Pella Williams-Duff Counsellor & Psychotherapist Reg. Accredited MBACP, BPC
Due to the current situation with Covid-19, I am currently offering therapy via Zoom or phone. This also applies to supervision.
Do you feel down, anxious, stuck, dissatisfied, or lost? Are you struggling in a relationship or to move on from past events? Having a trained professional who will listen and understand without judgement can help.
What I can offer you is a safe, confidential space to help you explore whatever it is that has brought you to this point. My work is underpinned by my psychodynamic training which means thinking and looking at how past events may be affecting your current situation. Gaining deeper understanding of this can help you to make different choices or think about things differently.
Asking for help and finding the right counsellor or psychotherapist for you can be a daunting prospect so I offer a free initial 15 minute telephone consultation to assess whether what I offer is right for you and to ensure we are comfortable working together. It is also a time for you to ask any questions you may have.
Once we have agreed to continue, we will meet once weekly at the same time and day for 50 minutes.
I have consulting rooms in two locations: Tilshead near Stonehenge and Planks Farm, Lydeway near Devizes.
I am easily accessible from Salisbury, Warminster, Amesbury, Durrington, Andover, Upavon, Pewsey, Marlborough, Devizes, and villages on the Salisbury Plain.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
