I’m Parie an integrative therapist helping clients on their journey. As an integrative therapist I believe there isn’t just one therapeutic approach that can help a client in all situations. Instead, I take into account you as an individual and your circumstances, and use elements of different approaches to help you explore and cope with your problems. So if you feel stuck repeating behaviour patterns that are working against you, or maybe you are in a bad place which is overwhelming and you can't see a way out it then please contact me to book a session where we can work together to explore what is happening for you.

Your life. Your time. You. Time to sort things out, explore, grow and CHANGE. Time to stop being pulled in all directions; too caught up on the treadmill of your own thoughts to find an alternative way of tackling a problem. My sessions offer you a circuit breaker; a chance to slow down, unravel your thoughts...and breathe! Stepping back and viewing your life from a more profound and reasoned angle, you will have the opportunity to share your thoughts and questions, in a secure and non-judgemental setting. It will be time well spent in order for your future life to be spent well.

I work best with clients that are ready to make a commitment to change, and are ready to develop skills of self-reflection and compassion. Many of my clients have big questions about life and their place in it, as well as questions of who they are and what they want. Some clients don't really know what they want but know that something isn't quite right - that's ok too!

Often, the reasons given to me for arriving to therapy are feature one or more of the following: anxiety, depression, sadness, self confidence, life changing illnesses, self identity, early childhood, past or present relationships, bereavements, traumatic experiences, injury and mental health diagnosis. How these issues and difficult feelings manifest in people's lives are unique and so 'reasons' may be identified as problems or difficulties with: addictions; work; intimate or family relationships; children and parenting; personal or spiritual identity, or something existential. Therapy offers to solute and salve these issues.

You may have experienced something quite difficult or perhaps you are suffering from anxiety or low mood, relationships might not be going so well, or you feel stressed and overwhelmed. In therapy we can explore how these issues are showing up and discover what you need to move forward. We can work together to make sense of your situation and feelings. I will listen exquisitely, gently challenge your beliefs and encourage fresh perspectives. Through small shifts you may find an alternative way. This approach builds on the momentum that brought you to therapy in the first place.

Hello I am a Core Process Psychotherapist. I practice in Exeter and Crediton. I believe we have a longing to be truly seen and heard. In Core Process Psychotherapy, together, we slow down enough to see the ways in which the strategies we have used to cope can keep us stuck long after they are helpful. With this seeing you then have a choice to take another path and be in the world in a freer more satisfying way.

I work with adults offering counselling for all manner of issues that may be causing distress, confusion, grief or a feeling of being stuck. The counselling relationship is one where we start to feel safe enough to begin to be able to notice and explore our situation from different perspectives. This can be a relief, and transformative in so many ways.
