A warm hello to you. I know that it can be tricky to find the support you need but you're here now, and I welcome you. I hope that you'll find the help you're looking for. My name is Toni and I am a Counselling Therapist working in the Sussex region. You can find out a little more about me on my website here: https://www.coastal-counselling.co.uk/about-toni
It can be really hard to live in this world sometimes. You may feel overwhelmed, stuck, numb or lonely for example. Or perhaps something has happened in your life that you don't know how to manage alone such as a bereavement or job loss. It's normal to feel lost and scared sometimes, but you shouldn't have to cope on your own. I'm a humanistic counselling therapist. Essentially this means that I value you at the centre and focus on you as a whole person. How this looks in practice is that I will empathically and compassionately listen to you, and we can work together to make sense of your experiences and understand how they are impacting you at this moment. This is a collaborative process of exploration rather than me giving you advice. I offer your first session free of charge. I really look forward to hearing from you. Toni
