How are you, really? Times are extraordinarily tough on so many levels. If you're stressed out, burnt out, feeling anxious, feeling stuck or approaching a life transition - this can be hard to function with, and it takes energy to push down. Many of us are high functioning - in service to our families and communities, our work, and distract ourselves from our own needs up to the point of crisis. How do we step outside these demands when it feel though as though it's never enough? Counselling isn't asking for you to do more. Instead, the invitation of therapy is to offer you space to clarify, reflect and make meaning of your life.

Perhaps talking does not come easily for you and you want to try working with non verbal approaches to expression. Anxiety may be creating unpleasant sensations in your body or you may be heavy with the weight of depression. You may be experiencing bodily symptoms or chronic pain and your body longs to be listened to. Our traumatic pasts exists in our body in the here and now. I offer a trauma informed, creative embodied approach that allows you to express yourself verbally and nonverbally and offers tools for developing a more empathic inner voice as well as supporting you to regulate your body in times of stress.

We all feel overwhelmed from time to time. Psychotherapy is one way of dealing with a specific problem, everyday struggle, or a general sense of unhappiness. Whether you feel low or are dealing with a specific crisis, I see difficulties we encounter as anchored in how we relate to ourselves and others, based on my belief that relationships are at the heart of being human.

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.

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 Saint Leonards-on-sea?
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 Saint Leonards-on-sea 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.
