BACP Accredited counsellor - Brighton & Hove
My name is Simon Arthur-Smith. I am an experienced counsellor who is committed to providing effective and cost-effective counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and totally non-judgmental environment. I am an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and a member of EMDR UK & Ireland (the UK's professional Association of EMDR clinicians). I am based in Brighton & Hove.
I counsel individuals (adults only, sorry no under-18s) one-to-one on either an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period - my aim as a counsellor is to enable you to improve your quality of life and live life more fully.
I offer a FREE initial consultation, so that you can come and meet me and decide, without obligation, whether I am the right counsellor for you. If we go on to work together, one-hour sessions cost £45 for all appointments other than those held on Saturdays.
I have a decade's experience of getting results; here is a sample testimonial from a satisfied client (in this instance a professional footballer, formerly playing for Brighton & Hove Albion F.C.):
"I needed someone who I could trust and talk to about the problem which I needed help with. From the moment I met Simon I knew he was the right person for me. I felt like I could explain everything and was at ease speaking to him. I feel as [though] I have changed as a person [and been] helped to live [life] better. I would pass Simon’s contact details on to anyone looking for counselling because I know he is the best. Thank you very much Simon for the support you have given me though our meetings."
I am experienced in counselling clients who are having difficulties with:
I also offer EMDR.
I have two Brighton & Hove counselling practices. My main practice is very close to Hove railway station; I offer sessions here six days a week. I also offer a limited number of sessions (currently Wednesday-only) from rooms on Church Road in Hove, close to Hove Library. Both practices are within convenient travelling time of Portslade, Southwick, Shoreham-by-Sea, Steyning and Lancing. Parking in the vicinity of both is straightforward.
