Lindsey Light MA, PG Dip, Sup Dip. MBACP
I work with and have a good rapport with all kinds of people from many walks of life. I believe in the value and effectiveness of counselling and I think that it is one of the most useful tools there are to gain insight and to live a better life. I help people with many different issues; including anxiety and depression.
I have worked in several organizations counselling young people and adults. Currently I work in private practice offering counselling and supervision in Hove.
Life is a challenge at times and difficulties can come up that can be hard to navigate or work through alone. Sometimes problems feel overwhelming or leave us feeling stuck, this is when talking to someone who is non-judgemental and understands can really help.
Counselling is not always about going back into the past; it is also about being in the present and considering your current thoughts, behaviours and feelings. Coming to counselling is a way to give yourself time to explore areas of your life that you want to improve.Through counselling you will learn more about yourself and discover new perspectives.
Having counselling can help you to feel fulfilled and achieve a sense of well being that will help you make more satisfying life choices. You are always in charge of what you share and everything you share with me is confidential.
My aim is to help you find out what kinds of changes you would like to make and to help you to make those changes. Together we can explore and tackle any issues that may hold you back or stop you from living up to your full potential and enjoying your life to the fullest.
