About me

Devon Counselling

Professional Counselling:

Do you need someone to talk to? Life gets on top of us all sometimes and our mental health can suffer. There are always ups and downs. It can help to talk to someone who is not directly involved in your life. I offer professional counselling in person, online or walking and talking in the beautiful Devon countryside.

Training, qualifications & experience

Having studied an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling at Iron Mill College I embarked on my counselling practice. I have experience of supporting clients through trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship problems, childhood issues and much more.

Having also supported young people for many years in a former position I am happy to support young people and adults alike. I am comfortable working online, on the telephone our in person.

I love the outdoors and have a passion for hiking, climbing, wild camping and wild swimming. Throughout the years I have healed from the effects of my life experiences using wilderness, adventure and nature. I like supporting people to access the therapeutic benefits of nature be it through metaphor or as a part of a walking and talking therapy session or as part of a wilderness experience.

I have led groups outdoors for many years. I hold a Summer Moorland Walking Leader qualification which includes being able to take groups camping. If a client feels a longer condensed session would be helpful where we can truly access the existential benefits of being in the wilderness then this is also a service I can provide.

Most of my clients benefit from combination of nature walk and talk therapy and telephone counselling.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
