Philosophy and style of working:
Alexandra believes we all have a unique way of being in the world informed by our individual experience and while her core approach is psychodynamic, she will integrate different approaches and techniques as appropriate, working creatively alongside her clients to achieve their objectives. She offers a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space in which to explore your internal world and how this might impact your interactions and way-of-being with a view to finding freedom from self limiting beliefs and patterns of behaviour. Her aim is to support her clients as they work through their issues to find clarity, meaning and purpose, facilitate change and fulfil potential.
Following an initial consultation, Alexandra offers weekly 50 minute sessions for both short-term and open-ended therapy.
