Psychological therapy in Brighton and Hove and online

"What we don't need in the midst of struggle, is shame for being human" - Brene Brown.

Are you looking for a psychologist in Brighton and Hove?

 

My name is Dr Anna Chiara Sicilia and I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist practicing in Brighton and Hove and online. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). I have specialist training in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy and I adopt an integrative approach in my clinical work, drawing from a range of psychological approaches to best suit the needs of the person, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)

I currently work as a Senior Clinical Psychologist for the NHS in an adult mental health team and I offer private psychological therapy in Brighton and Hove and online. I can offer psychological therapy for a range of difficulties including:

 

  • Low mood and depression

  • Anxiety and stress

  • Anger management

  • Bereavement and grief

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Phobias

  • Life changes and transitions

  • Feeling generally "stuck"

  • Work-related stress and difficulties in the workplace

  • Relational difficulties

  • Physical, emotional and sexual abuse

  • Trauma reactions, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and complex trauma

I primarily offer psychological therapy to adults on a 1:1 basis in Brighton and Hove and if preferred, I can offer sessions in Italian. I do not currently offer couple or family sessions.
