Hello and welcome. I’m Alex, a fully qualified and accredited psychotherapist and art therapist with a private practice in Clapton, East London.
There are many reasons why you may be thinking about counselling or psychotherapy. You may wish to talk about feeling anxious, low, or a relationship that is not working. Perhaps you feel unhappy at work, overwhelmed by guilt and self criticism, or feel that there is something missing in your life.
When I work with you, I provide a confidential setting and will listen without judgement to help you identify and give name to the issues that are troubling you. This process can provide a relieving sense of an emotional weight being lifted and lead to living a more creative, fulfilling life.
I have a Masters in Integrative arts psychotherapy with distinction and five years of rigorous formal training as psychotherapist, and art therapist. My experience is diverse, having worked in NHS mental health services in London for both inpatient and community settings, for charities and in private practice.
I am an external examiner at the Institute for arts and therapy in education and work as a Clinical Supervisor at Asthma UK. As part of my commitment to ethical practice and continuing professional development, I regularly evaluate my work and attend workshops and seminars.
