About me


We all have times when we struggle. Modern life is demanding and it throws us curve balls even we think we are coping. If things in your life haven't been going how you want, or you've 'kept going' but it's starting to take a toll, then it might be a good time to see if talking with a professional could help.

I have worked with clients feeling just like you are now on a whole range of issues:

overthinking and anxiety * depression and low mood * poor self-esteem * feeling tired, de-motivated and lacking a sense of wellbeing * recent or past trauma you can't get over * struggling to communicate in relationships * patterns of behaviour you can't seem to change * troubled by events from the past * stuck in negative thinking, fear and procrastination * lacking self-care habits or work/life balance

My name is Alex Pledger and I'm a counsellor, psychotherapist and coach. I've been working with clients for over 15 years to help create positive, lasting changes in their lives.

I practice in an integrative way which means I combine various approaches to get the best fit for the problems you are bringing. I draw on cognitive behavioural and solution focused therapy techniques, combined with ways to help you understand your past and what impact it might still be having on you today. My style is down-to-earth, kind but focused. Our sessions are a two-way dialogue about the things that really matter to you.

I am currently only working online only via Skype or Zoom.

Here's what one of my clients said about working with me:

"Alex has a 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)
