• Therapy with Alex
    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.

Your input is important to me. Please provide your valuable feedback. Here are some testimonials from my past and present clients:

"One of the Biggest things I've learned and changed about myself during our work together is my propensity to 'collect stamps'. By collecting stamps and burying my pain I steadily lost my voice and will to fight back at life's many injustices which led to my severe depression and brought me to the brink of suicide. I now have my voice and strength back. I've had therapy before coming to you but I've largely felt they've been going through the motions, and I suppose I did too, i know you don't go through the motions. I feel you are extremely passionate about what you do and it shows in how you do it, you matter to me and I've felt I really matter to you too, and it makes a hell of a difference. Another thing that's really helped is your life experience, your not easily shocked. We've had some really tough sessions when I've felt at my worst and you've stayed right there with me, and then we've had some easier sessions and had a great laugh. It's like you track me closely and give me what I need, when I need it. It's like I'm saying goodbye to a best pal."

I've learned that a lot of what I did subconsciously had deep ties to my early childhood history of relationships. I've allowed people to walk all over me, as they often did in my past. I am now changing and challenging this daily and feel more proud of myself and less ashamed. I put myself first a lot more, I'm a lot more aware of how I'm acting, what I'm doing, and more aware that I can only control my reactions to life, not life itself. I have already, and will continue to recommend therapy with Alex because of how much he has helped me to change.

I've learned that I used to push a lot down, avoid things and people please. Now I'm being more selective and pleasing the right people and dealing with issues as they arise much more easily. I've also learned that I both like and need encouragement, and that I haven't give myself enough in the past or allowed others to fully support and encourage me. I'm more aware of my patterns and self in general now and I've found this place a relaxing and great environment that I've always looked forward to coming too. I've enjoyed Alex's honesty and I feel lighter in general. Highly recommended by me.

Trust was a major issue for me in deciding to start therapy. Alex made me feel at ease almost to the point that at times, it didn't feel like I imagined therapy would 'feel'. I can honestly say that I've enjoyed every session we've had, I've caught myself thinking at times 'I can't wait to tell Alex about this, or that, events which happened in between our sessions, it's been enjoyable'. I feel 100 times better as I'm ending now than I did coming in, and I know that if I ever feel the need to come again in the future that the door will always be open to me.

Alex helped me open up my mind to some of my hidden issues. By helping me to find parts of my inner self he then taught me how to deal with issues that in the past seemed insurmountable.

My first perception of counselling and psychotherapy was myself being sat in front of some sort of nutty professor being scrutinised on my behaviour,
The service which Alex offers is nothing like this and from my initial visit i was pleasantly surprised.

The setting in which the sessions take place is very home from home, very relaxed.

Alex has plenty of life experience and could relate to a lot of issues presented.

I always felt 100% better after each session and would definitely recommend this service to anyone thinking of having therapy sessions.

The immediate thing about therapy, is the tangible strength and warm understanding contact. He has a very broad and in tune knowledge of working with clients and I found this a great basis, in trusting him in our work together. I have been with him for a year now and have felt supported and cared about right the way through.

I find it easier to talk to people now, I stop and think before I make decisions instead of jumping in like I used to, or bottling things up which made me feel even more unhappy. I understand now that I can’t control everyone and everything which has helped me feel less angry and stressed, I realise now that all I can really control is how I react to whatever life brings my way. I now have a new job and new relationship and I worry less about fitting in and what other people think of me. I’m happier with me.

I have benefitted from therapy and my self confidence is higher than I can remember. Coming to these sessions have made a huge difference to my life, I socialise more and take more pride in my appearance I also take better care of myself and have a healthier lifestyle. Looking back I would never have thought I would be more positive about my life, but nowadays I am.

I feel I have benefitted a great deal from my therapy. I feel I have come a long way in the past year. I am more confident and have more self belief. I have also learned how to understand myself more and not to beat myself up over little things. Since I started therapy I haven’t self harmed any more as I have learned other less self destructive ways to deal with my anger and emotions. It has also helped me in my relationship with my partner as I no longer take it out on him, I take my issues to my therapist Alex instead.
