About me


My name is Alexandra Peet. I work with individuals over 18 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 psychotherapist to work with it's important that you can trust them and feel safe. I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist which means that I work with people 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.

My aim with each patient 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 counselling or psychotherapy because you have a specific concern you want to address or you may have less clarity about why you are not feeling yourself.

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 psychotherapy at the moment and 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 on 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.

Member organisations

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

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).
