Guilt & Shame
Alexandra Cupar is a person-centred, CBT psychotherapist and she is a registered member with the BACP, working towards accreditation. Alexandra has a Bachelor Degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology and CBT Psychotherapy. She is currently working on a short-term basis with NHS patients at a GP surgery in Lambeth.
Alexandra strongly believes that growth can only take place in an environment marked by acceptance and deep empathy. Using an integrative approach, she will actively listen and work with the clients to identify their needs and goals, to hold the space for them to process difficult emotions such as angst, shame, grief, and to guide them into discovering more about themselves, their relational patterns and their approach to the world. Alexandra’s person- centred modality will give the clients a tailored form of therapy, while her CBT expertise will bring evidence-based approaches for their range of problems.
Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, Alexandra worked with young adults emerging from foster homes and she aided them to integrate into society. From here she discovered her interest in working with resilience, shame and guilt and with building self-esteem. Through volunteering at a suicide prevention hotline, she developed skills to deal with crisis situations and to listen to and defuse internal pressure.
Alexandra’s expertise encompasses working with all forms of anxiety and depression. She aims to help her clients regulate their emotions, reduce their physiological activation, improve relational skills and change unhelpful thinking styles. Working for over a year at an addiction centre, Alexandra has a particular interest in working with alcohol and drug dependence and misuse.
