I am Judy Friend and I run a counselling service on the River Exe in Mid Devon. I can offer a comfortable, safe, and private space where you can have time to talk and share your concerns.

It could be that you are considering therapy and have some understanding of what might be affecting you or recognise re-occurring patterns of behaviours and situations. Perhaps you are not sure, but just know that something is not quite right.

Talking to a trained therapist can certainly help. We shall work together to help you think about yourself and your life and, we shall aim to find clarity and understanding as well as relief.
