Alex Ioannou is an experienced Dramatherapist, whose work is informed by body psychotherapy and traumatherapy working with people on a 1-1 basis.  His therapeutic approach moves between bringing focus on the body and its sensations and movement, accessing the intuitive sensing of imagination and verbal discussion and is primarily collaborative and relational. Before training as a dramatherapist, Alex was an actor and musician, therefore understanding some of the stresses and pressures of a performer's life. He still sings and performs occasionally.

Alex can help with issues relating to anxiety, depression, trauma, relationships, life/career transitions, sleep difficulties, performance anxiety and self esteem.

His therapeutic work is primarily informed by a body based and cultural understanding of trauma. He also has a special interest in working with bicultural people and those with experience of migration and is very mindful of the social and cultural issues around power and difference that affect people's individual difficulties.
