Alex Monk Therapy in London

Hello and welcome. I’m Alex, a fully qualified and accredited psychotherapist, art therapist and counsellor with a practice in Hackney, East London.

There are many reasons why you may be thinking about psychotherapy or counselling. You may wish to talk about feeling anxious, depressed 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 am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and an HCPC registered art therapist. I am also a member of The Institute of arts in therapy and education.

I have a Masters in Integrative arts psychotherapy with distinction and five years of rigorous formal training as a psychotherapist, counsellor and art therapist. My experience is diverse, having worked in NHS mental health services 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.

Perhaps the most curative aspect and the very foundation of psychotherapy is when you actually experience a felt sense that you have been heard and seen as you wish to be, not as someone else wants you to.
