Welcome to Southdowns Psychotherapy and Counselling, a private practice led by Alana Burton (Dip. TA Practice, MBACP).
Are you struggling with something you can’t seem fix alone? Perhaps you need to support to work through something together with your partner in couples therapy? Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed by something that’s going on for you? Therapy sessions provide an understanding and challenging environment through which you can develop emotional resilience and experience optimal growth.
I meet and talk to people, like you, who may be experiencing some sort of emotional distress. I believe that emotional distress, can be complex and confusing. It can also be viewed as a valid emotional response to a particular experience. My role as a therapist is to help you increase your understanding of yourself and your situation. I will support you to make better use of existing resources. We can also develop new resources to help you change and grow.
Together we will work 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.
My location is in the village of Washington (RH20). I see individuals and couples looking to improve the quality of their life and relationships. I also offer psycho-educational groups and group therapy. No matter your reasons for wanting to have therapy, in my experience we are all seeking to be more emotionally fulfilled. Counselling and psychotherapy can support us in achieving our goals.
