Craig Billington Therapeutic Counsellor BA (Hons) MBACP
Welcome to my profile, please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
A little about me and how I work.
I am a fully qualified counsellor registered with the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) based in Axminster, East Devon. Along side my private practice I am a member of the clinical team at Arc in Axminster, work within the NHS and I have also worked for South Western Ambulance Service NHS trust.
I am an warm and approachable counsellor and I will take you and your problems very seriously. I believe that counselling is a partnership of personal discovery on a foundation of warmth, compassion and respect. I will support you by providing a safe space where you will feel listened to and understood, from this foundation we can work on understanding your experiences to help facilitate change.
If you feel I can be of help please give me a ring (or leave a message if I am unavailable) or send me a message through this website and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
