About Me
Alex Crawford
Clinical Psychologist
MAPS, FCCLP, BAdvSci (Hons), BA, MClinPsych

I am passionate about working flexibly with people to assist them in better understanding their emotions and relationships, and cultivating habits that can lead to a greater sense of personal happiness and fulfilment. I place my client’s values at the center of my work with them, as these will guide the therapy process to a place that will be most beneficial for them. I aim to create a therapeutic environment that is open, accepting and compassionate, while also instilling a sense of strength in my client as an individual.

 

I have advanced training and experience working with Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and I also draw on methods from a number of other therapy styles where appropriate (see below for an extensive list). Below is also a list of the main categories of presenting problems I have worked with, however, I am constantly looking to develop new skills and experience, so if your presenting difficulties do not fall into one of these categories, this does not mean I will not be open to working with you. Please contact me and we can have a conversation to determine whether I would be a suitable therapist for you.

I have experience and an interest in working with clients from a variety of different cultural backgrounds and religious orientations, as well as members of the LGBTI community.

Anxiety  -  Depressed mood  -  Bipolar  -  Panic attacks  -   Adult ADHD  -  Complex trauma  -  Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)  -  Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)  -  Relationship problems  -  Grief  -  Adjustment difficulties  -  Family conflict  -  Personality difficulties  -  Coping with chronic health issues
