What we offer you

Taking that first step to getting help can be the most difficult. But once you’ve taken it, Devon Therapy Services are here to make your journey as easy and comfortable as possible.

We deliver all your sessions in confidence as one-to-one sessions, either in person or through Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, or phone calls, in your own safe space and at a time that suits you.

With experience working with both male and female adults, our counsellors have developed tools, techniques, and methods of counselling that will help you over a single session or a course of counselling or psychotherapy.

But with natural empathy and a deeply caring attitude about every client and their welfare, you’ll never feel abandoned. We care about your issues, are here for you at every step, and want to make a real difference in your life.

Client feedback

colettecolette ★★★★★ Absolutely would recommend James! I came to him about a year ago feeling quite lost, shut off from my feelings with barely any confidence in myself. I had tried various things but never really felt I was getting anywhere. During my sessions James has helped me to communicate better, speak up when I need to, understand my feelings and achieve my goals. I really am feeling so much more confident and that I am making progress in life. James is supportive in giving you the tools you need to live the life you want, he explains things so well and has a great sense of humour! Thanks so much 🙂Response from the ownerHi Colette Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a nice review.
