As a holistic psychotherapist and transpersonal guide, grief ritualist, poet, and devoted seeker, Alexandre is passionately in service to loving-awareness and the evolution of consciousness. With an eclectic therapeutic, ancestral, and musically-creative background, he meaningfully weaves together his roots as a multidisciplinary and integrative practitioner.


Originally born in Mauritius to a mixed-race lineage and raised as a first-generation immigrant in Australia, Alexandre's calling to explore the wild terrains of psycho-spiritual processes was seeded early on in his life. After experiencing the 'soul-quake' of a spontaneous spiritual emergence in his mid-20s, an embodied realization emerged through the cracks: that there exist profound ways of knowing and transformative dimensions to life (both inner and outer) that conventional models of emotional and psychospiritual health are significantly disconnected from. Through years of immersion and training within transpersonal and integrative, as well as earth-based and indigenous paradigms, he discovered his calling to support people as a guide who can walk with "feet in multiple worlds."   

Through A Healing Bridge, Alexandre now works one-on-one in private practice (in-person and online), facilitates the integration of plant-medicine experiences, co-creates gentle spaces for small groups to explore deep psychospiritual processes such as grief-work and breathwork (alongside his beloved wife Alyona), and writes soulful poetry.

 

Alexandre's passion is to provide a sanctuary for seekers and sensitive men and womxn of diverse backgrounds to become more intimate with themselves and their relations (human and non-human), to reclaim the aliveness lost from experiences of suffering in their life, and to strengthen their connection to that which is Sacred. His integrative approach to psychospiritual maturation is a great fit for those who are interested in engaging in the vital relational and inner-work required for meaningful change - who resonate with earth-based, shamanic, and/or spiritual paradigms, and feel inspired to engage in the organic (and often slow & long-term) process of authentic ripening.

At the core of his deeper vocational inquiry, Alexandre's passion is to investigate (experientially) the intersections between healing developmental wounds and ancestral trauma, working respectfully with extraordinary states of consciousness and plant & ritual technologies, and the mythopoetic process of psycho-spiritual initiation into authentic adulthood for modern folx. 


Alexandre is currently undertaking an intensive 3-year therapy training program in Psychedelic Medicine & Transpersonal Psychology through the AWE (Onca) Foundation, and lives in the Sacred Valley of Cusco, Peru.

I am actively engaged in ongoing professional development, including supervision, mentoring, and integrative trainings, which support me in my continuous evolution as a holistic practitioner. I am also committed to ongoing personal inner-work, relational healing (human+non-human), self-inquiry, and educating myself on evolutionary socio-political, culturally-inclusive and gender-inclusive paradigms, and view this continuous education as imperative for being able to guide others with integrity and care, and ultimately, for being a respectful and kind human.
