Hi my name is Mandy Colwill and I am an accredited member of BACP and have been a qualified, practising counsellor for over 10 years. I have been working within the NHS for many years providing counselling to GP surgeries which has given me a wide range of experience. I provide counselling and supervision services within the Newton Abbot area in Devon.
I seek to provide a place for you to explore the difficulties that you may be experiencing in your life, past or present. Working in an integrative way, I do not believe that "one size fits all". I have trained in a variety of approaches in order to best fit the therapy to the client.
I pride myself most on making a connection with a client and being able to provide a supportive space where people feel safe, understood and accepted. I am trained in TA, Gestalt, CBT, NLP and Person Centred therapy and enjoy working creatively when appropriate but I see the relationship as the key foundation to good, therapeutic work.
I can work both long-term and time-limited with a range of issues and client need. Please see my website www.mandycolwillcounselling.co.uk for more information about counselling and the areas that I cover.
