My name is John and I am based in Seaford, East Sussex.
I offer a confidential safe place to talk about the issues that are of concern to you. I work with a wide range of psychological and emotional issues including stress, anger, anxiety, relationship difficulties and self esteem.
How I Work
You may be feeling that your life is difficult, worrying or just lacking a sense of direction. Counselling can offer a safe and non-judgemental way to discuss your feelings in confidence.
I offer short or long term counselling for Adults aged 18+.
I work with a wide range of issues, anger, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, workplace issues and many others which may be impacting on your quality of life and emotional well being.
My training is in Transactional Analysis with additional training in Person Centred Counselling Skills. Transactional Analysis has at its heart, the belief that people are OK, that everyone has the capacity to think and that people can decide their own destiny. It also supports the belief that change is possible.
My style of working is empathic, gentle but focussed, allowing you the space and permission to talk, in confidence, without judgement.
The dark night of the soul comes just before revelation. When everything is lost and all seems darkness,then comes the new life and all that is needed.
Therapy sessions are usually weekly and last 50 minutes. I can see clients more frequently if required. I can also offer sessions via Skype.
Sessions generally take place at the same time and day each week. The number of sessions depends on the issue you bring to therapy. Usually an initial 6 sessions is recommended with ongoing therapy to be discussed between us at that point.
Current fees are £45 per session.
Fees are payable either in cash, by card of by BACS transfer on the day of the appointment. I can also accept cheques.
Cancellations within 24 hours of an appointment will be charged at the full rate. Outside of this there will be no charge.
I do not charge for the initial assessment meeting.
