I aim to provide a warm, safe and non-judgemental space where you can explore your feelings, difficulties and expectations. I charge a reduced fee for the first session,lower fees for teenagers and some concessions are available. Evening counselling available.
You may be facing challenges in your life, be feeling overwhelmed or be affected by issues from your past which you feel you need to work through. Alternatively you may have the sense that life isn’t quite right and be looking for greater meaning or purpose.
I work in an integrative humanistic way which means that I recognise that everyone’s experience is unique and that I tailor my approach to meet your individual needs,helping you to explore your feelings and issues. Through this exploration counselling can enable you to take time out and gain a fresh perspective on your life. I hope that by reflecting on your experience you will gain greater understanding of yourself, be able to access your inner resources and feel empowered to make your own choices and find a way forward.
I can offer both short and long term therapy, and I am able to offer counselling both to adults and to young people. My practice is based in therapy centres in Swindon and in Chippenham but I am also able to see teenaged clients (up to 18 years old) at my home which is also in Chippenham.
