About me

I am a qualified counsellor working in Hastings. I have a private and comfortable room in a residential area. The counselling I offer is humanistic and integrative, this means I use a range of therapeutic and creative approaches depending on the person you are and what you would like to gain from therapy. The sessions I offer will be one to-one and on an open ended basis depending on your needs. Maintaining confidentiality and having an non judgemental approach are a key factor in my work as a counsellor . Life's experiences and times of discomfort and distress can be challenging at times . In counselling these issues can be explored together to support you in understanding yourself.

If you would like to call for more information or to book an assessment my contact number is 07731849773 or email me on michelleodonnell@hotmail.co.uk first assessment is free.

Although my practice is at a residential setting home visits could be negotiated depending on circumstance.

Member organisations


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.
