I am a professional counsellor, who works in the Devizes area of Wiltshire. My role is to provide a safe place for you to explore your feelings and provide an outlet for emotions brought up by life events, such as bereavement, or coping with anxiety and depression brought about by the struggle of day-to-day life.
Low self-esteem and lack of confidence can impede personal growth. Counselling is about having someone to talk to you can trust, who is non-judgemental and works with you to understand your world.
I believe in a holistic approach to mental and physical health, and have both indoor and outdoor facilities, with options for outdoor therapy, the healing qualities of being in nature and around animals.
A combined approach to psychotherapy enables me to bring together different elements of specific therapies to work in the best way to help you. I work in an integrative way, with a view that there is no single approach that can help each client in all situations.
