‘In the waves of change we find our true direction’.
At the points in our lives when we feel like we are surrounded by change, we have an opportunity to remake ourselves. We can choose which parts we wish to take with us to build our future and which we no longer need. Whether change is imposed on us from the outside or it bubbles up from within us, it can leave us feeling out of control and stuck, unsure of what to do next. Whatever the feelings are that you are experiencing having a safe space to explore them and begin to make sense of what happens next can help you to take back control and choose your direction of travel.
I can offer you a place to be curious about what changes are possible for you, to explore your past and present so you can make choices about your future. As an integrative counsellor I am able to draw on a number of therapeutic approaches and we will work collaboratively to find out how I can best support you.
Because I know that counselling works best when you find the right person, I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation, so you can check if I’m the right person for you. Please contact me by email or phone with your availability and I will get back to you in 48 hours. More information about me is available on my website www.curiosityspot.co.uk

Catherine Lindsay-Davies Counsellor and Psychotherapist

Membership Number: 593
People can benefit from counselling for many reasons; to deal with thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be causing distress; for support in times of difficulty; or to seek greater self-awareness and fulfilment in life, enabling growth and deeper understanding. It is not always easy to speak to friends or family about difficult or personal issues and it can help to speak to a counsellor who will not judge you or tell you what to do. Counselling can give you the opportunity to be heard, to enable you to make your own decisions, in a supportive and confidential environment. If you think counselling could help you, please do get in touch and we can arrange an initial appointment to see how we can work together. I practice from a humanistic integrative approach which means that I use theories and techniques from various psychotherapeutic perspectives. I also use a relational analytic approach which uses the relationship between therapist and client to explore and deepen the work. We will initially  discuss the reasons for you seeking therapy and if we are happy to proceed, we will arrange an initial session in which you will have the opportunity to find out if you think counselling could help you and if so, we will work towards an agreed plan for our therapy. It is usual to plan for six or twelve sessions, with regular reviews to assess how the therapy is going and we can add or reduce the number at any time. There is no obligation to continue and you may finish therapy at any stage, although it is beneficial to work towards a planned ending. Sessions last for 50 minutes and are usually held at the same time each week, although fortnightly sessions are also available. I have a Masters degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Advance Clinical Practice), [...]

Are you feeling anxious, depressed, or overwhelmed? I hope I can help. I am a CBT and Psychodynamic Counsellor & Psychotherapist and I work with young people and adults. I have a lost of experience working with anxiety, social anxiety, performance anxiety, health anxiety and generalised anxiety. I work with young people 14+, students, and adults. Do you need help making sense of things, or managing difficult symptoms? Every person's journey through therapy is unique. Some people come to therapy because they have specific issues that they want to address, others to find out more about themselves or explore that nagging feeling something is not right. I work with a non-judgemental and open mindset, and have an LGBTQ+ affirmative approach, respecting every individual's chosen identity as equal and valid. Therapy is a collaborative undertaking, the therapeutic relationship is at its core. My theoretical approach is broadly psychodynamic and informed by these principles. We have a rich unconscious world that exists just out of awareness and influences much of what we do. I work with you to bring this into awareness. Difficulties in current relationships can often be understood through recognising the influence of the past. I work with to facilitate deeper understanding of the self as a route to mental wellbeing. I adopt a cross-modality therapeutic approach, to fit your unique needs.  After completing a Post Graduate diploma in Psychodynamic counselling in 2012 I went on to complete further post graduate trainings in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Systemic Family Theory, Creative Communication, and Working Online as well as a Masters in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I am a BACP and UKCP accredited Psychotherapist and a registered member of ACTO, the association for online therapists. I work with clients for short-term and long-term contracts, dependent on their needs. I practice face-to-face counselling in Brighton & Hove [...]

Life can have times of challenge. I am here to provide a supportive place for you to build your resilience and discover the resources that may feel hidden within yourself.   To feel comfortable to be creative and to be able to explore, I know that you need to feel secure and safe with me.

I work to ensure your security online as I am a trained online therapist, and I also train other psychotherapists and counsellors to work securely online.   I specialise in the following areas:
  • Trauma
  • Grief and loss
  • Children and Young People
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Neurological Diversity, including Autism Spectrum Conditions such as Asperger’s
  • Developing resources for resilience, including Trauma-sensitive mindfulness practices

Membership Number: 592
I am a friendly and fully qualified counsellor committed to providing a confidential and non-judgemental environment. I am an Accredited and Registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I have 10 years of experience in working with a diverse range of clients, including people who identify as LGBTQ+. For me, the heart of counselling is a good relationship between client and counsellor. This helps to create a safe and respectful setting for exploration, reflection and understanding of what is important to you. As we are all individual and unique, people will naturally need different things from counselling. I use an integrative, person-centred approach which means that we can work together in a way which best suits you, drawing from different techniques which will support you through the process of counselling. I will help you to reflect and explore to find your own solutions and your own methods of overcoming challenges. I believe that counselling should be completely non-discriminatory. As an essential part of this belief I work with a LGBTQ+/GSRD affirmative approach. I am also sensitive to issues surrounding BAME communities, race, ethnicity and culture as well as individuals’ religious beliefs. I am an Accredited member of the BACP and I am on their Register of Practitioners. I also adhere to their ethical framework for good practice, attend regular professional supervision and ensure I take part in continuing professional development training. I offer an initial session at a reduced rate. This is for us to discuss what has brought you to counselling and what your expectations of it are, as well as for you to be able to raise any questions or concerns you may have about counselling. It will also be a chance for us to see if we will be comfortable working [...]

I focus on the healing of inner systems through Self-leadership. The defences you have built around your vulnerability have served you to survive. Connecting to your inner parts and processes in a creative and caring dialogue brings awareness of who you really are and—finally—also healing. This is the essence of what is called Internal Family Systems Therapy; but it is also the core of Gabor Maté’s Compassionate Inquiry. I would like to facilitate this inner process. In the first video session we would try to find out if we can work with each other, if online counselling is the right way for you and how we can proceed. And we take it from there…

I am a counsellor specialising in working with anxiety. I offer long and short term counselling to adults through online video sessions via Zoom. Do you struggle with anxiety? Are you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or having trouble sleeping? Maybe you are feeling 'off', and want to feel like yourself again? Counselling can help. I provide a safe, confidential space for you to explore yourself with someone who is unrelated to your personal life and who won’t judge you.   I offer a free, 15-minute phone consultation when you contact me as I believe it’s important to find a counsellor you feel comfortable with. We will talk about what is troubling you and how I may be able to help.   At our first session, I will ask you some questions to help me understand how I can help you to find a way forward with your problems. During sessions, I will listen to you with the aim of helping you feel clearer about the extent and effect of your problems, and to help you recognise possible solutions. I work in a warm, understanding way to help you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours to achieve your goals. I may offer ideas to work on outside of the sessions, such as keeping a journal or carrying out exercises.   Please do get in touch if you have any questions or to book in your free phone consultation.
