My name is Alex and i'm a psychotherapist and counsellor based in Sydney. I received my Bachelor of Psychological Science and Master of Psychotherapy and Counselling from Western Sydney University and am currently completing a Masters in Addictive Behaviours with Monash University. I'm also a clinical member of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA).
I grew up in Western Sydney and recognised a need for change in the way we view mental health from a young age. This was particularly evident during close contact with those in the armed forces, elite athletes, those in addiction and those directly affected by the criminal justice system.
I'm the therapist and founder of alphapsych, which came about in 2019 to broaden my experience and expertise in particular areas. Alongside alphapsych, i'm also the Senior Counsellor and Psychotherapist at Foundation House - a residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation service in Sydney, targetted toward members in the construction industry.
There is a recognition that men are less likely to seek help when they are struggling mentally and may find it more difficult to find someone to speak with when they are ready to take the first step. alphapsych has been tailor made to introduce a casual introduction into therapy to assist with long-lasting change.
