About me and my therapy practice

Is it your time to change? To get clear on what you want and how to get it?  To wake up feeling confident, with a sense of purpose?

If you’re looking at this page then you know already that you want things to change. You may be fed up being anxious, or sad, or just confused about why you think the way you do.

The good news is that I’ve helped hundreds of people who feel like you do right now. My name is Alex Pledger and I’m a private counsellor working in South Birmingham. I help people work out what has gone wrong, why it might have happened and, most importantly, what needs to change to get things back on track.

My style is down-to-earth, honest and interactive. I believe that counselling is about helping people make lasting and sustainable changes and my job is to help you to do that. I'll listen to what you're telling me and ask questions to try to understand, without judging you. But if you have thoughts or beliefs or behaviours that are holding you back, then we might need to tackle those together. We can talk them through, or try some written exercises, or you may be given some homework between sessions.

I've been a counsellor for 15 years and I like to help people get results. Here's what one of my clients wrote about working with me:

"I was very sceptical about how 'talking about my problems' would help me find a solution. It was the BEST thing I've ever done. Alex did not offer me solutions but something so much better - the skills to deal with my problems rationally whilst being kind to myself." (testimonial by A.C)

I offer a warm welcome to new clients at my therapy centre in Moseley, with daytime and early evening appointments available. We would have an initial session to see how we get on, and plan a way forward from there.

If you would like to make contact to see if I might be the right person to help you, please get in touch to set up an initial appointment.

About me and my therapy practice

Good supervision is at the heart of keeping us safe and sane as therapists. It is where you talk about balancing the needs of your clients with your own well-being as a practitioner and meeting the demands of your practice.

My focus area is helping therapists who are new or experienced in private practice. In addition to clinical supervision, I offer a mentoring service to therapists new to private practice and run the West Midlands BACP Private Practice Networking Group which brings local therapists together to support and learn from each other. 

I am an integrative therapist so my core models are person-centred, CBT & psychodynamic. I’m also familiar with brief therapy, solution-focused and existential ways of working.

As your supervisor I aim to:

help you understand your clients, the issues they are presenting and effective ways you could help * relate your practice to theory, signpost to research & resources and encourage you to keep learning * find your way through the accreditation process, or make decisions about further training & CPD * stay true to the values, principles and moral qualities that motivated you to become a therapist * support you in looking after yourself with compassionate self-care & a healthy work-life balance

I work with qualified counsellors, from newly practising through to more experienced and accredited.
