My therapy room in Tiverton, Mid Devon, near Exeter

Welcome

I’m Gram Davies, a psychotherapeutic counsellor based in Tiverton, Mid Devon. Psychotherapeutic counselling is “talk therapy,” which feels quite different to other kinds which use a lot of exercises or set protocols. Counselling is a private conversation, away from everyday assumptions and expectations.

I work with individual adults (16+) on a full range of therapeutic issues. I’m a higher level practitioner with a special interest in the ways nourishing relationships help us adapt to the complexities of contemporary life. In therapy, who you are personally and how you belong socially both matter, although we can all feel these are in conflict sometimes. It is natural to want to change while also wanting to preserve what you have. If you would like to speak together in a way that can be inquisitive about what is really going on, this type of therapy may suit you.

My approach looks at what happens between people, and how things that are outside our awareness can influence this. Wherever your experience has not met with recognition, as can happen in contexts like expressing gender, living with disability, being neurodivergent or surviving abuse, I would certainly welcome working with you.

Psychotherapeutic counselling offers a steady, regular setting which can become somewhere the specific, private and personal needn’t always stay silent.

Examples of what brings some people to therapy:

  • Mood and emotional disturbances
  • Stress or grief
  • Problems related to work, illness or society
  • Development and adversity
  • Difficulty in relationships with others
  • Identity questions
  • Doubts about meaning and purpose
  • Choices
  • Repeating life patterns and habits
  • Hope for recovery
