Alison talking about how Therapy works

Talking therapies offer a space to explore and accept difficult emotions.



Profile:

Alison Hunt

Alison is an incredibly calm and empathetic individual who is very considered in her approach. She explores the origins of behaviours that have become self-defeating, but also focuses on improving an individual's life and well-being in the present, on current coping strategies and support systems. She aims to work in a transparent and collaborative way, to help clients explore and find the best way forward.

Specialisms

Alison specialises in the treatment of alcohol and substance abuse and process addictions (including compulsive overspending, sexual addiction and addictive patterns in relationships).  Alison also has experience working with LGBT community and works with the Terence Higgins Trust.

She has had many years of experience working with people at all stages of the journey of recovery from addiction, particularly those who have stopped the addictive behaviours and now find that they need professional help to deal with underlying issues. Alison also has extensive experience in eating disorders, depression, offering family support, issues around sexuality and gender identity, stress, panic and coping with life, work and career issues.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.

  • I would recommend Clinical Partners to anyone who has been struggling with getting a diagnosis, it can totally transform your lives as it has ours.

  • I was fed up with life when I contacted Katie at Clinical Partners, her response to my call and the support thereafter kept me alive.

  • Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.

  • Just saw J. He wanted me to tell you how much he appreciated the way you spoke to him on the phone Caroline. He said you made him feel human again when he felt quite suicidal. He was really pleased he was seen so quickly.

  • We met with the doctor today, he was great, we felt at ease with him, he was very professional in his approach and obviously knew what he was doing! Thank you for your help in arranging such a quick appointment.

  • SO grateful to Clinical Partners - well Simon - for the confirmation of NOT having Cyclothymia. Am attempting now to stabilise and get well - something I was told would not happen when diagnosed with Cyclothymia (for life!).

  • I would like to thank the Clinical Partners staff for asking about us. I like to let you know that M's physical and psychological health is great. With my best regards and respect.

  • You have been fantastic at helping T see the help he can get and I am so grateful. Again thank you so much, I really do appreciate the efforts you have put in.

  • Thank you for setting us (and me in particular) off down the road. I will always be grateful to you, and I do feel that you spent a lot of time on my case without much reward.
