Hi, I'm Alex. I'm glad you found me. Taking the next step could be the most important one. If you have something you are struggling with emotionally, or if you want a safe space to talk, get in touch and we can work on it together. Talking is great therapy. Your nan knew it - a problem shared is a problem halved, she'd say. Life's ups and downs continue to impact on us. Look after yourself first, so you feel you can deal with anything that comes your way.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I work as a person-centred counsellor.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
