My name is Clive Rossington, and I am a Gestalt therapist specialising in grief and loss in Brighton and online.
I provide you with a safe, non-judgemental, confidential space to explore complex emotions and be listened to by a compassionate professional. Along with helping people move past feelings of grief and loss, I am also a specialist in working with individuals who are struggling with gender, sexuality, and identity. We will work collaboratively in a way that suits your personal preferences, developing new, healthier perspectives over your experiences and empowering you to move from a state of coping and surviving to a place of compassion, confidence, and deeper understanding.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and offer sessions over Zoom, at my private practice in Brighton, or during a walk in a mutually agreeable outdoor setting.
If you are experiencing grief and loss, issues with gender, sexuality or identity, relationship troubles, depression, fear and anxiety, get in touch with me to arrange your first session.
As a Gestalt therapist specialising in grief and loss in Brighton and online, my goal is to facilitate increased awareness of the self in all situations. We will explore your immediate thoughts, feelings, behaviours and reactions to external events, with a view towards fostering greater understanding and acceptance of yourself. Instead of focusing on the past, my role as an online grief counsellor is to examine how you behave and think in the present moment, allowing you to understand negative patterns and make practical changes that enable you to feel happier and more confident.
Take a look at my About Counselling for more information on how I employ the Gestalt therapy approach to help people facing a variety of different challenges.
Bereavement, Grief and Loss
We experience loss and grief in many areas of life, such as losing a friendship, ending a relationship, being let go from a job, losing your own health and mobility, or a loss of change and identity. My life experiences and background as an online grief counsellor specialising in Gestalt therapy allows me to help you move past these challenging feelings and begin the healing process in a healthy, practical way.
Gender, Sexuality and Identity
I have specialist experience in working with those who are struggling with complex emotions surrounding gender or sexuality or whose identity doesn’t align with the expectations of society in some way. My counselling provides a safe, confidential, supportive space for those who may identify as gay, transgender, non-binary, gender expansive, genderqueer, gender fluid, agender, or those who don’t use labels or are actively questioning their gender identity.
Along with working as a Gestalt therapist specialising in grief and loss and LGBTQIA issues in Brighton or online, I provide counselling that focuses on empowering people to view themselves in a more positive, confident light. We will work together to identify the ways you unconsciously undermine yourself and reinforce negative patterns of thinking, enabling you develop a healthier perspective of yourself and, in turn, feel more confident as you go forward in life.
Other areas I help with include:
- Fear and Anxiety
- Emotional and Domestic Abuse
- Couples Counselling
- Relationships and Separation
- Self Confidence
- Low Self-Esteem
- Eating Disorders
- Work Stress
- Living with Cancer
- Klinefelter's Syndrome
