Allene has a wealth of experience as an Integrative CBT Therapist, someone trained to deliver more than 1 model of psychotherapy. Her experience as a general nurse and midwife gives great depth to her practice. She has worked extensively in areas of individual, couples, children and family therapies, addressing often extremely sensitive issues such as addictions, depression, anxiety, rape and sexual abuse, and in living with personality disorders. Allene's friendly and appropriately humourous manner leads to a strong therapeutic bond and contributes in creating a safe, often fun and encouraging environment for change for her clients. Allene regonises that 'one size' does not necessarily 'fit all'. All clients are individuals and the therapy applied in her sessions can be tailor- made to suit the clients' unique needs.
Allene meets her clients in a discreet private office in the centre of Dumfries, Dumfries & Galloway, UK. Appointment Only.
