About me

At times we can all go through periods of our lives when we are struggling and need some extra support. If this sounds familiar then maybe talking to a Psychotherapist would help ?

Are you noticing yourself saying or thinking things like : -
`I feel really anxious, my heart was pounding so much I thought I was going to have a heart attack`
` it came from nowhere, I was suddenly really angry and it scared me what I could be capable of `
`I don't understand I used to be able to do things like this without worrying, now I feel really anxious even thinking about starting it`,
` I find Im really struggling to get to sleep, I have a lot of racing thoughts`

Whether you have a specific concern that you would like to work on or a more complex problem that requires a more in-depth exploration into your behaviours, feelings, and thought processes; I feel it is really important to offer my clients a safe space in which we work collaboratively. This enables you to explore your difficulties that are causing you to feel blocked or stuck in the here and now. For example relationship issues, sexual identification, LGBT issues, Eating disorders, stresses at work, bi-polar, specific anxiety, generalized anxiety, depression, anger, sexual abuse, loss, grief, phobias, and drugs or alcohol worries, etc. You're not alone - all of us can at times feel quite lost, confused and isolated which can feel quite debilitating and scary.

My name is Zee Finch, I am a fully qualified Person-Centred counsellor / psychotherapist, experienced in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT) and Mindfulness Based Approach.

Here is an brief outline to give you an idea about each approach :

Person Centred:
Person-Centred approach is based on the theory and philosophy of Carl Rogers.
It is a non-directive approach to being with another; that believes in the others potential and ability to make the right choices for him or her self, regardless of the therapist's own values, beliefs and ideas.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT):
CBT cannot remove your problems as they were experiences that happened, but it can help you deal with them in a more positive way. It is based on the concept that your thoughts, feelings, physical response and behaviours are linked, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a repetitive cycle.
CBT aims to help you change this cycle by breaking down an overwhelming problems into smaller parts, and this can enable you to see how to change the negative patterns to improve the way you feel.

Mindfulness Based Approach:
Mindfulness Based Approaches are designed to deliberately focus one’s attention on the present experience in a way that is non-judgmental. Mindfulness has its roots in Eastern techniques, in particular Buddhist meditation.

I run my therapy practice from Hove, East Sussex, easily accessible from Brighton. Or If you are not able to get to this location I also offer counselling and psychotherapy sessions via Skype.

As a counsellor and psychotherapist I work with adults, adolescence and couples on a 1-1 basis offering sessions as either open-ended or for a specific time period. We would work together collaboratively on the goal or goals you have bought into therapy. At times other issues come to the surface, if at the time or at a later date you wish to explore these concerns I would be happy to continue to work with you.

I also work as a counselling psychotherapist at The Priory in Hove near Brighton, where I offer individual 1-1 therapy as well facilitating group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT). I offer a relaxed and non-judgemental empathic space in which to explore your feelings and goals confidentially. Depending on the individual persons needs I facilitate from either Person-Centred or a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) modality or a combination of both approaches. This helps to provide the foundations for you uniquely to explore what has brought you into therapy.
