Hi, I'm Alex. My therapeutic approach is based on the belief that we all have the capacity to develop, grow and change. Therapy can help this process by identifying the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that hold us back, and providing the time and space to explore them. I am trained in integrative counselling which means I draw upon a variety of methods to suit your individual needs. I work from a relational perspective where empathy and non-judgement are central parts of the process. I also incorporate existential ideas which look at how we see ourselves in the world, where we derive meaning from and how to approach adversity.

Hello! I work in Clapham, Wimbledon and online. I believe that there are times in life when we need someone to turn to, who can help us make sense of things and cope with difficult feelings or situations. I'm here to offer that support. I provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where my clients feel listened to and held, supporting the exploration of problems, challenges and feelings which may be difficult to talk about. At the heart of my practice is the belief that you have the inner resources to implement change. I am here to facilitate that through our work together.

The World today makes increasing demands on the individual and at times it almost seems to be shouting at us. Anxiety levels are at record highs. More than ever people need to be true to their own unique path in life and articulate their own meaning. Not having this can lead to unhappiness and depression. My approach is spiritual rather than religious, but I believe we have to know ourselves on a deeper level to live to our full potential. This involves understanding our childhoods, being in touch with our dreams and above all being able to live fully in the present

You are most probably working through a series of profiles, getting increasingly baffled. I feel your pain! I work with clients suffering from anxiety, depression, those facing an ending, or a new beginning, or sometimes those that just feel 'off' or lost. Therapy, and finding a safe space to explore your worries can be genuinely life changing: we can talk about your goals and expectations of therapy and your life. This space can help you to trust in yourself, and to empower you. I really believe in talking therapy and providing kinship. I have a special interest in grief and bereavement.

At times, we all feel overwhelmed, uncertain or stuck, and have a sense that there is more out there and within us, to be discovered and brought to life, than we are engaging with. The aim of my therapy sessions is to enable you to get back in touch with yourself.

I offer short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy for a wide range of emotional and psychological difficulties. Using an integrative approach, I draw from a range of psychological theories depending upon your particular needs and goals. For instance, we might work together to understand how your early life experiences and important relationships have affected you and might be contributing to your current difficulties. Alternatively, you might be suffering from anxiety, low mood or stress and want to find a way out of this. Perhaps you just want an opportunity to speak and be heard.

These are some of the things people may be thinking or saying when they decide to seek professional support: "I experience awful feelings of panic." "I feel anxious a lot of the time. "I feel tearful a lot." "I can feel angry all day and it feels bad." "Life appears very confusing and complicated" I offer professional counselling, support and strategies to help you navigate your way through whatever your issues may be, already in the first session. I hold a professional psychotherapy diploma from the Human Givens Institute. This approach helped a family member with anxiety very much which is why I chose to train in it also.

I offer a warm, holding and confidential space for you to explore what may be troubling you. Some of the focus may be early significant relationships. These can set up unconscious templates that replay throughout life until understood and resolved. They tend to show up in current relationships and attitudes to life. There will also be space for the hopes and dreams that you have for your life and how to work towards them.

Does a relationship in your life cause you pain? Are you feeling stuck and unsure what to do? It could be that things are difficult with your partner or ex, parent or caregiver, colleague or friend. Maybe it's the relationship you have with yourself that gets you down. Relationships can be sources of love, support and nourishment but might also cause you to feel anxious, confused, and in turmoil. If this is your experience, we can work through these feelings together. I strongly believe everyone has a voice that deserves to be heard and I've seen how life changing having a safe space to talk things through without judgment can be.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
