What I Have Found to Be Most Helpful:

- An educational approach that is engaging and easy to understand.

- Sessions are conducted in a positive, upbeat mood because we learn better when we are feeling good rather than bad. 

- The emphasis is always on the present moment and how you want your life to be now and going forward.

- Sessions are practical and give you insights, understandings and skills that make a genuine difference in your life.

Maybe you have been to your GP and tried medication CBT or counselling already

Unfortunately, for many people medication is ineffective or causes too many side-effects, like leaving them feeling numb or taking away their libido.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Counselling can help for some people, but for many these approaches do little.

CBT can take a long time and unfortunately mainstream services often lack personalisation to your specific situation and circumstances, which takes away their value.

Counselling can involve talking for many weeks about your past and understanding why you’re anxious but unfortunately this doesn’t necessarily change anything, and can even lead some people to feel worse afterwards.

I can help show you much quicker and more effective ways of overcoming anxiety.

What People Say

I worked with Alastair on my deep rooted fear of being judged and rejected. His approach to helping me with this was unique and in the end transformative. Alastair met me with an incredibly engaging curiosity and presence that I've rarely experienced in my life, which left me feeling heard, understood and validated. At the same time he managed to make what was a overwhelming and heavy subject for me feel easy, comfortable and even enjoyable at times to work through and process. I can highly recommend working with Alastair if you want to overcome fears and internal obstacles getting in the way of your personal growth and development.read more

Before a the session with Alastair, I have a lot of mental issues mainly due to self doubt, anxiety and insecurity, I was in deep trouble and didn't think I can get out of that. But after only one session with Alastair and following his instructions in during the session, I was able to almost change my situation in just 3 weeks. His instructions were very simple, easy to understand but they are totally effective. When we got to the follow-up session, I no longer feel anxious or insecure in social situations anymore, fears of judgement are gone. I am actually more active after 3 weeks and I can see myself getting more comfortable in the future. I am really grateful for this experience and if someone ask me to recommend a mindset coach, I would definitely refer to him right away.Thank you Alastair!read more

Alastair has recently been helping me work though some issues related to poor sleep.This type of thing is quite new to me so initially I was a little apprehensive, however I have found the sessions to be very relaxed. He's easy to talk to, and always communicates well. He clearly has a genuine interest in solving the issues and his suggestions and ideas are always considered.Thanks Al!read more

In the current world climate my anxiety has left me unable to function. I had a session with Alastair via video link. I wasn’t sure I could even explain what was going on in my mind but as the session went on it was like he knew exactly what was going on in my mind. It has helped a lot and I know I have some way to go but I just can’t recommend Alastair enough. He has truly helped to retrain my mind. Thank you Alastair.read more

After just three online sessions with Al, a chronic physical health condition that had dogged me for 16 years, having a major impact on my quality of life and career, suddenly became no more than a minor inconvenience. Not only that, but the nightmares that I had endured several times a week for most of my life suddenly stopped occurring, seemingly without any effort on our part. The unexpected benefits continue to play out, having an ongoing impact on my outlook and experience of living.I highly recommend Al, particularly if, like me, you have consulted every kind of psychotherapist and doctor, yet have stubborn issues that continue to get in your way. Al’s work takes the form of gentle and thoughtful enquiry, where he invites your mind and body to reveal its inner wisdom. He is not afraid to pause the session while he takes stock and considers the best way to proceed. To me, this reveals a considerable maturity and humility at work.Can’t thank you enough, Al.read more

I went to see Alastair as I was struggling with a lot of things in my life including addiction, severe anxiety and depression. He has helped me far more than I ever expected. His methods are creative, productive and often fun! I have gone from being incredibly isolated and fearful, to becoming confident and in control of my thoughts, working towards a much brighter future.read more

If you want to take a step back from your current reality and discover new ways of being and doing, then go and see Al... Thoughtful, creative, intuitive and with such lovely energy. I can't rate Al highly enough and I'd encourage anyone ready for change to work with him. He's very gifted at what he does, widely read and very experienced, yet modest and down to earth.read more

Alastair has helped me with upper back pain which started about 15 years ago. At that time I went to see an osteopath who I felt made it worse. Alastair used a fairly simple but effective technique and as a result, my negative feelings have gone towards the osteopath and so has the upper back pain which is amazing!read more

I had three sessions with Alastair earlier this year, mainly to try to tackle my flying phobia, which has unfortunately become more prevalent in recent years. I was probably slightly sceptical about how he could help and what he would do, but over the three sessions, Alastair taught me some invaluable techniques for dealing with anxiety in general - which can actually be applied across a wide range of situations in life! Without going into too much detail, probably the most incredible thing was the way he takes you back into your past to help you get in touch with the 'you' of many years ago! A really amazing experience and one which helped me considerably. Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending Alastair whole-heartedly, whether you are looking for some life coaching or need help overcoming a fear or phobia. Thanks, Alastair.read more

Ali is a great coach in a sense that he makes me feel really comfortable sharing my experience. He makes it a more enjoyable journey going down the memory lane, digging into my darkest/forgotten places to find out the root causes of some of my current problems.Through his subtle but effective techniques, he helped me understand that I can't analyze things to well-being; I can't be happy through worrying about things; I can't be present if I keep thinking about what is the appropriate way to be present. He helped me have the outsider perspective of my own life and see it in a different light.And above all, he helped me get back the ability to breathe normally.He is a great coach without any doubt and I highly recommend him without any reservation.Thank you a lot Alastair!read more

Alastair helped me to see myself more clearly and put my feet on the ground. He helped to find out what I really want and how to focus working towards my goals. He showed me the importance of practice, made me see my assets and the need to hone my skills and get confident in using them. He approached both deep and practical issues in a direct and motivating style.Should you wish to find more clarity in your personal or professional life, I can warmly recommend Alastair’s skills and warm support.read more

Alastair has played a huge role in helping me develop my self-confidence. We discussed various practical strategies that I could use, and after only a few sessions I was able to see a huge difference in myself. Since then I haven't looked back and things have been going really well. It's clear that Alastair cares massively about the people he works with and we still keep in contact to this day. Thanks again Alastair for always being there for me.read more

What Alastair did for me a few years ago has been of tremendous help ever since. His method was down to earth and accessible, yet it helped solve problems I thought I'd have to live with for life.More importantly it made me interested in psychology, learn to help myself, and continue on a life-long journey with strength and confidence.read more
