Who is the Director?

Alison Barr. Director of The green Rooms Glasgow.

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 contractor basis, the day, time and location of your appointment can be flexible. You can also request that your Counsellor, Psychotherapist or Coach:

  • Is female or male
  • Works with a particular therapeutic approach (e.g. CBT, Person Centred)
  • Has a particular specialism (e.g. bereavement, depression, anxiety, etc)
  • Is BACP Accredited

If you would like to work with a particular member of staff we will do our best to accommodate this.

I began practicing full time as a Counsellor in 2003, and as a Psychotherapist and Coach in 2004 My Masters Degree in Counselling is from the University of Strathclyde. I work integratively, using a unique approach with each client, meeting their individual needs.

My professional membership is with the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I undertake frequent advanced professional learning. In addition to Counselling, Psychotherapy, Coaching and Mindfulness, I am a skilled Therapeutic  Supervisor, Mediator, Facilitator, Researcher and Trainer.

Who are the Counsellors, Psychotherapists & Coaches?
