Who's Your Therapist


Who am I outside of the therapy room, and why can’t I turn my brain off? We discuss working in a profession that beckons us to keep it together, and then needing a place to let it all out. Alison touches upon a family history of mental illness, and what she refers to a Capital “D” and Lower Case “D” depression. We also share our own “going to a therapist” horror stories and the lengths we go to not repeat them with our clients. Alison is the owner of Maratos Counselling and Consulting Services, in Brantford, Ontario. She most recently launched “The Practice Companion,” an online resource designed to help therapists create a successful private practice.
