Every person has their own unique story. What happens in our lives as our story unfolds shapes who we are, how we see and experience the world, how we feel about it and where we fit within it. Counselling can help you discover more about who you are, learn about your relationships, understand past events and how you developed, help you have deeper understanding of yourself and learn new ways to live your life. Counselling can help you change from feeling that your story is being written for you and learn how to start writing it for yourself. I currently have availability to take new clients.

We all go through times when some additional support could be useful. Whether a specific issue has led you here today, or a wish to explore difficulties in your early life and their impacting on you today, I might be the right person to help. I have extensive experience of working in NHS and charity settings as well as abroad. Aside from my private practice I currently work as Principal Psychologist / Clinical Lead in an NHS service. I have worked with a wide range of difficulties and have most experience in working with complex trauma, interpersonal difficulties, mood management, and autism spectrum conditions.

Hi, I’m Matt, a BACP registered Humanistic Therapist. I am available for face to face sessions in Brighton and Hove and also work online and over the phone. Experiencing difficult feelings and struggling emotionally at times is a natural part of life. I can help with this. The problems may not go away but I can help make them feel smaller and lighter by helping you explore them at a pace you are comfortable with, in a safe, non-judgmental space. I believe everyone experiences the world uniquely and everything is valid.

Hello, I'm an Art Psychotherapist. Whatever brings someone to therapy, whatever their gender, age, neurodivergence, physical ability, race or social background, I am here to hold a supportive space where they can ask their own verbal and sensory questions and have agency over their own answers. Experiences, challenges and changes when it comes to identity, a loss, physical illness, trauma, relationships or insecure attachments, can sometimes become overwhelming and hard to hold alone. A person may come to therapy with a sense of curiosity, about their journey through life, and how it is affecting their relationship with the present.

Are you looking for someone to talk to about the challenges you're facing? Do you need support in navigating life's complexities? Would you like to explore your life's journey and how it has shaped you? If you're feeling lost, stuck, or going through a tough time, know that it's perfectly okay to seek help. With the right support, no situation is too hopeless, and no unhappiness is too great to be lessened. In therapy with me, you'll find a safe, accepting space where you can truly be yourself to express your feelings and speak to the 'un-sayable' or the 'un-thinkable'.

Hello, my name is Kath and I am a person-centred counsellor. Therapy offers a confidential, safe space where you can explore thoughts and feelings. By doing this you give yourself the opportunity to increase your understanding of yourself which in turn enables you to live your life in a more healthy and satisfying way. Not one size fits all so I offer an introductory half hour session so you can decide whether it feels okay to work together. I understand that taking that step to call can be hard, I may not always be able to answer the phone but please do leave a message and I will return your call as soon as I can.

In my practice, the therapeutic relationship is a space where difficult life experiences can be worked through. I take an integrative approach, in which I encourage you to be curious about how your difficulties relate to previous experiences and your expectations for yourself and others. This often brings up feelings that can seem unwelcome and I work with you to help you understand unwanted emotions and connect to your body. My approach aims to deepen your self-awareness in the here-and-now as this helps you to understand and feel compassion for yourself, and be okay in who you are.

I support students aged 16+, as well as adults affected by their time at school, including ex boarders. Being a student can be a hugely stressful experience. What should be an exciting and stimulating time can turn into a nightmare with low mood and self esteem; fear and anxiety. Sometimes, the impact is more subtle, and surviving difficult school experiences can force us to adapt in ways that can become unhelpful later in life. Our time at school can go on to influence us for many years to come. I have supported many adults affected by their school experiences, and struggling with the impact on their current lives.

Hello, I’m Naomi (she/her). I know that starting your therapy journey takes courage and therefore I offer a warm, empathetic and non-judgemental space to support you in taking those first steps. An integrative approach allows me to tailor the therapy to each individual that comes to see me, however I do primarily pull from humanistic and neurobiological theoretical viewpoints. My practice has robust foundations in trauma-informed approaches, placing the safety and empowerment of all clients as the priority.

As a CBT therapist and midwife I understand the barriers you might feel asking for help during the perinatal period (pregnancy, birth or postnatally). Many people struggle to talk about their anxiety, depression or doubts and worries about being a parent. You might feel judged or that you have failed in some way and there can be a real sense of pressure to feel positive throughout, making it sometimes feel really hard to admit you are struggling, so I understand just how significant asking for help is. Reaching out is positive and is the first step towards recovery - of your sense of self, your self worth and your wellbeing.

Speaking with someone for the first time about personal issues or trauma can feel really daunting. It is important to feel safe and not judged when talking about difficult things, and my aim is for us to develop a relationship where you can explore whatever it is that you need to. There is not an exhaustive list of the reasons for coming to counselling initially but one thing is sure and that is it begins with building trust and beginning to speak openly.

What my clients most commonly seek is guidance to help them understand their own emotions, responses and rules that they hold about life. My clients are not dictated to, but supported in learning about what is helpful and rational in their lives, and what is targeted for change. Our honest talks involve a lot of empathy and humour, as there are common themes that we all recognise as causing issues in our lives. My clients are very much individuals, spoken to without judgement and encouraged to make changes to their thinking and then behaviour which will help free them from well-worn paths and being 'stuck'.
