Christine Allen founder of Cirencester CounsellingChristine Allan (BA Hons, Psych/Phil) is the face behind Cirencester Counselling. She has been a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor since 2000 and is registered and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Christine is also trained in the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). 

Christine holds a postgraduate diploma in Consultative Clinical Supervision – both group and individual supervision can be provided. 

Alongside her busy private practice, Christine has experience of working in a GP surgery and for an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) and is a registered practitioner with Aviva. Christine has many years’ experience of working as a tutor and supervisor for a leading counselling agency. 

Before any counselling is undertaken, a free-of-charge 15 minute telephone assessment can be arranged. This may help clarify whether counselling is appropriate for you or whether another form of intervention might be more suitable. A 90-minute consultation is always carried out prior to commencing weekly 50-minute counselling sessions. 

Christine works in a variety of ways with her clients. You may require only five or six sessions to focus on a particular problem. Others prefer to work on a longer-term basis to help with issues which have been a difficulty for some time.
