I am a qualified integrative counsellor working in Plymouth, Devon. That means I use a few different counselling approaches and will flex and bend how I work depending on what you bring into our sessions. We will explore whatever you choose to share and, together, gain some insight and clarity. I offer a safe, calm, open and compassionate space with no judgment about what we discuss.
I have been practising as a counsellor for several years and have a background in supporting people with "everyday" problems as well as those living with enduring mental health difficulties.
Here's a testimonial from a client:
"Antonia made me feel at ease as soon as I met her. She has helped me deal with some very difficult issues & I will remember her for the rest of my life for her amazing work.
Antonia made me feel very much like it was 'our' journey, not just mine alone & always put things into perspective for me.
I would recommend Antonia without a doubt as she has literally changed my life".
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked with clients experiencing a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, loss, self-harm, trauma, abuse, financial difficulties, relationship problems, divorce, struggling while caring for loved ones and work/employment problems.
I use an integrative counselling approach where I work with a variety of counselling techniques and styles but mainly lean towards the fundamental aspects of Person-Centred Counselling, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy.
