Holly Carter (MA) MBACP

About me

I have a Masters Degree in Relationship Therapy, and am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I work as a counsellor with individuals, couples and families, and I also work as a clinical supervisor, and as a trainer. Alongside my private practice I have worked for Relate for the last ten years.

I work from tranquil rooms in central Exeter, and can be available for evening and weekend appointments.

Counselling and psychotherapy can offer a huge amount of support to an individual, or a couple, at any time when life has become unexpectedly challenging or complicated. Equally, it can simply provide a good space to explore and understand one's relationship with oneself and with those important people around us.

If you think that I might be useful to you, please do get in touch by email or telephone.  I will generally be able to respond within a few hours, and will endeavour to arrange a first meeting within days if required.  I offer a discounted rate for a first meeting, which serves as a good opportunity to establish if and how I might be helpful, and, most importantly, whether I am someone with whom you feel comfortable talking.

My training has embraced both a psychodynamic and a systemic approach, and I am very happy to discuss the ‘theory’ and the ‘methodology’ underpinning my work with any of my clients.

Prior to re-training in this field I worked for many years in London as a barrister, practising family law, and I have also worked as a mediator.
