I am a professional, qualified, BACP registered counsellor practising in central Exeter, Devon. I work privately from premises on Gandy St, in the centre of town, with a wide spectrum of people with differing presenting issues. Warm and approachable, I have the utmost respect for my client's individuality and life circumstances.

I would be very happy to discuss your requirements should you be interested in coming along for counselling. Embarking on a course of counselling can be daunting and I aim to help you feel relaxed and confident that you make the choice that is right for you.
Please, whoever you decide to have counselling with, whether individual or agency, ensure that they are a member of a professional body such as the BACP or UKCP. Without membership of a self-regulating professional body then clients have no recourse should they feel that they are being treated unethically. At the moment, there is nothing to stop people practising as counsellors without this protection for their clients. I researched and wrote about this topic on this post about the regulation of counselling and psychotherapy.
