Hi, I'm Alex, I have worked in the mental health sector for the past five years. I am a registered BACP Counsellor based in Stoke-on-Trent. Over time I have worked with a wide variation of clients. I have a collaborative approach in therapy with my clients best interests at heart.
It is estimated that 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem each year. I am passionate about supporting individuals, couples and families through difficult periods in life. I provide a counselling service for children, teens and adults. I can guide and support you to explore emotions and provide coping tools to aid changes for personal growth. Therapy is not 'one size fits all', and my approach will be tailored to meet client needs and expectations.
