Dave Davies Dip.Therapeutic Counselling, Registered MBACP
Hello, welcome and thank you for viewing my counselling profile.
I am a qualified, experienced counsellor in private practice, offering integrative counselling to adults in Kingsbridge and Totnes. My integrative training means that I draw on different approaches to gently support you in understanding your situation and to assist you in meeting the challenges that life can present.
I am a warm and down to earth person and offer a solid, professional and trusting relationship as the corner stone of my counselling work. You can see further information about how I work on my website:
How I work and what to expect
Counselling offers the chance to step back from what can seem overwhelming, stressful or confusing and gives the time and space to reflect and make sense of things. I can support you in safely exploring whatever challenges you are facing in a calm and confidential environment.
During the counselling process we can build insight and awareness of how you respond and adapt to life and we can consider ways to develop fresh approaches and solutions. Alongside this we can also work on building strategies for coping, resilience, self care and well being that are right for you.
An introductory session gives us the opportunity to see how we could work together. We can begin to look at your situation and think about what you would like to achieve from the counselling. Once we are clear about what we are working towards, we can look at how many sessions this may take and discuss how we could approach that. I build in regular reviews along the way to ensure that we are keeping on track and that the counselling is meeting your needs.
My approach offers different ways of working to suit individual needs. It is ultimately what is right for you and what you feel comfortable working with.
If you feel that you might like to arrange a no obligation introductory session or to see how I may help, please call, text or email and we can take it from there. I look forward to hearing from you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
