Tansley Grace - Accredited Counsellor, MBACP; MA
07952 138 244
I am a fully qualified counsellor on the BACP Accredited Register with particular experience working with self harm, anxiety, depression and abuse.
Life is not always easy and for whatever reason you may find yourself facing any one of these and perhaps other difficulties such as stress, loss, separation, or issues around life changes such as marriage, separation, employment and retirement. Experiencing any of these things may lead you to feel lonely, isolated and not knowing where to turn to for help.
Counselling can offer you the opportunity to explore those difficulties in a safe non-judgemental environment. The aim of counselling is not to tell you what to do but to offer you support as you talk through your own thoughts, feelings and behaviours in an attempt for you to gain a better understanding of your experiences.
Exploring issues you struggle with can be a difficult process. Therefore you will be encouraged to work at a pace that is comfortable for you and supported in how to make the best use of your counselling sessions. The aim of counselling is to offer a safe space where you as a unique individual can feel listened to as you work toward finding ways to manage life's problems more effectively.
As a Humanistic counsellor I understand that everyone has their own unique and individual way of seeing and experiencing the world. Through counselling I aim to offer you the opportunity to experience a working relationship where you are fully accepted as an individual and helped to find solutions which best suit you.
I have a ground floor counselling room in Littlehampton which is warm and comfortable and has good access for disabled users. I am able to offer both open ended long term or short term work and flexible appointments times.
As a member of the BACP I am committed to its Ethical Framework of Good Practice. I am also a member of the Association of Christian Counsellors.
I also specialise in working with self harm. The number of people turning to this as a means of coping is on the increase yet it still tends to be a very secretive and misunderstood behaviour. For many it helps them to survive and cope with difficult circumstances but keep it hidden as they live in fear of judgement. I aim to offer a safe space where you can openly explore your behaviour, what place it has in your life, without judgement.
As a friend or relative of someone who self harms you may also be affected by their behaviour as it is often difficult to see a loved one harm themselves. If this is you I can also work with you to help you explore your own feelings around this.
Please feel free to call for further information.
