7+ Years Post-Accreditation Experience

Hi. I'm Tricia. I'm an accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist - I assist individuals with their psychological health. I hold private sector experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist. My focus involves abuse, relationship problems and self esteem, and the particular problems encountered by men, transgender people and women.

What to Expect

A preliminary assessment appointment enables you to discover if you feel comfortable with me, share what concerns you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and assess if therapy could assist you. Please use a contact option on the right to book a preliminary assessment session in Cullompton.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide which issue concerning your early years or adult life you discuss. The aim of counselling is to enable you to talk about a problem and find a way forward which is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy focuses on the unconscious causes of the problems you encounter. It facilitates you in being aware of parts of your internal dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy aims to enhance your self-comprehension to give you choices.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests psychodynamic therapy for depression.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the problems you face. It explores your thoughts, feelings and relevant moments in your history. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or find appropriate ways of coping.

Thoughts on Mental Health

If you've been emotionally abused, you may feel confused by an experience of being undermined and then made to feel special by the abuser. There may be aspects of subtle, or not so subtle, control: having to say where you have been and with whom, not having full access to money, needing permission to do something new, access to friends and family being restricted or forbidden. At work or while studying, the abuse could take the form of bullying. You may be shunned, ridiculed, humiliated, then made to feel it is your own sensitivity that is to blame. Very often there is no obvious evidence of abuse and therefore it is more difficult to counter. You may feel very isolated and vulnerable, questioning all of your judgements and decisions, which can lead to debilitating anxiety. It can be damaging to your well-being and takes enormous courage to find help.

Psychodynamic therapy links what is happening to you now with events and relationships from your early years, finding patterns that can be understood. Psychodynamic work is concerned with making unconscious aspects of your behaviour, thoughts, feelings, conscious. The relationship between you and your therapist is an important part of the work, so a psychodynamic therapist will be alert to the client/therapist relationship. This can help the therapist understand the unconscious processes that you are struggling against.
