Welcome to Southdowns Psychotherapy and Counselling, a private practice led by qualified therapist Alana Burton (Dip. TA Practice, MBACP) offering Psychotherapeutic Counselling.
Are you struggling with something you can’t seem fix alone? Or are you feeling overwhelmed by something that’s going on for you? Perhaps you have the feeling there’s something preventing you from leading an enjoyable and fulfilling life. If so, therapy can give you the emotional resilience and empathic support to help explore what is going on for you.
I meet and talk to people, like you, who may be experiencing some sort of emotional distress. I believe that all emotional distress, no matter how complex or confusing it is, will make sense in the bigger picture of your life. My role as a therapist is to listen carefully to your story. I look to understand what it is like to be you and to help you make sense of what’s going on.
We will work together to explore what’s going on for you as an individual person with your own history and experience. We will create a coherent narrative to support you moving forward. You won’t need to do this alone.
I work from locations in Washington (RH20) and at Bluecoat Sports in Horsham (Christ’s Hospital RH13). I see anyone looking to improve the quality of their life and relationships. No matter your reasons for wanting to have therapy, in my experience we are all seeking to be more emotionally fulfilled. Counselling can support us in achieving our goals.
