During our lifetime one in four of us will experience negative thoughts and feelings that can leave us feeling overwhelmed and floundering. It can feel like an insurmountable struggle to deal with current situations or unresolved issues from our past. I know that seeking out a counsellor is a brave decision to make. For you, it can be hugely beneficial to talk to someone who will listen and who wants to understand what you are experiencing, in complete confidence and without judgement. Counselling can help us to explore different ways of communicating our feelings and needs and gently challenge our existing beliefs.
Good therapy is about change: changing reactions, behaviours, a difficult aspect of self, challenging attitudes/beliefs about yourself or your story. I love working with clients who are prepared to jump in, take risks and seek solutions - this is the way to ensure real change. I will jump in and risk too. I value being human and involved in the therapy and am also practically minded and view the best wisdom as something that can directly be applied to life. A supervisee recently described me as "real, relational, ordinary, practical and not floaty/wispy". I like to incorporate psychoeducation and relevant theoretical information.
Hello, I'm Rachael. I have a warm, down to earth approach and I can offer you my empathy, support and kindness. I want to listen and validate the difficult emotions you are experiencing. I provide a secure place, where you will be able to talk about your thoughts and feelings in confidence, without the fear of being judged. I know the thought of having counselling can be daunting, but I will help you to feel comfortable and relaxed. All my clients and their issues are extremely important to me, so there is no such thing as a client or an issue being ‘unimportant,’ or a problem being too ‘minor’. The sessions are all about you...
Coming to counselling can feel a little daunting; sharing some of our private thoughts and feelings with someone that we do not know can be hard and can feel a little strange. I will help to make you feel comfortable and at ease by offering you a safe, confidential space for you to talk openly, and at a pace that suits you. I am committed to ensuring that you will feel heard, accepted and understood and I will make every effort to appreciate what it is like to be you and to help you understand your feelings and emotions.

Hi, my name is Barbara and I live in East Devon with my family. I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, Clinical Supervisor & Trainer. Now offering face to face sessions please contact me for more information.
Life can feel like an uphill struggle sometimes. Therapy is a space where we can discover the obstacles that might be holding you back, and unpack them so that you’re able to navigate life with more self-belief and self-acceptance. Therapy can create change, growth, or it might simply be the first step towards living the life you want to. My aim is to offer you support and provide a space that is comfortable, calm, and free from judgement. Your needs are at the centre of our therapeutic journey together
I’m Jennie, and I am a professional counsellor and psychotherapist based in Dawlish, Devon. I offer both short-term and ongoing counselling for anxiety, depression bereavement, low self-esteem, stress, relationships, abuse, work related issues and much more. With private, confidential sessions in my calming garden cabin, you will have a safe space where you will be truly listened to, where there is no judgement and where your emotions are validated.
I specialise in assisting adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression and anger related to family, social situations or work. My role is to help you gain understanding and find solutions so that you can once again cope with stress, enjoy home and work relationships, and feel a renewed sense of yourself and purpose in life. Sometimes issues are less clear-cut and there may be only a feeling of worry, loss or limitation that is difficult to explain. Again, the therapeutic process can help you gain insight, clarity and renewed vitality. I am a qualified psychotherapist practicing face to face in Exeter/Crediton (and also online).
I am accredited psychoanalytic psychotherapist, training psychoanalytic psychotherapist approved by the leading providers of training in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and a supervisor. I offer a non-judgmental space to talk and think, for how long it is needed, with the minimum frequency of 1-3 sessions per week.
It's natural to feel a little bit hesitant or nervous when looking for someone to talk to. It's a big step. If you're reading this, you've already made that step into looking into your options, that's something in itself. When, or if, you feel that you are ready to contact someone, know that I hold a safe space and a listening ear. Whether you are looking for your first experience of counselling, or perhaps you have had sessions with another therapist and are looking to start a new chapter. Feel free to get in touch and we can have a relaxed conversation regarding your hopes and expectations that may surround counselling.
I am a very experienced psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor based in both central Exeter and London. I provide a confidential, safe and impartial space where you can talk about difficult thoughts or emotional issues. I specialise in working with my clients to improve their quality of life and relationships. My role in offering both counselling and psychotherapy is to help you make sense of what you are experiencing, develop the skills to know and accept yourself and to make changes that are right for you.
I provide a calm, reassuring, non-judgemental space for you to explore your life and current concerns. You may be struggling with life events, mood patterns or health issues, or simply wanting to learn more about yourself. Therapy offers you place for you to bring whatever you are seeking to change or understand. Together we will resource you to adapt to physical and emotional shifts, increase your awareness of your needs, and to be more present and happy in your life. We will work together to find ease with, or solutions to, your challenges and enable you to thrive.
I have worked in the NHS for over 20 years and I realise that therapy can be a new and unusual approach for people. I often work with folk who are finding things hard, and need a neutral form of support. I can offer direct support, teaching and practice in cognitive and behavioural techniques, or relaxation and mindfulness ideas to help. The goals that a person wants to work towards might be crystal clear to them, or they might refine these as we work together.
The therapy I offer is relational and encompasses all of you and all of your broader (systemic) situation. This can sound challenging to some who may be primarily thinking about a single issue, however, what it means is that we are able to work holistically with your wholeness. I am able to work at depth and over the long term.
I believe that life is a gift; yet, at times, it can feel quite the opposite. Sometimes, we can feel overwhelmed by our difficulties. Often, a trained, non-judgmental and objective ear can help order one's thoughts, challenge ingrained patterns of behaviour, and manage emotions.
I offer a confidential and friendly space for clients who want to explore any aspect of their lives which is holding them back or stealing their joy. Issues clients bring to me include things such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, loss and trauma. My aim is to support my clients to find a way forward which works for them as individuals; helping them achieve their goals and make the changes they want to see in their lives. I have a particular specialism in eating disorders, all types of issues with food, and body image concerns.
I offer both in person and online support for people experiencing grief, loss or struggling with change. This can be bereavement, loss of a job, end of a relationship or simply feeling a bit lost in life itself. I also work with men's issues as well as LGBT concerns. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to unpack issues, explore your feelings and better understand what is going on for you. You may be feeling lost, anxious, uncertain or scared. That's understandable. That's okay. Considering counselling is a brave step. Well done for coming this far. Let's work together to try and find a way forward for you.
Welcome. Here you will be offered a warm welcome, and the opportunity to share what is going on for you in a calm, safe and confidential space. This is your space and your time. I am here to listen and support you to ‘unpack’ the thoughts, feelings and emotions that may have become painful, ignored, too heavy to carry, or silenced. Together we can work towards a better understanding of what has brought you here, and to enable the comfort and relief necessary to move forward.
If you are the one who usually copes and supports others, it can be difficult to come for help yourself. You may notice the impact on relationships, how you function at work, your ability to make decisions, stress levels and also your mood. You are welcome if you want support in getting confidence and capacity back in your life. I meet you for a free twenty minute consultation so you can get a sense of me before making any commitment. The majority of my work is online.
