Allison is currently taking new clients
Allison has a holistic and integrative approach to her work with clients, holding the belief that the opportunity for healing is co-created within the relational container, or the connection made within the therapeutic space. Connection heals!
She works experientially bringing mindfulness based techniques that help you to contact what is there for you to attend to in the present moment. The client is invited to feel into the space between thoughts to receive regenerative energy and listen to a deeper wisdom not yet available via the intellect.
“I see my role as your companion, travelling alongside you as you go within to befriend and attend to what it is you are experiencing. This is the ultimate in self-care and the route to accessing your inner guidance system and authenticity. Clients report a calming effect on their whole body, ease in their breathing, clear thinking and a sense of safety inside themselves.” Allison Ross
A calm and supportive environment is provided for you to lovingly give attention to difficult emotions that have been stuck; your inner child; old wounds; and unhelpful beliefs about yourself. This helps to create a sense that it is possible to experience clarity, insights and new meaning for your life.
There is no need for you to apply force or discipline in order to achieve a successful outcome, rather gentleness, compassion, patience and empathy. This is modeled for you in the therapeutic relationship so that you can heal and strengthen the relationship you have with yourself.
“The soul has something to say. Your Being has something to say. So much of what is called anxiety and depression is a soul screaming for attention.” Alison Crosthwait, Psychotherapist.

“Come sit down beside me
I said to myself,
And although it didn’t make sense,
I held my own hand
As a small sign of trust
And together I sat on the fence.”
