Hello, my name is Alison.

I’m excited to be working with the Wellbeing Therapy Space as a counsellor.

We all encounter difficulties in life and my aim is to support clients to feel resourced to better handle the ups and downs that life sends our way including work stress, relationship issues, grief and loss and other confusing and challenging life circumstances.

Exploring such experiences with a trusted counsellor can help to normalise difficult experiences and dispel the sense of being alone or overwhelmed by life’s challenges.

I offer non-judgemental listening, patience and respect to create an environment of safety and trust. My approach is to adapt to the needs of the client and to assist clients to gain perspective, increase self-awareness and draw meaning from their experiences. I encourage clients to engage with their own strengths, resourcefulness and resilience and to process difficult feelings such as grief, anger, disappointment and confusion. I support clients to connect with what is most important to them through values clarification and to identify their issues, to develop preferred options that align with their values and implement change to better manage their own life.

Previous clients have particularly commented on my ability to support them to find clarity and structure to circumstances they find chaotic and overwhelming.

I draw on a range of therapies including motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy, narrative therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy to support clients to understand and cope with their immediate concerns.

I have a special interest in the prevention of workplace stress and burnout. I am a strong advocate of employee wellbeing and holistic best-practice approaches to employees and employers working together to create safe workplaces. My goal is to assist clients to harness the positive benefits of stress and find solutions to the impacts of work stress.

I have a Masters in Counselling (High Distinction) from the University of Notre Dame, Western Australia. I am registered with the Australian Counselling Association. I am also trained as an executive coach. I have worked in private practices as a counsellor and as a coach and enjoy the diversity of clients this type of work brings.

I stay up to date with the latest developments in counselling theory and practice and implement best practice standards for counselling.

I look forward to meeting you to help you address your concerns.

Develop Your Potential With Coaching:

Coaching focusses less on emotional concerns and more on your strengths, capacities, potential and growth. A coaching conversation fosters self-belief, possibility, energy and motivation. Executive coaching is ideal if you’re part of a change management process at work, if you feel stagnant in your career or lack career direction, if you’re procrastinating about making a change, or you’ve secured promotion and want to demonstrate your potential. Coaching can also be applied to our personal lives. Often our issues don’t require the expertise of a counsellor, but we realise we’re not exactly living a value-focussed life. Life could be better, but we can’t seem to work out what to change and how to go about making the changes. In these situations, coaching offers a process that helps you to first identify your values in career and life, set goals and then develop an action plan to go after what you want. These conversations centre around your desire for change and how best to make those changes.
