Fleur Gates (Reg MBACP)
If you'd like to talk through what's troubling you please get in touch to arrange an initial free chat or to book a session.
Whatever you'd like to talk about, I can support you in a safe, confidential space, giving you time to understand what you're going through and helping you feel less alone with those feelings. I will help you work through your feelings and cope with the day to day, just one step at a time.
I have experience of supporting clients dealing with anxiety, depression, family issues, panic, bereavement, relationship issues, loneliness, work related stress, sadness and so on.
I can meet you face to face, either at Harbour House in Kingsbridge, or in your home (within a 5 mile radius of Kingsbridge), or by telephone or online via Skype, VSee, Facetime, email, instant chat.
I work with adults over the age of 18.

In the past I have specialised in bereavement and I understand how painful it can be when someone dies. Feelings of loss and grief may also come from losing a job, a home, a relationship, a pet, identity, fertility, your hopes and dreams and so on.
I also have experience of supporting people who have been bereaved through suicide, which can be an incredibly painful time and has been described as "grief with the volume turned up".
