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.

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).

To really know hard anxiety , depression, individual relationships and maybe addiction is for you.
It takes a great deal of courage to say, "now is the right time to try and work on myself." I really understand how constant thoughts may keep you awake. Or, you struggle to communicate at work, with family or even yourself. And when it feels overwhelming, it is hard to know where to begin. For me, working in each present moment to hear your narrative to how best to meet your needs is key to relieving some difficulties. And if that is hard to even consider to do, let's start together and let me help you through what maybe blocking feeling happy and well.

I am trained and qualified in helping clients with a variety of problems from depression and anxiety to Personality Disorders.
Clients generally come to me when they are struggling with some aspect of their emotions, thoughts or behaviour. My aim is to help my client with accepting or changing some aspect of these three areas. Every client comes with unique issues and from my seat I view the issues as one, "a block in the road to wellness". I am keenly aware that all clients come with individual goals and I am here to help. Many of my clients use the phrase “I just want to feel better". This is my hope for everyone who engages with me in therapy. “TO FEEL BETTER” I offer confidentiality, openness and transparency at all times.

Anxiety Counsellors
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for an Exeter anxiety counsellor, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counselling in Exeter.
