Alcohol and Drug Counsellor in Brighton and Hove

Ben Middleton

Counselling for individuals affected by drugs or alcohol

I aim to support you in achieving the changes you want.


You may want to reduce your alcohol consumption; stop drinking or taking drugs altogether, or perhaps you just want to try and understand what is going on for you. Alternatively, you may be coping with having someone in your life with a harmful relationship to drugs or alcohol. Whatever your goal, I provide a non-judgemental approach to enabling you to move forward.I also work with people affected y trauma


I start with you as a unique individual and work to help you resolve the challenges you face. I don’t have a preconceived idea about what works, instead, I tailor my approach to suit you and your circumstances. I have worked both with people going through the twelve steps and those who have found that isn't quite right for them.


I am happy to work with you on short term practical ways to manage your current situation. But I can also work with you over the long term to really understand what is driving your problematic relationship with drugs or alcohol.


I recognise that many people face physical barriers to accessing counselling and I work from a fully accessible counselling room. For people with severe mobility problems, I will consider home visits.
