The Pegasus Commitment
We are deeply committed to men’s emotional health and well-being and are working towards zero male suicides across Devon and Cornwall.
Through our crisis prevention management, we are working to reduce the strain on the front line services such as the NHS, Police.
Beata has been developing her skills and experience in this field since she started her counselling studies in 2010 and specialises in working with men.
We offer a warm, non-judgmental, compassionate approach to each individual. Our team have worked on a wide range of psychological, mental and physical issues. They are able to draw on their experience, skills and integrity to provide a secure and supportive space for personal change and growth.
Whether it is sign posting to the correct healthcare authority or providing long-term counselling, each person’s case is considered on an individual basis following an initial discussion.
Beata has experience in a wide range of therapeutic techniques and is happy to talk through various methods to ensure the person is comfortable with the entire process.
The primary mode of counselling used is the Person-Centred approach and all trainee counsellors work within this mode. We provide a safe and confidential space for you to explore the issues causing you tension, anxiety or distress. It is this therapeutic relationship that facilitates your growth and your change.
