About me

My name is Agata Norris and I am an integrative counsellor and a psychologist in Worthing, West Sussex. I am trained integratively- it means that I apply various techniques and interventions to suit your needs and ways you see the world. I offer you the non-judgemental, empathic space where you can, at your own pace, find your answers, feel heard and understood.

Fundamental to my approach is the belief that we all have the potential to change, develop and lead happier lives if we really want to, by enabling greater freedom through self-exploration, self-awareness and self-responsibility. By gaining the awareness and insight, the process of your growth and lasting change can begin and the quality of your internal and external life can improve.

I have worked with clients with various issues, including: anxiety, low mood, substance misuse, parental issues, relational issues, domestic abuse, stress, adjusting to a new role, bereavement and loss, anger, low self-esteem, etc. I have a special interest in PTSD, trauma and transgender.

Further information

How can counselling help?
Counselling can help at difficult times in your life to understand what is happening to you and why. It can help for both short term work, concentrating on a particular problem, or it can be offered over a much longer period of time focusing on more deep-set issues. It can help you explore your feelings and begin to take control of your life. It can promote positive change and growth.

When can counselling help?
Counselling can help with many different issues in life including bereavement, unresolved loss, anxiety, and stress, unexplained feelings of anger, depression, abuse, relationship and family difficulties, low self-esteem and loss of confidence.
It can also help those who experience a long-standing general feeling of unhappiness and loneliness and cannot identify what the cause of this is. Counselling can help to explore these feelings and learn to understand them, and thereby gain insight and acceptance.

As a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I work to their ethical guidelines, and attend regular supervision and continuous professional development workshops.

I believe it is important to find a therapist that you feel comfortable working with and I know how difficult it can be to make that first move.

Please feel free to call me, in confidence, on 07533 513 415 for an informal discussion and with any questions you may have. If you prefer please send an e-mail to get in touch.
