Alex Townshend

Psychotherapist

Alex Townshend is an Integrative Psychotherapist and an accredited member of the BACP. On this page Alex explains more about what she brings to the Green Door Clinic in London.

I use an integrative approach, which includes Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, Psychodynamic and Existential approaches alongside Mindfulness and Compassionate Focused Therapy. This facilitates a more flexible approach to the emotional/psychological problems presented, in order to give the client, the best possible talking treatment for their needs.
