Counselling, Psychotherapy and Nature Connection - Exeter, East Devon and everywhere online.
Offering a warm welcome and my full attention to build trust, create safety and find resilience. Reduced rate/non-fee appointments for NHS and key workers.
We are all in this together. It’s so big because it’s happening all at once, everywhere.
It’s normal to feel fear, overwhelm and disconnect. It can be hard to take a breath and get your feet back on the ground and do what needs to be done yet that resource is in you. Having someone to talk to and share you fears with can be really helpful right now, so you don’t have to burden your loved ones. Ultimately this is asking us all to face the limitations of human life and the fact that we die and in this culture that is almost forbidden. I’m willing to look there with you. Speak to me about low and no cost sessions for NHS and key workers.

I describe myself as a relational, integrating therapist. The relational part means that I place emphasis on building a relationship with my client that enables them to feel free to say things they may not have been able to before and to experiment with different ways of being in a safe and supportive atmosphere. It means we can be real with each other and drop ways of relating that are inauthentic. The integrating part means that I work with elements from different therapeutic traditions using the relationship as a frame of reference. I am drawn by the healing power of nature and am learning to see myself as part of the natural world and not separate from it. I bring current ecological and environmental issues into my work: sometimes grief and anxiety are not private issues but are a response to the state of our world. We can meet and work indoors or in the beautiful East Devon countryside where we can explore nature as a mirror for your life.
Why Otter Counselling? I have chosen the name because I live by the river Otter in East Devon and also because the Otter symbolises playful and feminine qualities -which are aspects that we all - men and women, young and not so young - can lose sight of as we go about our busy lives studying, working, building homes, careers and families. I like to keep the Otter and her playfulness and care for her young ones in mind as I go about my work.
