Mandy Kennedy MBACP(Accred)
I am a fully qualified BACP accredited counsellor with 30 years experience in a wide range of issues including relationship and family problems, anxiety and stress, work and personal development issues, grief and loss. I have a particular specialism in young adults.
My training is Integrative, which means I use several different theories including person centred and cognitive behavioural approaches. I use the style and techniques best suited to you. I offer both time limited and long term therapy to individuals, couples, young people and organisations.
I have a background in teaching and have worked in educational settings as well as private practice. I worked in South London for many years, building up a large practice. I have recently returned to the South West and offer sessions in Tiverton.
I work within the BACP ethical framework, have regular supervision and am fully insured. I am continually working to update my skills.
Please ring me to ask any questions and see how I could help.
