Alcohol Counsellor in Eastbourne and Bexhill
Counselling for individuals
When we talk to someone who understands the problems we are facing, on a deeper level, we find relief; having the space to talk freely without judgement and the opportunity to explore how to make the changes we want, for a better life.
I offer a safe, supportive therapeutic space for you to talk about what's happening for you. I will support you to overcome your difficulties, learn coping strategies and help you to build resilience.
Counselling gives you the opportunity to understand your relationship with your alcohol use, so you can make effective change to the way you think and ultimately, a positive change in your quality of life.
Is someone you care for affected by alcohol or drug misuse?
If you have a partner or family member with an addiction can affect individuals and the family on many levels. It can be a lonely and exhausting experience having a relationship with someone who has an addiction. You may feel isolated and looking for emotional support.
Counselling provides a safe supportive therapeutic space to help you cope better with these challenges, address your own needs and learn to cope better with a family member or loved one living with addiction.
Appointments for partners and family members may include the following;
• Promoting self-care and well-being
• Stress management
• Understanding addiction
• Understanding the recovery process
• Coping and resilience skills
• Building relationships and strong connections
• Thriving and personal goals
• Supporting someone towards recovery
• Supporting the addicted person through recovery
As an Integrated Counsellor, I use a variety of skills to help you explore and understand what's happening for you. These therapies include Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). I work as a counsellor in the alcohol and substance misuse counselling service for East Sussex.
I also work for Cruse Bereavement Care as a Bereavement Counsellor, Frontline19, counselling NHS staff as a result of Covid-19 and have been a Samaritan for a number of years. I am a member of The National Counselling Society which means I work within the ethical framework as set out by the association.
