About me

Hi, I am Alex. I am an Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist and founder of Talking Treatment Associates.

I have a BSc(Hons) in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy and I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy).

I run a private practice from both Wandsworth and Central London.

Additionally I work as a psychotherapist for both Nuffield Health and The Priory Hospital, I am located from both the hospital in Roehampton as well as their Central London Harley Street therapy rooms.

"There is still so much stigma here in the UK around mental health issues – strange really, as we will happily spend hours in the gym and on special diets, in order to care for our bodies and physical health! So, why not our psychological well being? Recent breakthroughs in neuro-science inform us that physical changes take place in the brain when we are emotionally or psychologically distressed. The mind/body relationship is more central to our lives today than ever before".

My aim is to provide a professional service in a safe and confidential setting, offering access to counselling and psychotherapy in a modern world;

Therapy, specialising in areas such as;

Health Issues; Anger Management; Work Stress; Anxiety; Depression; Stress; Relationship Issues; Couples Therapy; Post Natal Depression; Sexual Identity; Psychosexual Issues; Sexual Abuse; Family Problems; Eating Disorders; Bereavement / Loss, Identity.

Therapeutic support groups;

  • Stress Management

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at Roehampton University gaining a BSc (Hons) in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy
I am a Accredited member of the BACP

I have experience working as part of multi-disciplinary teams, both surgeries and institutions, GP and Psychiatrist led.

For the last 6 years I have worked privately for the NHS within a Wandsworth GP surgery and as a therapist at the Priory Hospital, Roehampton and Harley Street.

Alongside this I have been lucky enough to build up a private practice in both Southfields SW18, and Central London. It is in my private practice that I take much fulfillment from running tailored therapeutic support groups for stress management, anger management, post natal depression and relationships.

In the last 2 years I have created a unique stress management programme that runs UK weekenders for both public and corporate interest.

Fee's for Individual Therapy;

Concessions are offered on a sliding scale, if you feel you would depend upon a concessional rate we can discuss during the assessment.
Initial assessment is £75
Fee thereafter range from £65 - £75

I strongly believe a one off initial assessment is essential for you, not just me, to assess how you feel about the therapeutic environment, also me as your potential therapist. A one off assessment does not contract you.   If you feel you would like to trial another therapist before committing to any more sessions then I can refer you to someone else to experience.

During the assessment should it be that I believe you would be better suited to a specialist associate member then fee's may vary, according to their fee structure, this will be discussed together in the assessment.
