About me

Hello, I am Alex, a fully qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Psychologist with over 8 years of experience. I offer a creative, authentic and personable approach to counselling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families in Central and East London.

Challenging life transitions, difficulties in work, love or family relationship issues, anxiety, panic attacks or depression - these are some of the experiences people have come to me with and found our work helpful.

Whether it is personal growth or a specific difficulty you want to work on, we can explore the options and arrangement that will work for you in our initial consultation.

About this process

It is a big step to start counselling or therapy - often it’s a difficult decision to even come to a first session. Using the support of a therapist does not mean you are ill or dysfunctional, on the contrary, it means you have a healthy sense of what you might need.

Any place is a good place to start from, and your questions, doubts or reservations are very welcome in my practice.

The next step for you:

I would like to invite you for an initial session without further commitment, in which we can discuss your reasons for coming, what you are looking for and get to know each other a little. This will help both of us decide if and how we want to work together and for you to decide whether therapy in general, and with me in particular, is what you want to commit to at this time in your life.

Please contact me via email to arrange an initial consultation.

About my approach and how I work

The therapy style I offer will be slightly different with each person; you will get me, responding to you, rather than a fixed school of thought or technique.

In our work we will also pay attention to what happens in the room between us as well as make links to the larger circumstances of your life including your history, when useful.

  • I offer time limited therapy, which means we will together agree a focus for our work and a suitable number of sessions we will work together, until we review and end. There will be a few months break, and if you wish, we can then begin a new piece of work.
  • I offer therapy and counselling in English or German/Ich biete Therapie auch auf Deutsch an.

My main training background is in Gestalt psychotherapy, which is a holistic and relational approach focusing on exploring here-and-now experiences, with influences from Eastern philosophy and psychodynamic theory. The assumption being that by gaining new awareness, you will feel more able to change, act, finish what needs to be finished, accept or move on.

Training, qualifications & experience

Training: I am a qualified Gestalt Psychotherapeutic Counsellor (PGDip from Metanoia Institute/Middlesex University) with a BSc in Psychology and I have additional training in Systemic Constellations for Teams and Families, and in Systemic Couples Counselling.
