Counselling and group work for depression, stress and anxiety in Sussex

Make a donation

As You Are is a community-based charitable organisation. We believe that professional therapeutic intervention should be available to everyone and is an effective way to relieve psychological distress. Being a non-specific service on the border of East and West Sussex we are able to provide a service that aims to be accessible to all.

Counsellors at As You Are have been working effectively with both adults and children on a huge range of issues. We offer a safe and professional service which allows time for the client and counsellor to develop a trusting relationship where they can work on difficult and complex issues. It costs over £1000 for each client to access the full 24 sessions and we welcome contributions towards the cost for people on restrictive incomes. Your donations can help with service provision or you could pledge something for a specific branch of our service.

For example:

  • £192 would pay for someone on restricted income to attend 24 sessions of counselling
  • £45 would pay for an adult survivor of childhood abuse or neglect to attend an initial assessment session
  • £350 would cover the cost of 10 groups for adults living with eating disorders
  • £192 would allow local men fighting depression to access the service for full 24 sessions
