Welcome to Southdowns Psychotherapy and Counselling, a private practice led by qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor 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 really leading an enjoyable and fulfilling life. If so, therapy can give you the emotional resilience and empathic support to help you 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, to understand what it is like to be you and to help you make sense of that.
We will work together to explore what is going on for you as an individual person with a unique history and experience. We will create a coherent narrative to help you understand what is going on and figure out how to move forward. You won’t need to do this alone.
Working from locations in Washington and at Bluecoat Sports in Horsham (Christ’s Hospital), I work with anyone looking to improve the quality of their life and relationships. No matter your reasons for wanting to have therapy at a particular time in your life, in my experience we are all seeking to be more emotionally fulfilled and counselling can support us in achieving our goals.
