If you're reading this, you're curious about what therapy can do for you. You might have issues with relationships, communication, family, self-worth, body image, mood, eating or sleep, or you might just be feeling vaguely disconnected and don't know why. You might want to be able to make sense of what you feel, why you feel the way you do and then know what to do about it. One thing is for sure - you'll learn a lot about yourself in therapy - how you got here, what you need, how to take care of yourself.

I am here to help you figure out what is going on in your life. I believe that self-acceptance is key to personal growth.

I incorporate mindfulness and grounding techniques into the therapy to provide skills to help with anxiety and depression.

I’ve worked with clients with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, workplace and student stress, loss, bereavement, childhood issues including abuse, eating disorders, cancer rehabilitation, fertility, adoption, trauma, panic, anger and major life transitions.
Are you feeling that you need a supportive relationship to help with issues in your life? At different times in life we may feel overwhelmed, alone or stuck and it can help to talk in a non judgemental setting. You may be considering therapy for many reasons and the first step is to just make contact. This can bring feelings of nervousness but it can also be a very exciting moment. You can ask for the help and support you need. It’s very important that you feel completely comfortable with your counsellor, that they are a person you can share all of yourself with.

I have worked in a range of settings, including in management in cancer and sexual health services, and as a hospice bereavement counsellor and cancer support counsellor.
No matter our age, life seems to offer us challenges, again and again. Have you ever wondered how to deal with its uncertainty and confusion, with things not turning out as we had hoped, with the loss of our sense of who we are and where we are going? If so, you are not alone! I believe it is a part of the human experience that at different times in our lives, we all face loss, bereavement, feeling stuck, and/or a crisis of meaning and purpose.​ This can also come in the form of a mental health 'crisis' - such as anxiety, depression and self-harm - or might come in the form of a spiritual crisis, or sense of hopelessness.

E, chronic pain and recovery from Stroke/ Cancer .
It can be a great relief to be able to share your worries and stress with someone. We all struggle at times and as much as we would like to talk to our friends or family we feel unable to let them in. Sometimes we feel stuck, alone and not able to find the solution to the problem that's making us unhappy. Being able to talk openly with someone who can support you, without judgement, as you explore your feelings and the circumstances that are causing you stress can make a big difference. You will start to feel in control, see things more clearly and feel more confident to make the changes you want to in your life.

Do you constantly feel anxious and frustrated with yourself ? Do you keep repeating the same behaviour patterns ? There is a reason for this. I have helped many clients to work through traumatic life experiences. You can start again with a new self confidence that comes from a place of love rather than hate for who you are. Things do not have to stay the same. You can change how you feel about yourself and learn to accept yourself, even the bits you don't like ! You can learn to regulate your feelings and work with them rather than being afraid and controlled by them.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Barnstaple are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Barnstaple then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Barnstaple, or Child Psychologists in Barnstaple.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Barnstaple psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Barnstaple specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
