• 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:

"I came in sceptical and hesitant but therapy with you has exceeded my expectations and I'm surprised at how well I have responded to it. I have no sense of wanting or needing more or less of anything from our work, I am full up. I contacted you originally to help me process my painful divorce and we have done that, I no longer feel at fault, I have won. Here I am a few months after starting therapy and I am starting a new career knowing that I am going to be OK. You have helped me make the best decisions for me confidently in my life and I've learned that I am stronger than I ever thought I was. I now feel that my gut instinct is reliable and a part of me to be trusted. I no longer feel a bad person and you've helped me gain fresh perspective on why I felt bad, which allowed others to manipulate my past perception.
I feel I'm coming from a place of strength and compassion and I no longer have any fears of succeeding. You have been what feels like a really good friend to me, I am ready to go and I will miss you".

"Yes I would recommend therapy with you. You've helped me get out of the mess I was in by being in a relationship with a dangerous Narcissist partner. You helped me process through the aftermath and understand that it wasn't 'all my fault' as he insisted. I don't think I could have done it without you, I would have probably opted for strong anti-depressants and that's not the answer. I got a whole load more than I expected from you, I had internalised and believed so much of others projections onto me but I'm clearer now on what's mine & what's theirs. You've helped me over some dark things that were buried within me even through you had to drag me kicking and screaming! I struggled and didn't feel comfortable with some of the Gestalt experiments we did but afterwards I could see the benefits and it helped me flush out the 'unfinished business' as you called it. Going forward I'm glad you introduced me to the little girl in me, who still needs fun, hope and safeguarding by the protective parent that I am to my boys. I'm less reactive now and I won't waste my time on life's persecutors"

"I would recommend therapy with you and I already have to two work colleagues. You genuinely care and you are protective, respectful, non judging, honest and trustworthy. You share yourself in the interest of others like me and I can't think of anybody who wouldn't feel your humanness and who wouldn't benefit from therapy with you. Hearing your diagnosis ultimately empowered me and gave us a focus for our work. I also enjoyed the anger work with Bob which definitely helped me shift something as did the role play and 3 chair work. The support you gave me when my Grandad passed away helped me Massively in saying goodbye to him and being there for him at such an important time, you've leaned in when I've needed it most. I've also really enjoyed being able to challenge which you made safe here, I will miss you."

"I would recommend therapy with you Alex, you created such a friendly atmosphere with the fire going it became a home away from home. I've learned about dedication and I'm more confident than ever, it was a brave step for me to start therapy. I could never thank you enough for what you've done for me, it's been an incredible journey and I've changed so much".

"I've enjoyed all of our sessions, you've given me a really relaxing environment with very little distractions. I've often come away exhausted and physically hungry for some reason although looking back its more than likely because I've been here to work and put so much in. I feel I'm leaving with a lot that not only I have benefitted from but friends and others at work have also benefitted from by me sharing some of our therapy with them. I was a bit freaked out at first by the role play and chair work but once I got into it I was glad you challenged me because I loved it, I've gotten to know and like much more of me and I also got to say the things that had previously been eating away at me. By working through the break up that brought me to therapy I realise that I did my best and it wasn't good enough for her, I'm at peace with that now and feel that its her loss at the end of the day and it's worked out for the best. I've moved on slowly into a new healthier relationship with clean boundaries and it's going really well. You've been very easy to talk too and you've guided me towards my own answers. I've learned it's alright to wear your heart on your sleeve, being too proud to ask for help was hurting me. Leaving I feel It's all been beneficial and I've already recommended you too others".

"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.
