HWelcome to Seabreeze Counselling Plus . . .

Seabreeze Counselling

Like the sea our lives ebb and flow.  In a similar way counselling often enables old words and thoughts to flow out and new words and thoughts to flow in, giving us a more positive outlook.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Lesley Downs I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor, registered with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I work within their strict code of ethics.

Since relocating to West Sussex in 2007 I have set up my own private practice, worked as a volunteer with a prominent local counselling agency, and as a Primary Care Counsellor within the NHS.

Plus….Seabreeze Facilitation

For business

I focus on enabling people and organisations to be more productive and therefore more profitable.  I believe that there is a ‘virtuous circle’ that links People, Productivity and Profit.
As a qualified and experienced facilitator I will work with you on an individual, group or on a whole organisation basis to achieve the outcomes and improvements that you want to make.  To do this I use innovative, but proven, high quality listening, questioning and modelling techniques to engage with you and enable you to work at your best.

For families

After working for two years as a family group conference coordinator for a leading Southampton charity, I now offer bespoke family packages to families who need a little help to re-ignite their communication channels and promote family harmony.

If you are struggling to engage with  ‘troubled teens’, a family group session is a great way to enable all members to feel listened to and truly heard.

By using high quality listening, questioning and modelling techniques I enable families to acknowledge what is working well for them, unravel what is holding them back and gain greater understanding of themselves (and others).
