About me

Welcome to my profile page, my name is Alexandra. I am an integrative therapist providing individual counselling for adults both remotely (Zoom) and in-person (Weymouth).

I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including trauma, abuse, relationship problems, anxiety, depression, addiction, burnout and so on. I also helped clients when they faced a specific challenge or problem in life or when they wanted to gain a better understanding of themselves and others.

My style is warm and I provide a safe place to come and explore yourself and your problems. Counselling provides space to share and to be listened to; enables you to grow and find your best potential in a non-judgemental and empathic way. 

Please feel free to contact me (email and messages) or book a free 15-minute telephone consultation before you make a decision.

My availability

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday: Morning and evening/night sessions

Saturday: 10am-3pm

Tuesday and Sunday are not available. 

Please message/email me directly if you're interested, I look forward to hearing from you. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked in health and social care for several years before moving on and volunteering at Redlands Counselling and Training Agency. I also worked for a local drug and alcohol company before setting up my private practice. 

I have worked with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, addiction, burnout, loneliness, grief, and so on. I believe in a biopsychosocial approach that considers biological/physical, psychological, and social factors in a person's life as they interact. I combine person-centered therapy, Gestalt therapy, and transactional analysis when I work with clients.

  • MSc Health Psychology
  • Level 4 Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling 
  • BSc Psychology (Hon) 
  • Ongoing CPD
  • Working online certificate
  • Diploma Level 3 in Health and Social Care

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
