I offer counselling and psychotherapy, working in Exeter.
I believe everyone can find life overwhelming at times and as a professional I provide a safe and confidential space in which to explore what is difficult for you in a non-judgemental, compassionate and kind way, so that together we can start to make sense of your feelings and concerns at your own pace. Working together, this process may open up opportunities for growth and change, it may help you discover new options and decide what changes you wish to make, and support in coping with those that can’t be changed.
There are many reasons why people seek counselling or psychotherapy, everyone is unique, however, commonly people who contact me are experiencing some feelings of anxiety or depression, or experiencing difficulties in relationships.
Whatever your reason for making contact, counselling & psychotherapy can help you understand and make sense of your experiences, with support, as you explore thoughts and feelings.
If you'd like to proceed, it’s important that you feel comfortable working with me, and that I am confident I can offer you the most appropriate support that you need. In our initial session we aim to explore both your needs and my professional capacity to meet them. You then have the space to reflect and decide if you wish to continue therapy with me by letting me know at a later date or either at the initial session – this is entirely up to you. There is no obligation for us to book in further sessions at this stage.
Training, qualifications & experience
Advanced Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy (4 years)
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.
