Sometimes all we know is that we need some extra help and support...

Hello and a warm welcome...

My name is Amanda Farrington and I am fully qualified and accredited UKCP registered psychotherapist in Exeter, Sidmouth and London with thirteen years clinical experience, both in private practice and within the NHS; during which I have helped many clients feel better about themselves and to lead happier and more functional lives.

Counselling and psychotherapy really can make a difference....

Relationship problems, stress/anxiety and depression are three of the main issues why people seek help. Fortunately, for the majority of us these do not occur very often and are manageable. However, sometimes these difficult feeling, or life problems, can be ongoing and cause unpleasant physical symptoms and alot of distress that can really affect your life.

The publicity that has surrounded the actions of Jimmy Saville and Rolf Harris, have also impacted people who have experienced abuse in their childhoods. And some of you may find that it is much more difficult to manage how you feel without talking to someone and coming to terms with how you feel.

In taking a look at patterns of behaviour that may be affecting you, from the past or present, it will assist you in making more informed choices, and help you thrive...making a better present and future possible. Just give me a call to ....

Create a life that feels good on the inside.... Not just one that looks good on the outside......

How can therapy help....?

To talk things through in a safe and confidential environment with a counsellor or psychotherapist can be really beneficial, and very different to talking to friends or family. We can work together to make sense of how you are feeling which may be from past or present experiences. Therapy is an important step to managing your life better and working towards living your life the way you want to, and to enjoy it in a more fulfilling way with a better relationship with yourself and others. If you want your life to change, you don't have to do this on your own any more. Often the issues brought to therapy are deeply sensitive and to develop a trusting relationship with someone you feel comfortable with is of paramount importance. I am here to work with you, to hear your story and support you during this time.

You might want to see me for all sorts of reasons. I have already mentioned the major ones, these are some more of the areas you may wish to explore which I can help you with:

  • Relationships, work/life issues, including betrayal/ stress
  • Depression and/or difficult feelings
  • Panic Attacks/anxiety
  • Sexual problems
  • Abuse
  • Bereavement or loss
  • Isolation/lack of meaning direction
  • Addiction
  • Anger
  • An experience that has left you with traumatic shock - this can result in feeling emotionally numb, flashbacks, nightmares and a feeling of being 'on guard'
  • Or, you may be feeling as if your self esteem is very low and/or you simply feel troubled (even though on the surface life around you is good), or stuck and can't put your finger on why.

    Sometimes your emotional reactions can be accompanied by other symptoms, and ones physical health can often suffer through the resulting anxiety and stress. This may result in, for example:- muscle aches and pains, diarrhoea, irregular heartbeats, headaches, feelings of panic and fear, drinking or using drugs (including painkillers), hoarding or shopping too much. With the advent of the internet and mobile phones, avenues such as porn or sex, can be accessed more readily and can become addictive.. Or, on the other side of the coin, you may have complex feelings as a spouse or partner who is struggling to come to terms with this sort of betrayal, this emotional pain can also result in bodily symptoms.

    Just call me for a chat - in making sure you find a therapist that you gel with - a personal fit....more than anything else, can create a good outcome and be transformative in your life.

    I am committed to providing psychotherapy in Exeter, Sidmouth and London in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment, working to the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and Bath Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy recognised Code of Ethics.
