Faustina Walter MBACP PGDip
There are many and varied reasons why people seek counselling. All of us face confusing, painful and difficult times in our lives and we may feel we need to reach out for guidance. It could be that you can identify specific issues, or maybe you can't and just feel you have lost your way in life and simply want to find a deeper connection to yourself and others.
Counselling offers a confidential, non-judgemental, safe place for you to talk and be heard, explore your situation and find your own answers. I am here to help facilitate your own understanding and discovery, rather than just offer expert advice.
I practice from a Humanistic psychotherapeutic perspective grounded in the acknowledgment that we each have our own unique individual experiences of life. I believe that through being deeply present with our suffering and distress, we can rediscover a sense of meaning and purpose.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BACP Accredited Postgraduate Diploma in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling from Brighton University.
In addition to my private practice, my work has included counselling at the East Sussex Drug and Alcohol Recovery Service, for Cruse as a bereavement counsellor, and as a school counsellor for 11-18 year olds. I have recently completed a continued professional training in bereavement, suicide intervention and substance misuse.
For the past twenty years I have worked extensively within education, health and well-being related fields, with people of all ages.
I am a fully insured member of the BACP which is one of the largest professional registering bodies for counsellors and psychotherapists in the UK.
