Dr Alison Hill


At different times in our lives we go through challenges that can affect how we feel and have a negative impact on us. We all have unique ways of dealing with situations. At these times, many people find it helpful to explore how they are feeling with somebody else. It is important at these times to have a safe space to do this where you will be met with empathy, respect and genuineness as we explore your journey together. I believe that having assistance in navigating the various stages of life can be invaluable. Counselling in a confidential setting can help you to examine the thoughts, emotions and behaviours that may be holding you back.

"The curious paradox is when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change"
Carl Rogers

I am a Person Centred Counsellor and Psychotherapist with 20 years professional experience and I use an integrative approach incorporating Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. It is my hope that you will leave counselling not only with a deeper understanding of yourself but also with a set of your own personal tools to help face challenges that may come your way.

I have worked in various settings, including schools, prisons, voluntary settings and my private practice Time For You Counselling. I believe that each person has the ability to affect change in their life by realising and drawing on personal strengths one discovers while being treated in a supportive, compassionate environment. With compassion and understanding, I work with my clients to help them build on their strengths and attain personal growth.
