About

Alexander Filmer-Lorch
Autobiography

With over 30 years of experience in the therapeutic field, my professional journey has been characterised by organic growth and evolution. Through the attainment of diverse qualifications, I am equipped to approach individuals holistically and integratively.

My passion for assisting others began with the exploration of Eastern philosophy and psychology, which sparked my interest in mindfulness, meditation, and subsequent training in various remedial movement and postural integration techniques.

Seeking a deeper comprehension of the mind-body connection, I pursued training as a body worker and SomatoEmotional Release practitioner. This allowed me to support individuals navigating through complex challenges such as terminal and chronic illnesses, trauma, immune response, and brain injuries.

In 2016, a transformative life event prompted a profound shift in my perspective. Motivated by this experience, I dedicated myself to end-of-life and palliative care, specialising further in post-traumatic stress responses, existential questions and concerns, as well as anxiety-related issues and mental health problems. This led me to pursue training as a psychotherapist.

Today, I am privileged to serve as a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and Clinical Psychotherapist, offering support in private practice in Surrey, London, Greater London and internationally through online platforms.
