My name is Alison Day and I’m an adult and child counsellor am based at CBT and Counselling Maidstone. I am a fully qualified counsellor and member of the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) providing counselling for both adults and children.
I have over nine year’s extensive experience working with individuals and children over the age of eleven. I use an integrative approach – which means I draw from a range of therapeutic approaches to meet your individual needs and goals.
I am a fully qualified ‘Relate’ trained couple counsellor as well as having my own private counselling Maidstone practice. I also have vast experience in working with children in secondary schools, colleges and pupil referral unit; providing counselling and support to help them talk through any difficulties they may be facing, such as anxiety, bullying, self-harm, complex family situations or dealing with challenging emotions.
I consider myself to be warm, approachable and non-judgemental, with a down to earth, practical approach. I provide a safe, confidential setting in order for you talk through any issues you may be facing and help you feel understood and supported at a time in your life when you may need it most. Perhaps you are experiencing anxiety, depression or anger, a lack of confidence, confusion or sadness.
Maybe you would like to gain an understanding of your relationships, past and present, including the relationship you have with yourself. Whatever the problem may be, together we will try to develop strategies to improve your emotional well-being and bring about positive change.
I believe that happiness is not the absence of problems but our ability to deal with them. By working on understanding ourselves and developing self-confidence, we are better equipped to take control of our lives, more able to engage effectively with others and enjoy the life we choose to live.
I subscribe to and work within the UKCP code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework and undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.
I provide help and support for any type of problem such anxiety, depression counselling, child counselling, anger management and relationship problems.
