The Full Story

"Every journey starts with a single step"


I  offer effective counselling in Chippenham and work with a variety of issues ranging from anxiety and depression, stress and loss of purpose through to bereavement and trauma.  Further details can be found here.

Going to counselling, especially for the first time, can be a daunting experience but its also a courageous first step in investing in yourself and your future. So I will do all that I can to help ease the experience for you by offering a warm welcome and a confidential place where I will listen, encourage and support you.


I also recognise that it can take time to feel able to trust someone enough to share your thoughts and feelings with them, for fear of judgement or rejection. Therefore, it is your decision as to what you choose to discuss and at a time when you feel ready to.

What happens now?

Finding the right therapist for you is such an important factor in the process of emotional and psychological healing. So our first session will be a chance to see if we are a "good fit" as well as exploring what you would like to get from counselling. This also offers you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have.

The session will last for 1 hour after which we can arrange to continue working together or you may prefer to go home to take more time to decide.  Either option is OK.

People turn to counselling for many reasons.

Perhaps some of these sound familiar to you?

  • strugging with anxiety, stress, depression and low-mood, low self-esteem and lack of confidence

  • feeling like you have lost sight of who you are, caught up in cultural conditioning and other peoples beliefs and expectations

  • have experienced trauma or abuse

  • trying to make more sense of your feelings, thoughts & behaviours

  • feeling like you've used up your "quota" of time to offload to your family and friends
