About Me

If you are feeling emotionally fragile, worried and struggling in this time of uncertainty, you are not alone. I will stand beside you. Together we can rise above it all; with knowledge, wisdom, truth, love and most importantly, compassion.   

Hello, my name is Alison Lovett and I’m passionate about helping people with everyday concerns through to more complex presenting issues. I enjoy working with a Person-Centred approach, as I believe the power lies within the Relationship. I listen deeply and fully and accept people just as they are. My counselling is non-judgmental and highly confidential, (except in circumstances where self harm is threatened or another person is at risk).  

My Positive Psychology awareness aims to understand and promote factors that allows an individual, a couple, a family or a group to thrive; taking the focus away from suffering, weaknesses, problems, disorders and pathology.  My passion is to make the lives of all clients and their families more fulfilling. Positive psychology enables me to build strengths, positive emotions and optimal conditions. 

My Counselling is Holistic in nature as it takes into consideration the whole person; i.e. your emotional, mental, psychological, cultural, religious/spiritual, social and physical well being. 

I have fourteen years experience in Counselling and Holistic therapies. I am a Bach Flower Remedies and Australian Bush Flower Essences practitioner and teacher. As Dr Edward Bach so aptly explained, “Health depends on being in harmony with our souls.” These safe, gentle remedies are now used world-wide by medical and complementary health practitioners as they address emotional factors like depression, anxiety and trauma. They are particularly helpful for people who feel generally tired and unwell; and can be used preventively at times of anxiety and stress. Through raising self-awareness, they can assist us to transform our negative states of mind into the corresponding positive states. They can help develop self-esteem, assertiveness, self-discipline and above all, spontaneity and warmth in our relationships. 

Like many counsellors, I have been experiencing a greater demand for my services during the impact of COVID-19, and the majority of these clients are currently contacting me seeking Relationship Counselling. It is for this reason I have decided to provide my Counselling Services from this Guaranteed Safe and Secure online platform.

If you have any questions at all regarding how my Counselling and Complementary therapies can help you move forward, please don’t hesitate to book a time. Deciding to share your concerns is an act of strength, which in turn will increase your resources, wisdom and sense of equanimity. Together we will work on YOUR chosen goals, hopes and desires. Together we can do this!   

Please remember early support and a preventative approach will increase your coping skills and functioning. Therefore let's begin talking through your emotional, practical and family issues in confidence. Book a time now and begin your journey towards happiness.
