Therapist - Exeter

Exeter EX3
Sessions from £92.50



I offer 1 hour sessions during the day on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, either in person at my therapy room or online via Skype video call.

About me and my therapy practice

I’m professional, warm, honest, gentle and compassionate, and I'll always keep you safe by ensuring that we work at a pace that you feel comfortable with. I'll tailor my approach to suit you, giving you the best opportunity to achieve the results you want. I'm based at Dannys Court, Ebford, just an 8-minute walk from Darts Farm Shopping Village and a Stagecoach Route 57 bus stop, a 7-minute drive from the M5 (junction 30), or a 17-minute walk from Topsham Train Station, with ample free parking, and a toilet. My therapy room is light, private, spacious, and comfortable (there are clear maps and full directions on the CONTACT ME page of my website).

Your issue may be the result of difficult personal or life challenges, or you may simply not know why you feel the way you do, but you're struggling and need some help. My primary interest is with people rather than diagnoses, but I have a special interest in those who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, psychosis, personality and/or dissociative disorders. I have completed additional specialist training in all these areas as well as addiction and mental health first aid, and doing voluntary work for Mind in Taunton.

I offer a free initial telephone conversation, giving you as much time and space as you need to consider whether you’d like to come and meet me. Then, during your first session, I’ll listen to your concerns and we'll explore together what a good therapy outcome will be for you, how to achieve that, and how many sessions will work best for you. There's lots more information and a wealth of free resources on my website.

My fee for a single 1 hour session is £105 (payable by debit/credit card or bank transfer), but most of my clients choose to go for my discounted option at the end of their first session, block booking and paying for 6 sessions for £555 (equates to £92.50 per session).
