Counselling, Psychotherapy and Supervision in Lewes
Thank you for visiting my site
My name is Andrew Faulconbridge, I am a counsellor and psychotherapist with a practice in Brighton and Hove for the past 15 years, I now also have a practice in Lewes.
I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. Working with you on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
As counsellor/psychotherapist I have had a lot of experience helping people who have difficulties with :
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.
There really are no restrictions on what you can talk about
We will review our sessions as therapy progresses and I will work with you to establish what time-frame best suits you. Once counselling starts, we will regularly review our progress.
My practice is in Lewes within easy reach of Eastbourne, Brighton, Uckfield, Ringmer, Newhaven and Cooksbridge.
What's the difference between a counsellor and a psychotherapist?
A counsellor is generally regarded as working with current life events which are overwhelming on a short-term basis and a psychotherapist is for more long-term work related to reoccurring patterns
I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists.
