About me

Hi and welcome to my page. I’m Eve and I am a qualified and registered counsellor working with individual adults. I have experience working with range of clients within a broad context, such as clients who are experiencing generalised anxiety, depression, bereavement and other loss, relationship and family issues.

In addition to this I have in-depth experience and knowledge working with individuals and their family members who are dealing with gambling addiction, or gambling related issues. This also extends to other addictions and compulsive behaviours.

I offer short or long term counselling in Brighton and Hove and the surrounding areas. I also offer sessions remotely by telephone or on-line via Zoom, these appointments are open to anywhere in the UK. 

How can counselling help you?

You may have clear idea of what counselling is and what you want to begin with, or maybe you feel unsure with what is wrong but know things just don’t feel right. Maybe you’ve been affected by a recent event in your life or perhaps past events keep resurfacing? The truth is we can all feel overwhelmed, stuck or alone with our problems, so it is understandable that at these times we might look for support in facing them. 

Counselling can support you on gaining greater insight into the issues you are facing and see how you can start to make better healthier choices moving forward. Counselling is not about giving you advice, but empowering you to make your own choices that are right for you.  Speaking to trained professional can support us to make sense of these challenging and difficult times 

I work from a Person- Centred Approach, where the focus is on the individual’s ability to grow and develop in a way that is best for them. As a counsellor I offer an environment that is safe and free of judgement, where the journey of self-discovery is encouraged and supported. Where you will be empowered to examine life and make new meaningful choices within it. 

What Now?

If you think you would like to explore the possibility of having counselling further please contact me via email or phone. We can then arrange to have a free 20- minute consultation. This gives us the opportunity to talk about what you would like to gain from counselling, for you to ask any questions you may have, as well as discussing the practicalities such as cost, cancellations, frequency, etc.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
