Alexandra Lee Bolton BA (Hons), FdSc, MBACP Psychotherapist and Counsellor
CURRENTLY HOLDING SESSIONS ONLINE AND BY PHONE, PLUS SOME FACE TO FACE SESSIONS AVAILABLE FROM AUGUST.
Life can be a struggle challenging and confusing. Sometimes it can be difficult to talk openly to the people in your life.
As an experienced psychotherapist I provide a safe, confidential space to explore whatever is on your mind.
I can support you in finding your way through the difficulties you’re experiencing, or have experienced in the past, in a way that feels right for you, and at a pace that feels comfortable.
We can work together to make sense of what you’re thinking, feeling and going through, allowing you to develop a sense of healing, establish goals and grow towards them, and gain a greater understanding of yourself.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Psychotherapist, certified in Integrative Counselling. This means I can work in a variety of ways depending on your needs, using my expertise in different approaches, including Clarkson, Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Gestalt, and the Transpersonal. You may have heard of some of these ways of working in therapy before, but don’t worry if you haven’t, what really matters is how you feel throughout our work together. Together we will find a way that suits you.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and follow their Ethical Framework and policies.
I help clients with a variety of concerns and challenges, including:
- Relationship issues
- Past difficulties in early life
- Low self-esteem
- Low self-confidence
- Feeling sad
- Divorce / Separation
- Sense of identity
- Feeling stuck
- Self harm
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£60.00 per session
Free initial telephone session
Each one to one session is 50 minutes long.
I am experienced in providing weekly short-term (starting at 6 sessions) and long-term therapy (2 years+) to people aged 18 and over.
Together we can establish what is right for you.
Free Phone Consultation:
Contact me to book a free 20 minute call, this allows me to begin to understand what you are currently going through, where you would like to make changes in your life and see if I’m the right therapist to help you.
Currently I am holding all sessions online via Zoom and by phone with face to face sessions resuming in August. Most of my clients prefer Zoom and find it very user friendly. Zoom is free to use, and I will create a private, confidential video call for our sessions. If you are not familiar with this, don’t worry I can explain this process to you.
