To hold onto issues whether from childhood or a few years ago can keep us in a place that is painful and confusing and can seem impossible to move on from. This can lead to mental health problems such as anxiety or depression or some form of addiction that keeps you stuck. By starting to talk through these issues with a counsellor it can lead to a freedom and understanding about yourself and then you are able to move on with your life.

This has been such a strange and demanding time. It has given many of us time to reflect on our lives and adjust our priorities. And for others it has increased anxieties and highlighted fears. You may be looking for support in understanding a difficult period or relationship in your life. You may be feeling desperate or feeling things just aren't right. Putting concerns into words and sharing your thoughts and feelings can be the first step to addressing the issues and resolving them. A better relationship with yourself is often a happy outcome.

'I just want to be free from my anxiety.' 'I hate my body and will never be happy with my true self.'  Maybe it's crippling anxiety where you're fearful of every situation, whether it's the now or related to a past trauma. Perhaps you lack confidence in body & self, disliking yourself and feeling like you don't know who you are which causes you to be afraid to be your true self. Perhaps it's attachment patterns in relationships, fear of trusting due to being let down & abandoned, the terror of ending up hurt and alone. Well, I can help. After all, Tom, Dick or Harry telling us that 'It'll be okay' is well meaning but does it help?

If you are looking to come to therapy for the first time or are wanting a deeper exploration of old troubles I can offer you my undivided attention. I know how challenging it can be and yet how exciting. I hope that together we will be able to make sense of the confusions and struggles of the twenty first century world as you experience it. Loss, relationship breakdown, anxiety and depression, trauma past or present, sexuality or gender conundrums set in the backdrop of climate crisis, war, rocketing inflation and pandemic recovery are all grist to the mill of personal growth.

I am an LGBTQ+ affirmative person-centred counsellor based in Hastings. In a society where we are championed for being happy, strong and in control, it can seem daunting and even impossible at times to talk about how we truly feel in fear of becoming a burden or being judged. I offer a safe, accepting and compassionate space for you to be completely yourself, where you can experience your emotions without judgement. Together, we can explore what it is that has brought you to counselling at your own pace.

Hello, my name is John. I have worked in private practice as a psychotherapist for over fifteen years with individuals and couples ranging from 16 to over 70. In that time, I have worked with a broad spectrum of people from many cultural backgrounds presenting an array of issues. Everyone is different. Over the years I have I have found that the more the client trusts in me the better the result. Therefore, I endeavour to build a strong therapeutic alliance, one where we can be honest with each other, this can take time depending on the client.

If you’re reading this, I’m guessing things aren’t feeling quite ‘right’ in your life at the moment. Perhaps you’re struggling with some difficult thoughts or feelings. Perhaps you’ve hit a fork in the road and you’re unsure which way to go. Perhaps you’re not really sure what ‘it’ is that needs to change. I believe that opening up and sharing your concerns with someone who is trained to listen and respond to you, is the first step in working through them. While counselling can’t remove the challenging experiences that you're facing, it can help to empower you so you can move through them with strength and purpose.

'Life is not the way it supposed to be. It is the way it is. The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.' Virginia Satir, psychotherapist. Changes, challenges, fears and loss are all part of our human experience. Sometimes we can manage the difficulties we face, on other occasions we may feel overwhelmed and in need of support. This is true for people at all stages of life. I offer a safe, non-judgemental, confidential and comfortable environment where you can talk about and creatively explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences.

During the decade that I have been working with clients I’ve supported them with a variety of issues, especially around identity and gaining deeper self-knowledge, around marginalisation, and dealing with bigotry and injustice, but also on major life changes, career counselling, and emotional literacy. Some clients use the space to gain self awareness, some to bring about change in their life within a supportive environment in which to reflect and work through fears and trauma, and some wish to resolve specific issues which have recently arisen. I work with individual adult clients of all sexualities and genders.

As a counsellor, I aim to provide a safe, empathic and non-judgemental atmosphere in which you can explore whatever dilemma may be troubling you. This might be to do with relationships, work, identity, sexuality, creativity, coping with difficult emotions and destructive patterns, or a combination of these and other issues. You may also wish to simply use our time together as a means of regularly checking-in with yourself, or having an independent ear around some important life decision you need to make.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Hastings?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Hastings specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
