Hello and welcome

My name is Ray Bruce and I'm a registered member of the BACP with 10 years experience of working professionally as a Psychotherapist. I provide a professional and confidential psychotherapy and counselling service near Barnstaple, North Devon

What is Counselling?

Counselling provides a safe, non judgemental environment for you to talk about your concerns. The counselling process is to act as a container, where you can feel 'held', heard and understood enabling you to express your feelings and difficulties.
As a counsellor my role is to facilitate a space for you to begin to make sense of the world and in doing so to help you to understand what's going on and therefore be more available to making positive changes. Regular sessions can give you the opportunity ( maybe for the first time) to explore your history at a pace that feels right. This aspect of the counselling process helps you to see and understand how patterns and behaviours are (being) repeated outside of your conscious awareness and therefore building a wider knowledge of yourself and those around you.

So how can one to one counselling near Barnstaple help you?

There are many reasons why people need to speak to a counsellor. These are just a few examples of the issues that I have helped clients deal with.

  • Couples Therapy
  • Men's Counselling
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Bereavement and Loss
  • Sexuality and Identity issues
  • HIV and AIDS related issues
  • Family issues
  • Early Childhood and Past Experiences

    One to One Counselling

    The way I'll work with you is informed by an Integrative Perspective.
    This means I use a variety of different theories, philosophies and techniques. This can help to broaden the way that we work together, enhancing my ability to adapt to your ever changing developmental needs.

    Integrative Therapy draws on mainstream theoretical perspectives, utilising knowledge and skills from different therapies. As Individuals we think, feel and react in different ways. As an integrative counsellor I will work with you to produce a unique therapy, adapted to suit you and your needs whether it be Relationship Issues,Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Bereavement and Loss.

    The exact nature of the work we do will depend on what suits you best.

    As my client you are an individual and the concerns and issues that you bring are unique to you. You may wish to talk about your current situation, for example if you are experiencing stress at work or in your relationship. There may be something in your past that you which to address, for example if you've ever felt depressed.
    There is no set pace at which we work. However, if you feel you need to set goals with a certain life situation that is fine too.

    Men's Counselling

    Confidential Counselling in Barnstaple for Men

    Why Men's Counselling and how can it help?

    Well, the good news is that more and more men are seeking counselling and psychotherapy than ever before.

    For some men, therapy provides their first experience of talking openly and honestly about themselves and about how they are feeling.
    For many men, counselling can help by examining the emotional and psychological blocks that prevent clear communication of feelings and needs. Men's Counselling can improve your quality of life, promote self awareness and boost your self confidence.

    Men's Counselling can help with issues like:

  • Substance and Alcohol Abuse.
  • Relationship Issues.
  • Infidelity.
  • Anger Issues.
  • Stress.
  • Difficulties feeling and Sustaining Intimacy.
  • Porn Addiction.
  • Gambling.
  • Mid-Life Crisis.
  • Bereavement/Loss.
  • Depression and Low Self-Esteem.

    It can often seem that society 'conditions' men in believing that to express emotions or feelings is a sign of weakness. This 'conditioning' can make it even harder for men to seek help. However, to admit that you have a problem and seek support is often one of the most difficult and bravest things a man can do.
