About me

I’m Daniel Cresswell, a counsellor based in Torbay, Devon. I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) and I have a diploma in counselling which I achieved through studying at Devon Counselling College.

I am a family man, aware of how great it can be to be a father. I am also aware of how stressful it can be and how the arrival of a new person can bring a lot of confusing feelings along with them. Postnatal depression isn’t restricted to only women, it has been proven that men are also susepatable. Counselling is ideal for anyone in this position, imagine if you aren’t feeling the warm feelings that everyone expects you to feel towards the new arrival, it would be difficult to talk to your partner or another family member or friend as they may expect you to feel only positive feelings. I offer Person Centred Therapy as one of my ways of working; the core conditions are Empathy, Congruence and Unconditional Positive Regard which serve as the basic ingredients for a counselling relationship where any feelings can be explored in a safe, comfortable way.

Whether you are feeling sad or have generalised anxiety disorder, I will be hear to listen to you. No one problem is the same, you are an individual and your experience of how you feel is unique to you and I want to to ensure you feel comfortable during our time together so you are able to explore whatever may be troubling you, reassured that everything you say will be kept in confidence in the non-judgemental counselling space.

Many years ago when I first started seeing a counsellor, I found the first steps quite nerve wracking. I had no idea what to expect. However the calming, safe environment that I was presented with gave me the confidence to feel at ease and the counsellor made it known that nothing that I said would be judged. This was the fertile ground I needed to grow in my own self awareness and this is the same environment I provide for any person who wishes to see me.

My specialist areas of work include, but are not limited to, working with people who have self esteem issues, depression, anxiety, career difficulties, relationships, loss and anger.
