In my work with Mind, Cruse, GP surgeries and the Margaret Jackson Centre in Exeter, I have found a good counsellor-client relationship is core to successful counselling. I therefore place great store by the initial free phone or Zoom meeting as a ‘get to know’ session for both sides, where we will also explore how best I could support you. I will not claim to cure illness or erase life problems, but I can help you to cope positively with them through exploring different perspectives and developing new insights, enabling you to feel better about yourself and to live with purpose, despite the hardships you face.

I offer affordable integrative counselling, which helps with overcoming difficulties such as low mood, anxiety, poor self-esteem, bereavement and relationship issues. You may be lacking direction in your life at the moment, it may seem meaningless or you might feel low in confidence. Perhaps you are looking to find some clarity around what's important to you and to explore how you can bring more of this into your life? Or maybe you want to improve how you feel about yourself? Or perhaps you need a warm and compassionate space where you can fully feel your grief to be able to start to move forwards in life again?

I'm a relational integrative therapist meaning, the relationship is the therapy. It also means I use different types of therapy to meet your needs because, you are unique. Integrative therapy helps you become a more integrated whole person, better able to experience the entire range of your behaviour, emotions and thoughts as well as improving your relationship with yourself and others. Neuroplasticity continues throughout the lifespan which means that change and improvement in the way we feel is always possible and therapy is the best way to achieve this.

I work mainly with adults from all walks of life, all looking to find a more meaningful and fulfilling way of living. Whatever your issues are, together we will explore why you are feeling this way, and work towards change. We will look at what has led to your current issues and what it is you are looking for in order to create those changes. I have a lot of experience working not only face to face but also online and via phone. There is always a choice of a better way of feeling but we sometimes get stuck and unable to find a way forward alone. I can help you to untangle how you are feeling and clear the way for a new path.

Your life. Your time. You. Time to sort things out, explore, grow and CHANGE. Time to stop being pulled in all directions; too caught up on the treadmill of your own thoughts to find an alternative way of tackling a problem. My sessions offer you a circuit breaker; a chance to slow down, unravel your thoughts...and breathe! Stepping back and viewing your life from a more profound and reasoned angle, you will have the opportunity to share your thoughts and questions, in a secure and non-judgemental setting. It will be time well spent in order for your future life to be spent well.

Counselling is a safe place where you are able, with the help of your counsellor, to explore the challenges that you face and find more helpful ways of understanding and dealing with them. When we are listened to with empathy and understanding we are able to challenge our beliefs and existing understanding and change them into more helpful ways of seeing our world.

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...

I am currently meeting via Skype/Zoom or telephone. If you want to commence and are worried about CV-19 please do contact and we can make arrangements. We can all experience difficult and painful times and life some sometimes feel hard to manage, often leaving us feeling alone and afraid, feeling that we need some support and understanding from a professional. My practice is to work alongside people in order to help them gain some insight and understanding about their difficulties as well as feel supported and heard. Depression, anxiety, loss and separation are some of the more difficult issues we come up against in life.

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.

If you are looking for a safe space where you can finally let go, and heal what is making your life smaller than it could be, you are in the right place. I've helped many people achieve things that they never believed possible, letting go of their past negative thoughts, overwhelming feelings and dysfunctional behaviours. Your anxiety and depression are just symptoms that something happened to you that was difficult to digest. It is not who you are. When you discover what brought up those symptoms and heal those wounds, your anxiety and depression can disappear. You can then create something new, more authentic. Let me guide you.

We don't get wounded alone and we don't heal alone." Carl Jung. Are wounds from the past affecting how you are functioning in the present and your thoughts of the future? Our early experiences can create patterns of trust and distrust which affect how we are in our relationships with others and ourselves, as well as how we respond to trauma and stress throughout our lives on many different levels. However, whilst we may be shaped by the past I believe that we do not need to be trapped by it.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Exeter 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 Exeter 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 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. 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.
