Dominique Savy BAhons/ Dip Psych
07541115966 / 07541115966
My name is Dom and I offer you a warm welcome. I am a qualified, registered and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working in North Devon, and I have experience in working with Couples, Individuals and Young People. I specialise in being open to all without discrimination.
Finding the way forward when life becomes difficult can be a challenging prospect and choosing a therapist can be daunting. As your counsellor, I will offer you a confidential, non-judgemental and private space where you can begin to make sense of your situation.
I will endeavour to support you in exploring your position at your own pace and in safety, where I will also commit to helping you find a way forward in a way that feels right for you.
How counselling can help...
Sometimes we can find ourselves struggling with our lives, leaving us feeling alone and unheard, unable to make sense of things even when surrounded by others we love. Counselling offers time-out from your often busy and stressful reality, providing a safe haven where you can hear and be heard. In this way, through personal expression of difficult thoughts and feelings, I will support you in finding the starting point for gaining clarity and control over your situation, offering a valuable platform for viewing the way ahead in a clear-sighted and purposeful manner.
I have experience working with a number of issues and situations including:
- GAD (Generalised Anxiety Disorder)
- Social Anxiety
- Building Self-Esteem and Self-Worth
- OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorders)
- Patterns of behaviour
- The effects of Trauma
- Survivors of abuse – physical, emotional and psychological
- Low self esteem and self worth
- Sadness and Depression
- Anxiety and Panic
- Loss and Bereavement
The above list is provided as a guide only, as specific areas often overlap.
Why choose me?
I am integrative in my approach, which means that I am well placed to draw from a variety of approaches in a way that best works for you. I have extensive experience gained through years of intense study and practice. I have worked within the mental health sector where I have encompassing a broad spectrum of difficulties. In addition to my private practice, I work both as a senior therapist for one of the UK’s leading charities working with young people ages from 17-30 year old and also a bespoke addictions clinic. I have a particular interest and enhanced training in working with the effects of trauma and psychological, emotional and physical abuse. I have experienced personally the power of counselling and trust in the unique ability in each one of us in finding the right path through our life experiences. As my client, I hold close the belief that you are the only expert on yourself and keep that belief closest in my work with you.
