Our therapists

Each of our therapists brings their own unique approach, experience and training to the counselling and psychotherapy services we provide.

Our counsellors and psychotherapists have a great deal of experience helping our clients face any personal issues that are affecting their lives.

At your first appointment with us, we will help you decide which one of our Brighton therapists might be the best counsellor or psychotherapist for you. Finding the right therapist is an important first step.

There are a number of ways our counsellors in Brighton may be able to help

We provide support through short, medium and longer-term personal counselling, psychotherapy and psychoanalysis for individuals as well as relationship therapy for couples. We have many years of experience working with most personal issues.

Appointments are available Mondays to Saturdays.

The professional profiles of our team of experienced therapists can be found below. Please get in touch if one of us might be able to help.

"I learned a lot about myself and about the relationships I make with other people. I was able to see where I was going wrong and I now make better personal choices. Thank you, again."

"I was able to confront many issues which I had so far chosen to ignore despite their negative effects on my personal relationships and happiness. I would have no hesitation in recommending (One Therapy) to anyone looking to improve their relationships and self-esteem."

My therapist was completely non-judgemental which allowed me to be totally honest in the sessions and say how I was feeling without reservation. I felt comfortable talking with him and it was a really valuable experience that I would thoroughly recommend.

Therapy helped me through a difficult time. I gained so much insight into myself and my life. My first experience of therapy was excellent. I am so grateful to One Therapy for this.
