Phoenix Therapy Practice
Phoenix Therapy Practice is a not for profit Community Interest Company, set up to benefit the local community of Brighton and Hove by providing a range of mental health services for those with mild, moderate and severe mental health difficulties.
We are a team of experienced practitioners offering a wide selection of psychological help including individual counselling, psychotherapy and group work.
We aim to make a significant and positive contribution to the emotional well being and mental health of adults, couples, children and families in Brighton, Hove and the surrounding areas.
We are committed to providing high quality affordable therapeutic treatment by providing effective, accessible therapies.
As a result of funding from BHCC, The Sussex Community Fund and Krebsalliance, Phoenix Therapy Practice is offering a number of free or low cost counselling sessions for people who are in financial difficulties, whether or not as a result of Covid19.
We are committed to opening these sessions to marginalised and underrepresented groups.
These subsidised sessions are for people who:
- Are living with chronic physical illness and are seeking emotional support.
- Or are struggling with Borderline/EUPD personality disorder and wish to undertake a DBT programme.
- Or are in need of counselling or therapy and do not have the finances to pay full fee
Our philosophy is that no one therapy is suitable for all, and so offer a free initial consultation with an experienced practitioner to explore what kind of therapy or support would be most helpful.
Following an initial consultation, we will refer you to the most suitable practitioner, taking into account what your requirements and wishes are, when you are available, and how much you can afford.
We aim to be a Centre of Clinical Excellence and take pride in the fact that our practitioner community is well supported through supervision, community meetings and CPD events. This then helps them to support you in the best possible way.
We have disabled access.
