Ayesha Daly (Dip Couns) MBACP
I am a qualified Humanistic Integrative counsellor practising in Sussex.
I believe everyone has the capacity to heal and move forward. I aim to provide a safe and trusting environment for working through the problems and issues you maybe facing within a confidential, non-judgemental environment.
For me therapy has been incredibly important, healing and rewarding whilst at times painful too. As a counsellor I hope to offer you what I have gained.
During counselling I focus on the individual as a whole. I encourage you to explore your feelings and understand your thoughts and actions with an emphasis on developing your self-awareness.
Each client is individual and I combine different humanistic approaches (Person-Centred, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis) to match your needs. What is most important, though, is not the methodology, but the trust and connection built between us within our sessions.
My role is not to diagnose, advise or tell you what to do. My role is to support and help you explore and understand what you're struggling with. We will work together to find out what it is you wish to change and how you can make those changes.
I understand how difficult starting counselling can be and will hope to answer any queries you have.
I specialise in (but not restricted to) anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, relationship issues, depression, panic disorder, feeling sad, phobias, family issues, affairs and betrayals, separation and divorce.

I offer our first session free of charge so you can check out whether what I offer is right for you before committing to an agreed amount of time.
Length of counselling is mutually negotiated between us at the beginning of our work together. Some clients may want short term counselling (typically 6 to 12 sessions), others may wish to have a longer term.
Each session, 50 minutes, is weekly and agreed in advance. Cancellations need to be provided with a minimum 24 hours notice via text to avoid being charged for the session.
Fees are £40 per session.
