Deborah Everett MBACP, BA(Hons) Integrative Counselling,
Welcome to my listing.
When life brings you situations that you find difficult or overwhelming, you do not have to struggle alone. Whatever you are going through, talking to someone can help you to feel supported and held, as you navigate your way through challenging times or situations.
As an Integrative therapist, I offer a warm and compassionate, confidential space for you to bring any issues which may be troubling you, and my aim is to support you in making sense of your situation, or your life, and to help you find a sense of inner well-being. My approach is empathic and non-judgmental, and I see each client as a unique person with individual needs. It is in building a supportive and trusting relationship, where you feel listened to, that you can gain deeper understanding and self-awareness. In supporting you with whatever area of your life you are finding difficult, we can work together to help you discover inner resources from which the changes you desire can occur.
I am a fully qualified counselling therapist, and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework promoting good practice, and I continually update and improve my work through regular further training and supervision. As well as my counselling qualifications and experience, I bring my experience and previous study in the body-mind relationship, through previous training in Shiatsu and Craniosacral therapy.
I work in Exeter city centre and in Somerset, Between Glastonbury and Bridgwater.
Choosing a counsellor can be daunting, so to help you to take that first step, I offer an initial 15 minute telephone session, in which we can explore the possibility of working together.
I work with young people and adults from 18 years onwards.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
