Jay Beichman PhD BACP Senior Accredited
Over 20 years experience. I came to counselling through going to see a counsellor myself. As I began to resolve my own issues I really appreciated the process of counselling. When I saw a pre-certificate course in counselling I did that just out of interest to begin with but realized by the end of it that I could become a counsellor and my own counsellor encouraged me to take it further. Hence I did a postgraduate diploma in counselling at the University of Brighton followed by the MA in counselling followed by most recently completing research about pluralistic therapy for which I have been awarded a PhD.
I worked for quite a few years voluntarily with the Brighton and Hove Federation of Disabled People and for Cruse as a bereavement counsellor. I also was a trainer for Cruse. I joined the Sussex Counselling organization and helped to organise seminars and edited their journal Sussex Counselling News. I have been in practice now since January 1997 and am accredited with the BACP.
I share a counselling space with colleagues and we see clients with all kinds of issues and also clients from EAPs who provide counselling for the NHS amongst others. For more information about how I work and testimonials please visit www.counsellinginbrighton.co.uk. I also used to work in mental health as a project worker for Brighton Housing Trust so I have a specialist interest in this area and work with those who have been psychiatrically 'diagnosed' but wish to explore their issues more holistically.
