About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I am Alex, a fully qualified Gestalt Psychotherapist and Coach, with over 10 years of experience working with clients in private practice, agency work and within the NHS system.

I offer a creative, authentic and personable approach to counselling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families in Central and East London, or online via Zoom (currently online is the only option I can offer).

What sort of things do people work on in therapy with me?

Challenging life transitions, difficulties in work, love or family relationship issues, anxiety, panic attacks or depression - these are some of the experiences people have come to me with and found our work helpful.

Whether it is personal growth or a specific difficulty you want to work on, we can explore the options and arrangement that will work for you in our initial consultation.

It is a big step to start counselling or therapy - often it’s a difficult decision to even come to a first session. Using the support of a therapist does not mean you are ill or dysfunctional, on the contrary, it means you have a healthy sense of what you might need.

Any place is a good place to start from, and your questions, doubts or reservations are very welcome in my practice.

About my approach and how I work

The therapy style I offer will be slightly different with each person; you will get me, responding to you, rather than a fixed school of thought or technique.

In our work we will also pay attention to what happens in the room between us as well as make links to the larger circumstances of your life including your history, when useful.

I offer therapy, coaching and counselling in English or German.

Ich biete Therapie und Coaching auch auf Deutsch an.

My first session

The next step for you:

I would like to invite you to book an exploratory session without further commitment, in which we can discuss your reasons for coming, what you are looking for and get to know each other a little. This will help both of us decide if and how we want to work together and for you to decide whether therapy in general, and with me in particular, is the right choice for you at this point in your life. If not, I am happy to guide you in other directions or send you some references.

Please contact me via email to alex@thelondonpractice.org to arrange an initial consultation.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer relational supervision for therapist, coaches, anyone leading a team or working in a one-to-one supporting role, online via Zoom.

I have a particular interest in supporting newly qualified therapists and coaches in the early stages of their private practice and developing their own professional style and identity.

I also enjoy supporting managers and leaders, who themselves support people in a one-to-one setting or run small groups, in finding a different perspective within their organisation and to understand their own role and relationships dynamics.

Practice description

Why supervision?

Many therapists and coaches enjoy learning from a variety of approaches, and my supervision, while grounded in my Gestalt therapy training, also includes systemic thinking, influences from existential and spiritual practices as well as a focus on embodied experience.

My approach

Rather than from one fixed school of thought, my supervision approach is relational, which means the focus of our work will be on exploring and better making sense of what might be happening between you and your client, and how this is affected by the wider context for both of you. We will also apply the same lense to our supervision work together, aiming to find new possibilities where stuck or learn new things about yourself through these relationships.

Fees

The fee for a 60-minute individual supervision session is £70, they can be arranged flexibly. If you are interested in group supervision, please let me know. Once a group of 2-3 people has formed, we can discuss the length/frequency of the sessions and fees per person.

Please visit my website for more information about me and my experience.

My first session

During our first meeting, we will talk about the requirements and needs you have for supervision, your previous experiences as well as practical details and our understanding of how we might work together, to see if we are a suitable 'fit'. This first meeting is free.

In supervision we can work together e.g. on topics like:

  • how to grow your practice and finding your ‘niche’
  • adapting safely and ethically to various contexts (agencies, short-term work, businesses)
  • practical issues such as marketing, rooms, insurance, data protection
  • your feelings about money, charging fees, and making the transition from unpaid work
  • self-confidence and 'not feeling ready'
  • how to incorporate creative experiments into your existing approach
  • explore counter-transference and difficult feelings that arise in your work
  • identifying your strengths, vulnerabilities and growing edges
  • managing risk and boosting your self-support
  • developing your own style - incorporating new approaches or letting go of old ones

Please contact me directly via email to alex@thelondonpractice.org.
