About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Alex. Thank you for visiting my profile and considering me as your therapist. I offer one to one counselling to adult women and men.
You may be here because you are facing issues that are affecting your peace of mind. Whatever the reason you are seeking help, I offer sensitive understanding, respect, empathy and integrity. In our sessions together you have a confidential and safe space to explore your situation and feelings.
I am by nature a good listener, compassionate and don't tend to judge. Finding the right counsellor for you is an important first step towards better mental and emotional wellbeing. I offer a free initial session. This first session gives the opportunity to look at how we can work together and explore the reasons that have brought you to counselling. We look at what you want to achieve from counselling.
I appreciate that making contact can feel daunting. I welcome an initial phone enquiry and this often results in clients feeling more relaxed and enabled to make the decision to try counselling.
Professional, qualified and insured, holding a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, I am also a registered member of the BACP. My approach is Person Centred. I have a down to earth style and jargon free way of working. In the simplest sense I walk besides you in a journey of healing.
Counselling is a rare vocation where all of life's experience - the ups and the downs, the good and the bad, the pleasurable and painful, the births and the deaths, good health and bad health, successes and challenges - is relevant and can inform the counsellor in his work with clients. In addition to the formal counselling qualifications I have a wealth of life experience - this helps me in seeing things from the clients point of view.
