Dr Alice Davidson

Counselling Psychologist

I am a BACP registered counsellor with 15 years of experience helping people find their way, their joy and their freedom from painful past experiences.

My aim for our therapy sessions, in the safe space I will create for you, is to raise your self-awareness, increasing your understanding of yourself and your processes to identify where behaviour was learnt, how it impacts you now and how to let go of the narratives that no longer serve you. By telling me your story, I can offer a new perspective on issues and events that have and continue to impact you, offering tools to ground and anchor you and learn skills and strategies to embed your new way of being, enabling you to meet the world as your authentic self on your terms whilst managing its impact on you and breaking negative cycles. I will do this by pulling from a wide range of training, skill sets, creativity and personal experience, which allows me to tailor support to your needs.

My initial training was in the psychodynamic approach, I then studied GestaltĀ for many years and have since undertaken continued professional development, integrating many other theoretical perspectives into my practice, including CBT and somatic therapy. I am currently exploring psychedelic-assisted therapy.

Whether your issues are linked to anxiety, depression, childhood trauma, self-harm, race, abuse, anger, addiction, discrimination, disability, neurodivergence, work-related issues, low self-esteem or bereavement and grief, you can feel safe to explore all aspects of yourself with me holistically. I will create a non-judgmental safe space for you to bring your whole self into.

In addition to my therapeutic career, I have worked in the social justice sector for over 4 years and thoroughly understand the connection between personal well-being and the broader systems we are a part of. Being neurodivergent, I understand that we all have unique ways of connecting and communicating with each other and the world. I actively strive to improve my awareness and education around intersectional topics, including disability, racism and discrimination, developing an understanding of how it plays out in society and impacts us.

I strongly believe in the power of humour as a tool to help us when things are dark; a well-placed laugh can shine a light into the deepest of glooms and give us hope when we need it most.

I welcome people from all walks of life, all cultures, all belief systems, all genders and those from the LGBTQIA+ community.

In summary, these are the issues I can offer help with:
