Dr Alex Morris
I am an approachable and positive Integrative Chartered Psychologist and Psychotherapist in Richmond upon Thames with an additional consulting room in central London. My style is practical, warm, proactive and conversational.
We can all find life tough at different points in our lives as it is part of being human. My clients may have been struggling for a long time or feel that they have issues which prevent them from reaching their full potential.
I offer a range of specialist psychological evidence-based therapies, drawing on approaches to suit each individual.
During therapy, we work together on issues that are causing unhappiness or difficulties in life. We sensitively explore strategies to foster progress, a greater sense of meaning, fulfilment, resilience and self-understanding. As well as traditional psychological talking therapies (e.g. CBT, psychodynamic and humanistic approaches), I also integrate Mindfulness based therapy and EMDR. Research shows that whatever type of therapy you choose, what matters the most in reaching a resolution is the quality of the relationship between the therapist and the client. I offer a free initial 15 minute session to enable you to chat through any issues and see whether you feel that we would be a good fit.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Fees are per 50 minute session. Please contact me to discuss.
To "get started" with counselling please call or email me (easiest) to set up an initial short intro session; I'll talk to you about what you want to get out of counselling and if you're happy to continue we'll set up a second session. We can then arrange to see each other weekly/fortnightly.
