HELLO! Welcome to my website and thank you for visiting. My name is Alexia and I am a professionally qualified counsellor.
I have experience of working with children, young people and adults and I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). This means that I am bound to their strict Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. This stipulates that I maintain client confidentiality and attend regular supervision of my clinical practice. I adhere to these standards conscientiously in order to provide my clients with an ethically sound and professional service. It is important to me that you have confidence in who you are coming to see before we begin our counselling relationship.
As a counsellor, I work from a humanistic-integrative theoretical basis which means that I wholeheartedly believe that we all strive throughout our lives to reach our full potential as human beings. There are times, however, when it feels that an event and/or a series of experiences can contribute to effectively throwing us off that path. I seek to work with each unique client sat in front of me and to understand the world as they see it. When you are feeling emotional pain my aim is to understand what you are going through and once we are emotionally attuned, I will use my skills and experience as a counsellor to support you on your way back to where you want to be and help you to achieve your own chosen goals.
