CREAN counselling
Lucy Crean Counselling Hove


I am a fully qualified counsellor, very experienced in helping people overcome a range of personal issues. Some of the areas I can help you work through include:

  • anxiety
  • low self esteem
  • eating disorders
  • postnatal depression
  • stress
  • depression
  • bereavement and loss
  • childhood sexual abuse
  • anger management
  • relationship/family issues
  • divorce/separation
  • self harm

However, whatever your personal and unique struggle, I am ready to listen and talk about it with you. Feel free to contact me and we can chat about creating a plan that’s right for you.

I have lots of experience in helping mothers who have recently had children and are struggling with the challenges of parenthood – whether that’s anxiety, the ‘baby blues’ or postnatal depression.

As well as offering private sessions, I also practise at a community-based organisation, which offers affordable counselling covering areas like including anxiety, depression and stress.

What are my qualifications?

I am a fully qualified counsellor, holding a Postgraduate Diploma in Humanistic Therapeutic Counselling from Brighton University.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I adhere to its Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I am committed to the profession and regularly attend continued professional development courses (CPD) to enhance my initial qualifications.

Why did I become a counsellor?

My own life-changing experience of counselling inspired me to retrain in the profession. Because of my own journey, I believe passionately that counselling can empower people to make positive changes to their lives.

Am I the right counsellor for you?

We all have the capacity for growth, healing and change, so my aim will be to help you find your own path. We will make sense of your experiences, thoughts and emotions and gently explore different perspectives and possibilities. We’ll work together to help you move your life in a direction that is right for you.

Where do I work?

I see clients for counselling in Hove at The Wilbury Clinic, 64 Wilbury Road, Hove BN3 3PY.

I also have some availability in Southwick – please just ask if this location suits you better.
