Counselling in Exeter and Ashburton

Welcome to my website. My name is Thais Lloyd, but people call me Tess. I am a fully qualified counsellor with over 15 years' experience.


Through counselling, I offer you the opportunity of being truly heard. As I listen to you, my experiences and learning guide me on how I can best support you. I focus on what feels important to you at this moment, and I pay attention to what we are aware of. When I am with you, my aim is to be there 'with' and 'for' you, supporting your healing process.


If you haven't had counselling before, I would say that this experience is similar to being with someone who listens to you very well, and works alongside you to uncover and understand experiences that are painful or confusing. 

Being truly listened to will lead to change and growth. We can feel very alone when we are hurting, but I know from my work and from my own personal experience that talking to someone who is genuinely interested in us, respects and supports us, is very precious. It can help us feel supported, find ways forward, and consider new ways of being in the world, new ways of living life more fully.

It is a privilege for me to do the work that I do.
