Sometimes we need some space and time for ourselves. To be able to take stock, discover, understand and heal. By exploring this site you are taking the first step towards understanding more about yourself and feeling better.
What can I offer you?
A safe space to talk and examine problems that are causing you distress or unease. I work from a GP surgery in Fremington, a private house and counselling rooms in Bideford.
I will listen without judgment or criticism and offer support and help.
We all have problems in life and sometimes we need help. It's good to talk and most importantly I offer space for you to do that.
Together we can investigate and understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be causing you distress or dis-ease. The aim of counselling is to help you to accept, resolve and move on and to become aware of things that are stopping you from doing this. I will support you while you find the answers you need. I am a registered member of the BACP www.bacp.co.uk which provides Ethical guidelines for responsible counselling.
What is counselling?
Counselling is a talking therapy that offers support for distress, life changes and mental health problems. Psychotherapy works at a deeper and more complex level.
I will help to discover what is right for you and aid you in that path. Counselling does not tell you what to do but supports and guides you to work out the right pathway for you.
