About me

You are not alone right now if you're feeling anxious and overwhelmed. It's understandable to be confused and panicky in these very uncertain times. Talking to a professional can help you make sense of what to focus on to feel better and stay well.

managing worries * calming mind & body * introduction to mindfulness * establishing a self care routine

My name is Alex Pledger and I’m a counsellor and life coach. I help people work out what they’re feeling, how their thoughts are affecting their mood and behaviour and help find ways to make positive changes. I practice in an integrative way which means I combine various counselling approaches to get the best fit for the problems you are bringing. I'll listen and ask questions without judging you, but if something is holding you back, then we might tackle it together, either by talking, or doing a written exercise, or with homework between sessions. My style is down to earth. Although the process of therapy can feel strange at first, I try to make our sessions feel as normal as possible... a two way dialogue about the things that really matter to you.

I am currently working online, offering sessions via video.

Here's what one of my clients said about working with me: "Alex has a lovely steady, calming manner and makes you feel at ease. I found it amazing when she would summarise what I said ... I wanted to shout "yes, that's it, you've got it!" To find someone who could make sense of the mess in my head was such a relief. She has an ability to interpret what you are saying with such accuracy, sensitivity and gentleness. Following my sessions with Alex, I feel like a different person." (testimonial by C.S)

If you would like to book an initial session or have any questions please get in contact.
