If you’re at a point in your life where you’re struggling, feeling low, anxious, or alone with your problems, I would genuinely like to listen, understand and help you find a way forward.
It is not always easy to speak to those closest to us, especially if worried about how they might respond. You don’t need to be alone with your thoughts, feelings, or issues anymore. I will listen with compassion and really hear what it is like for you and work with you to help see a way through your difficulty.
My approach is warm, friendly and welcoming, offering you a safe, confidential space where you are free to explore whatever it is that may be troubling you. I offer complete acceptance for the person you are, no judgement and will work compassionately and professionally alongside you to explore your concerns to help you gain deeper insight, self-awareness and understanding.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the BACP and have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling. I am trained and qualified in Integrative counselling which incorporates the theoretical approaches of Person-centred Therapy, Cognitive & Behavioural Therapy and Transactional Analysis, which I will incorporate and apply as appropriate to our work together and your individual needs. I will work with you to help understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and together we can process and help clear the fog that might be clouding your day to day living and causing you distress or uncertainty.
I work with adults over 18 and have extensive experience working with a broad range of issues including; anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem, loss, bereavement, anger and relationship issues. As part of my training and post qualification, I held a voluntary counselling role within Tameside, Oldham & Glossop Mind.
Before training as a counsellor, I worked for 15 years in a business and marketing environment so have first hand experience of the pressures that can bring. As a people manager during this time, I gained extensive experience in supporting people from different walks of life with issues of stress, loss of confidence and overwhelm.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Recognising that you may benefit from counselling is a good first step but if you’re still a little unsure or wondering whether I might be the right counsellor for you, please get in touch to make a no obligation enquiry and we can explore it together during an initial, 20-minute, free telephone consultation. If after our initial conversation you’re still not sure, that is absolutely fine, there will be no pressure from me whatsoever but you will have taken a positive step forward.
Please get in touch via your preferred method: email Therapywithalexia@gmail.com or telephone 07706 289177 to request a free, no-obligation telephone consultation. I will definitely reply to you so please check your junk folder for email replies as sometimes they are sent there automatically.
I will get back to you as soon as possible to arrange a convenient date and time and during this call, we can discuss what you hope to gain from counselling, how we can work together and cover any questions you may have. It will give us the opportunity to see if we are well matched and if you feel ready, we can arrange our first session or you may like to take some more time to think about it.
I work face to face from the Counselling and Therapy centre in Heaton Moor, SK4 and also from Dukinfield SK16. I can also offer sessions via online video and telephone.
