Approach

Alex has a number of special interests and has worked with many different presentations of need, but her passion and dedication to supporting families remains the same for all. Alex enjoys being creative in her work, drawing from a variety of models and thinking ‘outside the box’ to engage clients, such as including their pets in sessions! She is experienced and happy to work with children/young people individually and, or, with parents or families together. Alex combines a collaborative and PACEful approach (Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy) in working with families to nurture relationships and improve emotional health and wellbeing.
