Welcome to my website. I am an experienced and effective addiction counsellor in Brighton and Hove and have helped lots of people find freedom from the struggles that they have had with their behaviour. If you are looking for an addiction counsellor in Brighton and Hove that can offer understanding, empathy and pragmatic solutions you have found the right page...
I offer a free initial consultation for you to find a way forward...
I am mainly working online or on the phone. I have lots of experience as a therapist of working remotely and it has proven to be very effective for clients. I also provide a limited number of face to face appointments at comfortable, roomy and clean consulting rooms in Hove where social distancing is observed. Email or call me to arrange a free 30 minute phone appointment to discuss a way forward.
Therapy with me is aimed at helping you to make sense of what's been happening, and for you to start to understand what has been at the root of the issues that have brought you to therapy. This is made possible through building a therapeutic relationship that is based on trust, empathy and compassion; one that gives you the space to be open and honest about your thoughts and feelings and to explore them in a collaborative environment. Be assured that all appointments with me are confidential and in line with all BACP ethical and professional standards.
I have considerable counselling experience in the public and private sector and specialise with substance misuse and addictions to drugs, alcohol, sex, porn, shopping, social media, and gambling. I understand the struggle of trying to stop or control something that is starting to get out of hand. Addictions do not discriminate and can affect anyone from any walk of life and the behaviour often makes no sense to the addicted person, let alone their loved ones. Be assured that I understand the struggle that you might be having, I have been practicing as an addiction counsellor in Brighton and Hove for over 10 years and have the experience to help you find a sustainable solution.
I also work as a counsellor with family members who are struggling with the behaviour of a loved one. It is often the case that a 'parallel process' occurs for the loved ones of addicted people. I understand the difficulties you might be having and have worked extensively with those that have a person close to them who struggles with an addiction. Please email or call for more information.
I am very experienced in delivering treatment programmes and offer a bespoke addiction treatment programme for those that are not able to commit to a residential service provider. This can be based on a 12 step model or can be tailored to promote a healthier relationship with the behaviour that has been problematic. This is more intense than a standard arrangement and usually involves written work and a much higher level of contact as compared to a weekly therapy session. Please email or call for more information.
