Counselling in South Devon  with Rosemary Kirby

Adv. Dip. Counselling M.B.A.C.P. Registered Cert. Supervision Dip. Sand Play Therapy



I was a music teacher for 20 years, and have a grown up family. I retrained as a counsellor from 1999 to 2001 and now offer a confidential and integrative service, using a variety of approaches including Gestalt Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Transpersonal Psychology, Sand Play Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Family/Systemic Therapy, Creative Visualisation, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Emotional Freedom Technique.

As a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I am bound by its code of ethics and practice, and receive regular supervision from an experienced and qualified supervisor. I also regularly access continuing professional and personal development as part of my commitment to providing an excellent service to my clients.

Training, Qualifications & Experience

I trained at the prestigious Iron Mill Institute in Exeter, gaining an advanced diploma in counselling in January 2002. More recently I trained in supervision, qualifying as a counselling supervisor in 2007.

I have been counselling since 2001, both in private practice, with all age groups, including being part of a pioneering scheme to offer emotional support to carers in Torbay; and also part-time, helping to co-ordinate a team of counsellors in a local young people's support service.
More recently I have begun offering supervision to counsellors, both in private practice and for Check Point in Torquay.
