Counselling Therapy in Melksham and Westbury Wiltshire, covering Bradford on Avon, Calne, Chippenham, Corsham, Devizes, Trowbridge, Warminster, Frome, Bath & North East Somerset
Welcome. My name is Paula and I qualified as a compassionate therapeutic counsellor in 2009. I have appointments at the Melksham Family Chiropractic Centre and in Westbury at the Edward Street Clinic depending on availability. 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.
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, 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 can be discussed in strictest confidence.
