Covering 10 miles of EX19 or via FaceTime, Messenger or WhatsApp
BA(Hons) Dip(PG) MBACP
Hi. I'm Sera Orme and I have been counselling since 2009. I am a qualified member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with a BA (Hons) Counselling and Post Graduate Diploma in counselling. I am also fully DBS cleared. As part of my ongoing personal development I have completed additional accredited courses which examine in greater depth specific areas such as bereavement, substance misuse, eating disorders, play therapy (for children) and couples.
Based in North Devon, I am happy to travel within 10 miles of EX19 or conduct sessions remotely via FaceTime, Messenger and WhatsApp. An initial consultation is free of charge and enables us to clarify what your personal goals are and how they can best be achieved.
An important point to remember is that I operate to very strict BACP confidentiality rules and you can be assured that anything said during a session stays between us (subject to a few exceptions which I'’ll explain before we start). I follow the integrative counselling model which means I combine a number of counselling techniques as appropriate to your needs. I am also fully CBT trained. This means I can help with any problem you may be experiencing including bereavement, suicidal thoughts, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, abuse (sexual, physical or psychological), relationships (family and couples), bullying, loneliness, school/academic stress, gender/sexual orientation, discrimination, substance misuse and health problems. I have done a lot of work with children and young people as I also worked as a secondary and 6th form school counsellor for many years.
Together we can reflect on how you respond to life events and explore the way you relate to yourself and others. I will not tell you what to do or give advice but will help you to make your own choices. Please take the time to have a look at the ‘Process’ and ‘Preparation’ pages (buttons above). I look forward to helping you help yourself.
