My name is Beccy Turner and I'm a qualified counsellor based in Brixham, Devon. I appreciate that for most people the idea of starting counselling and finding the right person can feel very daunting and sometimes intimidating. There is an awful lot of information “out there” and often it can feel a bit “technical” and off-putting. So I will try to keep things simple, informative and as jargon-free as possible.
If you're searching for a counsellor then it's likely you are experiencing some kind of distress, discomfort or dissatisfaction. This could be for many different reasons, ie bereavement, loss, ill health, relationship worries. Equally, you may have no idea of a cause but just a sense that life is not what it could be. Counselling is not only helpful for big traumatic life events. It can also help for times when you are at a crossroads or are feeling “stuck”.
Please feel free to contact me and we can have an initial conversation about whether counselling may be appropriate for you. This initial conversation can be face to face or via email or telephone. Whatever makes you feel most comfortable and makes that initial step feel less daunting. I really 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.
