Sometimes it helps to be listened to, sometimes it is important to understand why things are the way they are. You may feel \'stuck\' and not know how to deal with a difficult issue. It could be that you are having difficulties with relationships with other people. You may have suffered a loss that you can\'t adjust to. Or, you may be unhappy for no apparent reason.
Low-self esteem, relationship issues, bullying, abusive relationships, anger, anxiety - these are the most frequent types of issues I encounter in my work.
Listening is a fundamental part of counselling and psychotherapy, and I will listen to you; actively listen, giving feedback from time to time, guiding you to explore the problem you bring, allowing you to come to a new understanding of what is happening to you and why. There will be no rush, you can go at your own pace.
Counselling and psychotherapy offer the opportunity to explore your past experiences and how they may be impacting on how your life is now. It may be that there is a repeating pattern of experience that has its roots in your early years. Whatever is back there can\'t be taken away, but some light might be shone on it and some understanding be found, that helps you to live in an easier way.
I won\'t offer you advice but I will help you to make decisions or discover what is underneath what is happening to you for yourself.
I offer long and short term counselling for individual adults, adolescents and children in Cullompton and in Exeter, Devon.
