About me

Hi, I'm Alex,  a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor and psychotherapist working with adults and young people 18+.

Life can be difficult at times and although we might have coping mechanisms to see us through, sometimes they aren't quite enough and it can become overwhelming to cope alone. I understand seeking support can feel daunting, but it also shows courage when everything else may feel hopeless.

Perhaps you find yourself struggling with a current situation, or maybe past events are affecting your present, leaving you feeling anxious, or disempowered, and this prevents you moving forward? Whatever your experiences, my aim is to facilitate and encourage you to explore healthier coping strategies and find deeper self-awareness, enabling you to move forward.

How I work:

I believe a strong, nurturing relationship between therapist and client is a powerful catalyst for healing. Promoting self-awareness and lasting change, our relationship will be built on trust, respect, realness and honesty. This enables you to share freely and not feel judged. I will not give advice, but rather help you find your own answers and decisions through an objective lens. Together, we can explore what you would like to be different and how I can support you in achieving this.

Working collaboratively with you to explore your unique experience, I am able to tailor my approach to your individual needs by drawing on different elements from several therapeutic models, including psychodynamic, person-centred, solution focused, transactional analysis and transpersonal. I offer both short and long term counselling.

Aside from my private practice, I have experience in supporting young adults as a counsellor in a university well-being setting. Additionally, I volunteered as a bereavement counsellor in palliative care for two years.

What happens next?

Please feel free to contact my practice on 07377926967 or send me a message to arrange a free 20 minute phone consultation, where you can share what brings you to counselling, and  I can answer any questions you may have. It is also an opportunity for you to get a sense of me and if I'm the right therapist for you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
