Yolande Dewar Dip.Couns BACP Member
I provide a warm, empathic, non-judgmental space to help you explore your thoughts and feelings.
Issues I help people with include anxiety, depression, stress, childhood trauma, bereavement, suicidal thoughts, panic attacks and unwanted patterns of behaviour.
I am a professional Gestalt counsellor and CBT therapist with many years' experience working with adults and young people within schools and at my private practice in Buckfastleigh.
If you think I might be right for you, come along and have an initial consultation, after which you are under no obligation to continue. It is very important to find the right counsellor for you.
