Adam Goward: Dip. Couns. MBACP Counsellor near Uckfield
Hello, my name is Adam Goward, and I am passionate about counselling and the benefits of therapy, I'm guessing that you're looking at this website because you're looking for a counsellor/therapist, I hope I can help you.
As a counsellor some of the issues I regularly work with are: Anxiety, depression, bereavement and loss, relationships, addiction, trauma and anger. I work towards creating and enhancing a therapeutic relationship, this will enable you to explore your thoughts and feelings in more depth, and at your pace. To be heard and feel understood, to unpack thoughts and feelings can be so enlightening and liberating.
I am based at Buxted, East Sussex, which is close to Uckfield, Crowborough and Heathfield, I offer a free 1st assessment session where you can ask any questions that you may have, with absolutely no obligation to continue further, you may feel I am not the right counsellor or therapist for you, likewise I may feel I am not the right counsellor or therapist for you, whereby I would hope to signpost other alternatives for you to consider.
For me counselling is giving yourself the time and space to explore your issues, to gain insight with the help of a caring professional who is able to facilitate you through the often challenging and difficult experience of personal therapy. I work in private practice on either a long or short term basis, I charge £40 for individuals, £60 for couples per 1 hour session; I offer a 50% reduced rate for those on a low income, depending on space and availability, please ask.
Number of sessions?
This will often vary as each client and their issues are unique. I will offer you a regular weekly time slot; continuity is preferable as a ‘dipping in and out’ approach can be counter- productive. I have had many satisfied clients after just a handful of sessions, likewise others choose to work long term, so I guess the short answer to ‘how many sessions will I need?’ is: You will know!
Buxted is one stop from both Uckfield and Crowborough train stations, and I am just a two minute walk from Buxted station.
I offer telephone counselling and Skype counselling sessions as well as face to face.
I am also part of Resilience, which is a health and well-being resource group in Uckfield, where I facilitate a men's group, see my "men's group" page.
I qualified as a humanistic integrative counsellor at The Wealden Institute, Crowborough, which is a BACP accredited college.
