Or maybe you want to work collaboratively in a focussed and goal-oriented way on improving wellbeing, strengthening your self-care strategies or understanding and managing stress and anxiety better. I consider myself to be kind, compassionate and gently challenging and aim to create an environment in which clients can move towards changing their lives for the better, learning new skills and gaining insight.

Hello my name is Rachel and I offer counselling and therapy for adults. Sometimes we want to talk to someone in private about our thoughts and worries and counselling can offer a safe space for this to happen. I offer a warm, gentle and compassionate approach. I have worked as a therapist for over twelve years within the NHS and the private healthcare sector. I recognise that each person has their own unique life story and for many coming to therapy for the first time may feel uncomfortable. I aim to provide a calm therapeutic space for your voice to be heard, whilst also encouraging you to explore new ways forward.

Albert Einstein said “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving”. Life can be a rough ride. Keeping the balance and moving forward can be a challenge. It can involve stress, anxiety, depression and much more. But I believe through psychological therapies we can learn and, in some cases even master, the art of managing life successfully. To achieve this, I practise an integrative approach that draws strength from various therapies in the field. I am qualified and confident in using an integrative approach. My natural inclination is to really listen and offer empathy and understanding to people in need.

I am offering a low cost counselling service. Through my voluntary work I see the real need for assessable counselling and I am now able to provide that through Zoom or telephone. I first discovered counselling when I was referred to one many years ago. The experience for me was life changing. It was one of my first relationships that valued my choices and it and me gave me the tools, knowledge and courage to make changes in my life. I believe no one will know the truth about themselves until you find it by yourself. In doing so will give you greater value and empower you to make your own choices.

Clients have motivation to improve their situation. Counselling can help bring positivity and enjoyment to situations which may currently feel negative and depressing. Counselling can help a person to clarify their own emotional thoughts and processes around a troubling situation. Counselling will not bring new suggestions to your situations, it will enable you to think of new or different paths to resolving disturbing emotional situations in your life.

Sometimes in life problems seem insurmountable and it feels like things are falling apart. We can all find ourselves in a difficult place and counselling provides a place to explore and understand your thoughts and feelings about what is happening in your life. Problems in relationships, past traumas, loss and bereavement, addictions and forms of emotional numbing, painful childhood experiences, repeating patterns of behaviour, feeling stuck and unfulfilled are some of the reasons people come to see me. I find most people like to have balance between talking about the past and concentrating on achieving change in the here and now.

Life can take its toll on our wellbeing; it can throw us a curveball or wear us down over years of struggling. Trying to cope alone and carry on as though you're fine is exhausting and, in the end, can lead to breakdown. If you are feeling overwhelmed, struggling to cope and feeling unheard and unseen, or trying to manage a major life event but finding that you’re stuck unable to move forward, then counselling is the right next step for you. Counselling can hold you in a crisis and help you to heal, but it has a lot more to offer than crisis management.

Coping Skills Counsellors
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exacerbate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalisation, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, counsellors in Exeter can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Exeter or for an Exeter coping skills counsellor, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Exeter coping skills counsellors, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counselling.
