Counselling Psychologist providing face to face and online psychological therapy and supervision.
Welcome! I qualified as a counselling psychologist over 2 decades ago and, since that time, have been working within both the NHS and my own independent practice, helping clients to break unhelpful patterns and secure greater self awareness and agency. A warm, flexible practitioner, I will structure therapy around your own unique need and I offer both time limited contracts as well as longer term support where appropriate.
I am currently seeing clients mostly via online platforms such as Zoom and Vsee. If you are a new referral, please email me and let me know whether you are looking for face to face or online sessions. I am able to see a small number of clients face to face at my consulting room in Highgate but places are limited.
I am an approved psychology provider with all of the major health insurance companies such as BUPA, AXA, Cigna, WPA, Aviva, Pru Health and Vitality Health.

My Central London practice is in a beautiful Georgian town house overlooking The British Museum on Bloomsbury Street, London WC1.
My consulting room is on the third floor and is extremely quiet with excellent facilities. The consulting room is easily accessible from Tottenham Court Road, Holborn and Russell Square Underground stations.
My North London therapy practice is in Swains Lane, Highgate, moments from Hampstead Heath and close to both Gospel Oak rail station and Kentish Town underground station.
The practice is also easy to get to from Archway, Tufnell Park and Muswell Hill. There is street parking at the Highgate practice after 12pm.
“Thank you so very much for giving me the kind trust and support that has allowed me to explore myself and to see, accept and know myself for the first time.”
“I feel very lucky to have found a counselling psychologist like Alex and to have her in my life and I highly recommend anyone to consult her; she gives you the ability to change things for the better, and the tools to do it yourself.”
“I have recommended Alexandra's therapy service to many people, all of whom have been equally impressed. I would recommend her as a therapist with the utmost trust.”
“During a period 3 years ago, when I was suffering from terrible anxiety and obsessive thinking, I found Alexandra to be a most compassionate, resourceful, and effective therapist.”
“Over the years, Alex has helped me define and better shape who I am through CBT. She has been a pillar of strength, and I’m not sure if I would have made it through without her.”
