THE ROAD™

Counselling & Personal Development

"....one of the most innovative and effective counselling services available
and a wealth of resources for your own reading and personal development...."

Alec Gore

You can be assured of the quality of the training, counselling, psychotherapy or hypnotherapy you will be participating in. Alec has a natural affinity for gaining rapport with people in conversation and, through empathy and love, can help them with an intuitive, perceptive and logical way of thinking.

His final motivation towards practising was reading M. Scott Peck's, The Road Less Travelled because he could identify with counselling being more than just knowledge of psychology theory and the application of clever techniques. There is discipline, love and grace and the evolution of a person towards wholeness and greater spirituality.

Alec was educated in the UK at Maidstone School for Boys (now Oakwood Park Grammar School) and Oxford Polytechnic (now Oxford Brookes University). He has worked with people's personal crises since 1982, often in very demanding circumstances, with an earlier career in police work where he developed his interest in and studied psychology.

He trained for two years with Woodbury Counselling Ltd. to become a Psychotherapist, supervised by Adrian Greaves, MA, MIMgt, FHS. Alec is a Certified Master Practitioner and Certified Trainer of NLP, Time Line® Therapy and Neuro Linguistic Psychology™ through the training of the The International Institute for Humanistic Neuro-Linguistic Psychology™ and Hypnosis and Neuro-Energetics - John Overdurf, CAC, CMH and Julie Silverthorn, MS, CMH.

Alec lived and worked in Hong Kong for 16 years from 1988 - a unique window through which to see the pressures and experiences in people's lives. In 1995 he established his own practice, THE ROAD™ Counselling and Personal Development. He's been featured in newspaper and appeared on live radio, in Hong Kong and the UK.

Now returned to England and based in Southampton, Alec continues to see clients for counselling, psychotherapy and hypnotherapy and conducts personal breakthroughs.

Alec created, develops and maintains THE ROAD™ website through which he has pioneered and developed online counselling, personal breakthroughs and personal development.
