Mignon Springett, MA, Registered MBACP, MBPS, CBT
I offer low cost counselling for both adults and children and couples. I have several years of counselling experience working with clients from all ages, cultures and backgrounds who may be struggling to cope in some way. I work as an Integrative Counsellor / psychotherapist and offer short term or long term face to face counselling to both Adults and Children over the age of 12 and to Couples. I offer a generous discount for young people and I am flexible in working around school or college hours.
My consulting rooms are based at The Hove Clinic in Brighton/Hove and further rooms available in and around Brighton to Shoreham and Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill RH16 and RH17 and surrounding areas.
My approach is very friendly and I have effectively managed to form strong working relationships with all my clients whilst giving them the space to explore their feelings in a confidential and non-judgemental setting. Some of the issues in counselling I specialise in are: Stress Management & Coaching, Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Physical & Sexual Abuse, Thoughts of Suicide, Low Confidence, Relationship Issues, Anger Management, Anxiety and Bullying. I believe that each issue a person has is very much to their own and sometimes being able to talk to someone in confidence can help to encourage emotional growth and furthermore make changes to their life situation.
