5 Star Review
"I took my teenage daughter to Martin due to emotional difficulties in the hope that he could help her as her behaviour was affecting the rest of the family , her own mental well being and attitude to school. We had weekly sessions for about 7 weeks and during that time she was taught how to overcome her anxieties and use tools to dispel negative thoughts.

Martin was perfect for me. Understood everything that was being said and adjusted the sessions to my needs. I struggled to open up but Martin helped me to talk and is a great listener. Would suggest anybody to use Martin if struggling. I’m now thanks to Martin’s help back to being myself again and couldn’t thank you enough Martin. Was a pleasure and couldn’t be more thankful.

I couldn’t fault Martin and his work and techniques! His many years of experience definitely shone through and he made me feel very comfortable and at ease when opening up about past trauma and he was very friendly, non- judgemental, kind and funny as well as being professional and straight to the point (which is what I definitely needed. ) I truly believe that finding Martin in May was meant to be and I feel in a much better place now because of our work we did together! I will miss our weekly catchups and I recommend him to anyone who needs to feel like the sunshine that they once used to feel! More...

Martin has been a great help to me over the last few months - I have found the combination of CBT and talking therapy really helpful and he has given me straightforward advice on ways to overcome anxiety and low self esteem.

I cannot talk more highly of this man, he is truly one of a kind, he has give me so many tools to be able to cope with my personal issues as well as confidence and to be able to love myself again, If you are looking for a counsellor to really help you without beating around the bush look no further, he is a true gentleman.
Thank you Martin for making me the guy I am today

I took my teenage daughter to Martin due to emotional difficulties in the hope that he could help her as her behaviour was affecting the rest of the family , her own mental well being and attitude to school. We had weekly sessions for about 7 weeks and during that time she was taught how to overcome her anxieties and use tools to dispel negative thoughts. Martin was patient, funny and kind but also very honest and kitty responded very well. As the weeks went on she felt more controlled and used Martin’s techniques to balance her emotions. I would highly recommend Exeter Private Counselling to anyone and even felt I had benefitted from being present in the sessions as Martin’s advice was easily slotted in to my own life to help me feel better about myself and the chaos of family life. Kitty is so grateful to Martin for turning her life around. She is a rounded, happy teenager now and looks back on the days before counselling as unbelievable. She says that everyone’s lives would be better if they had some sessions with Martin. Forever grateful. More...

I had been through various different counselling methods (hypnotherapy, psychotherapy, QEC, TRE, men's groups etc) but none had REALLY helped me. I had been through a traumatic couple of years and it was all coming to a head and I was struggling to see any joy ahead of me. A friend recommended Martin and even after our first session I could feel my thought patterns becoming clearer and more positive. He helped me to help myself out of a very dark and destructive way of thinking and I can't thank him enough!
Martin is kind, funny, and as he says 'doesn't talk B#$%£@&T! He allows you to explore your own emotions and always seems to know the right question to ask or the right way of concluding.
Highly recommended, thank you, Martin

I have found working with Martin so much help. No matter what mood or situation I’m in he alway manages to steer me back on the right path. And give me the right tools to help myself.
It has not been easy in fact much harder than I thought it would be, but with Martins help and guidance I am starting to believe that in time I can get back too where I want to be. Tim

Martin is a good find. He has a wealth of experience, is incredibly adept at understanding how people work, how history impacts on today and facilitating the journey of taking back control of your own happiness. If you are considering counselling or a CBT course I highly recommend Exeter Private Counselling. More...

Martin Tuckett provided a series of excellent counselling sessions which directly, specifically, progressively, and successfully helped me reframe all aspects of a traumatic incident. He skilfully and rapidly built rapport, treating me as an individual and tailoring the sessions to be especially effective for me. The kindness and respect Martin embodied made it a very safe space to address sensitive issues. I am entirely confident in his professional and personal integrity and found him to be both pleasant company and an effective counsellor who helped guide me through a significant and beneficial psychological healing. I have no doubt that Martin acted in my best interest, as his goal from the outset was to become unnecessary to my mental well-being. "Private" may be in his business's title, but his long-standing NHS ethos is very much present. More...

As soon as I contacted Martin I had a sense he was compassionate, sincere and very experienced. I wasn't disappointed. He helped me with anxiety and a bereavement I had struggled with for five years. Throughout he was patient and gave me the tools and space to figure a lot out for myself. The feeling in hindsight that he knew all along what conclusions I would draw was awe-inspiring and powerful therapy. I couldn't be more pleased and grateful that I went to him. More...

I have had counselling on and off since I was a teenager and nothing compares to the quality I received from Martin. He completely personalised the process to suit me. I felt he really cared about my mental health, so much so, I was welcome to ring him at any point if I needed to. Martin gave me lots of helpful materials to do at home as well as running group sessions. He helped me rid my depression and anxiety from all angles. More...

It's hard work, of course. But he really understands me and fills the sessions with moments of humour and conversation. He actually believed that the therapy works and is able to make me believe it to and now I feel about 100X better than I ever thought I could.

Outstanding creative challenging work to unlock some very entrenched issues. I was shown respect but clarity about the work I needed to do too. I was shown the tools and encouraged to use them to see myself walk free from the positions that have caused me so much pain all my life. More...

Thank you, it has been a privilege working with you.

Q&As

Enabling people to regain control over their life and emotions.
Giving people strategies to deal with problems without the need for ongoing "Therapy"
Working with people in a very privilege, trusting relationship.

I very much missed the clinical work when I left the N.H.S.

I have been told I am very honest, straight, direct but compassionate, respectful and understanding.
