Welcome to Southdowns Psychotherapy and Counselling, a private practice led by qualified practitioner Alana Burton (Dip. TA Practice, MBACP).
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. Therapy will be the understanding and challenging environment to promote emotional resilience and optimal growth.
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 help you increase your understanding of yourself and your situation. I will support you to make better use of existing resources and to also develop new resources to help you change and grow.
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 my base in Washington (RH20) and 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 and psychotherapy can support us in achieving our goals.
September 2021: I continue to offer client sessions via online video calls (Zoom).
