if you have any questions,
Thank you, Alison
