Having worked in the field of Psychology since 2003, and more recently having qualified as an NLP master practioner and Hypnotherapist, I have worked with a vast array of different population andpatient groups including children with behavioural and physical disabilities, young carers, oncology patients, chronic illness patients, mental health patients, parents and adult carers.
Counselling and Psychotherapy aims to help people to explore and find their own ways to deal with the things in their life that make them feel distressed, dissatisfied or confused. Friends and familycan often help, but sometimes it can be easier and more effective to seek the help of a psychotherapist or counsellor. Professional help can really change the way you think and feel, helping you to cope more effectively with the stresses and strains of modern life.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
As a qualified Counselling Supervisor, I am available to work with trainee counsellors as well as more experienced therapists. I appreciate that taking the first step to seek counselling can bedaunting. Research shows that the single most significant factor in predicting the outcome of therapy is the relationship between therapist and client. To be able to trust and confide in the therapist it is vital for the client to have a sense of safety and to feel comfortable.
