Looking at this page indicates to me you are feeling sad, lost, angry, confused, anxious, frightened, exhausted, or frustrated. And you are looking for some help and support to understand these emotions and behaviours. Do you want some guidance on how to make positive changes in and around your life? 

 

Right now, you are re-acting to these circumstances and this impacts on people who you love or come into contact with. Does this leave you believing no-one cares about you or can understand you, so what is the point?

Are you ready for these overwhelming emotions to be reduced or stopped completely?

 

Lets get you to a place where you can relax and chill, and take your foot off the accelerator. Are you ready to take control and challenge these unhealthy thoughts? Are you ready to be the best person that you can possibly be within the situation you find yourself in, day in and day out?

I want to show you a life where you can have some control and balance. A life which has equal balance between yourself, family, and friends. This includes connections at work, homelife, your neighbourhood and any social clubs which you may attend or manage.

Let me have one hour out of your week for you to experience some genuine personalised therapy. Counselling is not always about mental health, it is about life. A life which has become complicated, stressful and it consumes your every day thoughts.

You deserve to invest in yourself, improve your mental health and cultivate your relationships in life.

Don't lose connections just because at times you feel disconnected.

Together, we can bring change and take the necessary steps in order to move forward, not only for today but for everyday. Every successful day is an important day. Learn to trust the decisions you make, know these decisions are right for you and be open to believe, you CAN cope in any stressful situation. 

 

No-one knows you better than you know yourself. Embrace and hold yourself, and ask for help.

My working hours: Monday to Friday 10am -9pm: Saturday 12pm - 9pm: Sunday 10am - 5pm.

Individual Counselling £40, Couples Counselling £50. All sessions last for one hour, maximum session in one sitting is two hours. 

Sessions for Young Persons over the age of 10-17 years old, is £35 and each sessions last for 45 minutes. 

Paying for your session is the only way to confirm your booking with me. Until I receive your payment, your appointment is pencilled in against that availability and held for 36 hours only. Payment details are below.

For a greater peace of mind, I am fully insured and I have a clean Enhanced DBS Check. I hold certification in Level 2 Advanced Safeguarding for Adults.

About Two's-Talking Counselling Service

 

Two's-Talking is an established counselling service. It has been practicing in the United Kingdom for five years.

I have an office in Exeter at the Basepoint Business Centre, on the Marsh Barton Trading Estate, Yeoford Way. EX2 8LB.

The main driver for Two's-Talking, is for "any person(s) to have access to therapy, at a time when they need it most."

Having a positive space to think and talk changes the direction of your life, it silences those negative thoughts, and puts positive actions into place. You have the power and control to change your life. Nothing should stay still for long - it's unhealthy, feels yucky and it's unproductive.

Two’s-Talking is a professional service, one which is renowned for its confidentially and has a genuine warmth towards their clients.

 

Life is not black and white, it's mostly grey and we need to know how to negotiate, compromise and be flexible with ourselves and with others around us on a daily basis. Life can be stripped back and be this simple, it's a choice you make.

I have dedicated my life to Mental Health and the Social Care Sector for over 30 years. I have overcome and survived my own addiction with alcohol in my younger years, and a dependency to prescription medication in my later years for chronic pain. During my life I have had periods where life was hard and I experienced what it's like to struggle and go without food to pay the bills. But I have worked incredibly hard to be where I am today and where I need to be tomorrow. Every day is a new day, and having compassion and empathy for myself allows me to be the change I want to see in the world for tomorrow and every day.

 

The strength and reflection I gain from personal growth, I share with others, and I am proud to be the person and most importantly, the therapist who I am today.

 

My expectations are real and they're achievable. I need self strokes to feel like I'm winning and this is the message and the style of my therapy. I want you to see at some point during the day you are winning and smashing down those barriers in your life. You are good enough, and being "good enough" is all you need to be. 

 

I am passionate about being true to myself and I enjoy being a strong advocate for adults and children who are at most risk in todays society. I include everyone - my service is accepting, genuine and kind. I do not hide behind books and theories. I have learnt a lot through a life of pain and hardship. Once these were my darkened shadows and held me to ransom for years. I practice what I preach and I am very real. I want to imprint on your life, and I want you to hear my voice, long after our sessions have ended.   

I strive to work from my heart and I will often work above and beyond. This has been shown by the generous feedback from past and present clients on Yell.com and these comments have been transferred over to my website.

 

If you are looking for a therapist who you can understand, Two's-Talking Counselling Service is for you. I will support you with your issues linked and not limited to life, abuse, depression, anxiety, bereavement, anger, addiction, stress, relationships, mental health, bullying, couple's therapy and co-parenting. 

I provide face to face counselling, online counselling, and a telephone service. This service can be for short term or long term therapy. You can be local or based anywhere in the UK. Please don't limit yourself by the miles around you.

 

The car park is free for the first hour and then you must pay for parking. There is a bus service from the city centre (Bus B) which stops up the road from the BasePoint Business Centre.

 

Don't let life drag you down, step away from the edge and live a life that's worth living.
