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. I am a qualified psychotherapist practicing face to face in Exeter/Crediton (and online when needed). I offer a tiered 'equalising' fee structure which invites those on higher incomes to pay more in order that I can offer a reduced rate to those who cannot afford the standard rate. Contact me for more info.

Through my personal experiences, as well as professional, I am capable of exploring complex and emotionally troubling issues stemming from traumas such as grief, abuse, loneliness and disconnection, relationships, anxiety, depression and issues around being able to express anger.
Being understood and accepted, without judgement and with compassion, is the most important experience we can receive from another person. I have a extensive experience working with trauma(PTSD&CPTSD), bereavement, anxiety (fear), abuse, mental health issues, depression as well as general feelings of hopelessness and sadness and I will offer my experience and knowledge to help empower you to experience yourself, understand yourself and feel more confidant and emotionally connected. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I can be found on their website.

It's completely understandable if you yearn for a profound change in your life—a transformation that encompasses your relationships, thoughts, and behaviours.

My clients are adults, men and women (I particularly welcome older adults) who realise they need support in dealing with a broad range of life challenges such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, anger, loneliness, or work related stress.
As a compassionate and nurturing male with experience working with Mind, the NHS and a leading dementia charity as well as volunteering with the Samaritans and Cruse Bereavement Support, I offer a special therapeutic relationship for those undergoing unwanted and distressing changes in their lives. I therefore place great store by the initial free phone or Zoom meeting as a ‘get to know’ session, where we will also explore how best I could support you. I will not claim to erase life problems, but I can help you to cope positively with them through developing new insights, enabling you to live with purpose.

Hi, my name is Jane Blackburn. If you're reading this, you’ve probably found that life isn’t always as straight-forward as we’d like and that it can really take a toll on each of us. I have experience supporting people facing all sorts of challenges in their lives including: anxiety, stress, depression, panic attacks, difficulties expressing themselves, low self-esteem, and relationship difficulties, to name but a few. I can even support you if you just feel a little bit ‘off’, as though things are ‘not quite right’. The first step towards making a positive change is to ask for help, even if that feels daunting to do.

Hi, thank you for visiting my profile. Approaching counselling can feel scary & overwhelming, like opening a can of worms. As part of my training, I too had to open that can with great trepidation. However, a counsellor can help you safely sift through rather than spill them all out in one chaotic, squirming mess. You are in control of your story. I see my job as helping you to "unpack" and explore your past and present. I have a wealth of lived experiences that have brought me to where I am today, and I am passionate about the empowerment, healing and personal growth that the counselling relationship can bring - human or canine!

Making the first move to see a counsellor can feel like a big step, especially if this is the first time you've done it. Perhaps you feel like you’re worrying more than usual at the moment? Or maybe there is a specific issue on your mind that you can't seem to get past. Perhaps you've had enough of feeling anxious, or you're feeling low and 'stuck'. When we have the opportunity to share how we feel in a safe, confidential environment it can help us to develop a toolkit of coping strategies to deal with times when things get tough.

I like to think about the benefits of Psychotherapy a little bit like building a house extension, but needing to lay a foundation first. Our original foundation might need some stronger materials or extra scaffolding. Psychotherapy can help to provide that scaffolding, through processing your feelings in a supportive environment. This allows for an exploration of who you are so that you can build your extension, with materials that you choose.

What does it mean to be yourself in a society that discourages self-expression? To live in a world that disconnects us from each other and from ourselves. A world that distracts us from what’s important and meaningful. The messages we receive from people is not ‘be who you are’, but instead ‘be what I need’. In such a place, being ourselves is a revolutionary act. In what ways are people telling us to be what they need? I’m glad you asked. It can be as simple as a raised eyebrow, or a disparaging look. Or more obvious do’s and don’ts. We get the message.

Anger Management Counsellors

How long does therapy take for anger management?

Treatment duration depends on the person’s specific challenges and circumstances. There are treatments for anger problems that are shorter and more goal-oriented, like Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), which can last weeks to months. Others, like Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) may last between six months and a year, while a more intensive treatment, like psychodynamic therapy, is open-ended, and clients may see their therapist for a year or longer.

How do you know if you need therapy for anger management?

Everyone gets mad from time to time. But when angry outbursts become frequent and cause damage to relationships, whether at home or in the office, it may be a good time to look into therapy. A therapist can assess where a client’s anger may be coming from, suggest strategies for averting angry outbursts, and help a client create a plan to become a calmer version of themselves.

Is there medication for anger management?

Medications do exist that help people mitigate the feeling of anger, but these are reserved for people with anger-related psychiatric disorders, such as intermittent explosive disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, or in some cases borderline personality disorder. In these cases, antidepressant medications may be prescribed to help with the client’s symptoms. In most cases of anger management, however, talk therapy is the recommended treatment, along with lifestyle changes where relevant.

What’s the best way to encourage someone to seek help for anger issues?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love for the person while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Offering specific examples of how an individual’s behavior affected either themselves or others should be done with compassion and with empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
