I am Mark Weston. I am a qualified person-centred counsellor (FdSc from the University of Brighton) and qualified supervisor (Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling Supervision from Sussex Psychotherapy and Counselling). I have a great deal of experience of both one to one counselling and group work and I work largely in a person-centred way although I will call on other counselling disciplines where I feel that it is appropriate for the client. I have specific experience in working with addictions both at Addaction and Action for Change and also specific work in bereavement gained at St Peter and St James Hospice (Chailey) and St Michael's Hospice (St Leonards on Sea). I am a member of the BACP and my work is grounded in the BACP ethical framework. I receive supervision under the guidelines outlined by the BACP, this ensures that I am constantly reviewing my practice.
I am a qualified supervisor and offer one to one supervision including reduced rate supervision for students on a recognised training course.
Confidentiality; the sessions that you have with either Sharon or Mark will be confidential. There are certain situations where this confidentiality may have to be broken and these will be explained to you during your introductory sessions. Any breach in confidentiality is unusual and in most cases would be discussed with you first.
