Do you feel stuck, anxious or overwhelmed? Perhaps panic, worry, lack of confidence or low self esteem is having a negative effect on your life. I understand how this may cause you to feel isolated and alone, perhaps you have tried to express how you feel with loved ones, or you may feel unable to find the words. I realise how important it is for you to find a counsellor that you feel comfortable with and how this is a big first step toward's improving your situation.

Art Psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy which involves art making and conversation.
My name is Vicky and I am a highly empathic and professional psychotherapist. I am psychodynamically trained which means I can help you to explore how you have learnt to relate to the world, to others and how the world relates back to you. We often hold onto past or recent trauma and it shapes how we feel, think and behave, often resulting in unhealthy defences. I can help you to unravel this and be more at peace with the world. I have experience of helping clients living with psychosis, disordered eating, low self-esteem, bereavement, personality disorders, abusive relationships and learning difficulties to name just a few.

From talking therapies to body work, yoga/breath to creative interventions, such as using sand tray, voice dialouge or art therapies to help you find positve ways to grow.
Hello, I'm Basia Louise. I'm an experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist and a member of BACP with a private practice in Newton Abbot. I also volunteer with DCCP a not for profit counselling agency. I believe one of the most important aspect in counselling, is first, in choosing the person you'll do your best work with and then in the building of that theraputic relationship of trust. I offer an open, caring, safe and non judgemental space where I help people get to the root of what is causing their problems and support them in discovering ways to change their lives for the better.

Using creative tools, such as art and play, young people can experience comfort and arrange experiences differently.
Trying to work out the way forward in the world is hard, especially if you're young, have difficult family circumstances, have trouble with school and peers. Parents too have worries about their children and young people, they want the best but sometimes need a non judgemental, empathetic person to work through issues and challenges of modern life. Finding ways of relating to one another, gathering self-esteem and resilience are all part of the learning of the self.

Creative Therapy Counsellors
It may look like a craft class, but art therapy is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. Art therapy can be used on children and adults to treat a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse and domestic violence, and trauma and loss. Commonly found in hospitals and community centers, art therapy programs are based on the belief that the creative process is healing and life-enhancing. As they paint or draw, a skilled Barnstaple art therapist can use the client's works of art and their approach to the process as springboards to help them gain personal insight, improve their judgment, cope with stress, and work through traumatic experiences.
