Welcome to my website. My Name is Gaye Hellyer and I am a qualified and experienced counsellor. I work in Bexhill-on- Sea, East Sussex. My therapy room is a ten-minute walk away from the coast. I am committed to offering counselling in a welcoming, confidential, safe and non-judgemental environment. My aim is to provide a safe space where you can be you and talk about what concerns you. I am empathic and people have said I am a good listener. I believe a good therapeutic relationship between you and me is essential to support the change you want to make in your life. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your needs and there will be no obligation involved at first point of contact.



I work with a range of personal concerns and I engage with people from a variety of social backgrounds and cultures. I have experience of both one to one counselling and group work. I will work contractually with you to ensure we are working together on the things that trouble you and support you in having a greater awareness of yourself. My speciality is Transactional Analysis with integration of other modalities such as Person Centred, Gestalt. I also offer the opportunity to work creatively and if this is something you would like we can discuss it when we meet.
