Counselling in Eastbourne and Seaford

What We Do

You Are Important Counselling aims to assist people who are struggling with all sorts of issues that hold them back in life. The counselling service is provided by Claire - who offers a free initial meeting of twenty minutes. This time gives an oportunity for both counsellor and client to decide whether they feel they can work together.

At the end of this initial meeting Claire will suggest a starting point to the client in terms of number of sessions, cost, etc.

Claire charges £40 a session.

Claire can help people who are struggling with issues such as

  • Complex bereavement
  • Low self esteem
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Sexual abuse
  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Body image
  • Emotional abuse
  • Stress
  • And more.

Claire is passionate about seeing people move forward in their lives.

The counselling sessions are held weekly, for fifty minutes, and are held either in Seaford or in Eastbourne. During the sessions Claire helps people to be heard, felt, and understood.

Claire is sensitive in working at a pace that suits the client. Her techniques help the client unpack the issues that are getting in the way. Claire will often skillfully challenge the issues and explore the possible root causes of them. This will help the client to clarify and change perspective on the issues that are present.

Claire works in a gentle manner, that seeks to enable the client to explore the issues and the underlying causes. Claire will challenge and help reframe the issues, so that the underlying beliefs are exposed. These beliefs often lead to negative, destructive or self-sabotaging behaviour. The aim of the sessions is to move forward towards resolution and new perspective.
