  • What I Can Help with

    Counselling with Antony Page

    Counselling offers you the opportunity to explore issues which may be causing you great concern. Are you trying to cope with challenging or overwhelming emotions where you know you need to talk, but don’t know how?


    Anything can be the trigger for wanting to seek help, such as a recent or current unexpected life event. You may be worried about something from your past which you have not previously been able to talk about. Whatever the issue, then counselling can help you.


    Counselling is a very personal experience and for some people this could be just a few sessions and others may come for longer. You’ll gain a deeper understanding of your own experiences, whatever they may be, within a safe and confidential environment.


    Counselling can enable you to gain greater control over life’s challenges, so that you can find a way to move forward that feels right for you.

  • Suicidal Thoughts

    Having suicidal thoughts can be distressing but talking about it may be the first steps to understanding why you feel this way. In most cases when we have these feelings we don’t want to die but just want the pain to go away. Together we can work on what the triggers may be and in time and at a pace that suits you we can try and uncover what lies underneath the feelings of suicide. If you are at a critical stage with these feelings and waiting to talk to someone is not an option then I encourage you to seek immediate help. This could include:

    • Calling the Samaritans – 116123
    • Papyrus for Young people – Hopeline: 0800 068 4141
    • Shout – Text 85258
    • Visit your nearest A&E Department
  • Sexuality & Gender

    Our gender and sexuality is an intrinsic part of who we are. Coming to terms with that and embracing it is not always easy as there may be family or cultural issues at play. You may also be a parent or care giver who is struggling to come to terms with a loved one who has come out to you. Whatever the scenario, together we can explore what may be difficult and troubling for you.

  • Counselling

    What is Person Centred Counselling

    Counselling provides a place where you can come and talk in confidence. The Person Centred approach will allow you the freedom to explore your thoughts and feelings at a pace that suits you. I will be guided by you, but I won’t advise you. Instead, I'll try and help you make sense of what may be troubling you in a safe and non-judgemental environment.  I believe the answers lie within you and it’s my job to help you find those answers.

    How many sessions are needed

    Booking an initial session can often help in your decision about whether counselling is right for you. More importantly, as this is a one to one relationship, its crucial that we both feel we can work together to meet your needs. There is no pressure or obligation to continue after our initial session. The amount of sessions after our initial meeting and the content of the time together is flexible and will be agreed between us.

    Fees

    50 minute sessions are £50. Bundles of 5 pre-booked sessions are discounted to £200.

    A limited number of low-cost counselling sessions are available. Please contact me for further details.

    If you need to cancel a session

    Please give at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel a session. A cancellation charge will be applied for cancellations with less than 24 hours notice.

    Confidentiality

    Confidentiality is at the core of counselling and as such anything shared in our sessions is not disclosed to others. There are a few exceptions to this which I will discuss with you as part of our shared agreement.

     

  • REMOTE COUNSELLING

    Online Video Counselling

    I offer counselling sessions online using Zoom video via an App on your device or home computer.

    I know that for many video calls with friends and family was a lifeline for keeping in touch during the pandemic. It has also proven very effective for counselling, partly because we have become far more used to talking to each other this way.

     

    So long as you have a private space where you won’t be interrupted and it feels okay to talk, then there can be real benefits to video counselling. Removing the need to travel for appointments, saves time and money, and can take away the stress of getting there on time. Counselling can be quite emotional at times so to know you are at home after a session can help, allowing you time to reflect and sit quietly with your thoughts.

  • Contact me

    Currently I'm only offering counselling sessions by remote online video.

    Areas covered also include the Greater Brighton area and Sussex.
