Leyla Swan Counselling and Therapy Services Southwater, Horsham, Billingshurst, Cowfold, Storrington, and other areas of West Sussex

I am an accredited psychotherapist based near Horsham, West Sussex and I welcome clients from other surrounding areas. I have 20 years experience and as well as working in private practice I have previously worked for 10 years within the NHS as a Psychological Therapist in primary care. I offer time limited and longer term therapy in my private practice held in relaxed surroundings in Southwater, West Sussex

I work strictly within the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), ethical framework and you will find me on the BCAP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I combine the theories from various approaches within psychotherapy which include; Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Existential theory as well as offering Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) courses. I am therefore not bound by any one particular philosophy.

As every individual and their experiences are unique, no single counselling philosophy can work for everyone. Theoretical integration enables me to apply the theories I believe may work best in meeting clients’ needs within the therapy sessions.

I will provide a safe and confidential environment for you to talk freely about the issues that brought you to counselling and I will support you in exploring and gaining a better understanding of any issues that may be preventing you from leading a satisfying and resourceful life.

Some of the areas that I have experience of working with include:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Bereavement/complicated grief
  • Low self- esteem
  • Emotional eating/weight related issues
  • Work related issues
  • Anger Management
  • Relationship and attachment issues
  • PTSD
  • Complex childhood trauma
  • Depression (single episode or recurring)
  • Boarding School survivors
  • Addictions

    Leyla Swan also works alongside an associate therapist Jackie Mardle. Jackie is an accredited Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor who offers individual counselling as well as couples counselling which is her area of expertise. She is listed on the website and should be contacted directly.
