Have you been struggling with thoughts or feelings that you are finding difficult to navigate alone? Feeling low, anxious or unsure of what to do next? I believe that we all experience moments in life where some time to pause and reflect can be helpful. It can be difficult to do that alone! I will work alongside you in exploring and understanding your current situation to help you make positive changes and take back control. I work with adults and young people and feel privileged when a client makes the courageous step to begin sharing a part of their story with me.

You might be concerned about your child for a number of reasons. The stress of life, Depression Anxiety Trauma or behavoural issues are all signs that something is needing attention. Parents need to understand their children and to respond in ways that might be more effective. Giving children space to express and communicate from their own perspective can also be of help. I have many years experience of working in the NHS in CAMHS and want to be able to reach those who are not offered a service or where the wait is very long.

Maybe the reason you are here today is because you are experiencing feelings that you would rather not continue to carry alone. My practice is called ‘Accanto’ and I have built my service around this name, which translated means ‘next to or beside,’ and quite simply that is exactly where I will be for you. I do have an A-Z of what I cover but actually this is about YOU feeling that you can bring anything you need into the safe and accepting space that I offer. Counselling is initially about feeling better about yourself, learning to love your real self so that you can then invite love and acceptance from others.

I am a relaxed, friendly and fully qualified integrative counsellor, working from my private practice in Paignton, Devon. I understand the importance of a comfortable, safe space for clients to share and I can draw on my extensive integrative training to tailor the sessions to meet your needs. Whilst the present moment is key to change, I understand how the past can impact the present, as can concerns about the future. It can be hard to learn, but it is often harder to unlearn.

I'm an integrative counsellor, which means that I don't believe there is a one size fits all approach when it comes to therapy. So whether you prefer structured CBT or to express yourself through the arts I will tailor therapy according to your needs. I have years of experience working with both women and young people, having worked for respected charities like Women's Aid (as a Domestic abuse specialist) and Off the Record. I have a good understanding of the issues that specifically effect these groups, and I feel passionate about enabling both to have their voices heard.

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.

It can be hard to decide which therapist to choose, amongst so many qualified and experienced professionals. I am pleased to say that the majority of my work comes from personal recommendations and some of my clients will return for further sessions when a need arises. I see every person I work with as an individual and our work is tailored to reflect this.

Hi there, if you have found your way here then perhaps you aren't quite feeling yourself, maybe you feel a bit lost, like life is against you or like you can't cope. It can feel daunting to start talking about how you are feeling, particularly if no one has asked you before. Maybe you think your feelings don't matter, they do matter here. We can start to gently explore these feelings together so that you can feel better about yourself, less anxious and more grounded in your life. I understand that breaking the silence can be very difficult; I am here to listen and we will work at a pace set by you.

Not accepting new clients
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 have worked in the NHS for over 20 years and I realise that therapy can be a new and unusual approach for people. I often work with folk who are finding things hard, and need a neutral form of support. I can offer direct support, teaching and practice in cognitive and behavioural techniques, or relaxation and mindfulness ideas to help. The goals that a person wants to work towards might be crystal clear to them, or they might refine these as we work together.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in TQ1 are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in TQ1 then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in TQ1, or Child Psychologists in TQ1.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like TQ1 psychologists specialising in EMDR.


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 TQ1 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.
