Coastal Wellbeing

In June 2020, ESRA renewed its partnership with Coastal Wellbeing to deliver WRAP training to ESRA staff volunteers and clients. WRAP stands for Wellness in Recovery Action Planning, and it teaches personal responsibility for wellbeing in recovery. This has already been shown to improve resilience among the recovery community .

What does Coastal Wellbeing offer?


Lucy and Molly are both qualified person-centred counsellors and members of the BACP. We offer private practices in Denton, Newhaven and Lewes.

We offer counselling for anyone seeking support, short or long term. We also offer one-to-one WRAP.  There is more information about us and how we work on our counselling page.
