My name is Andrew Faulconbridge, I am a counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor with a practice in Brighton and Hove for the past 17 years,
Having recently moved to the area I now also have a practice in Lewes.
I specialise in
I am a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor and psychotherapist and have worked and still working for several counselling organisations in Brighton and Hove, Eastbourne, Worthing and Surrey as a counsellor and supervisor.
My approach is a non-judgemental, warm and empathic therapeutic relationship. Working collaboratively, I aim to help people understand and express their emotions, gain different perspectives on a situation and develop meaningful and effective solutions for their lives.
What's the difference between a counsellor and a psychotherapist?
Counselling is generally regarded as working with current life events which are overwhelming on a short-term basis while Psychotherapy is for more long-term work related to reoccurring patterns.
Initial consultation session
What happens when we first meet?
It's important to feel comfortable working with me,
Our first session is about finding out if I am the right therapist for you and discuss what you hope to get from our work. You will be able to ask any questions you have, I'll ask you about what has brought you to therapy and I'll take you through some of the practicalities.
There is no obligation to continue working with me after this initial session.
If you decide to work with me we will arrange subsequent sessions at a mutually convenient time. Individual sessions are 50 minutes in duration and are weekly on the same day and time each week.
We will review our sessions as therapy progresses and I will work with you to establish what time-frame best suits you depending on what you want to achieve. Once counselling starts, we will regularly review our progress.
My practice is in Lewes, East Sussex within easy reach of Eastbourne, Brighton, Uckfield, Ringmer, Newhaven,Eastbourne and Cooksbridge.
