Counselling and Psychodynamic therapy in Fiveways, Brighton & Hove

Welcome to my website.

Does life feel like it's getting on top of you?
Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?

  • to explore your thoughts and feelings
  • to gain insight into yourself
  • to talk through a difficult situation
  • to feel more in control of your life
  • to develop techniques to help you manage better day to day

    My name is Sophie Thorne and I have been a practising counsellor offering psychodynamic therapy in the Brighton and Hove area for the last 8 years and am currently based mainly at Fiveways. As a counsellor I have a warm, empathic approach and am committed to providing counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment.

    I work with individuals offering therapy on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. This may involve looking at ways you habitually think, feel and behave, in particular situations or relationships and why this isn't working for you. Alternatively it may be a place for you to process feelings around loss, grief or life changes, or simply to have a "thinking space" that's just for you. Counselling can be focused on just one specific issue, or be a space where you feel free to experience and explore all thoughts and feelings freely...the way you wish to use the space is up to you! For more information about psychodynamic counselling, please visit the "About counselling" page.

    I am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor, used to helping clients who have had difficulties with many issues, including :
  • Stress
  • Relationships
  • Panic Attacks
  • Anxiety
  • Transition to university and adult life
  • Low self-esteem/lack of confidence
  • Disordered eating
  • Trauma
  • Bereavement, grief and loss
  • Managing changes in your life
  • Family and parenting issues
  • Depression
  • Post Natal Depression

    Where it's beneficial to clients, I may also use a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy approach.

    My counselling practice is based in the Fiveways area of Brighton; Fiveways is an easily accessible area of Brighton and within easy reach of Hove, Worthing and Lewes. For more details visit the Contact Me page.
