My name is Alexandra Smith

Alexandra Smith - (IoPT) Identity Therapy - Intention Method

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and registered with BAPCA. 


I am trained in Identity oriented Psychotrauma Theory (IoPT) and I offer Identity Therapy using the Intention Method. I am also trained in several other therapeutic practices including CBT Trauma Therapy, Transactional Analysis and Neural Linguistic Programming.

I am a Senior Accredited Member of the  National Council of Psychotherapists (NCP), a registered practitioner with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a member with the British Association for the Person-Centred Approach (BAPCA). I am DBS vetted to work with minors. I am trained in the theories and therapeutic method of Professor Franz Ruppert, which includes the trauma emergency response and his theories of early trauma and trans-generational trauma. 

I have personally worked and studied with Professor Franz Ruppert, Vivian Broughton and Dr Albrecht Mahr. This work has deepened my own personal journey, and informs my practice as a therapist. I have myself experienced fundamental shifts and healing from the form of Integrative Trauma Therapy that I offer, and for that I am truly grateful.

My Post Graduate studies in Trauma and PTSD, was undertaken with the ICS organisation and some years ago I also trained in Systemic Family Constellations Therapy through the Core Constellations organisation.

I have been working with clients in one-to-one and group settings for over 25 years, and I have worked and lived abroad. I am a Mother to two Daughters and a Grandmother.

My purpose in offering Identity Therapy is to open up opportunities for individuals to experience the healthy autonomy that this approach brings, so they may live and work in a more whole and balanced way, as they wish.

...and when the trauma is healed - perception broadens...
and without trying to forgive, we understand there is no blame.
