Alex Newbery MBACP, Advanced Dip. Psychotherapeutic Counselling
As a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, my work uses a relational integrative approach. This way of working is firmly rooted in building a safe and compassionate therapeutic relationship with my clients. Within this relationship I carefully attune to the needs, feelings and pace of each individual, to enable movement toward their own personal therapeutic goals.
Sessions can help clients explore an understanding of their difficulties, uncover patterns in their history and decide upon steps towards change. Coping and well-being skills can be developed through the therapeutic relationship to assist with anxiety, loss, depression and many other life challenges.
The direction of the therapy is client driven and can often explore deeper, longer term issues and relationships that clients have with others, and with themselves.
Whether you are impacted by the current global situation or have a more personal or historical difficulty, my training and experience can allow a space for you to look into what may otherwise be difficult to explore on your own.
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 in the voluntary sector, in the work place through employee assistance programs and in private practice.
In line with current guidance, I offer sessions remotely via Zoom and by phone. 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.
