Alice Tew BSc. (Hons) Registered MBACP Counsellor & Psychotherapist
Are you tired of overthinking and never feeling good enough?
Do you feel like relationships with loved ones are often difficult or disappointing?
Are you struggling to relax and enjoy life?
I help people who feel stressed, depressed, irritated and anxious to feel calm and confident so that they can start to live a life that is fulfilling.
When life is hard, it is difficult to feel hope for the future. It feels like setting yourself up for a fall and you're not sure whether you've got the strength and energy to get back up again.
By working with me, we can understand more about who you are, why you feel the way you do and what you can do to bring about real, lasting change.
Together we can gain a greater understanding of how you've got to the place you've found yourself in – scared, overwhelmed and looking for a therapist. We can find some calm and clarity among the chaos and we can find a path towards a more peaceful, more joyful, more fulfilling life.
I am a fully qualified and insured Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I have a BSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am a Registered Member of BACP. I truly believe that with some courage, we can change things we thought we would struggle with for the rest of our lives.
I am probably the right therapist for you if you have been struggling alone for some time, other things you’ve tried haven’t really worked and you’re committed to making changes to your life so that you can live better.
There’s nothing I love more than helping people to reach their potential. As a therapist I am gentle and kind, and I will also be straight with you so you know where you stand. I’m not a therapist who will just smile and nod along with whatever you say.
I’m probably not the right therapist for you if you’re looking for a quick fix or want someone to just tell you what to do.
So if it sounds like you would like to work with me, I’d be delighted to hear from you. Send me an email and I'll get back to you to arrange a telephone consultation or first appointment.
