Psychotherapy and Counselling in Eastbourne and Surrounding Areas

What is therapy and how can it help me?

Psychotherapy and Counselling is a process that can help all individuals through troubling and turbulent times of their lives, and also help to better understand themselves, their behaviours and reactions better.

At the core psychotherapy, is to help you gain a better understanding of the issues that are troubling. The therapist and you can work towards new ways of approaching situations that you find challenging, as well as developing new ways to help you cope. At Calm Journey, the trust you develop with your therapist is very important, and as therapy continues, you will soon realise that there aren’t many relationships that holds you in a completely non judgemental, supportive and positive way.

Therapy does not ‘just’ involve talking about your areas of concern, but helps you work towards solutions. Depending on your concern, your therapy may involve homework such as: tracking your moods, writing about your thoughts or taking part in activities that have caused or are causing you anxiety.

Today, in general, the terms Psychotherapy and Counselling can be used interchangeably. However, Counselling is known as a process to help people through issues they consider to be less urgent or complex and can range from 8 to 20 sessions.Psychotherapy, on the other hand, can help people through more complex and perhaps more urgent or deeper issues and can range from 16 sessions plus.

All Calm Journey Therapists offer a free 15 minute phone consultation.Psychotherapy and Counselling sessions  range from £40 – £45 per session, depending on the therapist you choose.  Calm Journey can reduce its session costs where appropriate, but terms and conditions do apply.(Please discuss this with your chosen therapist)*

*Peer Support Mentoring will need to be discussed and will depend upon whether sessions are combined with Psychotherapy sessions or taken individually.

All therapists at Calm Journey are Integrated Psychotherapists. What is an Integrated Psychotherapist?

An Integrated Psychotherapist is a therapist that has experience and knowledge in a number of different approaches and methodologies 

including for example:

How do I get started?

Make a list of the things that are bothering you and the issues you would like help with. Bring it with you to your first appointment. You might include:

  • Issues in your family or other relationships
  • Symptoms like changes in eating or sleeping habits
  • Anger, anxiety, irritability or troubling feelings
  • Thoughts of hurting yourself

In your first few sessions, you will probably do most of the talking. You should tell the therapist why you are there and what you would like to get from therapy. Make a list of short- and long-term goals with your therapist at the beginning of treatment. After a few sessions, your therapist may be able to give you an idea of how long therapy will take and when you can expect to see changes in yourself.
