About Alex Carling: I achieved a 1st class honours Psychology Degree at Hull University in 2008 and went straight into Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy training at the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy; I have been in private practice since 2012. The significant weight of my professional career has been at Hull Women’s Aid where I supported women and their families to recover from the trauma of domestic abuse for 12 years.

Together with my psychotherapy training and work within trauma, I have gained substantial knowledge of the development of children’s emotions and their developmental needs in the context of their relationships. I'm approachable and experienced in the field and have an ability to make complex theory easy to understand and apply.

My main aim in working with you as parents and carers, is to give you the confidence to attend to your children’s emotional and development needs, reducing the need for external services and improving your relationships.

“As a parent or carer interested in this workshop, you already have the love your children need; let me share with you how to meet their other needs that may present as separation anxiety, worry, being overwhelmed, frustration, self-esteem and communication difficulties.”
