"Alex showed me hot to like myself, begin to like myself as a transwoman 4.5 years into my journey. I'd become lost, scared, worried and broken by life. Alex has begun to give me the potion to become magical. In a world where the mirror was an enemy, she gave me the armour to understand.

"I did talk therapy for a few months with Alex and, from the first phone call until the end, I felt at ease in her presence and able, for the first time, to properly let go and talk to someone about how I was feeling. Alex is an excellent listener and asks insightful questions. She helped me to understand myself better, leading to real positive change in my personal and work relationships and I truly feel more at peace than I have done in a long time. I highly recommend Alex!"

“I decided to see Alex after 5 years of suffering with anxiety. I had been through the NHS route, but I was still unable to manage my symptoms. I was struggling to cope, taking months out at a time, unable to function with the at times, crippling anxiety. I felt really scared at what my future was looking like.
Alex came in and was so kind and easy to talk to, she made the whole scary process feel safe. After around a month or two of seeing her once a week not only did I notice a difference in myself but so did the people around me. I already knew of the tools to overcome anxiety, but I didn’t have any confidence in that I was actually capable of helping myself. Alex empowered me to see the light, and made me aware that I was strong enough to pull myself out. She allowed me to see things from a more positive, hopeful point of view and really changed my whole mindset. Enabling me to not only be kinder to myself but to overcome those times of panic, each time feeling stronger and more capable for the next.
She really has changed my life and I am so grateful for her on so many levels. I can not recommend her enough. “

"I was nervous before my first counselling session, but working with Alex was a very positive experience. She is extremely easy to communicate with, and made me feel relaxed and comfortable immediately.
Through incisive but gentle questioning she helped me change the way I think about many things, and through clear explanation she helped me to understand why I was feeling as I did.
I now have a greater awareness, and control, of my thought processes and emotions, and this has enabled me to become a lot less anxious and a more confident person.
I am very grateful for the help Alex gave me."

"Sessions with Alex were very helpful in helping me to understand myself better and were an instrumental first step to bringing my anxiety under control, as well as identifying the underlying causes."
- Client CS, July 2022
"Without me realising, Alex quickly earned my complete trust and confidence due to her skill, professional sympathy & understanding which allowed me to continue to explore and discuss possible reasons for my long-term depression and therefore help me to benefit more quickly from my visits.
Rather than dreading these sessions (as I had anticipated) I was willing and “almost” looking forward to being able to openly discuss and face the issues that had troubled me in the short, medium and immediate term".

"I feel as though I have got my life back again. I was so muddled and confused and Alex helped me so much. Just talking it through with her helped me to see a way through it."
- Client JC, Oct 2021
"Alex is a patient and caring person. I always felt settled and ready to talk when I saw her even when I thought I did not want to."
- Client SH, June 2020
"I found Alex's relaxed approach calming. I was going through a really difficult time when I went to see her and felt able to finally open up."
- Client NL, August 2020
"I undertook a short period of talk therapy with Alex about a year or so ago, at a time when I really needed some additional help. I found Alex very easy to get along with and felt comfortable and at ease during the sessions, almost immediately. Alex is a great listener, but was also able to challenge and probe during the sessions, which helped with my thought processes at the time. I definitely came away from each session feeling better about things and across the time I spent with Alex I started to see significant improvements in how I felt. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alex and I couldn't praise Alex's work highly enough."
