I was having issues with my partner that almost led to a relationship breakdown. I rung Alva I was desperate for help and he managed to see us the following day. He was very professional and also funny and made us feel at ease. He took his time to listen to our issues and work things through one by one. After the session, we realised how much we needed a third party intervention as it helped us place things into perspective. Things are going great now, we no longer argue we have “honesty time”. I definitely recommend this service! Thank you More...

My first time meeting with a Spell caster and I have to say, it's really worth it. It had been 6months since my husband left me without saying anything. All thanks to Dr Tunde I was able to connect with my husband again with his powerful reunion love spell and now he loves me more than he used to. Eternally grateful with The Great Dr tunde I highly recommend, His contact details babatundesolutioncentre1@gmail.com or on his WhatsApp number +2348143581382 More...

Tracking your partner's phone is a very bold step to take because after getting what you have been searching for, it will make you very sad when you get to see all your partner has been doing behind your back. I know this because i have been in this situation and i was strong enough to get through with it and i don't regret decision to go through with it.

My interest in counselling and psychotherapy was born out of a genuine passion for helping people to find ways of living an emotionally healthy and fulfilled life. I believe we all have the resources to overcome whatever difficulties we may be experiencing. I work hard to offer an environment that encourages personal growth.

What I love most about my job, is being a counsellor who helps people to explore their feelings and emotions that are often related to their experiences. This allows clients to reflect on what is happening to them and consider alternative ways of doing things. As a therapist, I will not give advice, but will help my clients to make their own choices. Also working in a confidential setting, where I can listen attentively to all my clients. Which will then give them time to open up. This also leads to trust and respect. My aim is reduce confusion and increase their ability to cope with challenges and to make positive changes in their life.

What inspired me to start my own business would be the love and passion working with people from all walks life. Also over the year I have had a number of issues that has needed psychological intervention. Which helped me to grow as a person. This in turn lead me into becoming a qualify therapist.

My approach towards treating my clients is a combination of counselling, cbt and complimentary therapy which collectively helps in bringing that much needed mental and physical balance, irrespective of what kind of psychological issues you are facing. I aim to revive my clients from the current positions in their lives, and channelizing their negative energy to its way out in a well coordinated manner. It helps bring in the much needed harmony in their lives.

In my experience, I have worked with hundreds of clients from all walks of life, which has provided with a deep insight and practical view of the problems that people are facing in these contemporary times, with regards to their professional and personal life. Whether it is depression due to lack of respect and recognition at work, death of close family member, emotional distress due to separation, addiction, hypersensitivity, obsessive compulsive disorder, hyperactivity, sex addiction, loss of job, phobias or just any other issues that is affecting your mental health negatively


Our services work by giving you space to talk about your thoughts, feelings and behaviour with some who is professionally trained to help you understand these things better, and help you find ways to change the things.

We use a number of different therapies, from C.B.T to Phobias. Each type of talking therapies has it's own theory about why we think and the way we do, and how it's best to help you.
