Alexandra Bohnen

Alexandra was born and raised in Singapore. As part of an intercultural expat-local family, she has a good understanding of the values held and the challenges faced by Singaporeans, expats and third-culture individuals. She also lived in England, where she trained to be a Psychological Well-being Practitioner with the National Health Service. As a result, she brings a sensitive, culturally-informed approach to her practice.

Alexandra is experienced in providing individual therapy for adults who struggle with relationships, identity, sexuality, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, phobias, stress management, and more. She believes strongly in helping her clients dig deep to understand themselves better, bringing forth their natural strengths and resources. To do so, Alexandra cultivates a warm, compassionate and non-judgmental space in which clients can feel safe and empowered to explore their challenges.

She works in a person-centred manner, meeting them where people are at and encouraging meaningful change. Informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Mindfulness, Schema Therapy and attachment theory, as well as other modalities, she adapts her practice to suit each individual.

Alexandra is committed to ethical practice, attending regular supervision and professional development. She speaks English and has conversational fluency in German and Mandarin.
