About

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.
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. You can find out more about the way I work on my website (see link under photo).
I offer a free initial discussion over Zoom or telephone, so that you can tell me a little bit about what is troubling you, and we can decide if we are a good 'fit' before deciding to work together. I encourage you to get in touch, so that you can begin your journey towards recovery and wholeness.
