Eve Paez-Whittaker BA Hons, MBACP registered
My name is Eve and I am a qualified Person- Centred Counsellor based in Brighton. I offer an open impartial therapeutic relationship and I will provide you with a safe and non-judgemental environment where I will facilitate and support you in exploring thoughts and feelings that are troubling you. I have experience working with a range of clients within a broad context, however I have worked extensively with people who are experiencing addiction, mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, family and relationship issues.
What is Counselling?
You may have a clear idea of what counselling is and what you want to begin with. Maybe you have been affected by a recent event in your life or perhaps a past event keeps re-surfacing. Maybe you are unsure what is wrong but things just don’t feel right. You may feel stuck, lost or alone with your problems.
Coming to a professional counsellor will probably feel very different from talking with a friend or a family member - I am here to accept you for who you are. I work in a non-directive way, which means I believe that you are the expert on you. I am here to support you in your process and be beside you as we explore the things that are concerning you.
I work from a Person- Centred Approach, where we focus on the individual’s ability to grow and develop in a way that is best for them. I will place great emphasis on building a relationship of trust between us. My approach is really about human connection and relationship with others around us but most importantly with ones self. Counselling is a great opportunity for us to examine the difficulties and dilemmas that we all face from time to time in our lives. It enables us to gain insight and clarity and to hopefully move forward in our lives with an increased sense of identity, purpose and freedom.
I work with individuals, either face to face or remotely by phone and/or on-line. I am a registered member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), which means I run my practice under an Ethical Framework ensuring you a professional counselling relationship and service. I offer both long and short-term work - the choice is yours.
I work from a quiet and confidential space at The Space in Hove. I am fully insured.
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.

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.
