Do you find yourself derailed by relationship anxiety, despite being successful or confident in other areas of your life? This experience is called anxious attachment. It stems from past relationship experiences and makes it difficult to feel secure in relationships. Your feeling of not being “good enough” causes not only temporary emotional pain, but can interfere with nearly all areas of your life. But the good news is that it is possible to overcome attachment anxiety and feel more loved, secure, and confident.

It's natural to feel a little bit hesitant or nervous when looking for someone to talk to. It's a big step.  If you're reading this, you've already made that step into looking into your options. That's something in itself.  When, or if, you feel that you are ready to contact someone. Know that I hold a safe space and a listening ear. My aim? To give you space to put out the fires and create more space for the process of change to begin.

All of us need to find resilience at times of stress, or just to deal with day to day issues that may cause us anxiety and impact on the quality of our lives. Life events such as bereavement or change affect us in different ways with no simple, correct way to respond. I offer a way to share issues and find solutions beyond family and friendship groups, within a therapeutic relationship.

For all of us there are times when we need the support, understanding and guidance of others.  Knowing there is someone you can trust, that will listen and try their best to help using all their knowledge and experience can be a powerful and transformative experience. I am passionate about guiding people on their journey to recovery and a meaningful life. Throughout my career I have specialised in helping people with eating disorders, and have over 10 years experience in NHS ED services. I am also experienced in working with people to overcome many other difficulties including low self-esteem, depression and anxiety disorders.

Hi, thank you for visiting my profile. Approaching counselling can feel scary & overwhelming, like opening a can of worms. As part of my training, I too had to open that can with great trepidation. However, a counsellor can help you safely sift through rather than spill them all out in one chaotic, squirming mess. You are in control of your story. I see my job as helping you to "unpack" and explore your past and present. I have a wealth of lived experiences that have brought me to where I am today, and I am passionate about the empowerment, healing and personal growth that the counselling relationship can bring - human or canine!

I specialise in assisting adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression and anger related to family, social situations or work. My role is to help you gain understanding and find solutions so that you can once again cope with stress, enjoy home and work relationships, and feel a renewed sense of yourself and purpose in life. I am a qualified psychotherapist practicing face to face in Exeter/Crediton (and online when needed). I offer a tiered 'equalising' fee structure which invites those on higher incomes to pay more in order that I can offer a reduced rate to those who cannot afford the standard rate. Contact me for more info.

Hello, I'm Rachael. I provide a safe, secure place, where you will be able to talk about your thoughts and feelings in confidence, without the fear of being judged. I know the thought of having counselling can be daunting, but I will help you to feel comfortable and relaxed. All my clients and their issues are extremely important to me, so there is no such thing as a client or an issue being ‘unimportant,’ or a problem being too ‘minor’. The sessions are all about you...

I work as a Cognitive & Mindfulness Based psychological trainer. I train people in how to enhance their self-belief for: resilience, motivation, managing pressure & performance related emotions. Pressure in life, as in high-demand or performance environments is a certainty & how we perceive pressure determines our response. We can choose how to think about pressure, but this depends on our levels of self-belief, which is an essential ingredient when navigating demanding situations. In these environments we need access to skills to strengthen & take care of our mental fitness & mental health. We can train these skills with support.

I'm a psychoanalytic psychotherapist trained to MA and Doctoral level respectively with adults and children and adolescents. I'm also a course tutor for a psychotherapy course at The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. I have experience of working across the age range with a wide variety of mild to moderate, sometimes more severe presenting problems. Some people see me because they're very unhappy, distressed or worried, others come because they want to understand themselves better and they're curious about why they encounter the same patterns.

If you are feeling lost, overwhelmed and unsupported coming to talk with me could be really helpful. Many feel their difference leads to isolation and even external aggression, causing them to withdraw even further. Speaking with a counsellor/psychotherapist such as myself can offer perspective and provide clarity at a time when things seem confused and chaotic.
