Elizabeth Joy Davis, PgDip, BSc (Hons), MBACP. Brighton & Hove Counsellor.
I am a qualified Humanistic Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), working within the BACP's Ethical Framework. I use Humanistic and Psychodynamic approaches as well as elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Gestalt.
So what does this actually mean?
As an Integrative Counsellor, I use elements of various different theories to form a unique approach to counselling. The way I work with each client depends on the issues presented and the number of sessions we have, but above all, it depends on what works best for you.
My aim is to help you feel safe and secure enough to explore and the way we work together will evolve from this exploration.
I have experience working with areas such as anxiety, depression, postnatal depression, OCD, phobias, addiction, abuse, family and relationship issues (including separation & divorce), bereavement, anger, low self-esteem and many more.
I offer both short and long term counselling and have daytime and evening appointments available.
I am based in the Brighton Consulting Rooms, which is located next to Preston Park train station. Easily accessible for anyone based in Brighton, Hove, Falmer, Burgess Hill and beyond.

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.
