Community Counselling Service


Our Team


Alison Cunningham

Integrative Counsellor  & Supervisor  BACP Accred Registered

Hello, My name is Alison.

I'm a part of the Listening Post CIC's team. Thank you for taking the time to look through our website. 

I am a fully qualified counsellor and a registered accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)

I believe everybody is unique and individual, as such a one size fits all approach does not work. I work from an integrative approach, tailored to work with your needs.

This enables you to gain the most out of counselling and achieve what you want to achieve.

I offer a relaxed atmosphere where you will be able to examine your thoughts and feelings without being judged and where I will help you to find your own way at your own pace.

I have experience working with both children and adults, dealing with many different needs and issues.

I am a Integrative counsellor. I believe in respecting a client's autonomy, you bring your own agenda into the sessions. I do not offer advice but I listen without judgement and I am with you along your journey to hopefully finding your own solution to the presenting issues.

I work within the ethical and professional boundaries of the association and feel passionately that clients should have the support and knowledge about Counselling that the BACP provides. I work in a person centered and intergrative way. This means that I will work alongside you in exploring any issues in an non judgemental and open way to help empower you to find solutions that work for you as an unique person. The Listening post advocates for affordable counselling for all and I believe that this is so importand as good mental health is just as important as physical health. Providing community counselling is something i am very proud to be part of as it can be very difficult taking the first step in asking for help and I hope if you need to you are able to approoach us to get the Counselling you need.
