Particularly if you are feeling very anxious, or perhaps recovering from trauma and have PTSD symptoms like flashbacks, nightmares and hypervigilance, the therapeutic relationship will gradually increase your ability to trust, and to feel safer in the world and in your body.
My name is Victoria, and I am an accredited counsellor with many years experience of working with life's difficulties, including anxiety, depression, relationships, bereavement and trauma. I have specialist experience in working with the ongoing impact of sexual abuse and rape. I offer in-person counselling in a ground floor therapy room in central Exeter, and I also work via Zoom and telephone. I offer a safe, confidential space to talk through issues that are troubling you, at your pace, so you can move forward with your life. We'll work together to establish a trusting relationship, where you feel listened to and understood.

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.

I am a qualified to work with Trauma and PTSD , as well as working with relational and sexual issues and Couples.
Good therapy is about change: changing reactions, behaviours, a difficult aspect of self, challenging attitudes/beliefs about yourself or your story. I love working with clients who are prepared to jump in, take risks and seek solutions - this is the way to ensure real change. I will jump in and risk too. I value being human and involved in the therapy and am also practically minded and view the best wisdom as something that can directly be applied to life. A supervisee recently described me as "real, relational, ordinary, practical and not floaty/wispy". I like to incorporate psychoeducation and relevant theoretical information.

People come to therapy for many different and important reasons. For some it is to discuss difficult and emotional experiences, while for others its to have a space in their week to reflect and make time to check-in with themselves. I ask all my clients to come with an open-mind as therapy can take you on a journey of self-discovery. I have worked with many clients with varying degrees of personal difficulties; severe and mild distress including depression, anxiety, suicide, low-self-esteem, earlier life trauma, PTSD , relational difficulties and many more.

I have over 20 years experience working within mental health, I have extensive training and I specialise in complex ptsd and generational trauma.
Life is not always easy. This can be especially true when early issues or trauma may have impacted on our understanding of the world. It may be that trusting others is hard and that you can find yourself following the same unhelpful patterns. How you relate to yourself, others and the world in general may pose challenges and make it difficult to relax or find enjoyment in life. This can also lead to difficult emotional states, or the opposite of feeling numb and cut off, struggling to connect with life and those around you. We can be left feeling lost and out of touch with who we really are and what we actually want in life.

Reaching out can be hard. Are you feeling overwhelmed? struggling to cope with your situation? your emotions? your experiences? If your trust has been damaged, talking to someone who will take time to understand you can be a huge relief. Perhaps you need support through a crisis or you are at the end of your tether with multiple stresses. Even if you have longterm issues that seem stuck, talking to someone can make a difference. You may gain insight into the roots of your difficulties and find qualities in yourself that have never had a chance to develop. The aim is to help you live a more rewarding life.

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.
