My name is Xanthe Ivory, and I am a fully qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor based in North Devon. I specialise in women’s health, particularly perinatal and maternal mental health, and can also support those dealing with life-debilitating conditions such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and low self-esteem.

As a private practice therapist, I work with adults from all backgrounds and walks of life. I take the time to form meaningful and trusting relationships, which I believe is the overarching key to successful counselling.

Using a wide range of therapeutic techniques, I will guide you to a place of clarity. A place where you feel confident in your ability to navigate life’s challenges and feel empowered to make changes in areas that are preventing you from reaching your full potential.


Xanthe is amazing therapist! I could feel bond after our first session. As working mum I've struggled to find therapist who wouldn't go with the script and I have ended couple previous therapies early. With Xanthe it looked differently straight away. She has tailored therapy the way that would work for me. I felt relief that finally I found therapist who is really helping me and listening me. In quite short period of time I could see the change for the better. I keep discovering more every session and it all helps me to find solutions in many situations that I've struggled before. I feel really thankful for the support I got from Xanthe and I feel lucky that I've found such a great therapist!

A safe space to talk

I am a friendly, calm, and – above all – compassionate therapist. I offer a safe and confidential space where you feel listened to and supported, so you can talk freely about whatever’s on your mind.

I use an integrative, person-centred approach - meaning that each session is tailored to meet your individual needs – and I offer in-person counselling sessions from my private therapy room in Barnstaple, as well as online via Zoom.
