I am a qualified humanistic counsellor based in Eastbourne (right by the station) and Hove (10 minutes from the station). I aim to provide a warm, non-judgemental, supportive service where you can feel heard and we can look together at what is concerning you.
You may be struggling to cope with an upsetting or challenging situation, or face problems in your relationships with friends, colleagues, family or your partner. You may be feeling overwhelmed with anxiety, stress, depression, loneliness or any number of emotions. These are just some of the reasons people come to counselling but there are many more. Alternatively you may not know exactly what you would like to speak about but have a sense that it might be useful to talk to someone.
The humanistic counselling approach I use involves me listening and exploring alongside you rather than telling you what to do. I hope that we can build a safe and trusting relationship where you feel able to open up in your own time.
As well as providing a confidential space to talk about issues you may not normally feel able to discuss, counselling can help you to become more self-aware, for example of your feelings, your beliefs and what happens in your relationships with other people. It may help you to come to terms with different aspects of your life, see things from another perspective or try out new ways of behaving.
Please get in touch by phone or email if you would like to arrange an initial meeting. For more information about me and my counselling approach please visit my website: www.alisonbriggscounselling.co.uk
