Tim Pike Counselling in Brighton

Counselling in Brighton

My name is Tim Pike. I am a BACP senior accredited counsellor. I qualified in 2008. I have worked in my current private practice in Brighton since 2011.

I provide counselling in Brighton to adults on a one-to-one basis. I offer sessions for £85 both in person and remotely by video.

Professional Counsellor in Brighton

I am a fully qualified counsellor since 2008, highly experienced and a registered, senior accredited member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP Snr Accred). I have BUPA recognition and a link to BUPA can be found towards the bottom of this page.

My approach to counselling

The process is very straightforward. Come and speak about whatever is on your mind. Seemingly irrelevant discussions can often turn out to be essential aspects of the therapy. It works with having a weekly momentum where, unknowingly, progress will be happening between sessions too.

The first session gives the chance to experience therapy together and see how effective it is and whether we are best placed to work effectively. The session is a discussion of 50 minutes talking about whatever you wish to discuss.

We will work together each week until you find the best point to leave. This may be after a few sessions or you may find you benefit from longer term work. You will feel when it is the right time to stop and, if necessary, I can support you to make the best decision for you.

How Counselling works

How Counselling works

Counselling offers the opportunity to sound off and off-load without judgement and to live a lighter day to day life. It also offers the rare chance to hear some possible life changing truths, and reflect back on things which others have not seen or were not heard. It also, and most importantly, offers the chance to experience a secure trusted healthy attachment to a kind and boundaried person who is constant, reliable and consistent.

I believe everyone would benefit from counselling. Most of us can bumble along. But why bother when there is the opportunity to live life fuller and lighter. It offers the chance to explore sensitive awkward painful feelings, memories and experiences in a safe trusted way.

Some want to know what type of counselling I use. I work with an integrated style that is psychodynamically based and tailored for each client’s needs. Other methods I incorporate include: a person centred approach, cognitive behavioural therapy, and solution focused therapy . I choose to have regular further training as part of continually developing and strengthening my practice.

Counselling or Psychotherapy?

There is no agreed distinction between counselling and psychotherapy. I use them interchangeably. Some think of counselling as weekly and psychotherapy as twice or more per week. Some think of short term work as counselling and long-term work as psychotherapy. The same processes apply, although there are different intensities and endurance.

Counselling and psychotherapy enables aspects that have been previously denied to move on to find full expression. This means our relationships with ourselves and others become richer and more authentic. This leads to it being much easier and more enjoyable to live with ourselves and others. Intimacy increases.

I see clients weekly, at the same time and day each week, but this can be flexible for example for those working irregular hours.
