Sarah Brown EMDR
I am a trauma informed psychotherapist counsellor and EMDR practitioner. I specialise in working with people who have experienced early life trauma, abuse or neglect. These experiences can have symptoms like generalised anxiety disorder, panic, phobias, PTSD, low self-esteem, stress, anxiety or depression.
I have over 18 years experience as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor and so I'm able to adapt my approach to help you with what you need. Whether it’s Couples counselling or individual psychotherapy, CBT or EMDR my approach to our work together will be geared to helping you cope with distress and resolve the underlying difficulties.
I work in a collaborative and ethical way and I offer a safe, confidential setting where we work at your pace and follow your needs.
I'm a fully qualified BACP accredited and registered Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and EMDR Practitioner. I have further training in couples counselling, CBT, and Brainspotting. I regularly attend CPD courses and conferences.
I am Clinical Supervisor and have many years experience supervising and teaching trainee counsellors.
EMDR & CBT can be used to target specific traumatic experiences. In an initial session we can discuss your needs and think about what will be most helpful for you. Whichever approach you prefer, my aim is to help you develop your capacity to cope and move on from your distressing feelings.
I have counselled in higher education and in the voluntary sector. I have a varied professional background in education, training and in business.
My consulting room is in Hove, near a good bus route and parking is easy.
