About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Sarah Lelic and I am a psychotherapist and BACP-registered humanistic psychotherapeutic counsellor. I have particular experience working with anxiety, depression, relationship issues and eating disorders. I work from modern, comfortable rooms located in Hove.
I believe counselling can be beneficial for us all. Maybe you are struggling with a particular problem such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, addictions or suicidal thoughts, or more generally you feel you have lost your way in life or your relationships. Perhaps you are stuck and cannot see a way forward, or are having difficulties deciding which path to take in order to move on with your life.
Counselling can provide time and space for you to be completely yourself and to use the time in whatever way you feel beneficial. I will not tell you what to do, but will instead provide a safe and confidential space to allow you to explore your feelings and difficulties.
The aim of humanistic counselling is to bring awareness to unhelpful thoughts or patterns of behaviour and to build tools and resilience which may help in creating a more fulfilling and authentic way of life.
I work in a holistic manner and believe it is important to understand each individual in the light of their own personal context and experiences. I avoid restrictive models that impose labels on human behaviour and instead hope to work alongside you to enable you to reflect and better understand the meaning you have made of your experiences and your relationships.
I offer a reduced rate for trainee counsellors.
Whether or not you are sure counselling is for you, do please contact me and we can arrange a reduced cost 50-minute initial consultation where we can chat about your hopes for the counselling process. There is absolutely no obligation to return, but if we feel we would like to work together, we can then make a more formal arrangement to meet on a weekly basis.
