Alison Hunter Therapy
Counselling, Psychotherapy, Coaching in Glasgow Southside & Online

Information

Location and accessibility

I see clients in a quiet, ground floor room in my home in Glasgow's Southside (G41) and also work online. My house is a 2 minutes walk from Pollokshaws Road, 5 minutes from Queens Park and 10 mins from Shawlands. Parking is free outside my house and I am a 10 minute bus ride (38a, 57, 3, 4) from Glasgow city centre. Pollokshields West and Queens Park train stations are 5 mins walk away, where you can catch trains to Glasgow Central, which is two stops, and also to the south of Glasgow.

The room I work in is up one short set of stairs. There is no lift. If this creates an accessibility issue for you, please contact me to discuss alternative arrangements.

When working online, I conduct therapy sessions through Zoom or am happy to talk on the phone, if you prefer. I send a Zoom link to each session the day before we are due to meet. If you are unfamiliar working this way, I am happy to talk you through what to expect in an initial free session.

Fees & frequency

I offer an initial free exploratory session for us to discuss what you're looking for, find out more about therapy and for you to decide whether you'd like to continue working with me. Following this, I charge £60 for a 50 minute session, payable by cash or online bank transfer.

I normally see people for one session a week, although am open to meeting every fortnight. I find that meeting less often reduces the impact and momentum of the work. You’re welcome to discuss the options with me when you get in touch.

A safe and inclusive practice

I am a member of the UKCP, BACP and ICF and abide by their ethical frameworks, striving for a practice that is anti-racist, LGBTQIA+ affirming, feminist and trans inclusive. I work supportively with nonmonogamy and kink, and respectfully with all spiritual and/or religious identities, including those of no religion and those who have suffered spiritual harm.

While I work with individuals, I consider it essential to understand personal suffering in its social context, particularly issues of power, inequality and justice. I welcome conversations about race, gender, sexuality, disability, social class, national origin or any other aspect of identity that affects you.

Privacy and confidentiality

I take your confidentiality seriously and will not disclose what you tell me without your consent, except in rare and specific circumstances to fulfil certain legal duties of care and safeguarding. From time to time, I share anonymised details of my client work with a clinical supervisor, in line with professional best practice. You are welcome to discuss confidentiality with me further.

I store and manage client data in line with GDPR and supply all prospective new clients with details of my privacy policy as a matter of course.

Testimonials

“I approached the counselling process with a certain level of trepidation and anxiety. However Alison was able to be supportive and reassuring, creating a safe environment. The sessions were undertaken at a pace I felt comfortable with and it was clear Alison was able to respond to my individual situation which was multifaceted. I found the process helpful and beneficial.I would be more than comfortable approaching Alison in the future should the need arise.” Anonymous, Glasgow
