Alex Newbery MBACP, Advanced Dip. Psychotherapeutic Counselling
We are all living in a unique time which may be impacting our relationships with others and ourselves. There can be losses, reevaluations and changes to adapt to. Our individual histories may also be impacting how we cope in the here and now. For some, simply the present time can be the challenge. My training and experience can allow a space for you to explore what may otherwise be difficult to process on your own
As a BACP registered counsellor, I am able to offer a confidential and professional counselling service, currently online or by phone at flexible times. In line with Government guidelines and my ethical practice, I have suspended face-to-face meetings to safeguard both my clients and myself.
Whatever your experience, whatever thoughts, feelings or behaviours are causing you difficulty right now, I can offer you the safety of a professional, ethical and compassionate therapeutic relationship within which to explore them and support you.
I have worked alongside many individual adults, at their different life stages. My counselling work has included a wide variety of issues within both short and longer term therapy. I hold a limited number of lower fee spaces available to low income groups, key workers and counselling students. I welcome any initial enquiries via email, text or phone.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
