Kelly Crew BA Hons Humanistic Counselling
I offer a private practise based in Shoreham and littlehampton. I'm an integrative humanistic counsellor who works in a very forward-focused way, but someone who also recognises today. Humanistic counselling works on your personal experience and behaviour with the belief that all people have the potential for growth and change, building upon the unconscious and subconscious. Therefore we have a greater opportunity for insight and self-awareness. What makes my counselling "integrative"?, I have been trained in four types of therapy under the humanistic umbrella so that I can adapt and tailor my sessions to suit your individual needs and requirements. I have experience working with a variety of presenting issues alongside various different services and organisations.
I have Previously worked with:
NHS – working within a staff counselling service and with Cancer patients in conjunction with Western Sussex Hospitals.
Crime Reduction Initiatives – (Registered Charity: 1079327 CRI formaley known as SASS), continuing to work with alcohol and substance misuse clients.
YMCA's Dialogue Service – where I continue to offer community counselling to young people aged between 13-25
SAGE – (Registered Charity: 1088917), which covers the whole of Sussex and Hampshire is a counselling service for people with restricted mobility. During my time with SAGE, I worked with, and visited people, in their home environment who had mobility difficulties.
I am very down to earth, kind and approachable; I have great respect for client confidentiality and regularly reflect upon my work through regular clinical supervision with a qualified and experienced supervisor.
I offer long term open-ended therapy to explore deeper issues, or focused short term counselling for specific problems.

In the initial consultation we can meet to discuss your needs and expectations, and whether you think counselling is right for you.
The purpose of an initial consultation is to discuss your needs, expectations and to help you determine whether counselling is right for you. There is no obligation to continue with any further sessions if you decide not to proceed or if you feel uncomfortable.
Above all, the sessions should be founded upon the therapist being genuine, congruent, empathetic, open, honest, non-judgemental and accepting of you.
I am certain that I fit the above attributes, but the most important thing is that you feel safe.
Consultations = £35 lasting (50 minutes)
I also offer some Concessions these are available dependent on your circumstances.
