Hi and welcome to my website. 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 this site 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.
