Susan Egan Psychodynamic counsellor , BN1
Are feelings of anxiety or low mood bringing you down? Does it seem like other people have got their lives sorted out but you haven't? I have the expertise to help you bring some understanding of what is going on, and bring more choice in your life.
Sometimes in life we need a little help. Counselling can be just what we need to get back some balance in our lives. Being able to talk through what's on our minds with a supportive, non-judgemental therapist can bring relief from our worries. It may also help to embrace life in more creative ways.
I have many years of experience in counselling people who have a range of issues and problems. Some of the issues that therapy is helpful for include: low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, work related issues, sexual abuse and bereavement.
I am a Psychodynamic therapist, the type of therapy that I offer is partly based on the idea, that difficulties and stress in the present, may have stemmed from early life experiences. Understanding this can help towards changing how we view life and relationships; especially in connection to recurring patterns of behaviour.
Counselling explores present and past feelings and the links between current and past relationships.
Sometimes I also like to include other approaches when it is appropriate, for example, Art Therapy, Mindfullness and CBT
I bring a rich and diverse background to my work as a therapist. I have a background in the visual arts, as well as art and design education. I have participated in psycho-therapeutic personal development groups, and many mindfulness based practice groups and retreats. I have also led many creative visual art self-exploration groups.
I am a BACP Accredited and Registered Counsellor; I work in the centre of Brighton at the New Road Psychotherapy Centre, as well as Haywards Heath.
