I am a person-centred counsellor specialising in anxiety and self-esteem, which are often related also to trauma, depression, panic and relationship issues and difficult early life experiences.
Are you exhausted by the effort it takes to manage your feelings? Do you want to feel safe? Do you wonder who you are or why you feel bad? Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, panic disorders or relationship problems, there is good news. Research has shown that a good relationship with a counsellor/therapist can really help. My approach is to help you understand both 'your hidden self' (the unconscious) and find everyday tools and tasks that can help you change your life. I hope I can show you that all the wisdom and creativity you need to enjoy your life is within reach.

I have experience with neurodiversity, anxiety, trauma and depression, and my role lecturing on a counselling degree keeps me up-to-date with the latest theory and practice.
Central to my counselling ethos is the importance of creating a safe, non-judgemental place, where you are free to be yourself, and to explore any aspect of life that is important to you. Identifying the thoughts, feelings and inner struggles that are holding you back can be daunting, but my role is to walk alongside you, enabling you to find clarity, calm, and good mental health.

I offer help with stress, depression, anxiety, and feelings of being angry, upset, stuck, or confused, and have a particular interest in making my practice autism-friendly.
Psychodynamic psychotherapeutic counselling has a distinct focus on events which have troubled us in the past, although we might not have awareness of them, and continue to trouble us in the present often through repeated patterns. There might not be any defined areas of concern for clients, and issues can be deep-seated; however, the therapeutic relationship aims to bring these aspects into consciousness in a manageable way so that they may be worked through safely. While psychodynamic psychotherapeutic counselling is often open-ended and can span several years, short courses of six months or less have also shown to be effective.

Hello and welcome! My name is Alex and I offer in-person sessions in Reading (town centre), or online via zoom. I am a fully qualified, BACP-registered, counsellor with a proven track record of helping people work through all kinds of problems. I think that part of the problem we all share is that we grew up in a society that didn't really understand human emotions. Thus, we quickly learned that emotions are a problem and that the only proper way of dealing with them is to shut them off, brush them under the carpet and put on a brave face.

I can help people who are experiencing all levels of distress and unhappiness. You may have feelings of dissatisfaction and a sense that you are not getting all that you want in your life. At the other end of the spectrum you may be finding that every day is a real struggle with strong, even overwhelming, feelings of depression, anxiety, stress, anger etc. I believe that all of us want to strive to feel happier and more fulfilled than we currently are. We want to feel a connection with other people and to have a sense that we are leading meaningful, enjoyable lives - even when at times we feel at a loss as to how to achieve this.
