About me

My name is Alexandra Chapman I am based in Paphos, Cyprus. I am delighted to welcome you to my website. I'd like to share with you a little about how working with me may help you.  

I will work with you to get rid of negative behaviours that could be worsening your health and wellbeing. These might be almost anything, but may include phobias, smoking, drinking too much, poor relationship skills, sugar, unhealthy eating habits and sleepless nights.

I help people to feel relaxed and in control, to build their confidence, self-esteem, motivation, set objectives, and give them clarity and perspective in their lives, using counselling, hypnotherapy and other therapeutic tools for personal development.  I will create a specific therapy program for you, to help you to move forward to become the person you feel you should be, or the person you really want to be.

I am always happy to answer questions;  you’ll never know how I can help till you ask.

All first sessions with me include a free wellbeing consultation. Working with me usually involves an assessment of your needs and requirements, and I have a range of skills and techniques I can incorporate into your therapy, that will provide you with the potential for lasting personal change. I welcome questions and I am available to speak to you in person, online, or by phone.

I've been helping people change their lives for over 30 years.  As an experienced and accredited counsellor and hypnotherapist, I’ve helped many people reach their goals, overcome fears, and let go of unwanted thoughts and behaviour.

Personal development, meditation and hypnotherapy have been part of my own personal journey.  As a therapist, I empower people to move forward in positive and beneficial ways, by giving them the skills and tools they need on their own journey of self-discovery.


READ ON FOR MORE ABOUT ME AND HOW I WORK.
I moved to Cyprus in 2012 and love living on this sunny, friendly island. You might have already met me, if we share one of my several hobbies. However, you may not have previously known about my work as a counsellor, and that's because I keep that work completely separate from my social life.

Whatever problems or situation you bring to counselling, I will not judge you and will listen with compassion, warmth and kindness. Counselling with me is completely confidential and you can be absolutely certain that anything you talk about will go no further – particularly important in a small community like Paphos. Our counselling work together will be a safe, understanding and honest relationship where you can explore issues or problems and find positive and helpful ways to go forward.

I've been a counsellor since 2007, having trained for four years in psychodynamic counselling with a BACP accredited provider in the UK and then spent some years working as a counsellor for a mental health charity.   I have further qualifications in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnotherapy and since moving to Cyprus completed a course in bereavement and end-of-life counselling with PASYKAF.

I'm an accredited Member of the Complementary Medical Association, an overseas Member of the UK Hypnotherapy Council and a Registered Member of the National UK Therapists Register. I work at all times within the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This is your assurance that I am trained, ethical and respectful of you and the confidence you place in me.

I undertake regular CPD to keep up to date with developments in my areas of interest, and continue to study other models of counselling. This enables me to incorporate useful aspects of different methods when planning individual treatments.

Before qualifying as a a counsellor, I worked in a profession where helping people to change their lives for the better was part of my everyday work. I've had a long and varied life, seen most things and even done some of them myself. I'm open-minded, pretty much unshockable, and certainly understand how good people can find themselves in unexpected circumstances.
