I am qualified in DBT so use a lot of mindfulness, relaxation, and emotion regulation ideas.
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.

One of the main things that I love about my counselling work is the unique opportunity it gives me to be alongside and encourage you in the good times and bad times. I strongly believe that life should not be a lonely journey and I value the relationship element of counselling above all else. We can all at times be surrounded by others but feel completely alone in our thoughts or our troubles, not wanting to burden those we love. Through my work I have the privilege to travel alongside people as they bravely face their issues, creating with them moments of sanctuary in which they can gain perspective and find their way.

I have over a decade of experience working therapeutically with individuals, couples and groups of all ages. I support my clients who bring a broad range of issues by using gentle yet powerful techniques that help them discover healthy strategies for coping. I see counselling and therapeutic work as a collaborative process in which the client brings her or his experiences in both a conscious and an unconscious way and I bring my awareness, my experience and my respectful curiosity.

Therapy offers a private and sacred space to think, feel and experience your true self. It explores your needs and processes feelings as they arise and from this comes a new clarity of awareness. I sometimes think of it as coming out of the dark woods and into the light. This transforming of the self takes place at first within the therapeutic relationship. Being listened to unfolds a discovery of new insights, which activates the development of inner strength, resilience, resolve, and purpose, as it gradually releases you from the felt wounds you have been carrying, such as, anger, confusion, sadness, grief, regret or loss.

Dialectical (DBT) Counsellors
If you're looking to find dialectical behaviour counselling in Exeter or for an Exeter DBT psychologist, you can find Exeter dialectical behaviour therapists who use DBT therapy to provide clients with new skills to manage painful emotions and decrease conflict in relationships.

What is DBT Counselling?
DBT was originally developed to treat borderline personality disorder. However, research shows that DBT therapy in Exeter has also been used successfully to treat people experiencing depression, bulimia, binge-eating, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic-stress disorder, and substance abuse. DBT skills are thought to have the capability of helping those who wish to improve their ability to regulate emotions, tolerate distress and negative emotion, be mindful and present in the given moment, and communicate and interact effectively with others.

How do I find an Exeter DBT therapist?
DBT assumes that effective treatment must pay as much attention to the behavior and experience of providers working with clients as it does to clients’ behavior and experience. Thus, treatment of the providers is an important part of any Exeter DBT counselling program, and therapists should practice the skills themselves. They need to know basic behavior therapy techniques and DBT treatment strategies. Look for a Exeter DBT counsellor or therapist with specialized training and experience in DBT.

Who are the best Exeter DBT Psychologists?
The best DBT treatment typically consists of individual therapy sessions and DBT skills groups. Find the best DBT therapists in Exeter who offer individual therapy sessions, ensuring that all therapeutic needs are being addressed. The best DBT counsellors in Exeter will help the patient stay motivated, apply the DBT skills within daily life, and address obstacles that might arise over the course of treatment.
