Some interpersonal news: Al Tyers Therapy
Hello. I have news. After several years of training and hundreds of hours counselling people in volunteer services and charities, I am opening up a private therapy practice. I am based in Clerkenwell, near Farringdon Station in London EC1; I am also offering psychotherapy and counselling online and by phone.
Alongside training, qualifying and working as a counsellor, I’ve been very lucky to have had 22 years writing about sport and television, and to have been able to make a living doing that. Over the last few years I’ve noticed that I am more interested in the people behind the stories and how they came to be who they are, rather than the how and what of their public achievements today. I think that's made me much more curious as a person, and probably much less useful as a journalist.
I also believe that mental health in our country is coming to a point of crisis and, if I can help in that battle in some small way, then that is how I’d like to use the time I have and the opportunities that life has given me.
I’m really grateful to colleagues and friends in journalism, writing and beyond who’ve shown an interest or offered support in this new direction for me.
If I can help you or someone you know, then please get in touch.
You can see more about me and my practice on this website, and get in contact with me here. Here’s my Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and my professional registration at the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
