A former nurse and NHS counsellor, I have experience of working with anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, abuse , suicidal thoughts, bereavement, carers' issues, and long-term illness.
I am an online and telephone counsellor. This type of counselling can be helpful if you have fluctuating availability, if you move around regularly, or if you care for a relative. You might feel anxious or depressed or want to talk about difficulties or worries. Counselling can help us to process emotions such as guilt, fear, or anger, and deal with difficult experiences, such as trauma or bereavement. I work in a non-judgmental way and provide support for a number of mental health issues. Send me a short message-many people take the first step towards counselling this way!

Life can be both beautiful and bleak, calm and stormy. Encountering pain and suffering is a human certainty. Experience has shown that when these challenges arrive it is not always possible to navigate them on your own. We are social beings and many of our problems are often created through unhealthy interactions with others. I believe, however, that with the right conditions, human connection can bring about restoration and growth.

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.

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.

If you're looking for an Exeter domestic abuse or domestic violence counsellor, these professionals provide domestic abuse therapy and counselling in Exeter.
