About me

How I work

I’m Alison Allart, a psychotherapist based in East Sussex.

I’ve studied with The College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and follow the British Association of Counselling and Psychology code of ethical practice and professional protocols.

I approach therapy in a calm, friendly, non-judgmental and realistic way. This approach enables me to build trusting, honest relationships with people and to understand what obstacles are preventing them from reaching their goals.

In Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) I follow a structured model which consists of the following:

  • Assessment – Problem listing, goal setting and understanding of unhealthy belief systems
  • Disputation – Talking through, debating and discussing what we have learned and discovered
  • Integration – Putting into practice what you have learned and believing in it. Becoming your own therapist

Because each individual is unique, I can include many therapeutic philosophies to help our sessions become meaningful:

  • Solution Focused Therapy
  • Assertiveness and Compassion Therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Psychoeducation
