• 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.

Bob Marley
Bob Marley The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.
Leonard Cohen
Leonard Cohen Ring the bells that still can ring Forget your perfect offering There is a crack in everything That's how the light gets in.
Donald Winnicott
Donald Winnicott ‘A prerequisite for healthy development is the continuation of reliable holding in terms of the ever-widening circle of family and school and social life'
Desmond Tutu
Desmond Tutu Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
John Bowlby
John Bowlby Thus, just as animals of many species, including man, are disposed to respond with fear to sudden movement or a marked change in level of sound or light because to do so has a survival value, so are many species, including man, disposed to respond to separation from a potentially caregiving figure and for the same reasons
Thich Nhat Hanh
Thich Nhat Hanh People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. All is a miracle
Eric Berne
Eric Berne The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing.
Carl Rogers
Carl Rogers The facts are always friendly, every bit of evidence one can acquire, in any area, leads one that much closer to what is true.
Irvin Yalom
Irvin Yalom Despair is the price one pays for self-awareness. Look deeply into life, and you'll always find despair.
Gandhi
Gandhi Strength, The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. God, As soon as we lose the moral basis, we cease to be religious. There is no such thing as religion over-riding morality. Man, for instance, cannot be untruthful, cruel or incontinent and claim to have God on his side. Change, We must be the change we wish to see.
Carlos Castenada
Carlos Castenada A path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you . . . Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself alone, one question . . . Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn't it is of no use.
Nelson Mandela
Nelson Mandela I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
Muhammad Ali
Muhammad Ali I never thought of losing, but now that it' s happened, the only thing is to do it right. That's my obligation to all the people who believe in me. We all have to take defeats in life.
Laura Perls
Laura Perls Gestalt therapy, with its emphasis on immediate awareness and involvement, offers a method for developing the necessary support for a self-continuing creative adjustment which is the only way of coping with the experience of dying and, therefore, of living.
Kahlil Gibran
Kahlil Gibran A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain?
Viktor Frankl
Viktor Frankl “We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.”
