Susan Egan PGDip - Psychodynamic Counsellor MBACP (Accred)
Are feelings of anxiety bringing you down? Does it seem like other people have got their lives sorted out but you haven't? I have the expertise, as a therapist, to work with you to try and bring some understanding of what is going on.
Have you lost someone close and your life feels empty? Maybe you have relationship issues? Do you feel you have lost your way in life? Sometimes in life we need a bit of support. Counselling can be just what we need to get back some balance in our lives. Being able to talk through what's on our minds with a supportive, non judgemental counsellor can bring relief from our worries. It may also help us to embrace life in more creative ways.
Some of the issues that therapy is helpful for include low self esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, work related issues and bereavement.
I am a BACP Accredited and Registered Counsellor; I work in the centre of Brighton at the New Road Psychotherapy Centre, which is in the same road as the Theatre Royal, as well as Hove and Haywards Heath.
I am experienced in counselling people who have a range of issues and problems. Therapy sessions are on the same day, at the same time, every week and last for 50 minutes and are confidential; I abide by the code of ethics of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Deciding to have counselling is sometimes a brave step, and I would be happy to talk through any concerns and questions during an initial session. This initial session will give you the opportunity to decide whether or not you would like to have the counselling that I have to offer. Both short term and open ended therapy are available.
