Counselling psychologist is a role that was perfectly aligned for Alison, who discovered counselling as a vocation after spending over a decade in money advice. Studying alongside working within the third sector, Alison completed her Post-Graduate Certificate in Psychology via the Open University and Doctorate of Counselling Psychology via Glasgow Caledonian University in 2018.
Alison’s career has spanned private to public to third sector, working within many partnership organisations. This career offered the opportunity to work with a range of groups including individuals and families in North Lanarkshire and Glasgow. Alison has an interest in living well, which includes living well with illness. Alison was one of the first cohort to graduate from Stirling University’s pioneering graduate qualifications in Welfare Benefits for People with Long Term Conditions.
With extensive experience in training and facilitating group learning, across a range of topics from recovery to managing stress or anger, Alison is delighted to be representing Epione in the delivery of a trauma-informed Scotland.
