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 at ease, with a sense of confidence and purpose?

If you’re looking at this page then you know already that you want 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 and life coach working in South Birmingham. I help people work out what has gone wrong, why it might have happened and, most importantly, what needs to be different to get things back on track. I’ll listen to what you’re telling me and then together we will work out what needs to happen to make things better.

Counselling and coaching help with all sorts of situations:

reduce anxiety, worrying & over-thinking * relieve sadness, loss & depression * build self-esteem & confidence * manage relationships with ease & assertiveness * let go of events from your past * set goals & learn how to make them happen * plan how to create the future you want * rediscover your mojo & the keys to happiness

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)

If that sounds right for 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.
