About Alex

Alex Dixon, Psychotherapist


My Approach

My core training is as an Integrative Psychotherapist, meaning that I evolved my own way of working with individual clients that called on influences from different traditions and philosophies. I have been influenced by the person-centred tradition, by Transactional Analysis, and by psychodynamic thinking and perspectives. I place great importance on the nature of the working relationship between me and my clients and pay attention to how it evolves.

In recent years I have been training in Group Analysis, which follows earlier training in other ways of working therapeutically in groups.

My Experience

I have gained experience of working with individuals and groups in a variety of settings:

  • long-term psychotherapy in private practice
  • short-term counselling  in private practice
  • NHS counselling for people referred by their GPs
  • staff counselling in an NHS hospital
  • employee assistance counselling for business employees
  • facilitating counselling groups
  • conducting psychotherapy groups in the NHS
