Alison Brown

Primary Location

People seek counselling for many different reasons. You may be facing a crisis such as a relationship problems, bereavement or other major life change or you may be feeling anxious and lonely. You could be depressed and not really know why or maybe you are having trouble coping with a past experience.

Making a positive difference to the lives of others is important to me. I am caring and compassionate and provide a safe, non-judgemental space to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you may gain increased awareness, explore your options and find new ways to cope.

I am an experienced, qualified and accredited Integrative Counsellor, Psychotherapist and clinical Hypnotherapist and work in private practice from rooms located in my home close to Bishops Stortford, Great Dunmow and Stansted Airport. I am a member of the National Counselling Society and BACP and work as a therapist for Anxiety UK, specialising in helping individuals with anxiety disorders.
Counselling sessions will last for 60 minutes.  Weekly sessions are recommended but this can be flexible and adapted to meet your needs.  You may require just a few sessions for help to support you with a specific issue or longer term therapy to explore deep-underlying issues, helping you to accept and deal with the past and the present.
Average charges are £40 for individuals. Some concessions may apply.
I work with adults and teenagers aged 14+.

Thanks for reading my profile and I wish you all the best.
