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.

Welcome! I have been working as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 2001 and work as a supervisor too with practices in both Exeter and London. I believe that many of our difficulties develop as a result of our early life and past experiences, including trauma. We repeat patterns in our lives in the hope that things will get resolved. Therapy offers, in a confidential and safe space, the possible facilitation of being able to recognise these patterns and approach them from a new perspective. (more detailed information can be found on www.psycho-dynamic.co.uk)

Maybe there is a specific event you are aware of, or thoughts & feelings are overwhelming for no known reason. Perhaps you've not been feeling yourself or maybe something has always been missing. Together, we can explore the feelings, thoughts & relational patterns that have been causing you distress. I can support you to gain a deeper understanding of the effects of past experiences & how these may impact your struggles in the present. I hope to encourage self-acceptance as a good enough person, quietening the inner critic & bringing compassion to the relationship you have with yourself & transforming your relationship with others.

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.

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.

Do you put on a brave face but feel different on the inside? Perhaps you’re empty and numb, or overwhelmed by emotions? Are you finding it hard to cope day-to-day? I know how tough life can be at times and how lonely it feels when no one seems to understand. If you’re wondering when you’ll feel happy or hopeful again, or you’re worrying about the future and fearing the worst, or maybe you’re struggling with a big change and a sense of who you are; I’d like to help. Being able to talk freely to someone, without fear of judgement or shame, can be a huge relief.

All of us need to find resilience at times of stress, or just to deal with day to day issues that may cause us anxiety and impact on the quality of our lives. Life events such as bereavement or change affect us in different ways with no simple, correct way to respond. I offer a way to share issues and find solutions beyond family and friendship groups, within a therapeutic relationship.

I work with LGBTQ+ folk who wish to meet a counsellor where those aspects of their identity will not be unnecessarily questioned or looked at, but can be spoken about respectfully and safely. I aim to offer you a sense of hope and empowerment, along with techniques you could use in your life to enhance or help you cope with your experience of existence. I can support you to explore whatever is going on in your life such as stress, grief (including for loss of pets), exploring gender identity, exploring sexuality, body image, anxiety or depression.

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.

Often the reasons given to me for arriving to therapy are about, anxiety, depression, sadness, self confidence, life changing illnesses, self identity, early childhood, past or present relationships, bereavements, traumatic experiences, and mental health diagnosis. How these issues and difficult feelings manifest in people's lives are unique and so they may be identified as problems or difficulties addictions; work, or daily activity; relationships; children and parenting; personal identity, questions of 'who I really am'; the 'state of the world', particularly climate and ecological anxieties.

I have a special interest in the transitions and dilemmas that can occur at any point during a woman’s life. These might include marrying; pregnancy; changes in role; relationship difficulties; and the challenges presented at menopause and during the aging process. It is common to experience uncertainty, confusion, fear, and pressure at times of change or loss. Depression and anxiety may emerge as well as other, less common mental health issues. Times of change or loss can be difficult for everyone. I work with all genders, without discrimination. It is not necessary to have a mental health diagnosis to benefit from our sessions.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Exeter then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety.

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 Exeter, or Child Psychologists in Exeter.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Exeter 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 Exeter specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others.

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.
