• 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.

Ken Evans
Ken Evans "Live life fully Love generously & Become all that you can be."
Jan Smuts
Jan Smuts “When in doubt, do the courageous things”
Henri Bergson
Henri Bergson "Homo sapiens, the only creature endowed with reason, is also the only creature to pin its existence on things unreasonable."
Arnold R Beisser
Arnold R Beisser "Briefly stated, the paradoxical theory of change is this: that change occurs when one becomes what he is, not when he tries to become what he is not. Change does not take place through a coercive attempt by the individual or by another person to change him, but it does take place if one takes the time and effort to be what he is -- to be fully invested in his current positions."
Kierkegaard
Kierkegaard "A man who as a physical being is always turned toward the outside, thinking that his happiness lies outside him, finally turns inward and discovers that the source is within him."
Otton Rank
Otton Rank "The new meaning of soul is creativity and mysticism. These will become the foundation of the new psychological type and with him or her will come the new civilization."
Kurt Lewin
Kurt Lewin "If you want to truly understand something, try to change it."
Edmund Husserl
Edmund Husserl "Philosophers, as things now stand, are all too fond of offering criticism from on high instead of studying and understanding things from within."
Jacob Moreno
Jacob Moreno “In 1912, I attended one of Sigmund Freud’s lectures as the students filed out, he singled me out from the crowd and asked me what I was doing. I responded, well, Dr. Freud, I start where you leave off. You meet people in the artificial setting of your office. I meet them on the street and in their homes, in their natural surroundings. You analyze their dreams. I give them the courage to dream again. You analyze and tear them apart. I let them act out their conflicting roles and help them to put the parts back together again”.
