Alex Archer, MBACP (Reg.), Dip.Couns

Welcome to Green Lodge Counselling. My name is Alex Archer, and I'm a qualified and experienced counselling professional. If you are looking for support and a place to talk openly and honestly, I'm here to help you heal and find resolution.

Green Lodge Counselling is a private practice based in Wembdon, Bridgwater, Somerset.  I offer Person-Centred therapy to adults. I provide UK-wide counselling via Zoom or phone. Additionally, if you are local to Bridgwater in Somerset, sessions can be face to face.

On visiting my site for the first time you may want to know:

  • I work individually with adult (18+) clients. (I am not a couples counsellor)

  • Is this the right type of counselling for me? Person-Centred Counselling is a highly effective talking therapy where you can discuss, explore and understand the issues you are facing.

  • Session times - Monday to Friday, 8am to 2pm, Saturday morning - 8am to midday. Click Session Calendar to view available appointment times. You can also book sessions online via this calendar. 

  • How much will counselling cost? I charge £55 per session. See - Fees info   .I'm increasing my fees to £60 per session for new clients from 12th Sept 2024. For clients actively in therapy prior to 12th Sept, I'm maintaining fees at £55 till the end of the year.

Therapeutic counselling

Life often finds a way to 'knock us sideways'. Consequently, our emotional well being and mental health can suffer. Whatever the reason you are seeking help, I counsel men and women and offer understanding, respect and empathy.

Sessions usually take place weekly. In our sessions together you have a confidential and safe space to explore your situation and feelings.


By nature I'm compassionate and non-judgmental. I believe it very important that you feel valued, heard and understood.

I found it a very calming environment and very worthwhile.”

Our initial counselling session together

The first session is a great opportunity to discuss the therapeutic process. We'll look at how we work together - things like appointment times, how frequently you would like sessions, fees and confidentiality. I'd like to hear about what has brought you to counselling and we'll be looking at what you want to achieve from further sessions.
