• 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.

Allan Schore Right brain to right brain therapy exploring the 3 R’s of relationality, regulation of affect, and resilience
Aristotle
Aristotle One must do good, rather than merely being good. Until you prove your goodness by helping others, your goodness means precisely nothing to the world.
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."
Bob Marley
Bob Marley The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.
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.
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.
Che Guevara
Che Guevara Silence is argument carried out by other means.
Dalai Lama
Dalai Lama If you wish to experience peace, provide peace for another. If you wish to know that you are safe, cause another to know that they are safe. If you wish to better understand seemingly incomprehensible things, help another to better understand. If you wish to heal your own sadness or anger, seek to heal the sadness or anger of another.
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.
