Counsellor/Psychotherapist in North Leeds

I am an experienced Senior Accredited BACP Counsellor/Psychotherapist who has been providing therapy in Leeds for twenty years. I have worked with adults who:

  • Are having difficulties in their relationships (partner, family, colleagues)
  • Are feeling depressed or anxious
  • Have experienced a loss, bereavement or trauma
  • Are coping with work related stress

    Dealing with any of these things is difficult enough, but when you also consider the impact of Coronavirus it can be highly anxiety making. You may be worrying about elderly members of your family, you may have an underlying health condition and feel vulnerable, you may have been juggling working from home with caring for your children or you might be feeling lonely and cut off from family and friends as a result of current restrictions. With no end in sight at the moment, many people are now feeling fed up or depressed. If you are also dealing with a difficult life event such as a divorce or bereavement, then Coronavirus may seem like the final straw. Whatever you are feeling, it can be helpful to talk to someone about it. I am currently offering people sessions by Zoom or FaceTime, or if you prefer by telephone, during this difficult and unprecedented time.

    Talking to someone who is separate from the rest of your life, and who won't judge you, can help you to make sense of difficult and confusing emotions. It can help you to manage your anxiety so that you can deal with the rest of your life (family, work, uncertainty about the future) more effectively.

    Previous clients have reported that they found the experience of counselling with me helpful.

    'Counselling with Alison has genuinely transformed my life for the better. I always felt relaxed, safe and held in sessions with her, and never patronised, judged or condescended to, which were some of my fears going in. I've developed strategies, self-knowledge and resilience with Alison's help that I know will support me with relationships, work, coping with anxiety and conflict, and even just day-to-day life on an ongoing basis. Finding and committing to counselling with Alison is honestly the best thing that I've ever done for myself.'

    My counselling experience in Yorkshire is broad ranging. As well as seeing clients privately I have worked as a Counsellor for several Employee Assistance Programmes such as WSM Wellbeing, Help EAP, Validium and The Retail Trust. I have also taken counselling referrals from Bliss, the charity which supports the families of premature or sick babies. I have worked in a University Counselling Service, for the mental health charity MIND and have worked with clients who have been referred by their GPs.

    Alongside my private counselling practice in Leeds I offer counselling supervision to other practitioners in Leeds and West Yorkshire.

    My counselling practice has been based in the North East of the city, at The Old Surgery, 4a Green Road, Meanwood, Leeds LS6 4JP, West Yorkshire. Click here for a map. Close to Chapel Allerton and Leeds City Centre, it is easily accessible by bus or car.


    If you have any further questions or you would like to book an initial appointment please call me on 0791 286 1515 or email [email protected] I will get back to you as soon as I can.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
