Dr. Ruth Kidson - Counselling Near Brighton

Hello . . . and welcome

My name is Ruth Kidson and I am a qualified counsellor, doctor and medical hypnotherapist.  I offer face to face counselling in comfortable surroundings in Saltdean, East Sussex.

Counselling offers the opportunity for you to talk about and explore any issues or problems you may be experiencing, in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment.

Counselling also helps to relieve the sense of loneliness that you may feel if you’re dealing with problems that no one else seems to understand.

I work in a humanistic way, using a person-centred approach with elements of Gestalt, TA and art therapy.  I will not give you advice or try to influence your decisions but will support you through your journey of self-discovery so that you can find your own answers and your own strength.

I work with individual clients on a short- or long-term basis and have experience of working on a wide range of issues including:

  • abuse and trauma
  • anxiety
  • bereavement and loss
  • depression
  • disability and medical-related issues
  • low self confidence
  • low self esteem
  • major life changes
  • sexuality problems
  • stress and work issues

I have experience of working with all age groups from students to the elderly and with people of different ethnicities and sexual orientation.
