“Working with Alison was clarifying and empowering. She guides the session in a thoughtful way where I felt in control and encouraged to reflect on my problems. She’s non-judgemental and is very caring and supportive. She offers insight and empowers you to make positive life choices. I definitely became very clear of my issues in therapy and was offered clear strategies on how to approach them.”
“I’ve worked with many wonderful therapists but Alison sets herself apart. Beyond her excellent training, her innate qualities - remarkable warmth, compassion and total non-judgment - she puts clients immediately at ease. Her understanding of how artistic expression can aid the process of psychological exploration is rare and so welcome in the field! I have learned much from her and couldn’t recommend her more highly.”
“Alison is incredibly thoughtful and insightful in her therapeutic work as she offers opportunities for creative and artistic expression to promote health and healing. She has an impressive capacity to deeply understand and provide a pathway for improved well being and satisfaction in life. She is someone I consult with frequently and am always the better for it. I have the upmost respect for her endless compassion and highly recommend her.”
Ali is a gem of a human being. She is so committed to her client’s well-being and will make you feel instantly at ease. Her expertise in art therapy is unique and is a wonderful asset to the way in which she works with people. No matter the context~individual work, family work, couple’s work or group work, she is able to personalize your treatment with compassion and warmth. I feel lucky to know her.
