Hi, I'm Alex

I’ve dedicated my life to health and human behaviour.
Growing up in the family of medical doctors I’ve learnt to care about others from an early age.

My parents divorced when I was 5. At the time I had no idea of the impact it would have on my life. 

I was on a clear path to becoming a medical doctor, was I to stay in Ukraine.

But life had other plans…

a little about me…

I moved to the UK at the age of 15, this set my life in a whole different direction. Things I took for granted like love, inclusion, acceptance, belonging… have now suddenly became unfulfilled needs.

Suffice to say that I didn’t see it quite as clearly at the time. I was confused, lost, unwilling to live. I no longer have a big family and friends, these were dark times.

At the age of 18 I picked up my first self-help book by Dale Carnegie – How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, which my father recommended to me.

After floating day to day for a few years, trying to make sense of life I embarked on a journey of Natural Medicine. This was in line with my family values, but with a twist. 

At 22 I completed a L3 Diploma in Holistic Therapies and sailed off to a better life working as a massage therapist on a cruise ship. Amazing as it was, after some time I found myself back on mainland, ready for the next step.

Until that time I went quite deep in my spiritual journey, so I decided that I needed to learn more about the ins and outs of the human body.

While waiting for my course to begin, I lived in a hostel in London for a year. This was a whole new experience.

7 years later I completed my Masters in Chiropractic. As much as I love manual therapy, I believe that true help comes from looking at all aspects of one’s life.

And this is how I’ve come to be a health and relationship coach.

my life • my philosophy

I believe that we are all responsible for our behaviour, even though most of it is unconscious.

This belief is the foundation for my approach to coaching. This one thing makes the difference between blame and responsibility.

my view on marriage

Being a child of a broken marriage, I know the consequences of growing up in a family that has fallen apart. It has affected me in so many ways, that only 30 years later I started to grasp the extent of influence it had on my life.

In all honesty, it seems unfair that a child should suffer the consequences of the parent’s discord. But in fact, although we see our parents as someone special, they are still only humans. Every parent has their own story and when the child is born, it may put extra pressure on personal insecurities and challenge a relationship that most likely has its own quirks.

My life is empowered by the amazing human beings who gave me life, I just wish I could have had a luxury of having both of them in my life. There is not much I can do about it now, but I can most certainly help other couples and parents who face difficult decisions to make the right ones.

If you are looking for help to save your marriage or if you have decided it is time to move on, please know that there is a right way to do either. Don’t let your misunderstandings complicate your own lives and the future of your children. Send me a message and let’s work it out together.

Read my article on marriage.com where I briefly explain how relationships evolve over time & browse through a number of related topics on my blog.

Personally, I’ve had a number of relationships that gave me a foundation to learn from. Being in a 3 year long relationship now, I feel that everyday is an opportunity to improve for the better.
