Hi, I'm Alex

I have dedicated most of my life to learning about health and human behaviour. 
Now I help couples and families bring understanding into their lives and the lives of their children.

My parents divorced when I was 5, so I know first hand what it is like to be on the other side of a broken relationship. At the age of 15, I embarked on the path of understanding life. As a result, I have read numerous books and together with life experience, this allowed me to be in a position of helping couples to work out their problems, so that their children can grow up with love and care, regardless of them choosing to stay together or separate.

Right now, I am learning to let go… My nomad lifestyle helps me realise what things are necessary and what are not. Recently, I discovered that part of this experience is letting go of attachments to people, some of whom are old friends.

My skills and approach

In my practice, I often meet couples who are in a relationship that is full of arguments, misunderstanding and jealousy. Everyday struggles and concerns make it easy for us to forget why we are together with our partner. We get so bogged down with everyday trivialities that before long, our relationship becomes a chore. And, this is something that just should not be. Being a parent puts an additional strain, in some cases making intimacy non-existent.

Compromises and sacrifices in the name of a child, do not contribute to anyone’s happiness. The child learns from the parents, so whatever you are experiencing, you know the child is going to carry it through his or her life.

What if there was a way to have a relationship that is based on harmony and understanding?
How would your child’s life be different if you were to replace disagreements with understanding, resentment with love and despair with hope?
What future do you want for yourself and for your little one?

We all need to learn to understand each other more and communicate better so that we can enjoy sharing our lives with those we care about.

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.

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.
