Alex Pearce - Counselling and Psychotherapy
I will listen and respond to you carefully, reliably, and without prejudice in order to help you make sense of your thoughts, feelings, and relationships.
As well as my clinical training, which is psychoanalytic, my previous career teaching philosophy and literature has given me an interest in the social, economic and cultural contexts of the self, and a belief in the ethical and creative potential of psychotherapy.
Get in touch to arrange a consultation where you can tell me about your situation and what you're looking for, and we'll think together about how I can help you. I work from consulting rooms in central and east London, and also online and on the phone. A consultation is free, confidential, and without obligation.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
