A bit about me

My name is Alex (she/her) and I am a qualified integrative counsellor working near Canterbury. I am a neurodivergent practitioner with an eclectic cultural background. I believe that great power is held by how we tell our stories, how we shape them, and how they shape us.

I offer a safe confidential space to tell your story and to slow down and take time to hold and explore what matters to you. Showing up for oneself can be challenging task and I will accompany you on your journey[1] with empathy, understanding, and openness.

Every person is unique, and I aim to tailor my approach to your needs. I provide individual therapy to adults in a face-to-face setting at my home practice in Chartham (East Kent) as well as some Walk and Talk sessions in Canterbury. In some cases, I may also offer sessions over Zoom.


My therapeutic orientation is steeped in humanistic tradition of person-centred therapy, transactional analysis, and Gestalt, as well as attachment theory. My working style is based on transparency and open dialogue. I gladly share psychoeducation and hope to provide you with tools that will be helpful to you in the future beyond our time together. I work in line with the ethical framework of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy of which I am a registered member.


I am in the early stages of incorporating geek therapy into my practice, which I hope to firm up in not-too-distant future. I will also be offering walk and talk sessions soon!

So, let’s go towards the warmth together.

[1] I really hoped I could avoid the word ‘journey’. It’s a bit of a cliché but it can’t be helped. It really is a journey ☺️
