Tina Hill-Art. RegMBACP. Counselling - Psychotherapy - Supervision - Training.
I work with individuals, couples and other relationship models in Exeter, and can see supervisees in Shaldon and Exeter.
I offer you a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to explore whatever is troubling you or holding you back from leading a fuller life. I aim to support you within a collaborative relationship to help you find the solutions you seek to help you move forward.
My counselling/psychotherapy style is humanistic, very much led by you at your pace, and based on an Integrative Model: Simply put, this means I am trained in several compatible theories that I can draw from to create an approach that suits you and your individual situation. (I'm not a great believer in a 'one size fits all' approach!)
As a Registered Member of the BACP, I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
You can find out more about me by visiting my website, however, the best way to find out if we can work together, is to take advantage of my reduced fee introductory session, or call me for an informal chat.
I also offer supervision to counsellors, both qualified and trainees, in one to one or group settings. I also offer occasional /one off consultation sessions to those working with LGBT+ /questioning clients where current supervision provision lacks the relevant experience. Please ask for details.

In addition to counselling and psychotherapy, I coordinate a counselling service for a local charity that supports clients who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual or Transgender (LGBT+), and those questioning their sexual orientation or gender identity, and their families, and I deliver group supervision sessions to volunteer counsellors working within a a local carer's support service.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I work in an affirmative way with people who lead an alternative lifestyle. ( ie Polyamory, BDSM, Kink etc) and am listed on the KAP directory
My fees are £50 per 60 minute session, £70 for couples for a 90 minute session - with some concession appointments available (for those on low income or counselling students).
It is important that we feel comfortable with each other for therapy to be most effective, so I offer a 30 minute introductory session at just £20 ( £30 for couples /relationship multiples). I am also happy to have an informal initial conversation by telephone.
I offer short or long term counselling depending on your needs. This can be discussed at the first session, which is an opportunity for us to see if we are happy to work together, and for you to ask any questions.
