Andrea Percy BSc (Hons.), PGDip, MBACP
01273 324790 / 07812544372
I offer individual psychotherapy on a weekly basis at the Dolphin House Clinic in Brighton.
I work relationally to help clients understand how past experiences and relationships might be impacting current difficulties.
Psychotherapy can help make changes to these often hard-wired patterns and facilitate the development of more healthy fulfilling relationships. I work in a client-centered way, providing the conditions for change within a safe, contained and confidential space.
I work with:
- Attachment problems
I am currently completing an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of East London. I practice privately as well as within a University counselling service. I have previously practiced within a specialty service for survivors or child abuse and trauma.
I primarily work using a relational/psychodynamic model. However I work integratively, which means I draw upon a range of approaches tailored to your individual situation or needs.
When you get in touch we can set up an initial appointment where we can talk about what you want to get out of counselling. Following this if you decide that you are happy to continue we can set up a second session. We can then arrange to meet weekly or fortnightly.

What clients have said about working with Andrea.
"Andrea really has changed my life, as cheesy as it sounds. I have visited numerous counsellors over the past eight years in the attempt to alleviate the symptoms of my often overwhelming depression and anxiety. Andrea is the only one, I feel, who has been able to truly make a difference to the way I look at things. Her patience, calming, caring but professional manner and determination to help create a long-term change in my mental health really has impacted me in the most positive of ways. I am now able to view the world and situations with a new found awareness and apply this to any hurdles that I may come across."
— Harriet 2017
“I cannot recommend Andrea enough, I feel her style, method and personability will suit anyone who is looking to take the route of counselling."
— Emma 2017
"By the time Andrea saw me, I’d been a patient of several other therapists over the years, each at different stages in my life. Some were good, others not quite so competent, but I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Andrea was and is right up there with the very best. It became clear from the start that Andrea genuinely cared about her clients, and always seemed to be able to find a way in which to put into words what I was feeling and going through, even if that was something I was finding challenging myself.
Honestly, I could write pages and pages about how Andrea has changed my life for the better and has, quite literally, helped me survive through a trauma that no one should ever have to go through, but to sum up I’ll just say this: if you’re looking for a therapist who is knowledgeable, intelligent, insightful, caring and one of the best in her field, look no further than Andrea Percy. She will, as the old adage goes, help you to help yourself and really will change your life for the better."
