The As You Are Centre (AYA) has been providing counselling and other therapeutic services since 2007. We offer low cost and affordable options to people from East and West Sussex, our service is confidential, and we provide individual, relationship and family sessions, we also offer psychoeducational groups.

AYA is registered with the BACP (The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), we are proud of the reputation that AYA has gained across local communities and with the local GP surgeries and other mental health providers and most importantly, with our clients.

We achieved charitable status in January 2012, since then our Board of Trustees have played a key role in developing and improving the service and its sustainability. We are looking for new members to join the board to enable us to continue to develop and improve our service. We are looking for individuals with an interest and passion for the work we do and a willingness to share knowledge and experience with other board members, Service Manager and team members.

Our aim is to recruit Trustees who are sympathetic to the aims of our service and willing to offer this essential service guidance, support and governance. We ask our trustees to commit approximately 2 hours each month and As You Are is happy to reimburse all reasonable expenses.
