Lavanniya Langa, PG Dip.Couns, MBACP
I have been working in the field of counselling and therapy with women and men, over a wide range of ages and from all walks of life, also children (age 4 – 17) with a variety of issues.
I believe that everyone has the potential to change and is able to repair and/or rebuild their lives. I feel the most important aspect of this work is to have a good enough relationship with your counsellor so that you are able to talk about anything that concerns you.
My training is within Psychodynamic Counselling and Therapy. I have worked within a variety of settings, including the NHS, Schools, Womens centres and organisations that work with diverse / ethnic communities.
I see people for short term or open-ended.
I have consulting rooms available in Littlehampton, Steyning & Brighton.

Often people wonder how counselling or talking to someone can help. When you see a Counsellor/Therapist, you will have a consistency and continuity of a professional relationship, which provides you a space where you are being properly listened to. This can then allow you to think, and get a clear idea of what is going on for you. Together with your Counsellor/Therapist you can begin to explore and unpack your ideas, views, opinions, etc. This could lead you to more clarity and you may become more mindful of yourself.
If you would like to get stated, please call or email to set up an initial session.
We can talk about what you would like to get out of counselling and If you're happy to continue we will arrange to see each other on a weekly basis.
