Counselling for Childhood Issues in East Sussex

As children we all had to learn ways to survive in our home environment. Sometimes children are supported by their parents or carers and siblings; encouraged to grow and be confident in who they are and what they want to achieve in life.

Unfortunately, others in East Sussex may have been subjected to negative experiences that are still affecting their lives today. Amongst these may be:

Abuse – physical, sexual, neglect
Parents addicted to alcohol or drugs
Family break-ups
Adoption
Loss of a parent/grandparent
Sibling rivalry


As a result of these childhood issues we make decisions about ourselves, others and the world we live in. Although they may have been our best way of surviving as children and were useful strategies at the time these decisions may now be negatively affecting how we function in the world. What I often find is that clients with childhood issues in East Sussex have problems in the following areas:

Internal conflict – what you say to yourself internally, the internal struggles and confusion you experience External conflict – problems with your relationships Repetitive life patterns which limit or damage you

Treatment of Childhood Issues in East Sussex

Even if we had to bury a childhood hurt, such as neglect or violence, at the time, we can still find healing for it in adult life. The basic process is the same: to find a way of telling your story, to make sense of it, to be comforted, and to make new decisions about yourself and your life.

An obvious way to do this is through therapy or counselling in East Sussex. Through telling your story you can gain personal insight and a different view of yourself.
