Self awareness is a supreme gift, a treasure as precious as life. This is what makes us human.
- Irvin Yalom.
Fully Qualified and Insured Integrative Counsellor and BACP Member.
The counselling relationship is characterised by its confidential, non-judgemental and empathic nature. Technicalities aside, sometimes life is hard. I recognise that we are all individual and your reasons for coming to counselling will be as unique as you. Counselling can help you find ways of coping with traumatic experiences, managing harmful emotions or behaviours and help you to manage anxiety or depression.
As an Integrative Counsellor I have trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches. Just as all theories are different, so are each and every one of us, and this gives you and I the freedom to find an approach that resonates with you. My theoretical training includes CBT, humanistic and psychodynamic approaches to therapy. Whilst all of these techniques and theories enhance me professionally, it is the therapeutic relationship which you and I build that will become central to the therapy. That is why it is so important to find a therapist you feel you can build this trusting relationship with. If you feel that might be me, please continue through my website and read a little more about what I offer. Or better still give me a call. I offer a 20 minute free phone call to help you decide whether I am the right therapist for you.
I like to build relationships with my clients based on deep levels of trust and honesty. You are the expert on your own lived experience; however, when exploring our experiences and how they effect us, therapy can be a useful tool. Counselling can help you to implement changes, process trauma safely, increase self worth, manage symptoms of anxiety and depression, look back at how past relationships may be impacting you in the here and now and much more.
I currently offer face to face, telephone and online counselling for individuals and couples aged 18 and over.
Face to face sessions take place in Exeter city centre.
I offer both short and long term therapy, allowing you the freedom to decide how many sessions you would like.
