Alison Collison


I am committed to helping my clients gain emotional balance in their lives. Having personally faced a number of life challenges, I understand the need for support during difficult times, and the desire to develop balance and perspective for personal well-being. As a Clinical Social Worker, I work with Individuals, couples and families.
I pride myself in being very straightforward in my personal and professional relationships. Humour and deep empathy are essential parts of who I am. My professional training in a number of theoretical models allows me to support my clients in a manner that they find useful. We figure out together what would be helpful. Some of the models that I draw from are: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Relational Life Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Internal Family Systems.
My experience includes working as a Faculty member at George Brown College for over 15 years, and working as a Clinical Therapist at North York General Hospital. I have been working as a Therapist in Private Practice from the past 8 years. I hold a Masters of Social Work Degree from Wilfrid Laurier University. I am the mother to two young men, who have taught me more about life that I could ever learn from a text book.

I look forward to meeting with you at The Pape Therapy Centre.
