Welcome to The Green Rooms. We have provided Counselling, Psychotherapy, Art Psychotherapy and Coaching to individuals, couples, families and groups of people since 2005. This includes adults and teenagers.
My name is Alison Barr and I am the Director of The Green Rooms. My practitioners and I will offer you a high quality, value for money service.
As I employ practitioners on a sessional basis, the day and time of your appointment can be flexible. You can also request that your Counsellor, Psychotherapist or Coach be female or male, or work with a particular therapeutic approach.
I began practising as a Counsellor in 2003, and as a Psychotherapist and Coach in 2004. I have a Masters Degree in Counselling from the University of Strathclyde. I work integratively, using a unique approach with each client, meeting their individual needs. I undertake frequent advanced professional learning and am a member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). In addition to Therapy and Coaching I am a skilled Mediator, Facilitator, Researcher, Trainer and Therapeutic Supervisor.
Counsellors, Psychotherapists & Coaches
The Green Rooms employs many sessional practitioners, all of whom are educated to a minimum of post-graduate level in the discipline of Counselling, Psychotherapy, Counselling Psychology, Art Psychotherapy or Coaching. Our practitioners are all members of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) or the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT) and adhere to the relevant code of ethics.
All sessional staff are insured to carry out this work. If you wish, you can request to work with a particular member of staff, you can request that you work with someone who is female/male, someone who works with a particular therapeutic approach (e.g. CBT, Person Centred), or someone who is BACP Accredited.
Your confidentiality is taken very seriously and will only be broken in extreme circumstances. For more information see our client agreement.Make an Appointment or Enquire
