Simon Heath

Tutor & Partner

Hello, I am Simon; a tutor and partner at Step by Step Counselling College and an Ecotherapist – specialising in walk and talk therapies - I have a strong belief in the power of (re)connecting with nature as part of the therapeutic process.  Before setting up Step by Step with Becky, I was a counselling tutor for six years, and before that worked in a variety of environments including a prison, hospitals and a watermill.  My passion in teaching, focuses on growth through personal development and cultural identity, and I am really excited to be able to bring these and many other creative elements together in my teaching.

Becky Whittaker

Tutor & Partner

Hi, my name is Becky and I am a partner and tutor here at Step by Step Counselling College. Simon & I developed the college to be a warm, supportive and rich space to learn in. I am an experienced counsellor and supervisor, with over a decades experience of working in private practice. I have always had a very special interest in working with student counsellors on their road through to qualifying, so I created and host the podcast You, Me & The Counselling World. I have past experience in training and mentoring, so it is time to bring my skills together, with my passion for helping, to grow confidence. I am looking forward to helping you to become the counsellor you want to be. 

Henri Treece


Hi, I'm Henri. I moved from a successful career in International Banking, People Management and Training and found a love of counselling. I was able to transfer my people skills in setting up a counselling service which included emotional telephone support and issue focussed training for unpaid carers across Devon. My passion then turned to teaching and I have been working as a counselling tutor for the last 10 years. My current role will be coming to an end in 2022 and I have been privileged enough to be able to join this wonderful team and continue to help others fulfill their passion for counselling. Feedback that I regularly receive is that by being my truly unique & genuine
self, I have given others the courage to do the same.
