About Me

Are you looking to

Improve your relationships?
Stop anxiety spoiling your life?
Gain confidence in yourself and your abilities?
Develop a strong sense of self?
Feel a sense of well-being and achievement?

Then I can offer you all the help and guidance you need.

I work face-2-face, by Telephone or Online so geography is not a problem.

I help clients mend from past hurts; relationship issues; lack of confidence or loss of focus, concentration and direction and specialise in helping clients stop anxiety spoiling their lives.

I help people resolve emotional matters in a warm, yet rational, deliberate manner.

Specialising in Stress & Anxiety, I am author of the Anxiety Breakthroughs Coaching System available in home-study format and/or with private coaching, and a free introductory Ecourse which you will find here: http://avrilallen.co.uk/anxiety-breakthroughs/

I am experienced with different approaches and will tailor the work to suit you as a person. All my work is under-pinned with my strong conviction that whatever you bring to therapy, with understanding in a safe, accepting environment and the right problem-solving skills, your problems may even turn out to hold your potential.

I am a personal & professional life coach too, helping people reach their potential and design their lives creatively.

I will explain the difference between therapy and coaching if that interests you, and help you decide which is the best approach for you.

Online Therapy is an exciting departure from t face-2-face treatment. Apart from the obvious advantage of accessibility from anywhere, you have the session in text to reflect on later. I took part in an NHS research trial, delivering CBT online to patients referred with depression/anxiety. Successful results were published in The Lancet : Volume 374, Number 9690, 22 August 2009.

In addition to Psychotherapy, Psychosynthesis I am experienced in CBT (cognitive-behavioural therapy) and NLP which are cognitive approaches - exploring how you think affecting the way you feel. CBT is the NHS treatment of choice for many problems including anxiety. If your thought patterns are not useful we explore ways to change them. It’s all about what works!

NLP is commonly used in sports and business and just as useful in your personal life. It can help remove the impact of a nasty memory and teach you the control to create a confident and motivational state instead.

Hypnotherapy is particularly effective to stop smoking, overcome phobias, build confidence, relieve stress and restore a sense of well-being.
