Tony Bryant (MBACP, ACC) Psychotherapy
A warm welcome to my profile, I hope you find it informative, but should there be any queries, please feel free to contact me, I guarantee I will not be doing any hard sell, as I am here to serve. I have a passion to see people released into all they are meant to be, and offer an opportunity to explore personal issues, either as a couple or an individual, to help you make sense of things in a safe environment. I have been a qualified counsellor for over 20 years, during which time I have listened to many people, with a wide range of difficulties, both as individuals and couples. I know how difficult it can be to make that first step towards healing, so I offer an initial half hour appointment free of charge, to allow potential clients the opportunity to explore their options before making any commitment. In addition to Cullompton, I also have a room in Exeter.
I began training as a Counsellor back in 1994, eventually becoming fully qualified at Diploma level in 2002. I became Accredited in 2004. Until recently I was a qualified trainer with Barnabas Counselling Training, a national organisation which has networks all over the UK and abroad. I am a member of BACP and ACC. Since I began counselling I have completed over 3,000 hours of formal counselling, both within various agency settings, including Dagenham, Romford and Exeter, and also in my own private practice.
I have an integrated approach, as I believe that any approach is dependent on who has come for help and the nature of the difficulty, although I do have a person centred foundation. I have regular supervision and am a member of 2 professionally run national organisations and comply to their strict code of ethics, which include respecting a client's autonomy.
What is counselling?
Counselling is a one to one meeting between you and a trained counsellor in order to to give you the opportunity to talk about, and reflect upon, whatever problems or difficultes may be causing you concern, to be really listened to, in a safe environment, without the risk of being judged.
If you prefer to see a female counsellor I can recommend my colleague Tina Welch. www.tinawelch.co.uk
