My name is Belinda, I live and practice in North Devon. I have had the pleasure of working with clients presenting a variety of issues. I have been working with clients for over three years now. I am a wife and mother, counsellor and previously a client. I do understand that just daily life struggles can weigh us down.
I have worked with the smaller issues and the bigger ones. I understand the huge importance of the client and therapist relationship. I always work hard, in finding ways in which I can be the best counsellor I can be, for any client I work with. I am committed to the work, and working on myself through continued personal development. I work within a strict ethical framework, where the client is at the heart.
