• 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’.

Cognitive and Behavioural Therapies

Behavioural Therapies are based on the way you think (cognitive) and/or the way you behave. These therapies recognise that it is possible to change, or recondition, our thoughts or behaviour to overcome specific problems.

Gestalt Therapy

Gestalt is represented strongly in only a few cities in the United States – mainly New York and Cleveland – but is a method of choice in many other parts of the world including Australia and Europe but in particular in Germany and Austria, where it has its roots – alongside most all forms of psychotherapy.  Gestalt descends from the methods of psychoanalysis of Dr. Sigmund Freud and – to a lesser degree – C.G. Jung, and the founder of Gestalt therapy, Dr. Friedrich (Fritz) Perls, was himself a physician and psychoanalyst like Freud.  But he felt some things had to change to make the therapy more effective and realistic.
