Counselling Ilfracombe

My name is Amy, I am a qualified counsellor, fully insured and a registered member of the BACP - British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. My practice is located in Ilfracombe, Devon and within easy reach of Woolacombe, Combe Martin, Braunton, Barnstaple and surrounding areas. I also work online via Zoom and Skype. 

You're probably here because things aren't going well right now, they haven't in the past, or you're worried about the future, maybe all three. That's okay - everyone has problems to overcome at some point in their life. In fact, I believe that these times when we struggle are our greatest opportunities for personal growth and enrichment. It can be daunting I know, overwhelming even, but I assure you that I am here to support you, and offer you the security and space to explore your thoughts and feelings.


I'm drawn to understanding you as an individual, what you see, hear and feel, and how you relate to the world around you. Therapy is a journey and you have already made the first step. I will help you travel on, following your directions, whilst gently pointing out the surrounding countryside and alternative routes. Through a combination of curiosity and compassion, I can help you navigate your path towards a brighter future.


Through a tailored approach - different for each individual - we will work through your concerns towards your desired goals. I believe that you have within you, the tools and the knowledge to discover who and how you want to be, and above all, to find an underlying sense of happiness and resilience that will serve you throughout your life. 


Counselling can offer support through a difficult time, a deeper understanding of yourself and others, increased self-confidence, and a more positive outlook. I will keep your well-being and needs at the very forefront of the work, always aiming to empower you to find your own solutions.


If you have any questions, want to make an appointment, or would just like to ask me about what I can offer and when I am available, please send me a message. 



Online therapy

I work from home in Ilfracombe, Devon, and throughout the UK online via Zoom or Skype, which are free and easy to use apps that I can help you set up. I offer both short and longer-term therapy with sessions typically being 1 hour long at a time to suit you. For online sessions you just need a quiet place where you won't be interrupted or feel overheard, a computer or tablet and WiFi.

Statement concerning the coronavirus pandemic

I am currently seeing some clients face-to-face and taking the necessary precautions regarding COVID19. However, if further restrictions are imposed I will revert to purely online work until they are lifted.
