Hello, I'm Cathie...
Welcome to my website. I hope it helps you to understand more about the therapy I offer, what you can expect of me and the way I work with clients. I offer counselling, psychotherapy and clinical supervision in Exeter, Honiton and East Devon surrounding areas.
I've built a respected track record over 18 years working with clients in a variety of therapeutic settings, including the NHS, social services, specialist counselling agencies, education and business - helping people get to know themselves better, and making it possible for them to make the lasting changes that they want.
The reasons people come into therapy are personal and varied. Often they just don't feel right in themselves and dont know why. Or they feel isolated and unable to talk to anyone about it. My years of working in this field has taught me that there are three general areas of unhappiness that bring most people into counselling or psychotherapy:
Within these broad areas, many clients also come to therapy particularly suffering from one or more of the following: depression, anxiety, or feeling just lost. They may have experienced trauma and abuse, or feel they cant stop the unhelpful cycle of addiction. Often the loss of a friend or relative, or of a lifelong career makes it suddenly impossible to cope. I work with all of these areas, and many more, and invite you to begin the process of talking through what may be bothering you, and to make the changes that you want.
I'm committed to offering therapy in a safe, confidential and non judgemental environment. The work is offered on an open-ended basis, or for an agreed period of time. My aim is simply to work with you in whatever way helps without undermining your own inner authority or dignity.
I also provide clinical and individual supervision to those working in the counselling, psychotherapy and other caring professions.
My practice is based in Whimple and central Exeter. Whimple is mid-way between Exeter and Honiton, easily accessible by car and train. Further directions can be found at Cost and contact.
