Robin Collins MBACP (Accred)
25 Gandy Street
I am an experienced counsellor and lecturer in counselling based in Exeter. I work with individuals, couples and family relationships, helping to resolve conflict and emotional issues. I help bring freedom from anxiety and stress, in a friendly, safe and welcoming setting.
I provide an affordable and professional counselling service based on mindfulness and authenticity. You are warmly invited for a free initial session, and we can then decide together if counselling is the best way forward.
I appreciate and honour that each new client brings their unique life experience; words such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, anxiety and addiction are blanket terms for what in each case is a very real and suffering person. I therefore promise to provide a safe space in which to explore and resolve your deepest feelings, fears and needs.
Counselling sessions are usually for one hour and once weekly, but I endeavour to be flexible to the needs of my clients. I offer individual and couples counselling and work particularly with relationship issues.
I work closely with a team of experienced counsellors, if I cannot help directly, I will be pleased to refer you (without charge) to someone who can.
I am a qualified teacher and registered lecturer. I teach counselling at the Iron Mill Institute and hold workshops in mindfulness and meditation.
