About me

Alex has been helping people better understand and cope with their lives, both at work and at home, since 2003. The best way to find out if he is the right fit for you is to call and have a conversation about what you are hoping for. Alex helps people from all over the world, from different backgrounds and different professions, both groups and individuals, in corporate and family settings.

It really matters to him that we all find the right people to help us, so even if calling him once is what helps you to start, this is a great first step.‬

His approach means really listening to what your unique needs are and working with you to see what can be done to begin to move towards feeling better, or improving your situation. Both short term and long term arrangements can be made, depending on what your specific needs are.

In his own words, "I work with people's unique and specific needs with an understanding that life does not have labels and categories, other than the ones we assign. I have combined best practice from a wide range of therapies to make sure that those I am helping receive the highest quality of care. With a scientific understanding, I believe our reality is one that can be pleasant even though unpleasant things happen to us sometimes or even that we may (in some cases) make life unpleasant for ourselves. Being and feeling truly alive means embracing life, for what it is... easier said then done, right?

I understand that, because we are complicated beings, our path may not always be straight, that sometimes there are twists and turns that take even the most capable of us by surprise. To train myself and others to cope with life's changing nature, I have learned how “people” are viewed from the perspective of different disciplines and schools of thought, so I am continually learning to be the best help I can possibly be. My wish is for people to find what will really, truly works for them, if I can be helpful in that process I consider it an honour. The best way to find out if that is possible for you, is to call and talk about it."
