About Andrew Allan

Hello, my name is Andrew Allan and I am a fully qualified couples counsellor. I hold an Advanced Diploma in Couples Therapy and I am accredited by NCPS (National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society). 

During our sessions, I will give you both a safe space to explain your reasons for seeking therapy and your desired outcomes. It is common to struggle to identify exact issues or perhaps you feel overwhelmed by the number of things you would like to address. Rest assured, I am here to help you in identifying the core issues and recurring patterns. Conversely, you may be concerned that your problems seem trivial. I will support you regardless of whether your issues feel big or small.

I will work with you as individuals as well as a couple. Together, we will explore your personal histories, including childhoods, if you are happy to. This is because the way we interact with each other is often influenced by our past. However, I appreciate that delving into personal history can be challenging, so I approach this with sensitivity and flexibility to accommodate your specific needs.

In addition to our exploratory work, I will also equip you with practice tools and techniques to help you address your present challenges. These resources will empower you to improve communication, reduce conflict and rebuild trust within your relationship. Finally, we will explore your desired future for the relationship, fostering a shared vision that aligns with your aspirations.

The best results are achieved when we work together. Your questions and feedback are always welcome and I prioritise transparency and open communication throughout our sessions.

Before embarking on my counselling career, I gained valuable experience working in a government department. This opportunity allowed me to interact with individuals from diverse backgrounds and cultures, providing me with a broader perspective and a deeper understanding of the world we live in.

My passion for counselling was ignited during my time as a volunteer at Samaritans. It was a profoundly fulfilling experience to offer support to individuals at their lowest ebb. This involvement taught me the significance of active listening and empathetically stepping into others’ shoes. In my opinion, these qualities form the foundation of being an effective counsellor.

By combining my professional background with my personal experiences, I bring a unique blend of real-world understanding and compassionate support to my counselling practice. I am committed to creating a safe and non-judgmental space for individuals from all walks of life.
