About us

The Palmeira Counselling and Psychotherapy Practice is an independent therapy practice staffed by a team of qualified and experienced counsellors and psychotherapists.

Collectively our therapists have many decades of experience in helping people from all walks of life who are experiencing emotional distress or trauma. Most of our therapists also have particular experience of working with young people aged 16 to 28 years of age.

Counselling and Psychotherapy can offer you a safe and confidential place where you can begin to address unresolved or painful issues and feelings that are weighing you down. The process of therapy can be challenging and hard work, but the benefits can be measurable: a tangible improvement in physical and mental well-being, increased confidence and sense of emotional resilience, and a greater ability to recognise and manage feelings and difficult situations.

People seek out counselling and psychotherapy for many reasons, including:

Abuse (childhood or adult)
Addiction (of any type)
Angry feelings
Anxiety, stress, compulsive worrying
Bullying (school, home, workplace)
Developmental disorders (autism, aspergers)
Disability or Ill-health
Disordered eating
Existential issues
Identity issues
Low self-confidence/ self-­esteem
Loss (bereavement, divorce, redundancy, separation issues, etc)
Obsessive compulsive disorder
Panic attacks and phobias
Relationship issues (past or present)
Suicidal thoughts and feelings
Transitions (through adolescence, mid-life, redundancy, etc)
Trauma (childhood or adult)
Work related stress

Our therapists are trained and experienced in aiding you with any of these matters, and more.

We have a therapist available to meet with you Mondays to Saturdays at various times during the morning, afternoon or evening. We aim to find a time that is right for you. Come and see us for counselling in Brighton and Hove.
