Counselling in Brighton & Hove
ABOUT SUSAN EGAN
I am a BACP Accredited and Registered Psychodynamic Counsellor, offering counselling in Central Brighton and Hove. I am a friendly and open minded therapist.
Sometimes in life we need a little help. 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, in confidence, with a supportive, non-judgemental therapist can bring relief from our worries. It may also help us to embrace life in more creative ways. Both open ended and short term therapy are available.
Talking things through with a trained therapist, who has positive regard and is interested in you, may help to relieve feelings of being burdened. This can result in inner tensions and stress being lessened. Therapy may also help to build self-esteem.
Some of the issues that therapy is helpful for include stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and bereavement.
My core training is Psychodynamic but I also like to include other approaches when it is appropriate. I have undertaken further training in Mindfulness, Transactional Analysis, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
I bring a rich and diverse background to my work as a therapist. I have a background in the visual arts, as well as art and design education. I have participated in psychotherapeutic personal development groups, and many mindfulness based practice groups and retreats. I have also led creative visual art self-exploration groups. In addition to this I have experience of a mindfulness based approach to therapy.
I abide by the code of ethics of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) is a membership organisation and a registered charity that sets standards for therapeutic practice and provides information for therapists, clients of therapy, and the general public.
My counselling practice, in both Hove and Brighton, is in comfortable rooms, which are easily accessible by public transport, and have parking nearby.
Counselling sessions are available in Hove, and in central Brighton, at the New Road Psychotherapy Centre Brighton, BN1 1UG.
