Humanistic counselling & psychotherapy
in Brighton & Hove & Online
Hi I’m Tamsin. I have been working as a counsellor since 2010. I trained at the University of Brighton and have since gained BACP accreditation making me a fully accredited BACP member, which insures I am highly skilled and trained in the field. I have worked in various agencies and schools in the city before setting up my private practice. From 2016 - 2021 I lived and worked in New York. I’ve really enjoyed working with clients from a different cultural background and have had the opportunity to appreciate the unique issues that come with living in America.
Whilst I predominately use the person centred approach, I will draw on other techniques, such as CBT, mindfulness and focusing, if that is appropriate. I believe it is important to address all elements of ourselves, body, mind and sprit, to help address the issues and feelings that have become intrusive and unhelpful. Therapeutic change can only occur when the relationship with the client and therapist is trusting and transparent which is why it is so important for our relationship to be at the centre of the work we do.
My office is in central Hove and I often bring my little dog Hudson to work with me. I will always check in with clients to make sure they are happy to have him around and do not have allergies.
I am used to working with a broad range of people from different cultures, different backgrounds, with neurodiversity, with the LGBTQ+ community
I generally recommend a minimum of 6 weeks of counselling and regularly work with clients for months and even years. I offer a free 20/30 minute online introduction so we are able to see if we feel able to work together successfully.
I offer online video calls as well as phone counselling and face to face sessions. We can discuss which works best for you.
