Alex Maclean


I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and am based in Bishop Auckland.

I am a counselling therapist, eco therapist and yoga teacher. I particularly enjoy working outdoors with clients amongst nature which I believe has added benefits to the therapy process. I use an integrative approach to therapy and have increasingly integrated yoga, somatic movement, embodiment, breathwork and mindfulness into my work with clients. I have been working in the therapeutic field for over 15 years working with clients addressing a broad range of mental health difficulties. I have had experience working in secure settings such as psychiatric hospitals and prisons and also in community for the NHS, hospices, addiction services and charitable organizations.
