About me

"Alex took time to get to know what made me me. She provided a space free from judgement and criticism and helped me to see a way forward even when I felt completely stuck.."

If you are struggling with difficulties in your life - in your relationships, work, or how you feel about yourself - then counselling can make a difference. I support clients to find the cause of their problems, what is stopping them from changing, and work out how to move forward positively in their everyday lives.

I offer a warm welcome to new clients at my clinic in Kings Heath B14.

I have experience working with:
anxiety * depression * relationship issues (individual not couple work) * bereavement * low self esteem * confidence building * assertiveness * work stress * separation and loss * abuse * identity confusion * life purpose and transitions

It is possible to make profound changes in short term therapy but once we have established a relationship you may find that a period of longer therapy will give you more profound and lasting results.

Here's what some of my clients have said about working with me:

"Alex was very professional and really took the time to understand the root causes of my problems and I would wholeheartedly recommend her. She is non-judgemental and compassionate. She also has an amazing memory!"

"Immediately I met Alex, I knew she was the right person for me. I found it easy to be open and honest with her about my thoughts and feelings, and she was able to help me unravel emotions that had been influencing me all my life."

"I had preconceptions of “therapy” being about lying on a couch and uncovering dark secrets about the past. It’s true that Alex uses a range of approaches to help you reflect on what you’re feeling and where some of those thoughts and experiences may have come from, but it’s all done in a natural, calm setting. It feels much more like an honest chat than a heavy therapy session. Alex is patient, compassionate, and a great listener."

I am fully qualified, and senior accredited with BACP and have been practising as a counsellor since 2005. I also work as a life coach so you may find some of the work we do is solution focused or goal orientated when you are ready to move things forward.
