About me.

In my early years I was with a Community Theatre Group where I taught young people circus skills as well as theatre skills. I toured in the UK and Spain demonstrating these skills in various setting and using theatre as a mentoring tool throughout secondary school.

Latterly, for several seasons, I have been a mentor and sailing instructor to groups of young people who may have emotional and behavioral issues(the crew!) aboard a tall sail training ship.I qualified at the University of the West of England with a special interest in the Humanistic approach to counselling. I am currently counselling in a secondary school and also in a further higher education setting. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)and follow their ethical framework for good practice.

"I came to Alex when I had run out of options, and I was only spiralling further and further down. Alex didn’t lift me up, he passed me the ladder and helped me climb up with his help, and he really helped me a lot. What I discovered is that therapy isn’t magic. You have to let your guard down and allow your emotions to run free. Only then can you ever make progress. But I urge whoever may be reading this to give it a try. You’ll be glad of it in the end."
"Alex supported me through a difficult time in my life and help me manage many difficult thoughts and feeling. I am very grateful for his warm supportive help."
"I found working with Alex incredibly valuable in terms of increasing my self awareness on how to improve my self esteem. My self esteem in particular has been a big contributor to my struggle of forming any true romantic relationship in life."
"I found working with Alex incredibly valuable in terms of increasing my self awareness on how to improve my self esteem. My self esteem in particular has been a big contributor to my struggle of forming any true romantic relationship in life. I knew I wanted to improve my self esteem but didn't know some parts of myself well enough. I didn't understand where the low self esteem came from despite having what most would consider a very good life and lots going for me. Alex really helped focus on finding the problems with his incredible listening and conversation skills. The realisation of where my struggles came from made so much sense, through early experiences (significant but perhaps forgotten) and existing behaviours. Understanding more about where the struggle came from helped me to consider actions to improve. In addition I feel I can talk openly to Alex in my sessions. He's extremely easy to talk to and professional. I feel safe sharing my authentic self, which I feel even more empowered to share with others."
Thank you Alex for all your help.
