Hello, my name is Alex. Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile, and well done on taking this step towards finding a counsellor. It can be extremely difficult to acknowledge when we need help, but I hope you can feel some pride in yourself for being brave enough to take this first step on your mental wellness journey.
I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor working in an integrative way. What this means is I combine tools and techniques from a number of therapeutic approaches, to best suit you as an individual. I view counselling as a collaborative process, where we work together to support you in the best possible way. I am happy to work with you towards short-term goals, or to explore your past in more depth to understand how certain relationships and events may be affecting you in the here-and-now.
I have spent the last few years working in health and social care, supporting individuals with severe mental health issues. I strive to take a compassionate and empathetic approach, and to always create a safe and comfortable space for you to explore whatever is going on for you. I will always attempt to understand the world as you see it, and to help you make any changes you want to make.
I am currently offering online and telephone sessions, at a rate of £40 per session.
- Qualifications & ExperienceI have a Level 5 Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I also have a degree in psychology from the University of Glasgow, and a Level 3 diploma in Health and Social Care.
