Counselling for anxiety in Hove

join a counselling practice


We welcome qualified therapists from all modalities to come and join us to become a part of a therapeutic collaboration. We function as a partnership of individual professionals, all recognised as unique and equal members of the collective.


The working collective aims to reduce costs to our clients whilst maintaining healthy rewards for our participating associate therapists. We expect our therapists to be active participants in their efforts to expand the network which in turn will result in building a robust, diverse and extensive client referral service. 


Working collaboratively is a way to maximise individual resources in terms of advertising, branding, social media, networking as well as sharing knowledge, insight and good practice. It is easy to feel overwhelmed as you try to navigate all of these individual factors alone and so joining a network of like-minded individuals can only enhance your practice.


Our aim is to break down the feelings of isolation and create a platform where you can learn alongside other practitioners as your practice grows.
