Alex Lives in the North east of England with his wife and three children and Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He has worked in counselling therapy, person centred care/ support, entertainment and party photography and is also a writer of books on counselling.
Since 1998, Alex has worked with people living with physical and neurological conditions, providing them with the support they require to lead fulfilling lives. His extensive experience in this field has given him a deep understanding of the challenges faced by individuals with these conditions.
In 2000, Alex began studying psychology-based subjects while working at a Day Center with people who had physical and learning disabilities. His passion for the subject inspired him to write a book on the 'Hierarchy of Needs in Care & Support.'
Over the years, Alex has volunteered with various organizations, providing counseling and personal development workshops. He volunteered with Contact Mental Health Group in Morpeth from 2005 to 2010 and also worked as a volunteer counselor with Escape Family Support from 2006 to 2007 for people affected by alcohol and substance dependency. During this time, he gained invaluable experience working with both victims and perpetrators of serious crimes, which broadened his perspective on human nature.
In 2006, Alex founded Actualisation Resource Counselling and Certification (ARCC), offering workshops and distance learning for subjects with spiritual or philosophical themes. He emphasized ethics for practitioners who work with potentially vulnerable people. In 2011, ARCC became "Plessey Castle Autodidact" and offers acknowledgment for learning with their very own PCAc in-house awards.
Aside from his work in counseling and social care, Alex runs a successful entertainment business as a DJ and party photographer for weddings and other events. He presents The Knight Towels/Laughing Owl phone-in show at Plessey Castle Radio, where he invites individuals from adult social care in Northumberland to participate. Alex is also an author of books on counseling, psychotherapy, and social care, which he publishes regularly on the Amazon website.
In addition to his work in social care, Alex has worked as a positive behavior support trainer and Non-Abusive Psychological and Physical Intervention. His dedication to improving the lives of individuals with physical and neurological conditions, combined with his expertise in counseling and entertainment, has made him a respected professional in his field.
