Alex Proudfoot AIDip CBT/REBT, NCS accred registrant
My service includes Skype sessions internationally and face-to-face sessions in Dudley for those seeking help with developing psychological wellbeing.
We all have the potential to disturb ourselves, and so it is important to learn the ways we can help ourselves get unstuck. My work is systematic and we can approach working with the difficulties you now face.
Know these difficulties will not last for all time, as we can change our outlook on life in order to move through. My own life experience was transformed and enriched when I came across this approach that has a philosophical basis. Through our work together and your tasks between sessions you can reconnect with what is important to you and find your direction.
Training, qualifications & experience
I received a Foundation Certificate in Psychotherapy and Counselling in 2012. Further training gave me first a diploma and then an advanced diploma in CBT/REBT.
Upon continuing my professional and personal development I gained an advanced diploma in Integrative Therapies that supports psychodynamic, hypnotherapy, and other technical interventions to work more personally and covering specific areas of your experience.
My experience ranges from working in Agencies as volunteer for a number of years; The SWAN Project in Bristol, Turning Point in Trowbridge, Anxiety UK internationally via Skype as volunteer and sessional worker, and working in private practice in my treatment rooms in Trowbridge, then in Wolverhampton and Dudley since moving to the West Midlands.
This work brings me great joy, both for my own understanding and also as witness to the many people that have benefited from this work by learning new ways of being.
