The Mindful Therapist specialises
in the treatment of anxiety disorders, stress, recurrent depression and addictions.
Hi, I'm Alex a Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist and Mindfulness Teacher living in West Wimbledon. I help clients manage and overcome a wide range of emotional and mental health issues. I am passionate about well-being and run a practice based on kindness, compassion, empathy and integrity.
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy and Mindfulness-Based Therapies are very effective at treating anxiety disorders. I use the most evidence-based methods in psychotherapy to help clients reduce and manage their levels of anxiety whether they are experiencing general anxiety, performance anxiety or a very specific anxiety like a phobia. As the symptoms of anxiety can vary considerably from person to person treatment plans are always tailored specifically to an individual's needs.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch for a free consultation to discuss how best I can help.
STOP IN-7 is a bespoke treatment programme designed to help you become a healthy, happy, non-smoker. Hypnotherapy has been used over the years to help people stop smoking. However, virtually all modern evidence-based approaches to smoking cessation combine elements from a wide range of different therapies, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness and Hypnotherapy, into a whole package. This approach will give you the best chance to not only quit the habit but more importantly make sure you stay a non-smoker.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is an 8-week programme designed specifically to help people who are prone to recurring depression. MBCT combines mindfulness techniques like meditation, breathing exercises and gentle yoga, with elements from cognitive therapy to help break the negative thought patterns that are characteristic of recurrent depression.
MBCT is recommended by NICE as an effective treatment for people who suffer from recurrent episodes of depression. Evidence shows that MBCT can, on average, reduce the risk of relapse of recurrent depression by 43%.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) is an 8-week evidence-based programme that offers secular, intensive mindfulness training including techniques such as meditation, gentle yoga and mind-body exercises to assist people with stress, anxiety and pain. After engaging in an MBSR course participants have reported feeling more energised and engaged in their work, less anxious, as well as sleeping better and displaying fewer physical symptoms of stress.
