Dr. Alge Suliakaite -Grant, Systemic Family Psychotherapist, UKCP Registered
I am experienced Systemic Family Therapist, I hold Professional Membership of the UKCP and the AFT. I have a passion for working with people from all walks of life; be it couples, families, and individuals.
AT times we all get a feeling that we are stuck. Perhaps we do not know where we want to go or how to get there. I want to hear your story, your hopes and your fears. I know that asking for help is not always easy. Making the first phone call is often the hardest step, but you need not worry. I have spent years training and working in the field and have seen how truly rewarding therapy can be. I have the deepest respect for people who seek help and I am dedicated to making sure I will be the perfect fit for you. I believe people and situations are deeply inter-connected, and this is the way I approach all the work I do with my clients.
I have studied and lived in different countries and now I have settled in absolutely gorgeous Cornwall. My different cultural experiences shaped my worldview where every person is unique and exceptional. However, the difference that we have at time might instil difficulties within relationships.
I work with a broad range of issues; I have a specialist interest and experience in the following areas:
- relationship issues
- infidelity (online infidelity)
- transition after divorce when children are involved
- bereavement and loss
- trauma (Post-traumatic stress disorder)
- communication challenges
- low self-esteem
Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions.
