I offer therapeutic counselling at my practice in Market Lavington.
How can Therapeutic Counselling help?
Therapeutic Counselling is about having someone to talk to you can trust, who is non-judgemental and works with you to understand your world. As a therapeutic counsellor, I provide support for you and a safe outlet for emotions brought up by life events, such as bereavement, coping with anxiety and depression, relationships, anything you would like to explore and understand about yourself. Low self-esteem and lack of confidence can get in the way of personal growth and really affect how you cope with the struggle of day-to-day life.

- Eating Disorders
- Low self esteem
- Divorce & separation
- Affairs and betrayal
How to book your first session
Taking that first step to ask for help can be extremely daunting, and it takes courage to make that call, send that text message or email.
Once we have made contact, we will make an appointment for your first session will be about what the counselling process is, and how we work together to give you the best support. It can take a few weeks to become familiar with how the process helps you and to feel the benefits. Counselling is not about a quick fix, but to sow the seeds of long-term progress and personal development. We will set a time and day which suits you for your future sessions.
My therapy studio in Market Lavington is set in the cottage garden, up a set of steps, surrounded by lovely plants, in a peaceful setting. I will wait for you by the cottage gate and take you up to the studio.
