Alison Westmacott Counselling

Supporting Your Journey

BACP registered counsellor

"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." Carl Jung


Counselling is about change

Life can be many things - this can be the reason why it is sometimes truly incredible. However, there are times when it is challenging, uncomfortable, overwhelming and confusing. Sometimes we need help. It may be to get out of a rut, deal with a loss, manage something unexpected - or we simply don't know, yet feel, deep down, something needs to change.

As your counsellor, I can help you through any difficult times - helping you move forward with your life. I offer a safe, confidential space, where you will be listened to and accepted for who you are. I will not give you advice, judge you or tell you what to do. Instead I will accept your feelings as valid and help you steer your way through them.

I am aware that starting the process of counselling and embarking on the journey of self-awareness can be daunting. Therefore I offer a free 30 minute assessment session. You can then decide if this is the right path for you and whether I am the counsellor to help you. 

Fees: £50.00 (50 minutes)

face-to-face, telephone or online
