Hello, I am Alex
Hello, I am Alex
I am originally a veterinary surgeon, but my decades long interest in child psychology and development became far more pronounced once I became a parent, and has now taken over my professional life as well.
Having spent a large part of my life worrying that I wasn't doing things well enough, in parenthood I am now learning to embrace my imperfect human-ness, and I love working with other parents, helping them to discover how their own uniquely perfect imperfection is exactly what their children need to thrive.

"We felt very at ease discussing what is a very sensitive and stressful situation to us. We weren't judged and could talk openly. Very informative, knowledgable, understanding and sympathetic"
"Alex was great at catering our one-to-one session perfectly towards us and our twins. We felt totally at ease discussing all topics and certainly not judged in any sense. The open discussion really enabled us to think through the various approaches we could use in the coming weeks/months/years with Alex guiding us through the material in a totally engaging and expert manner."
