Triggers that bring you here may be caused by very different life challenges and I work with a range of issues such as relationship difficulties (friends, family and/or partner), workplace stresses, loss/bereavement and much more.
If you are the one who usually copes and supports others, it can be difficult to come for help yourself. You may notice the impact on relationships, how you function at work, your ability to make decisions, stress levels and also your mood. You are welcome if you want support in getting confidence and capacity back in your life. I meet you for a free twenty minute consultation so you can get a sense of me before making any commitment. The majority of my work is online.

I have a special interest in the transitions and dilemmas that can occur at any point during a woman’s life. These might include marrying; pregnancy; changes in role; relationship difficulties; and the challenges presented at menopause and during the aging process. It is common to experience uncertainty, confusion, fear, and pressure at times of change or loss. Depression and anxiety may emerge as well as other, less common mental health issues. Times of change or loss can be difficult for everyone. I work with all genders, without discrimination. It is not necessary to have a mental health diagnosis to benefit from our sessions.

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.

As a fully qualified counsellor, psychosexual and relationship therapist and supervisor I offer a fully confidential, non-judgemental and integrative approach to general sex therapy for couples and individuals with evidence-based and humanistic models, which support working through life challenges whilst gaining awareness, tools and confidence of self.
Sometimes we may feel that everything we experience in life is difficult, challenging or simply doesn't make sense anymore. The amount of pressure we need to handle every day combined with all these repressed and unprocessed memories of things we never dealt with can easily lead to many psycho-physical issues. We all possess physical, mental/emotional and sexual healths. When our physical health needs attention, we go to see a doctor. Sadly, we often disregard the latter. We think we can handle it all, where in fact we are getting weaker, less resilient to adversities and prone to negative feelings & reactions.

I believe the relationship is key in successful therapeutic work.
Life can be hard at times... Are you struggling with everyday situations, are you anxious, depressed or just wondering what its all about? Perhaps you are having relationships problems? I can work with individuals or couples to explore how your situation can be improved and what changes you might need to make. Maybe I'm the person who can be by your side while you make sense of what is making you unhappy or not right in your life... if it sounds as if I'm the right person, please call. I'd really like to try and help.

I work with a wide range of difficulties such as anxiety, stress, relationship and family problems, trust issues, betrayal/affairs etc alongside more specialist counselling for alcohol, drugs, addictive/destructive behaviour, trauma and PTSD. I find most people like to have balance between talking about the past and concentrating on achieving change in the here and now. I provide a safe space free from judgment, or the need to censor yourself, where you can explore and gain insight into whatever is holding you back from being at peace with who you are and how you live your life.

Though I work with all aspects of emotional and mental health and wellbeing, I have a special interest in communication, relationship and pre&post-natal issues, either with individuals or couples.
Welcome! I have been working as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 2001 and work as a supervisor too with practices in both Exeter and London. I believe that many of our difficulties develop as a result of our early life and past experiences, including trauma. We repeat patterns in our lives in the hope that things will get resolved. Therapy offers, in a confidential and safe space, the possible facilitation of being able to recognise these patterns and approach them from a new perspective.

An empathic response is essential in the building of the relationship which is acknowledged to be the bedrock of successful therapy.
Counselling can seem a challenge if you have never sought this kind of help before, but my aim at the outset is to provide the beginnings of a therapeutic relationship which can the door to the exploration of experience of the past, as well as the present. The aim of therapy can be specific, or obscure, but together we will work towards an achievable goal. I work intuitively, but with firm boundaries which keep us both safe within a very special relationship . Therapy can be long term, or short term, but it is the client who decides what number of sessions is going to be most beneficial.

Hello, I'm Basia Louise. I'm an experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist and a member of BACP with a private practice in Newton Abbot. I also volunteer with DCCP a not for profit counselling agency. I believe one of the most important aspect in counselling, is first, in choosing the person you'll do your best work with and then in the building of that theraputic relationship of trust. I offer an open, caring, safe and non judgemental space where I help people get to the root of what is causing their problems and support them in discovering ways to change their lives for the better.

Relationship Issues Counsellors
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

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