My Approach

Integrative Counsellor and Psychodynamic Psychotherapist.

About Me

About me

I'm Alex, an experienced psychotherapist and Counsellor offering a supportive space in Cornwall, South West, Paddington, London and online sessions for Tottenham/Edmonton, North London.

I hold a post graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and have been practising since 2008. My experience includes a counselling role with the registered charity Freshstart Psychotherapy at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy. There I worked with clients to tackle a range of issues such as low self- esteem, depression, relationship difficulties and meeting life goals. I've also worked in a counsellor role for the charity Mind in Enfield, a GP's practise in Paddington and at The Caravan Drop-In counselling service in Green Park, London, which serves vulnerable people in the community.

I run a private practise in Truro, Cornwall, bi-monthly session in Paddington, London, as well as sessions for people seeking low cost on line sessions, living within North London and the surrounding areas.

Why seek therapy?

Everyone has their own reason for seeking someone to talk to. It might be something that seems quite tangible, like relationship problems, stress at work, bereavement, or a trauma from your past. Alternatively, it could be a general sense of unease and unhappiness, a lack of direction, and a feeling that something has to change – despite not knowing what that "something" is.

Talking to friends and relatives, even those closest to you, doesn't always soothe and strengthen in the way you need it too. This is where I come in. As a transpersonal therapist, my approach encompasses the "whole you", from your daily waking thoughts and concerns to the hidden currents of your unconscious. We'll work together at your pace, in a confidential environment, so that you can come to a new understanding of yourself and change your life for the better.

Affordability?

I can offer low cost counselling and psychotherapy at £30.00, whilst my usual fees start from £40.00 to £65.00, the latter based out of the Paddington practise. I currently have some availability with various times throughout the week. Please do feel free to email or call me with any questions or queries you may have.

The journey

From the West Country location, I'm within easy reach of Truro train station and the Paddington practise is easily accessible from Paddington main line station and underground as well as a 10 minute walk from Warwick Avenue tube station.
