Alison is fantastic, she has opened my eyes to the reality of what I have gone through throughout my life and how that has impacted me now, whilst providing healthy ways forward but always encourages me first to see if I can figure those things out myself, with her guidance of course. She's been accommodating, brilliantly helpful, understanding and is just overall wonderful. I couldn't recommend her enough and feel truly lucky to have her guidance.

She has done a great deal to help me understand my ADHD diagnosis and just, the way my brain works. Gaining that greater understanding of myself has been fantastic.
