Psychotherapist and Art Therapist

MA, BA

Alexander is a registered (HCPC) Art Psychotherapist, counsellor, and clinical supervisor working in the NHS as a Specialist Clinical Practitioner for Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

He has experience working with both children and young people as well as adults and has worked in various settings including the NHS, social care, charities and regularly offers consultancy and training around wellbeing and mental health for different organisations. 

Alexander currently specialises in working with children and young people providing a safe space for clients to engage in their therapeutic process through art-making, play, or talking. He takes a client-led approach to therapy helping explore feelings and thoughts presently outside of awareness that may relate to unresolved experiences or issues. Art therapy is unique in that it provides a safe and creative way to think through and process these sometimes challenging experiences; promoting self-expression, understanding, and healing. Art therapy is a powerful psychological intervention, often meeting people in the space where words have failed, leaving creativity and expression to fill the void, through this we are able to facilitate positive change and personal growth. 

For children and young people, it is often difficult to communicate what may lie at the core of their difficulties; art play and reflection offer a way to better understand themselves, the world, and how they relate to it. For parents, he also offers meetings to discuss the child’s progress and how they can best support them outside of therapy.

Alexander also has extensive experience working with adults with a range of emotional, relational, or mental health difficulties. You do not need to be a good artist to access and benefit from art therapy; combining images and words helps to explore feelings by giving a voice to conflicts and fears that are unspeakable, painful and sometimes too traumatic to put into words. The art process helps to identify these difficulties in a sensitive, safe and confidential space exploring what may be obstructing you from reaching your full potential and working with you at a pace that is comfortable for you. 

Alexander’s approach is warm, authentic, empathic and non-judgemental. His training is in psychodynamic, psychoanalytic psychotherapy with professional interests in existential and systemic theory.
