About me

My name is Dana and I run The Sanctuary Counselling Centre in Steyning, West Sussex.  I am accredited with the NCS and am a trained Humanistic Counsellor.

I offer both long and short term counselling depending on the needs of each client. I believe that a good therapeutic relationship is paramount in order for therapy to have the desired affect, I therefore offer a free consultation which gives us the opportunity to meet and discuss your needs.

I specialise in working with children and young people of all ages. I also offer family therapy with two or more members of the family. I work from a converted scandinavian BBQ lodge which offers a safe, creative, relaxed and non-judgemental environment in which to explore any issues you may be experiencing.  As well as talking therapies I work creatively which can be a safe way to explore emotions and feelings in a non verbal, non intrusive way.

My practice is based in the village of Steyning and due to its semi rural location offers free parking and easy access.  For clients unable to travel I can offer you a home or school/college visit.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
