Helen Davies MSc, Psychotherapist, Supervisor, UKCP Reg., CTA (P), PTSTA(P)
07976 605949 / 07976 605949
I'm a UKCP reg. psychotherapist with over 15 yrs experience of working with individuals, couples, groups & families in W Sussex.
My focus is to work with you to reflect on and resolve short or longer-term difficulties. For example, through therapy you can explore your stressful or anxious feelings, grieve your loss of a loved one, understand what is happening in your relationships, explore and come to terms with a life-changing illness, take space to decide what you want from your career, or share and make meaning of fears.
What is psychotherapy and counselling?
Psychotherapy and counselling offer the opportunity to talk to a qualified professional about certain aspects of your life in a safe and supportive environment. With an experienced therapist you can find ways of being helped to make sense of your concerns or experiences, which may have left you feeling uncertain or anxious. Seeking therapy can lead to the development of a more satisfactory, effective and fulfilled life
As a trained and experienced UKCP registered psychotherapist I offer long and short-term psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families.I work in private practice in West Sussex.
Additionally I hold a Diploma in Supervision and work with individuals and groups in West Sussex and Surrey.
Finally, I am an experienced teacher, examiner and supervisor (please see Supervision Profile) of Transactional Analysis and work with and on behalf of various registered training establishments across the south coast of England. I have experience of supervising students to exam success across a broad range of integrative, humanistic and art modalities.
I abide by the UKCP, EATA, IARTA, UKATA and Metanoia code of ethics, which are available for you to look up on line. I have a working knowledge of The BACP Ethical Framework and am currently a member of UKATAs Ethics and Professional Practice Committee.
