“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself as I am, then I change”

Carl Rogers

Safe, confidential, professional counselling

Hello and welcome

There are many reasons why you may be seeking a listening ear right now.

Whatever emotional difficulties are showing up in your life I will provide you with a warm, compassionate, safe and confidential space to explore with you whatever challenges you bring, to guide you to new understanding.

I consider you to be the expert of your own experience and the therapeutic relationship key to affecting change. Reflecting back what I hear you share, can widen the field of your awareness and emerging insights. As an integrative counsellor I draw on numerous approaches. I am particularly influenced by existential therapy – a humane approach to the wider context of life situations; systems therapy – which acknowledges the many, often conflicting, parts of a person and mindfulness – a compassionate encouragement to connect with all of who you are. I aim to gently challenge where appropriate and guide you towards the change you seek.

I offer a free 20-minute video call to discuss what brings you to counselling and to find out if we would work well together.

One hour face to face sessions take place in a warm, light and comfortable room in Exeter, a 10-minute walk from the Cathedral. Online sessions on request.
