    Therapy with Alex Taking the first steps in acknowledging that you need support doesn’t make you weak, in fact it is quite the opposite. Considering the demanding world we live in today I believe that therapy is becoming a necessity
  • Fear of the Unknown
    Fear of the Unknown Through undertaking therapy we can stretch our capacity to tolerate the moment to moment uncertainties of life. Over time you may come to embrace the ebbs and flows of life, and gain an acceptance of ‘what is’.
  • Know thyself
    Know thyself Socrates (C. 469 BC-399 BC) one of the world’s most celebrated philosophers knew the priceless value of self knowledge. In our generation self knowledge gained in therapy is yet again becoming the King of currency.

Introducing Alex Adamson

Hi, and welcome to my website. My design team and I, have tried to make my site user friendly, warm and informative. I believe that by browsing through you can get a good feel for therapy in general, as well as gaining an overview on me as a therapist (with the help of my client testimonials), some of the issues I specialise in dealing with, and also a glimpse into the theoretical orientation that underpins my practice. Feel free to browse at your leisure, and contact me if you have any further queries.

I love my work as a Psychotherapist and passionately believe that we all have the inbuilt capacity to change and overcome even the most painful of histories and live life to the fullest of our potential. However, in today’s ever changing world, huge pressures are often placed upon us by our environment, and support & acceptance can be an all too rare commodity. During my work therefore, I will endeavour to offer hope, support, guidance and increased awareness which is integral in allowing us to live a life more in touch with both ourselves, and the world of others we populate. This is achieved in part by increasing our self awareness of mind and body, which will serve to enhance your capacity for deeper, more meaningful and fluid contact with both yourself as well as others in the here and now. In less therapeutic jargon free terms I will be aiming to help you notice exactly where you are now, and attend more fully to what you are doing in the moment. This renewed focus will help you grasp how you have been structuring your life to date which will help to free you up from old blockages making you more able to step into the options available before you today with vigour.
