Peter Hutt Counselling Brighton & Hove Helping you make your life better

Counselling Brighton and Hove - About Me. counsellor

Person Centred Counsellor. Counselling in Hove and Brighton. Weekday, Evening and Weekend Counselling.

I will answer all enquiries promptly throughout the seasonal break (from Dec 25th) and will be available for counselling sessions on December 27th and 28th. I will resume my normal counselling hours from Saturday January 5th 2019.

Whatever it is that you’re finding difficult to deal with in your life, I will help you to explore it with warmth and understanding in a confidential, non-judgemental space. I work with individuals in quiet comfortable surroundings in either Central Brighton or in Hove. Why not get in touch now for a low cost initial counselling session?

I am a Person Centred Counsellor, so our counselling sessions will not be about me or my opinions, they will be about you and whatever issues you want to talk about. My aim is for you to feel free to speak about anything at all. Whatever you want to explore, I will listen to you with empathy and without judgement.

You could be considering having counselling for a variety of reasons. It may be for a specific issue such as a bereavement, anxiety, depression, work related stress, drink or drug abuse, relationship problems, obsessive behaviour or addictions. Perhaps you are experiencing general feelings of worthlessness or low self-esteem. You might even have an underlying sense of ‘impending doom' that never seems to go away. Whatever it is that is troubling you I can help.

It’s a big step asking for help, so I will not keep you waiting. When you contact me, I will reply to your enquiry promptly - normally within an hour or so during waking hours.

Our counselling sessions will help you to understand yourself better and we can do that in various ways. For example, we might try to identify any negative or destructive cycles in your life. We would try to find out the reasons behind them and look for ways to prevent them from happening over and again. At the same time we could try to identify more positive cycles which are beneficial to your well-being. Counselling is a unique opportunity for you to discover more about yourself and what triggers the feelings or emotions that you struggle with or find difficult to understand. As your counsellor I will give you the space to talk about anything you want.

As a Person Centred Counsellor, I will be genuine and authentic in our counselling relationship. I do not wear a 'counsellor hat'. So I will help you find solutions to your problems with honesty and integrity. My own experiences during more turbulent and difficult times in my life, along with a wide range of work and training help me to relate to you and your struggles. My role as a counsellor is to see things from your perspective, in order to best understand your thoughts and feelings. Together, we can then try to see the best way forward in order to work towards finding a solution.

If you are struggling with alcohol problems, prescription or illicit drug abuse, problem gambling, gaming, internet or other obsessive behaviour, then I can draw on my deep understanding of addiction and all the associated issues.

I have my own personal experience of addiction, alcoholism and recovery and am a trained alcohol and addiction counsellor. This has given me an extensive working knowledge of recovery including the 12 step program. This has been enhanced by my time spent counselling and key-working in a well regarded Brighton and Hove residential rehab.

My unique combination of work as a counsellor and my life experience helps me to understand your difficulties and enables me to help you explore personal issues and obstacles, whether they are current problems or experiences from your past that are still affecting the way you feel in your day to day life. Together, we can work towards strengthening your inner resources in order to build your confidence and help you to feel more optimistic about your future.

You might be seeking counselling because you suffered childhood abuse, trauma or abandonment. You may be struggling with generalised anxiety disorder, a personal loss or a bereavement. Perhaps you feel generally troubled, but can't quite work out why or are living with a constant sense of unease which you can't seem to shake off.

"Don't worry about what's ahead. Just go as far as you can go - from
there you can see further"


Our sessions can help you to understand some of the reasons behind any emotions or behaviours that are bothering you. I will help you to explore anything that is affecting you, in a genuine and compassionate way. Together we will work towards finding a solution. Whatever issues you are finding difficult to deal with, as your counsellor I can help.

Why not take the first step and contact me now. Text, phone or e-mail - whichever suits you. I offer a low cost first meeting with no obligation, so that you can find out if you’re comfortable talking with me. If you feel up to it, then why not call me for an informal chat.

I am registered counsellor with The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy as a qualified professional counsellor in Brighton and Hove and practice counselling within their Ethical Framework.

I work as a counsellor/therapist on either an open-ended basis or for an agreed number of sessions.

The purpose of counselling is to help you to improve your life. As a professional counsellor I want to help you achieve this.
