About Me

Hi, my name is Denis Victor, BA (Hons Int Couns); FDA( Int Couns); Cert. in (Int Couns); BACP reg.

I provide Private affordable professional Counselling in Taunton-Somerset as Acorn therapy but I also work online via Zoom with people in other regions.

I strive to understand the world through my clients’ eyes and am sensitive to cultural differences, practices and world views.

Long term goal:

The long term goal for Acorn therapy is to offer access to professional, trained, experienced, and accredited counsellors, psychologists, psychotherapists, marriage and family therapists for anyone who is struggling

Me: 

Born in Uganda, I came to the UK in my mid-twenties and have lived here ever since. Although my childhood was quite challenging, it left me with a profound interest in the dynamic relationship between individuals and their cultures and backgrounds. Psychology has traditionally been Eurocentric. I would like to make counselling and therapy more inclusive by providing a counselling service that welcomes clients from all cultures and socio-economic classes. 

My professional journey began as a Youth worker. I worked with young people for over 10 years in a range of settings including youth clubs, schools, supported housing and charities.  When I  qualified as a Counsellor in 2017 I continued to work with young people in a private international college. I have also worked extensively with adults in my private practice.

I founded Acorn Therapy in 2018 to offer a fresh and unique counselling experience which would appeal to those who may not have considered therapy before. 

Besides therapy and counselling, I like cycling, walking, listening to and making music. 

I am a hand drummer and percussionist which is my second vocational passion – and I strongly believe in the healing properties of music.

Through our work together I hope you will be able to develop the skills needed for emotional health, resilience and well being.

If you think I might be the right Counsellor for you please email acorntherapy1@gmail.com or call, text, Whatsapp: 07561725262.
