Counselling, Psychotherapy and Supervision in East Devon

Welcome to Otter Counselling. Please have a look around and let me know if I can help you further. 




Life in today's world can be challenging: job and money worries, family and relationship issues, health concerns, dealing with transitions, these can all lead to complex feelings and worries. It's normal to face times in life when it can seem really difficult to make sense of where you find yourself and to make decisions about how to go forwards. Often it can seem as if there is no one you can talk to. 

 At times like this it can be useful to seek support from a qualified counsellor; someone who isn't directly involved, who really listens without judging or telling you what to do.

My name is Sara Drew and I am a therapeutic counsellor offering a friendly and down-to-earth service for clients in Exeter and East Devon. My priority is to offer a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment to help you share your thoughts and emotions, as well as looking at patterns of relating which may be unhelpful.

I work with both adults from 18-80+ on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully. I also offer supervision to therapists and other helping professionals.


My experience as a counsellor has helped clients with issues which include:

Stress, Abuse, Self-Esteem, Depression,

Sexuality, Bullying, Domestic Abuse, Anxiety,

Trauma, Relationships, Bereavement, Addiction,

Identity, Mental Health, Eating and Weight issues,

Anger and Rage, Redundancy, Life Transitions

I see clients in Honiton (Tues inc evening) and Ottery St Mary (Weds &Thurs). Both places are easily accessible by car from M5 junction 29 (Honiton Road) and accessible via the A30 and A35. Visiting clients come from Torquay, Exeter, Dorset, Somerset and the local area.

You are welcome to call or e-mail me with any questions or to make an appointment.

Personal Approach
Whatever adversity we face, I believe we all have the capacity to change and grow; to become more fully human. We may be shaped by our history and by the environment we live in, and yet we are not finally trapped by these things - we can live our lives in a different way, by becoming more fully conscious of our patterns and choices. This allows us to make changes in our lives, to process our past hurts and traumas - and to live a life illuminated by our past but not dictated or directed by it. We can in short become more free. These things take effort and committing to therapy is a significant life choice in itself. I would be glad to accompany you on your journey of discovery and healing.

Why Otter Counselling? I have chosen the name because I live by the river Otter in East Devon and also because the Otter symbolises playful and compassionate, caring qualities -which are aspects that we all - men and women, young and not so young - can lose sight of as we go about our busy lives studying, working, building homes, careers and families. I like to keep the Otter and her playfulness and care for her young ones in mind as I go about my work.
