"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself"
Harvey Fierstein

Welcome to my website . My name is Paula and I qualified as a compassionate therapeutic counsellor in 2009. I have appointments at the Melksham Family Chiropractic Centre depending on availability, covering Westbury, Bath, Chippenham, Devizes, Frome, Trowbridge & Warminster. As a therapist I'm passionate about counselling, supporting individuals and couples during difficult periods in their life or for personal development. I offer a professional, affordable counselling therapy and a quality friendly service in a strictly confidential, safe, non judgmental and supportive space where you can explore feelings which often brings a huge sense of relief. I believe it is important to find the right counsellor "for you" as the therapeutic work we do together will impact on a successful outcome.

"The counselling process will help you to find out who you are as a person, separate from your family, partner and friends, what you need as an individual human being to feel fulfilled in life, find your sense of self and with that you can do anything!"

I am flexible and offer short term counselling, usually 6-12 sessions either weekly, twice weekly or fortnightly, depending on your preference, need and circumstances. Long term therapy, day and evening appointments are also available depending on availability.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and strictly follow their code of ethics and remain committed to my continued professional counselling development; my work is supervised in accordance with BACP guidelines to ensure safe working therapeutic counselling practice. I have experience working in the NHS for 6 1/2 years in GP surgeries, 2 years as a volunteer for Swindon Wiltshire Alcohol & Drugs Service, therapist for Corporate Companies, Charities, Insurance Companies and my own Private Counselling Practice.

I am passionate about supporting and counselling client's by developing the therapeutic counselling relationship around a wide range of life's many challenges e.g. abuse, addiction - alcohol, over eating, drugs, gambling etc, anxiety, bereavement (including pet), depression, eating disorders, family difficulties, gender identity, lack of confidence, low mood, low self esteem, relationship difficulties, self harm, sexuality, sexual problems, general life & work related stress, trauma, weight loss any problem or difficulty may be discussed in the strict confidence.

Confidential counselling, providing a safe, supportive therapeutic space in which you can begin to understand yourself better, gain new perspectives, enabling you to do things that initially you may have perceived as being impossible. My counselling is not suitable for clients with severe cognitive or learning difficulties, or severe speech and language problems.
