Counselling in Exeter, Brian Dennis MBACP (Accred.)


As a counsellor in Exeter, Devon, I work with people who wish to improve their situations and personal feelings. They may also be troubled by a combination or variety of issues, which they would like to resolve or improve.


Counselling allows and encourages positivity and well-being to evolve from situations which may now appear negative, or really fairly dismal.


There may be aspects of your life that you wish to change and improve - if so, congratulations for making this important decision to do something about it.


A essential principal of counselling is that clients can discuss their issues in a confidential, empathetic surrounding, without being judged or discounted for having their own feelings or issues.


Counselling Exeter clients come to resolve and improve issues, which may include:


  • lack of self-esteem.
  • anger, or a feeling that anger is building in yourself and is negatively affecting your lifestyle and your relationships.
  • frustration.
  • depression.
  • problems from a change of lifestyle and emotions resulting from relationship breakup, redundancy, etc.
  • stress, related to work or personal issues.
  • a general feeling of being miserable, or not living life as you would wish and expect.
  • a lack of positivity in your life.
  • addictions.
  • and many more.



Focussing on what you want in the future normally forms a basis of my counselling. That may result from a feeling that your present situation is not the one you want. As the future is often influenced by the past, it is often important to understand past events and situations, which may provide background or reasons for current problems. With that understanding those issues can often be worked on and improved.


I can also work with clients who specifically wish to improve their outlook on the future, without recounting or "delving" into the past. The past cannot be changed, however much it is discussed and looked at. The past can be thought of in a different way, it cannot be changed. Understanding and accepting that is often a way of "moving on" with a future, instead of being stuck in resolving the past.


Understanding your feelings is beneficial. Most people have feelings that they do not fully understand. Counselling can help people to understand their own feelings, as well as realising why other people are expressing their own feelings and emotions. Often, feelings have roots in client's previous experiences or background. Those feelings were learnt in the past, under past circumstances. Often the present circumstances are very different, so the feelings should also be different - if you want them to be.


I work in an integrated counselling method. My belief is that each person is their own individual, who inherently tries to improve their well-being in their own way. I use a range of counselling methods as appropriate to the counselling process, including person centered counselling, transactional analysis, NLP, positive therapy, and other methods to bring a balanced and comfortable positive experience for my clients.


Each person has their own issues, problems, hopes, fears - and a lot more. I respect those differences and work with them.
