What I Can Offer You

The skills, experience and training I have allow me the flexibility to draw on a wide range of psychological theories and practice of therapeutic models.

One of the main therapeutic approaches I use is Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy alongside a Solution Focused approach. However I am experienced in using a number of other therapeutic techniques and models which I can draw upon to find a solution that works for you. Here is an explanation of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, otherwise known as CBT:

CBT is the most researched and validated form of psychotherapy - CBT works on the principle that the emotions we experience and the way we behave is determined by the way we think about and perceive situations.




CBT is not 'positive thinking'- it is about thinking realistically and logically in situations that you find highly distressing.

The aim of CBT is:

1. To relieve your symptoms and resolve the problem

2. To help you acquire new skills and coping strategies

3. Help you modify underlying assumptions to prevent relapse

Generally consultations would be face to face. However, I am able to offer consultations via Skype or telephone if you have difficulty attending appointments.


What happens when you contact me?

Many years of practice have proved to me that it is never too late to change. Of course, it has to be the right time for you.

Your initial assessment session is free without further obligation on your part. This gives you the opportunity to meet me and to ask any questions that you may have.

We can then decide how best to work together. Both daytime and evening appointments are available.

You can telephone or email me. We will start with a few questions about how you see your current situation and any difficulties you are experiencing.




All consultations are treated in the strictest confidence.

From this initial contact, we can decide if therapy could help you. Once we have had a discussion and I think I can assist you, we can arrange an appointment.

Once the assessment is complete, I will discuss my 'formulation' or understanding of your difficulties with you and recommend a way forward. Each course of therapy is based on individual needs, but typically takes between 6 - 15 sessions.

It is important for you to be in control of your journey but with appropriate help, support and guidance you can develop the skills and techniques to use at any time without the need for on-going therapy.

Contact Martin Tuckett R.M.N. Now!

If you have any questions about how I might be able to help, you are welcome to ask me!

Working with Martin at Exeter Private Counselling was a great experience and it helped me tremendously on my journey to healing. Martin is extremely sensitive and easy to talk to and has a fantastic intuition. I think that contacting Martin was the best thing I've ever done!



Tamsin 17 Feb 2021

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.



Adam 01 Feb 2021

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



Billy 09 Dec 2020

Very welcoming, made me feel at ease, was straight to the point and made it clear on how to improve my situation. Definitely recommend



Melinda 15 Sep 2020

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.



Thomas 14 Sep 2020

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



Tim 14 Aug 2020

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



Emma 22 Jun 2020

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.



Ivy 02 May 2020

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.



Emma 29 Feb 2020

I have just started with Martin but he is very professional, organised & I feel it has been a great choice.



Sonia 06 Sep 2019

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.



Lucille 16 May 2019

Martin has been passionate about helping me begin to overcome a 20 year anxiety condition. Sessions are well thought out and commuication is excellent. I have been making steady progress and feel genuinely thrilled with results so far.



Ella 24 Nov 2017

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.



Callum 09 Aug 2017

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.



Shoba 01 Aug 2017

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.
