Amy Alexander MBACP, Psychotherapist in Kettering
*****Please note as of May 2018 I am now operating a waiting list *****
As a therapist working in my community for nearly 20 years, I offer a seasoned and warm approach to the work we do together. I commit to long-term and short-term relationships with clients struggling with all sorts of issues from childhood trauma to anxiety. I work with clients to focus on managing difficult feelings, anxiety and panic, processing loss and working toward a peaceful mind. I also work with psychotherapists that are seeking their own psychotherapy as this can sometimes be a complex and rich area. I also offer couples and family therapy.
Please note I do not work weekends
My framework is Transactional Analysis, and I work in a relational style. Simply put we can explore the impact of early and current relationships on your sense of self and wellbeing. The interaction between therapist and client begins to highlight, clarify, and heal the pattern of relational problems.
Although the focus of my practice has broadened over the years, eating disorders and childhood trauma are my special interests. I treat a broad spectrum of eating problems. I also have experience with negotiating and discovering ways of living well with Aspergers Syndrome.
- I also help with people who have relationship problems, couples therapy, live with anxiety, chronic illness and pain, grief and loss. I work with complex issues, such as dissociative disorders and abuse. I also work to support families with complex needs.
What to expect?
A session lasts 50 minutes, once a week. Sometimes it is useful to have two sessions a week in times of crisis, or going deeper into complex and difficult work. Our contract can be long-term and opened ended or short term.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
I work with all sorts of difference and am open to yours.
