I am now offering a number of different options for attending counselling in these unusual times. I believe counselling should be accessible to all. I have therefore ensured that each of these options are explained fully, so you may make an informed decision if you wish to attend counselling and move forward into enabling change in your life.
I am now offering outdoor counselling sessions in line with safe distancing measures. There are several walks near my practice where we can safely and confidentially walk and talk. Please contact me if you would like to know more.
I also offer telephone counselling either outdoor or indoor. This can take place on your daily walk, in your garden or outside space. This can be a ‘face-time’ call or a traditional telephone call.
And, of course, Face to Face indoor counselling within official guidelines. These take place in both my Practice locations: Bexhill and Seaford. You may see my policy surrounding keeping safe here.
All the above options will begin with a 20 min free consultation by telephone to discuss and see if it is appropriate to work together.
You are possibly reading this website because you are looking for information on Counselling & Psychotherapy in your local area, perhaps for yourself or a person close to you. Taking care of ourselves, including our own wellbeing is a powerful and fulfilling investment to make in our lives.
Counselling is setting aside a time with a qualified professional to explore difficulties you may be having including stressful or emotional feelings which are having a negative impact on your life.
I see counselling as a powerful tool to support the changes you may want to make in your life. The belief of Humanistic Counselling is that all human beings given the right conditions have the capacity for change.
Counselling is a positive way of helping you cope with changes in your life, managing feelings, allowing your emotions, and discovering inner resource you may not have been aware you possessed.
It can be difficult sharing these painful emotions or experiences with family or friends for fear of hurting or upsetting them, or perhaps feeling judged.
I provide an empathic, non-judgmental space in comfortable rooms in Bexhill & Seaford.
We will move at your own pace and I will ensure you feel supported and safe.
The following are a few examples of reasons clients may have come to counselling:
Overwhelmed with your grief for a loved one and feeling stuck.
Experiencing loss in your life may feel like a bereavement, whether a breakup of a relationship, your child going to university, moving house, or a change in your identity. All these are only a few example of how loss can manifest in our lives.
Maybe you want to feel happier, more peaceful and inspired in your life, but you feel something is getting in your way. You may be longing to move forward to your dreams and goals but don’t know how to deal with the sense of fear or confusion which seems to arise.
Perhaps you are worried, anxious or feeling overwhelmed and may be experiencing some of the health issues that can come from ongoing stress.
You may want to be able to understand and manage fear, anxiety or anger more effectively, or have an incident or situation in your life that remains unresolved.
Maybe you are struggling to find a sense of meaning or purpose in your life. You feel that you are ready for a change of direction but feel unsure of where to start
We can work together to ensure you gain a better understanding of who you are and perhaps a sense of where you may move forward in your life. We can use different strategies to find more clarity in your life.
It is my belief, that given the right therapeutic conditions, and taking an active role and responsibility for our lives, positive change can occur. I can to provide the tools to enable awareness in yours.
Whatever the initial reason you have begun looking into counselling as an option, I hope after reading about the way I work, you will get a better sense of who I am and how I may help you.
