Nora Allali-Carling MBACP Counselling & Psychotherapy
The Therapy & Life Centre
218 Brighton Road
Sometimes life’s demands can become overwhelming and we need time and space to work them out.
Counselling can facilitate your development and enable you to heal through a process of self -reflection.
In this safe space, I can provide the environment in which you can explore what is troubling you, without the fear of judgement, or the intrusion of someone else’s opinions.
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist (MBACP) who has experience of supporting clients through a wide variety of issues. I believe the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the context in which healing and growth can - and will - take place. I will not claim to be an expert in your life, or offer advice. My aim is for you to be more fully yourself, with the freedom to grow and the ability to change.
As a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), I am bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in counselling and psychotherapy, and am subject to the Professional Conduct Procedure.
My work is 'person-centred' which means you and your unique issues and needs are my central concerns. The benefits of counselling can include increased confidence and self-esteem, an ability to cope better, clarification of confused thoughts and feelings, personal insight and the potential to move forward and grow. Because Your Life Matters.
