Alexander Duffield

BACP Accredited Practitioner

About me

I work in a supportive and collaborative way. I help individuals to take a step back and look at their thoughts and feelings. This helps them to remember rather than re-live painful experiences. This mourning process enables individuals to then make more rewarding and fulfilling life choices more suited to their present circumstances.

I qualified in 2006, became accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) in 2011 and have been working full time as a counsellor since 2011. I have a particular interest in trauma and how it can lead to us feeling cut off from ourselves and others as well as to disabling anxiety.

I have considerable experience of working with adults who suffered trauma. I worked at Hospice in the Weald as a paid counsellor for 3 years. So I have experience of supporting people who are living with illness as well as the bereaved. I also worked as a counsellor at SurvivorsUK a charity supporting men who have been sexually violated at any point in their lives for 5 years. In addition, I have worked as an 'employment assistance' counsellor for 2 years supporting people facing work related problem or issues which affect their work.

I am an approved counsellor with Aviva, PruHealth and WPA. Please contact your insurer about how to claim.

I am committed to working in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental way and follow the code of ethics of the BACP.

Days working at the practices:



Although Therapport Limited, the owner of the practice, is thorough in checking the qualifications, insurance and professional registration of each of our practitioners, the relationship is ultimately between the client and the practitioner themselves. Therapport Limtied provides space for clinicians and is not responsible for the clinical work they provide. Alexander Duffield is a BACP Accredited Practitioner, therfore the complaints should be direct to British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
