Jefh Davies, BACP Accredited Counsellor
01323 382384 / 07763072828
I am an experienced BACP Accredited counsellor offering one-to-one counselling for adults and young people.
My practice, based in Seaford, is within easy reach of Peacehaven, Newhaven, Lewes, Eastbourne, Rottingdean, Saltdean, Alfriston and surrounding villages and only a short distance from Brighton and its Universities.
My experience of counselling in a number of different settings enables me to work with people of all ages and with a wide range of issues, problems, or difficulties in their lives, including anxiety, depression, confusion, and relationship issues.
Counselling sessions take place in a purpose built consulting room attached to my home, Avebury on Wilmington Road in Seaford. The counselling room has its own entrance, separate from the rest of the house.
The sessions are 50 minutes long and the number of sessions will vary from person to person. While one client may only need to come for, say, six or ten sessions, for others working over a period of several months or for a year or more would be more beneficial. When we meet for an initial appointment we can discuss the most suitable way forward.
With both adults and young people I use a variety of counselling methods depending on the needs of the individual. The overall style, though, is conversational and I usually listen more than I talk. You are, after all, the one who knows what your issues are and what you want to talk about. I need to listen if I am to help.
In our sessions you will have the opportunity to explore your feelings and what is going on in your life, to reflect on this, to come to understand yourself and your relationships more clearly, and to find a way forward that is right for you.
My aim is, through the counselling process, to help you to ease your distress and to become more fulfilled, content, and in control of your own life. In most cases, my clients and I achieve this aim.
