This allows you to feel supported to explore feelings and attend to the difficulties you may be experiencing.
Allison offers therapeutic tools that facilitate a ‘working through’ of challenges and connection to your inner wisdom and self-compassion. In turn this creates a deeper understanding of the source of the problem. This therapeutic process empowers you to make choices that are based on self-knowledge and a sense of security within. Times of crisis can then become significant turning points in your healing and self-development, and in learning to live a fuller life on your own terms and on equal terms with important others.
Allison sees her role as that of a companion and witness. She supports you, and also hopes to inspire you, to take small yet very effective steps towards ‘showing up’ for yourself. Allison is committed to providing you with the best in self-care that therapy can offer.
