Alison Kerruish, Psychotherapist


Welcome to my website.

My name is Alison Kerruish and I am a psychotherapist based in Sidmouth, East Devon.

I offer therapy sessions to both individuals and to couples and I also offer supervision.

I originally trained in Gestalt psychotherapy and since then, I have integrated other ideas and concepts including transgeneratinal issues and those from a psychodynamic/ psychoanalytic pespective.

Gestalt is an integrative philosophy and practice which aims to help you to become more aware of yourself and how you function in the world. Having more self-awareness can naturally lead to having more choice in how you live your life.

Psychodynamic theories emphasise the link between conscious and unconscious forces inside people.

Transgeneratinal ideas refers to looking at patterns in a family’s history that may have been passed down through the generations.

Psychotherapy and Counselling

I offer a safe and supportive setting in which to explore thoughts and feelings. Therapy can help to make sense of what is happening in your life, to explore different choices and to help you to feel better equipped for the future. 


For counsellors, therapists and those who use counselling skills. I provide a supportive environment to talk through, reflect on and develop your practice.
