Meet Alison

Dr Alison Hill- BACP Accredited

Hello, my name is Alison, I am a qualified counsellor and an accredited member of BACP and I adhere to their code of ethics. Time For You counselling can offer short or long term therapy in the form of face to face counselling. I can also offer telephone or zoom counselling if you are unable for any reason to attend sessions. I am married with 5 children and 7 grandchildren currently! My husband and I were emergency and short-term foster carers for several years having 7 different foster children in our home which was a humbling and very rewarding experience. This experience opened my eyes to the many challenges that our young people and children come up against in today’s world.

I have worked in both a voluntary and paid capacity for a variety of organisations such as Praxis Mental Health, Samaritans, Crossroads Young Carers, Nexus Institute and most recently as a Co-Director of Counselling 4 Youth from 2002-2019. I have worked in schools counselling since 2002 providing support to young people within the 11-19 age range and I currently work alongside adults in a private capacity. I have always had a heart for people and love nothing more than walking alongside them in life’s journey.

I work with a broad range of issues including:- Addiction, Alcohol Abuse, Anger Management, Anxiety, Aspergers, Bereavement, Career Counselling, Christian Counselling, Chronic Impulsivity, Coping Skills, Couples Counselling, Depression, Divorce, Eating Disorders, Emotional Disturbance, Family Conflict, Grief, Job Loss, Marital and Premarital, Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD), Parenting, Self Esteem, Self-Harming, Sleep or Insomnia, Substance Abuse, Suicidal Ideation, Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder & Weight Issues.

I have specialist training & knowledge in many of the above issues.

My office is situated at Carryduff Road, Temple which is located just a few miles outside Carryduff, Ballynahinch and Saintfield. It is also 7 miles from Lisburn and 8 miles from Belfast. It offers privacy and parking is available.

Please get in touch with me if you would like to make an appointment for counselling.
