Therapy as Individual as You Are

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working in central Exeter for clients across Devon. I also offer online counselling throughout the UK. I offer individual therapy for children, young people and adults as well as couples counselling and family therapy.

Everyone deserves a safe space to be heard and to work through what is going on for them. Despite what you may think, there is no such thing as a 'typical' counsellor. I am down to earth, try to make you feel at ease and will not use fancy jargon. Friends and family can help to a point but you may struggle to open up to them fully.

Taking the first step can be hard and even feel intimidating. Maybe you have considered having counselling several times but put it off for various reasons. Once you have made the decision to go ahead I am committed to making you feel at ease. You have the option of an introductory telephone call where you can ask any questions that you may have about the process.

There is no one size fits all approach in counselling or psychotherapy, I am here to listen and work on what will help you.

  • Be genuine and honest with you

  • Be approachable and down to earth

  • Listen to you without judgement

  • Help you make sense of your feelings

  • Not be afraid to gently challenge you

  • Welcome any real language (even if it is swearing), I want you to be comfortable being you

  • Only ask questions that are relevant, not just because I am interested in the answer

  • Stay up to date in my skills and training,

  • Tell you what to do

  • Expect you to be anyone but yourself

  • Continually ask "How do you feel about that?"

  • Nod at you constantly

  • Sit and stare at you in silence until it becomes awkward

  • Talk to you about my own problems or make comparisons between our lives

  • Pretend to be someone that I am not, it is important that we both 'show up' as ourselves

  • Ask you to tell me information about yourself that isn't relevant

I have expertise in working with:-

However I do not only see clients needing therapy in these areas, I help people with a wide range of struggles including:-

Anger, Depression and Low Mood, PTSD, Suicidal Ideation, Relationship and Family Issues, Panic, Intrusive Thoughts, Self Harm, Eating Disorders, Borderline Personality Disorder, OCD, Behaviour Issues, Attachment issues, Bullying, School Refusal, Narcissism and overcoming having lived with a narcissistic parent, Low Self Esteem, Loss, Stress, Behaviour Issues, Parenting Neurodiverse Children, Separation and Life Transitions.

My door (or online space) is open no matter what you are struggling with.

Counselling and Psychotherapy offers a safe space for young people and adults to sort through thoughts, untangle complex emotions and to make sense of things that are happening in their life when it all feels a bit jumbled up.

Therapy can help when life has got you in a bit of a muddle by unravelling what is going on for you one thread at a time.
