Hello and Welcome


Hello, my name is Alice, thank you for visiting my site.

Named Adonis after the rare and beautiful Adonis butterfly, who is unaware of his own beauty, I look to provide a safe and supportive environment to empower you to explore your struggles. I started Adonis Counselling Services because I believe that we all deserve support to navigate difficult times in our lives and I truly believe in the healing power of talking therapy.  I offer a calm and comfortable space to allow you time to work through whatever it is that is difficult right now. I offer adults person-centred therapy as my core modality, meaning that as we work together, we can tailor our sessions to best suit you. I also have a Level 5 diploma in Play Therapy for working with children and young people. I strive to provide a warm and confidential space so that you can start to feel like yourself again. 


Most of my clients see a gradual easing of symptoms within the first few months and a sustained improvement thereafter.
