Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed, or that you're lacking a sense of purpose? Maybe a loss has left you feeling hopeless, confused and lonely? Is something holding you back from living the life you want to live? Maybe you are struggling to communicate and connect with your partner? Do you question why you keep repeating the same patterns?
Hello, my name is Alex; I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and a Psychosexual Therapist, working in North London.
My aim is to help you explore your feelings, thoughts and emotions and the affect they have on your behaviour and mood. I see the therapeutic process as a collaborative one, with the two of us working side-by-side to develop a better awareness of yourself and your relationships with others.
I work with individuals & couples who have experienced a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress, abuse, trauma, bereavement. I specialise in relationships & sexual problems around communication, desire/arousal, orgasm, erectile difficulties, vaginal discomfort/pain, trauma, body image issues, sexual identity, menopause, monogamy/non-monogamy, polyamory, affairs, pornography addiction, kink, bdsm.
It can be daunting to reach out to someone you don't know to share your most private & intimate thoughts. Making the decision to come to therapy is not always an easy one and demonstrates a willingness and desire for change. In return, my commitment is to support and facilitate you on this journey to the best of my ability.
I offer short and long term counselling in a safe & confidential environment.
I offer a free 15 minute initial phone consultation to discuss any concerns or questions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and a Postgrad Diploma in Integrative Psychosexual Therapy.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am also a member of The College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT).
I undertake Continual Professional Development and have full professional insurance.
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).
