Eileen Kemp MBACP, PGDip
*ONLINE DURING THE CURRENT CRISIS*
Do you want to make a positive change in 2019? Let me help you look forward to a happier future. See more about me at www.summerhousecounsellinglewes.co.uk
Counselling has changed my life for the better and I chose to train as a psychodynamic therapist to help others benefit in the same way. My approach places a strong emphasis on the relationship between client and therapist - in other words between you and me.
With you, I will explore the sources of your problems and deal with the underlying issues, not just try to find a way to cope with them. I believe that only by making peace with the past can you look forward to a happier and more fulfilling future.
Should you choose to join me in this process, at first we will work together on how you feel today, what brought you to me and what you hope to gain from our time together.
Whilst the simple act of describing your feelings is in itself always of huge benefit, it can lead us gently to examine the more fundamental issues that can remain concealed as we go through our day-to-day lives. I can help if you are experiencing anxiety, depression, loss, relationship difficulties, PTSD, empty nest syndrome, and a range of other emotional issues.
If you think I might be the right therapist for you, please contact me to arrange a free 30 minute meeting to see if we can work together. Should we then proceed, our 50 minute sessions will be in a calm, quiet, safe and confidential environment near the heart of Lewes. There is ample parking and we are easily accessible from the county and beyond by road, rail and bus.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
