Counselling in Harley Street. Qualified therapist in eating and anorexia disorders for children and adolescents.About-Alexia2.jpg

My first step into the counselling world initially began by training in group therapy with Beat, the UK's national charity for Eating Disorders. I became a co-facilitator of the Yorkshire Centre for Eating Disorders Carer's support Group soon after. It's a pleasure to continue to be involved with such a much needed and well valued organisation.

My work with Beat was the catalyst for seeking out further training in face-to-face counselling and I have experience of working in primary schools, secondary schools and sixth from colleges as well as a crisis service. I have also worked in various GP surgeries in York for the NHS and I am currently in my fifth year of working in Private Practice, dividing my time between Leeds and London.
