Therapy with a Counsellor in Brighton & Hove and Sussex

Who we are

Hello welcome to our website

We really understand how hard it can be to reach out when you’re feeling vulnerable. We offer a free initial meeting online… to ensure you feel comfortable. We will be gentle and empathic and non judgemental so try and reach out .. we respond by text, call or WhatsApp on
+ 44 7944 525304 and speak with Trish …

We are a group of experienced BACP registered counsellors in Brighton and Hove and we work in the whole of the surrounding Sussex area. We have access to both female and male therapists

During COVID 19 we’re still offering counselling via online video sessions on Skype, Zoom or Vsee, and also telephone sessions. We have also just June 2022 started Face to Face sessions from the Hove location, and now at the Patcham location. This latter is on 5 & 5a bus route and has no parking restrictions

Please contact +44 7944 525304 for further information

We offer limited home visits for 1-1 counselling within the central Brighton & Hove town centre .
These home visit appointments are available within day time hours for clients who have difficulty getting into our work premises based near to Seven Dials in central Brighton and Hove.
This part of our service would work for people that find it difficult to leave home ib>poplarcounselling@ntlworld.com

We also have two experienced supervisors who offer clinical Supervision for Counsellors and trainee counsellors, and to all other professionals who require Supervision as part of their ongoing practice.

Sessions usually run for between 50mins - 1.5 hours which is BACP's minimum monthly minimum requirement for counsellors. There is some reduction of fees for counsellors in training so please ask us.

We are also starting in end of August/ September 2022 to offer group supervision for Counsellors in training, in a group of 3 or 4, for 1.5hrs to 2hrs each paying £28 per session. This will be from a Patcham, Brighton & Hove location

Please ask us for details and costs of this part of our service.

We are all registered and/or Accredited members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) &/or on BACP Register and adhere to their ethical framework. Each of us as a counsellor, work from either a Person Centred or humanistic perspective in our counselling sessions. This means that we believe that you are the expert on your own experiences, not us and you know what hurts and what you want to bring into sessions and we will be alongside. We also offer creative art methods if the person wants to utilise these…

Individual sessions

We are all psychotherapists/counsellors in Brighton and Hove with a wide range of experience and we will work with any issue in general counselling that you bring into sessions. We have particular experience working with the following:

Personal relationship issues, Domestic Violence (women only), Anxiety; Childhood Sexual Abuse; Loss and Bereavement; Depression including post-natal depression (PND); Anger and Anger Management; Suicide and Suicide bereavement; issues that affect people diagnosed with mental illness; issues around Miscarriage; and people with physical illhealth issues including cancer. One of us also works with addiction issues

Our appointments/session times last for between 50 minutes to 1 hour 25 minutes and usually happen once a week at the same time but we can do sessions more frequently if you require.
We recommend booking an initial 6 sessions to allow the relationship to build up. We can then review to see how it is going for you and what further sessions you choose to book, this is your choice
Sessions can be time limited to an agreed certain number of sessions, or be open-ended and ongoing to suit your needs, again it is your choice.

We work in the daytime, evening and weekends. We mainly see people online but have also started seeing clients face to face with a male therapist in Hove, and another location in Brighton and Hove with our other therapists from a Patcham location.

We all also offer telephone and internet-based counselling or skype /Vsee / Zoom sessions. All sessions need to be paid for prior to or immediately after the session by direct bank payment or via paypal.


We offer Clinical Supervision, both individual 1-1, and group, to Counsellors and other professions who require outside supervision for their practice. These sessions follow BACP's Guidelines and so would normally be for one and a half hours per month for qualified therapists. For trainees this may be more frequent depending on the training course ratio requirement

Appointments for Supervision are available in the day, evenings and Saturday. We offer a sliding rate of fees of between £55-£65 per hour with some concessions available for counsellors in training. Please ask us.

Our fees

We charge for sessions on a sliding scale based on what you can afford to pay, as we feel it is important to offer client's as much accessibility to counselling as possible.

We have levels of fees:

  • £55 - £65 full price
  • £45 - £55 concessions

  • We offer an initial 30 -50 minute free session where you can meet with one of us
    ask questions and explore whether counselling is right for you.
