WORKING WITH COMPANIES
The Government reported in Sept 2021 that 'poor mental health costs employers between £33 billion and £42 billion a year, and the UK economy between £74 billion and £99 billion per year'.
In addition, 1 in 6.8 people are experiencing mental health problems in the workplace (14.7%) ref*and evidence suggests 12.7% of all sickness absence days in the UK can be attributed to mental health conditions.ref**

Engaging & Practical Support
"Alex wears his expertise lightly making engagement with his deceptively simple techniques feel safe and positive. He is generous with his advice and support. I joined a session he ran for us at the NSPCC and am one of many people there who have enjoyed the opportunity to learn new ways of supporting our mental well being. Highly recommended.”
Sir Peter Wanlass - CEO NSPCC - Trustpilot

ROAD TO RELAXATION
‘Road To Relaxation’ is a one-hour workshop designed to give participants a deeper understanding of what it means to find true relaxation and its associated health benefits.
Based on the work by the American Physician Edmund Jacobson and Professor of Physiology Herbert Benson, the workshop will include a balance of practical work and education around anxiety, stress and relaxation techniques.
Relaxation training has been used as an evidence-based approach to help people cope with symptoms of anxiety and stress for many years. With AnxietyUK reporting that more than 1 in 10 people are likely to have a ‘disabling anxiety disorder’ at some stage in their life and 3 million are currently suffering from an anxiety disorder, there has never been a better time to sit back and relax.
I offer one to one and group therapy services both online and face to face to help employees address and overcome mental health issues including:
Appointments are available at various clinics across Central London including:
1 Harley Street, Bank, Canary Wharf, Notting Hill, Wimbledon and outside London at the Cowdray Therapy Rooms in West Sussex.
I also offer home visits and Online consultations.
