Alexis Pfeiffer BA hons, MBACP (Accred)
Hello, I am an experienced Person Centered and Relate Trained Counsellor working with individuals and couples. Counselling can help with a number of areas include anxiety, low self- esteem, depression, feelings of isolation, bereavement or relationship Issues. I offer a warm, safe and non-judgmental space in which you can open up and be yourself in order to explore any difficulties troubling you. Most of us struggle with difficult experiences at some point in our lives and these may seem overwhelming and leave one confused and unable to make sense of them. Sometimes life may feel empty and meaningless and most people benefit enormously from talking to a professional therapist.
I use an integrative approach and endeavour to offer the kind of therapy that is tailored to a person's individual needs, combining various theoretical models including Person-centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural therapy and Transactional Analysis. It is a collaborative approach in which we work together to make sense of what is happening in your life and help you gain a deeper understanding of the reasons that have brought you to seek counselling. Often these include negative ways of thinking or unhelpful patterns or behaviours that have their origins in childhood.
If you find yourself reading this profile you maybe experiencing difficulty coping with some of life's challenges and often making the initial contact is the most daunting step , so I encourage you to call me now on 07904 685282 regarding any difficulties you may have. You have nothing to lose and the first session is completely free so you can tell me about yourself and to see if we both feel comfortable about working together. We can then set up further sessions on a weekly basis either short term or open-ended.
I look forward to hearing from you.
