Counselling and Psychotherapy in Sussex

My name is Jon Henderson and I am a professional therapist and experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor in West Sussex, covering the geographical area between Brighton & Hove, Horsham, Crawley, Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill. I also offer East Sussex counselling.

Whatever your reasons for considering therapy, I offer a supportive and confidential space for you to explore what you think and how you feel, without fear of judgement. We can agree to work on a short-term or longer-term basis, as necessary.

Counselling and therapy services

Every day, millions of people are met with challenges that they silently struggle with or fail to resolve on their own. I routinely work with adult clients who come to me with a wide range of mental ill-health issues that I am highly qualified and trained to help with. These include

Whether you feel challenged in your marriage or partnership, are suffering from anxiety or stress, have experienced a life change or bereavement, or are struggling with substance abuse, the way you handle things is vital to safeguard your mental wellbeing, physical health, your relationships and sense of fulfilment in life.

Using two approaches in my counselling and Sussex psychotherapy practice – Person Centred Therapy and Transactional Analysis (TA) – I can help you work through your thoughts and feelings, establishing what changes you want to make to your life, and move towards your stated goals.

  • Person Centred Therapy is a humanistic approach that considers everyone as having an innate tendency to develop towards their full potential, which may become blocked or distorted at certain times. We will work together to improve your understanding of your own feelings so that you can reconnect with your inner values and sense of self-worth.
  • Transactional Analysis (TA) is one of the most accessible forms of modern psychology, designed to encourage personal growth and change. As a fundamental therapy for achieving happiness and reaching your full potential, we will work together on problem solving behaviours, finding day-to-day tools to provide constructive, creative solutions.

Through our sessions together, we can investigate and attend to the specific issues impacting on your emotional health and wellbeing, helping you to make positive changes in your life.
