Am I the right therapist for you? There is no straight answer for that.
Therapists are all different individuals and although we engage in many of the same activities, we also need to build a close and harmonious relationship with clients. Therapy is about rapport and rapport is a crucial aspect of the relationship that develops between a therapist and the client(s). Rapport is essential to a positive therapist-client relationship with the goal of mutual trust and respect (the client must feel safe and relaxed). At your GP surgery you must prefer one GP over another; the same goes for choosing a therapist.
At first, a consultation would give you the opportunity to discuss your concerns, which kind of therapy (strategies that are proven by research to be most effective in any given situation) will benefit you and which plan to follow. This means that you play an active role in your therapy where you learn, practice and apply effective life skills and will also have the opportunity to “check the fit" and ask any questions you might have.
For this reason I propose an hour “introductory meeting" at a special rate of £18. My appointments are also available in the evenings and on Saturdays.
I wouldn't be here if I didn't have the right experience and qualifications. My qualifications encompass many different techniques and it is with this recognition that with my experience you will feel the benefits.
Should if you wish to check my credentials and my qualifications please look at my website, testimonials on the Internet or feel free to enquire with me.

I've had panic attacks for several years. I saw doctors and specialists too and their only interest was to prescribe me drugs. Alfredo was the FIRST person to explain to me why I was having panic attacks. I am so happy to be my old self again.

It is not often that you meet a professional who truly cares and goes the extra mile to look after you and improve your wellbeing. Alfredo is someone on whom clients can consistently rely and he provides genuine kindness, compassion and generosity. He is someone that relates to people with incredible ease, has the ability to maintain an empathic and open stance while still holding to the highest professional and ethical standards. I was uffering from depression, anxiety and PTSD. I couldn't sleep, wasn't able to function properly at work and my marriage was falling apart. I am not the person who wopuld ever speak to a psyhcologist but Alfredo's empathetic, caring and non-judgemental approach helped me to open up to him and develop a trusting relationship. Thank you Alfredo for helping me through a terrible time.

"I experienced many different therapies over the last 40 years, but my traumas, wounds and pain were healed by Alfredo. I had low-self esteem, depression, crippling episodes of arthritis, high blood pressure, suicidal thoughts and I usually put myself last when it came to pleasing family and friends. I consider myself very fortunate to have come across Alfredo. Without him I probably not be so sure that I would be here to give my acknowledgment to his services. Having someone like Alfredo to talk to on a regular basis has allowed me to feel that my life mattered. Alfredo has the wonderful ability to talk to me formally and informally and to modify my distorted points and views. He has been able to reflect back to me positive thoughts that I was unable to see about myself at that time. With a series of new perceptions, I gradually began to change; I started feeling better and healthier than I have felt in many years. This is only in just over three months of therapy. I am relaxing on holiday now and will not be seeing Alfredo until mid-February 2015."
"I generally tend to make comments when I am upset with a service or a product. I suppose it is easier to make a complaint as anger takes over our emotions. I am making an effort to do the opposite because I am utterly pleased and relieved that Alfredo has been able to resolve my personal issues where others have failed. I’ve engaged into therapy since beginning of 2011 and have changed therapists twice. During this time there have been some improvements but none as successful or efficient as the last five meetings I have had with Alfredo. On our first meeting Alfredo said “You might not ‘click’ very well with one therapist but feel very comfortable with another”. While I felt comfortable with the others I believe that Alfredo approach to therapy is somewhat different. It might be down to experience or to his many different approaches but he proved to me that his handling gave positive results. It is a big thank you from me."
