About me


My name is Alexandra Peet. I work with individuals who seek support in their anxiety, isolation, loneliness, depression, self-esteem, loss and grief. I also work with relationship issues such as difficulties in relationships, abuse, work-related stress, family and parenting challenges.

How I Work

When choosing a therapist to work with it's important that you can trust them and feel safe. I am a qualified psychodynamic therapist which means that I work with my clients to explore their past experiences to identify unhelpful patterns that they repeat. Once we are aware of these patterns we can then change our behaviours and move forward in a more positive way.

This has been backed up by neuroscience proving that we can make new neural pathways at any time of our life. Once we have worked out the patterns that hold us back we really can retrain our brain so that we can behave more healthily in the future. I am active in this process and the relationships I build with my clients and ask questions and give honest feedback if required.

My aim with each client is to work together to find ways for you to improve how you feel by becoming more confident and in control of your life.

What To Expect

You may have come for therapy because you have a specific concern you want to address or you may have less clarity about why you are not feeling yourself. You can decide whether you want to work for a few sessions on a particular issue or on a longer-term basis at a deeper level.

The next step is to book an initial consultation of 50 minutes.  This will give you the opportunity to tell me why you are seeking counselling at the moment and for me to tell you how I work.  It will also give us the chance to see what it will be like to work together.

If we decide to continue working together we will then decide a regular day and time every week for 50 minutes. This is important so that we can build a relationship of trust and commitment to the work.

Further information

I work within the framework of the BACP's guidelines for ethical practice and GDPR  guidelines for confidentiality and treat all client information in the strictest of confidence.

My private practice is usually based at 2 venues:

1) I work mainly from my home consulting room in Southbourne BH6.  There is parking in the road and on the cliff.

2) The Coastal Practice, Hengistbury Head which has plenty of parking on the road outside.

However, I am currently working remotely from my home consulting room in Southbourne.

I enjoy regularly updating my knowledge and skills with courses and my own reading and research.  I am interested in the relationship between the mind and the body and the way they both work together to give us information about ourselves.
