Counselling and Psychotherapy in the Barnstaple, Bideford, South Molton, Ilfracombe & the North Devon area.
Hello and welcome to my website.
My name is Steve and I have 11 years of experience working as a qualified Counsellor, operating in the Barnstaple and North Devon area. I am a registered member of the BACP (the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).
Life can be difficult and your friends and family aren’t always able to help, leaving you feeling sad and alone. I want to be there with you and help you find a place where you will feel happier and better about life. I aim to bring warmth and empathy into my counselling relationships and I will treat you with care, compassion, acceptance and respect. I will work in partnership with you to support and enable you to look at your concerns in ways that suit you best. I will not judge or advise you, but I will offer you a confidential space that offers you the freedom to explore your concerns openly and honestly in your own safe space, where you can say the unsayable if you want to.
Counselling is not just appropriate in the extreme situations you might face, but can also be helpful at any time in your life, allowing you to gain more insight into who you are, your relationships and your life generally. As a member of BACP, I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice which means that I will always work safely and ethically with you putting your best interests at the heart of my work with you. I offer a Person-centred and Humanistic approach. I can offer you sessions for individuals and couples on weekdays and evenings, including weekends.
I am also a qualified Counselling Supervisor and teach the Counselling qualifications at Petroc College.

My theoretical approach is Humanistic, Person-centered but also Integrative and Pluralistic.
