I've been a counsellor for 17 years, I support individuals and couples . Read more here, call 07734 364362, or click my website button to the left. Talking with me, I hope you'll experience a deep acceptance of you, just as you are. We explore together, building trust as we go, creating a deeper connection with your emotions, thoughts and behaviours. This allows a new relationship with yourself to emerge, bringing new perspectives and choices. I'll help you create lasting change, describing the life you want and moving towards it. If coming as a couple, I'll help you feel heard and understood, wherever you are in your relationship.

In couples counselling I will help you and your partner look closely at how you communicate with each other, what is stopping your loving understanding of each other and how to change that for the better.
My name is Lindsey Huggins and my focus is on being the catalyst who can help you change your own life for the better. At this moment, as you read this you have the opportunity to start changing your life and moving towards fulfilling your potential in whatever matters to you most. Take that opportunity, call or email me and we can start finding your way forward. Sometimes things happen to us over which we have no control, but what will shape our lives is how we deal with it. I work with individuals and couples to look at what is holding you back in your life and how to successfully move forward from that.

I work with individuals (adults, adolescents and children of all ages), couples , families and groups, who bring with them a range of life’s problems, challenges and possibilities. My aim is to encourage a deeper sense of self-awareness whilst focusing on the individual’s whole experience of life (behaviour, thoughts and feelings). Some clients bring specific issues to therapy: depression, anxiety, stress, sexual abuse, low self-esteem, relationship issues, eating disorders, low self-confidence, loss, unhappiness with work, home or life in general. I have an interest and experience working with people who have expereinced trauma.

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.

If you struggle with being in the world, with accepting yourself, or with a particular historical issue, I am here to support you journey towards recovery. I am especially interested in gender work - I particularly welcome men who wish to explore masculinity, and women who want to explore their relationship with men. Healthier relationship with ourselves, and others, is an achievable goal, and relies on empathy, compassion and challenge - I notice, and encourage attention on what is revealed in the moment. I understand struggle - I experienced, and have healed from mental health issues in my past, following an unsettled childhood.

Do you feel your potential in life is thwarted by past or present difficulties or trauma? Has your equilibrium, confidence and self esteem been undermined by this? Do you feel disempowered and unable to move forward? Sometimes, life's difficulties can prevent us from forming healthy relationships with ourselves and others, and prevent us thriving. I am a UKCP Psychotherapist in training, working to support people suffering with mental and emotional distress find more ease, balance, meaning and health in their lives.

It may well be that you are reading this because life has become overwhelming and exhausting. You may be having a hard time feeling good about who you are, or you may feel that life is passing you by. Perhaps you are in a relationship and feel alone or "stuck". Do you need someone to listen and really hear what you say; someone who feels safe and non- judgemental, but who also has the professional knowledge, and skills to enable you to achieve a sense of well being. If so, I can work with you on your therapeutic goals so that you develop personal insight and feel a sense of progress.

Hello and welcome. We all face difficulties at different times in our lives and it can be a courageous act to seek help.

With the support of counselling, you can return to feeling and experiencing a sense of peace and well-being in your life, and be resourced to meet any challenges in the future.

Feelings of being misunderstood, resulting in isolation, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety? Do you excel in creative-arts/engineering/sport, yet underachieve in other subjects? It could be that your learning style is at odds with mainstream education. Trying to fit into a society that favours viewing the world through an analytical lens where hard facts, certainty, and passing exams are the primary goal, can severely disadvantage creative thinkers. Creative people are often highly intelligent and talented yet find it hard for their voice to be heard, finding themselves falling by the wayside. I'd love to hear from you...

I am a registered psychologist and doctor of counselling psychology offering psychotherapy underpinned by a contemporary reading of the most relevant literature. I work from an attachment, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural perspective, integrating these to offer tailored ways of understanding and working with issues that will be unique to each person and set of circumstances. Most of the work happens in the room, though sometimes we might also set things outside of it, where appropriate.

You may come to therapy feeling stuck, overwhelmed, grieving or just struggling with the stuff life throws at you. Counselling can both ease emotional distress and empower you to move forward with your life. As a Counsellor I will be with you as you explore your thoughts and feelings, present in the moment and able to be with you in what may come. I can use humour in the sessions, acknowledging the absurdity of life and as way to break from intense thought cycles. I believe that taking joy in the moments and in all that life can bring has great value in difficult times.

Hello and welcome, I am here to offer you a safe space allowing you the time to pause and explore what is troubling you. Together we can try and make sense of it. My approach combines talking therapies with creative interventions adapted to your needs. Your might have a clear idea what you want to work through in counselling or it might be a jumble of feelings and thoughts. We all get lost in the chaos of our thoughts and feelings. Counselling helps us tune into and listening to our inner wisdom to help us move forwards with clarity to a more settled and empowered place. Whatever challenges you are facing, my hope is that I can help

Anxiety is normal. Yes, I just said that! Yet many of us grow up with the idea that anxious feelings are negative and to be avoided at all costs. I spent years trying to escape my anxiety, which only made it worse. The more I pushed, the more it pushed back, until I spent all my time pushing. It was exhausting, resulting in OCD behaviours and panic attacks. Then I learnt to change my relationship with anxiety. I realised that to be anxious is to be human. I stopped struggling and instead began to work with my anxiety in new ways that gave me more options, both in the moment and in the long term.

In my experience we may all at times face hurdles too daunting to negotiate alone. I work with a wide range of issues focussing on clients who have suffered sexual abuse, as well as young people and adults experiencing stress, anxiety, trauma, panic attacks, depression and low self esteem. We may have issues and patterns of behaviour from the past that we are ready to leave behind. I offer a safe, confidential therapeutic space to be heard and feel safe. In some cases I work in the here and now, in others I believe in order to understand and find our inner resources to change present behaviour we need to delve into our past.

My name is Talya. At the heart of how I work is the belief that everyone's choices and experiences are understandable if we give the time and attention to understanding them. When we are supported it becomes more possible to gain insight into the ways we feel limited, to acknowledge and release the feelings that can keep us stuck and to find new ways of being. Therapy can provide a chance to heal from the hurts that accumulate within us and help us find the resources to meet life fully. Through our time together, you may find that new ways of relating to yourself and the world around you become possible.

I work with adults and young people and offer both short and long term therapy. Sometimes life’s challenges may feel overwhelming, emotionally exhausting or relentless and we may seek professional support to help us find our way through. Anxiety, depression, feeling lost, lonely, confused or traumatised are just some of the many issues people bring. Whilst our personal stories and the reasons for our distress are ultimately as unique as we are, I have found that clients of all ages share a common goal; the desire to gain new perspectives and deeper understandings of themselves and to explore the possibilities and means of change.

If you’re struggling or finding things difficult, you’re not alone. Maybe you feel stuck, confused or overwhelmed. Maybe you feel lost, alone or disconnected from life, yourself or the people around you. Maybe you lack purpose or meaning in your life. Maybe you don't really know what the problem is but would like some support. I am here to listen, support and encourage you as you explore the issues you face, help you understand yourself better and see things more clearly. I can help you work through difficult thoughts and feelings, and find ways to manage them so they have less impact on your life and wellbeing.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Totnes?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Totnes specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
