If you are looking for a therapist you have taken a courageous first step. Life can be hard for us all at times. I love the work I do; helping people to explore what's troubling them in order to livemore fulfilling lives. I work privately from premises close to the Hight St, on Southernhay Exeter, Devon, with a wide spectrum of people with many differing presenting issues.
I started working as a counsellor over 20 years ago. I had been teaching stress management, yoga and meditation, and often found that people needed to talk with me about various difficulties andcomplications in their lives. It was a natural step to move into Counselling and Psychotherapy, as it meant that I was in a position to offer support to others, and it was also important in my own personal development.
I aim to facilitate constructive communication to enable both resolution of a current crisis and exploration of any long-term issue that you bring for attention. Impartial and non-judgemental, Isupport both parties in realising how different parts of themselves operate in the relationship to get needs met.
My name is Guy Millon and I am a counselling psychologist in training, offering counselling and psychotherapy in central Exeter. I also facilitate mindfulness groups. Whatever may have brought youhere - curiosity, distress, hope, desperation - welcome. I have five years of experience of practicing counselling and psychotherapy in a variety of different settings. In my ongoing work within an NHS secondary care psychology service I see people individually for medium to long-term psychotherapy.
Welcome to my website, I am a BACP Counsellor and I work with adults of all ages and backgrounds providing short and long term counselling in Exeter. I guess most people would have the expectationthat counselling provides us with a safe and strictly confidential space where we will be listened to without judgement and where we can discuss aspects of lives that are troublesome.
Originally from South London I spent 15 years working in retail management before moving to Devon in 2001. Since then I have combined being a carer to a family member for over 10 years with becoming aprofessional counsellor and developing my counselling practice in Exeter. Whilst in training I also worked as a support worker helping people in Exeter with various disabilities - including dementia, cerebral palsy and autism to live independently in their own homes.
It can be a daunting prospect to share personal thoughts and feelings with someone you know little about. On this page I hope to give you an idea of who I am and what I bring to the role of therapist.For over 10 years I successfully ran my own company in Torbay, Devon. Then due to the stresses of running the company I had to close it down. I went to counselling at this point for the first time in my life as it was not something I was ever drawn to.
