About me

I am an accredited CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist – see link for more information on CBT) with 20 years’ experience working in mental health, 12 of these within the NHS.

I have extensive experience of working with a range of problems and disorders, and have a special interest in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Although CBT is my main therapeutic approach in exploring difficult, and often painful, emotions and experiences, I also work in an integrative way to meet clients’ needs. I use elements of systemic and interpersonal therapeutic approaches to help you achieve an increased self-awareness and understanding.

I am based in Cumbria and provide therapy at my garden room in Wigton which is easily accessed from Carlisle, Penrith and West Cumbria. (Please see attached photos of the therapy room). Usually I see clients face to face but because of Covid-19 I am exclusively providing sessions remotely either by Zoom, Skype or telephone.

My clients can either self-refer or are referred through agencies. I am a registered provider of CBT therapy with occupational health and insurance agencies such as CBT Clinics, Validium, Moving Minds, Psycholegal, etc. and private health insurers BUPA, AVIVA and AXA. .

If you have any further queries or you feel CBT might help and you would like an appointment, then please contact me.

Testimonials

Fiona – Sept. 2020

Alison has taught me to accept and live with my anxiety and OCD in such a way that it is no longer in control – I am. Our sessions have allowed me too embrace and love myself, to let go of painful experiences and emotions and to develop strategies and coping mechanisms for those challenging times in life that once dominated and controlled my days. Alison has encouraged in me a steely determination to evolve, and acceptance to push my boundaries, to challenge my ingrained thoughts and behaviours and a diversion from a path that I know I couldn’t keep walking for the rest of my life. I would recommend anyone to undertake CBT – it truly has been life-changing and I now find myself marvelling at how far I’ve come and despite challenging days that are inevitable, I feel healthy in mind and stronger than I’ve felt in a long time

Brian – Sept. 2020

I was suffering from an “unknown” illness and after many medical examinations and tests it remained undiagnosed. Luckily I found Alison’s website and after a telephone assessment session, Alison identified acute anxiety and started to treat my illness immediately. I am now able to manage my condition thanks to Alison’s therapy. I would highly recommend Alison as a very professional therapist.
