Thank you for visiting my website.
My name is Maeve Allison, and I am a qualified counsellor and EMDR therapist in Beccles (North Suffolk). I qualified as a counsellor in 2005, and as an EMDR therapist in 2012.
It is a big step to think about coming for counselling, and it is natural if you feel anxious or unsure. It's important to find a counsellor who you like and trust.
I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and I am on the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I have a current CRB check.
My approach is integrative, which means that I bring together a variety of approaches to suit your unique needs. I specialise in working with the effects of trauma, whether from a single incident in your life or from chronic problems or abuse in childhood. I also offer counselling for:
- relationship and sexual issues
- chronic pain and illness
- loss of meaning in life
I believe that many of our current difficulties are rooted in past experiences, and find that EMDR is a powerful therapeutic technique which stimulates the natural healing abilities of the brain and body to resolve distressing memories of the past and develop a more optimistic outlook for the future. Please see my separate page about EMDR for more information.
