About me and my therapy practice

Is it time for you to make changes? To sort out what is keeping you stuck? To let go of the past and move forward? To start living with confidence and purpose?

The good news is that I’ve helped hundreds of people who feel like you do right now... anxious or sad or confused. 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, how to make positive changes going forward. I practice in an integrative way which means I combine various counselling approaches to get the best fit for the problems you are bringing. I'll listen and ask questions to try to understand without judging you, but if some of your thoughts or behaviours are holding you back, then we might tackle them together, either by talking, or doing a written exercise, or through some homework you might be given between sessions. My style is down to earth. Although the process of therapy can feel strange at first, I try to make our sessions feel as normal as possible... a two way dialogue about the things that really matter to you.

Here's what one of my clients said about working with me: "I originally made contact looking for answers. It took surprisingly little time before I realised that it was not the answers that I was missing but the right questions. Alex acted as a facilitator for the changes I wanted to make and I found the whole experience constructive, practical and useful." (testimonial by D.H)

I offer a warm welcome to new clients at my therapy centre in Moseley B13, with daytime and early evening appointments available. We would book an initial session to see how we get on, and plan a way forward from there. If this sounds like it might be 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 balance the needs of your clients with your own well-being as a practitioner and the demands of your practice.

I am an integrative therapist with core models of person-centred, CBT & psychodynamic. I’m also familiar with brief therapy, solution-focused and existential ways of working and also work as a therapeutic coach.

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.

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. 

If you would like to find out more or set up an initial appointment please get in contact.
