Alexandra is a chartered Counselling Psychologist and is registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC). She completed a professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology (PsychD) at the University of Roehampton. In addition she has undergraduate and postgraduate degrees from the University of Nottingham.

Alexandra’s Approach

As a psychologist, Alexandra’s approach begins with an attitude of warmth, responsiveness and kindness. She uses collaborative enquiry to help clients to gain a greater understanding and insight into their problems. Alexandra is very aware that each client’s journey to counselling is particular to them. We may have a sense of being alone, feel hopeless, guilty or overwhelmed, but we might find it hard to pinpoint what in particular brought us here. Alternatively we may know exactly why we are here, but not have a clue what to do about it.

Alexandra’s approach recognises how different each person’s experience is and addresses this by taking an integrative approach to counselling. Drawing on her clinical expertise in humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapies, she tailors therapy to clients’ unique needs and requirements.

Alexandra’s Expertise

Before qualifying as a Psychologist, Alexandra worked in communications in the international humanitarian sector. Her work in this field led her to develop a specialist interest in Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), trauma, anxiety and depression, and she undertook specialist training in NHS services dedicated to these problems.

Alexandra has extensive experience of working with individuals who have suffered difficult and challenging circumstances in their family lives. She has also worked frequently with men and women who are survivors of emotional, physical and/or sexual abuse. Alexandra recognises the pain, anger and shame that often accompany such experiences, and how difficult it can be for clients to discuss their lives in therapy. She is continuously humbled by the bravery and capacity to heal she witnesses in her clients and feels privileged to work with them through this process.

In addition to supporting clients facing the challenges mentioned above, Alexandra also runs a practice focused on women’s mental health. She provides counselling and psychological therapy that aims to support women in their many female-centric experiences. Many of these experiences are incredibly difficult and disorientating, yet they are often swept aside and labelled “normal” simply because they are common.

Such experiences include fertility problems, miscarriage, pregnancy and fear of pregnancy and childbirth (tokophobia). Alexandra is also passionate about working with women in the post-natal period, whether it be in adjusting to a new or changing identity as a parent, working to develop self-compassion and self-care, supporting women suffering from post-natal depression or to heal and recover from a traumatic birth experience. She also provides therapy home-visits for new mums.

Alexandra sees clients who are self-funding their therapy, or paying for their therapy through their healthcare insurance. Alexandra is registered as a healthcare provider with AXA PPP, Aviva and Vitality Health.
