My name is Pippa. I am a qualified and registered counsellor and psychotherapist and have been a practising Humanistic and Psychodynamic Integrative psychotherapist and counsellor for the past 17 years, I have worked in London, Eastbourne, Crowborough and am now based in Uckfield, East Sussex. I work weekdays and can arrange evening appointments. Some concessionary spaces are available for low income/unwaged as well as for students on counselling courses. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
If you have found my website, you may be thinking of finding help for yourself or someone else. This can be a difficult process, you may be asking yourself how do I find the right person? Is that person skilled and qualified? Will I like that person...will they like me? You may have a good idea of what you need and want from Counselling and Psychotherapy, or are looking for a particular approach. Either way, my website is designed to help you make the choice that is right for you.
Being an "integrative" practitioner means that I am trained in a number of approaches, and work differently with each client, in ways that seem appropriate for that person. I use ideas that are both psychodynamic and humanistic. Don’t worry too much about what this means, although you may want to Google some of the approaches that inform my practice which, amongst others. are:
Object Relations theory,
Sometimes, I invite clients to use creative methods (ie sandtray, objects, pictures, art and mark making etc) if appropriate. You may or may not want to try this, it’s your choice entirely.
Types of Life Experiences I Work with
I am experienced in helping clients who have difficulties with many of life's ups and downs, including :
This list is not exhaustive, we all encounter different problems and challenges during our lives. Counselling and Psychotherapy is one way of enabling us to understand ourselves better and find better coping strategies, become more resilient and make good, lasting decisions, whatever our particular life challenges are.
My practice is in Uckfield, within easy reach of Crowborough, Buxted, Lewes and Brighton, East Sussex.
I am close to bus routes to and from Crowborough, Brighton, Lewes and Eastbourne, with the bus stop about a 2 minute walk. There is plenty of street parking at no cost.
There are 4 shallow steps in the path to the house, and internal stairs up to the room. I am able make alternative arrangements if access is not possible because of mobility. Please ask.
Occasionally, clients are unable to commit to a once weekly session because of work or some other long standing commitment. Providing we can meet at least once a month, I am able to offer sessions by Skype.
I am able to offer weekday sessions from 9am until 2pm during the day, as well as some weekday evening appointments from 4.30.
