Alex Pledger is a counsellor, coach and clinical supervisor. She retrained from working in a corporate role back in 2000 when she discovered a passion for helping people overcome their problems and change lives. Since then she has worked with individuals, companies and institutions to help deliver sustainable solutions to the hurdles and obstacles that life tends to put in our way.

“We all get stuck from time to time and modern life is not as easy as Instagram can make it look! We are bombarded with messages about how we should be living – how healthy, successful and happy we should be, but sometimes that life just seems a million miles from crawling out of bed and feeling totally lost about the day ahead. Your secret weapon is resilience. You’re never going to be amazing all of the time, but you can learn (with patience, effort & determination) to thrive in the good times and get through the hard ones. If you can find a way of truly being you – living in peaceful harmony with your own head, heart & body – then you can develop the confidence to cope with pretty much anything and achieve things you never thought possible.”

Time To Change offers you the support to become the best version of yourself that you can. With expertise, understanding & motivation, you can change the things which have been holding you back and move forward clear and strong. Here’s what one of our clients said about our service:

“I feel like a different person. Sometimes you need a guide in life who isn’t emotionally connected to you. I have said goodbye to some past demons, ready to move ahead with my life more confidently and happier in my own skin. This experience completely changed my life and I only wish I had done it sooner.”
