I can help you to move forward (thinking of a specific problem), explore problems from a different angle together or work on different issues and traumas in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Also, sometimes life is really difficult and we can't decide who we can turn to and there's sometimes no one to trust. I can help you through these difficult feelings and situations, so you can better understand yourself, others and your life.
Counselling provides space to share and to be listened to; enables you to grow and find your best potential in a non-judgemental and empathic way. Therapy is tailored to your needs and wishes and we will work together to find the most appropriate model/approach for you. Please note, I work in an integrative way which includes person-centred therapy, Gestal therapy and transactional analyses.
I have experience in helping clients with various issues such as stress and anxiety, depression, coping with addictions, attachment issues, sadness, anger, loneliness, changes in life, family conflicts, & trauma and abuse.
I am a qualified counsellor (diploma level 4 in therapeutic integrative counselling) and I completed a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. I have 3 years of experience in a clinical setting including counselling and working within a substance-misuse service. I am licensed in the UK as a Counsellor and as I'm practicing and insured in the UK my practice is governed by the English and Welsh law.
I am currently completing my MSc course in Health Psychology.
I am fully insured, DBS checked and a registered member of a professional body (BACP - British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

Dr. Kiss is a formidable therapist. For the past several months her skillful expertise has helped me unpack my emotions and guide me through a couple of months of intense family relationships. I am so very happy that I "stumbled" upon the betterhelp app (through one of my favorite podcasts) and that I was "matched' with Dr. Kiss! Thank you so much. I am so grateful and shall definitely recommend both the app and Dr. Kiss to friends and family.

I really enjoy working with Alexandra, and I feel very calm & comfortable from her demeanour. She asks questions that make me reflect and come to realisations that I wouldn't have without her. She has been very helpful, listening, and a great support to me in a period when I really needed a therapist on the sideline.

We are just a few weeks in and with my issues I think we have a while to go yet but my initial hesitation has completely gone and I look forward to our sessions. Alexandra is a good fit for me, she is empathetic, kindly but professional, and responds to me in a very timely manner too so I have been able to relax into the process.
