Mental health and wellbeing are essential to everyone and all of us deserve to live a life unhindered by emotional stresses.
Counselling and therapy are proven methods for improving mental health and wellbeing, interrupting negative cycles of behaviour, improving self-esteem and resilience. This in turn facilitates independence, employability and the capacity to relate positively to others within our communities.
At The Bower Tree we believe that access to counselling and therapy should not be limited by age, financial situation, ethnicity or social background and our mission is to address this by offering low cost (or in some cases free) counselling, therapy and wellbeing sessions to individuals, groups and families in East Sussex.
Need for the services offered by The Bower Tree may include, but not be limited to: family breakdown, separation, divorce, financial difficulties, bereavement, loss, long term illness, stress, abuse, trauma, shock, having specific or additional needs, or a family member with a disability or illness.
Referrals for therapy may come from a GP, or another charitable organisation, or you may choose to self-refer.
