Ivy Low Cost Counselling
Ivybridge, Devon, PL210SZ
Welcome, We are Diane and Yvonne of Ivy Low Cost Counselling and provide counselling at affordable and realistic prices. This service is for anyone who feels the need to talk to someone who will listen and not tell them what to do or how to do it. Where you will be offered a safe confidential space to share and explore whatever is impacting on your life and perhaps holding you back and preventing you from moving forward.
We have known each other for many years and both share similar ideals, values and belief system. We are both professional and experienced counsellors, members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, (BACP) and adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. For your safety and well being we are CRB Enhanced checked.
We acknowledge it can take a lot of courage to enter into a therapeutic counselling relationship as the first step is to pick up the telephone; we also know that counselling is not for everyone which is why we offer you a FREE 30 minute consultation. This gives you and either Diane or Yvonne an opportunity to meet, for us to tell you what we have to offer, explain a little bit about counselling, what it is and what it hopes to achieve if you no prior knowledge or understanding. This will also be your time to share as little or as much about what is bringing you into counselling. At the end of the FREE 30 minute consultation you will hopefully know whether you feel counselling is for you and Ivy Low Counselling is the place for you. It can be scary the thought of entering into a counselling relationship; it can also be challenging but more importantly it can be a posiive experience and rewarding You are important to us and we want you to feel you are in the best hands to share your feelings and what is impacting on you so following your consultation if you want to go away and think about it then that is okay.
Do you feel stuck with a problem, trapped in a cycle of destructive behaviour? Can see no way forward? Feel that you are alone with these feelings? We know it is easy for us to say, but "please don''t despair, we can assure you, you are not alone and there are many people experiencing similar feelings to yourself"

These are typical of what our clients have shared with us and worked through as they wanted to make sense of things and regain control of their lives and they did. At this moment reading this you might be thinking - it''s too good to be true or this only happens to others - We say "it can happen to you as well" So go on pick up the phone to arrange your FREE 30minute consultation.
