How counselling can help
If you would like to talk things over in a safe space, I can be there for you, listening without judgement and supporting you as you explore your feelings and the experiences that are affecting you. I work in an integrative way, adapting my approach to meet your needs. I’ll invite you to describe your experiences and to be curious about your thoughts and feelings.
Becoming more aware of the ways in which we think, feel and act is almost always liberating. Opening up about our thoughts and feelings can help us to feel more fulfilled, happy and hopeful in ourselves and in our relationships.
Looking after your interests
I work to the standards of the National Counselling Society's ethical code. This means that I work closely with other professionals to safeguard your interests.

Where to find me
I work from rooms in Studio 1 in the centre of Exeter. There is a website link for Studio 1 attached to this profile which will give you some idea of what to expect and how to get there. If you decide that you would like to meet up, we can arrange the first meeting and go from there. I will meet you upstairs in (or outside) Studio 1 and then show you into one of the rooms. These are all comfortable and well-suited for the purposes of counselling.
What to expect in the first session
In the first meeting, we will create a mutual contract (mainly to confirm that we understand and agree about important issues like confidentiality) and I will give you an opportunity to think about setting personal, autonomous goals for the counselling process. Hopefully, in this first meeting, you will start to feel safe in the room and able to trust me so that you can begin to explore your feelings and the experiences that are affecting you.
During this first one-hour session, we can also decide when and how often we want to meet. We will review your personal goals in the follow-up sessions.
It is important that you feel fully involved in the therapeutic process. You will always be in a position to ask questions and to say what you think about the way we work together.
