Welcome to Lynne Chilton Counselling in Winchester
I am a very experienced and qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, a clinical supervisor and an Accredited Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I provide an established and professional counselling service to Winchester, Southampton, Eastleigh, Romsey and the surrounding areas.
I understand that life can become a struggle at times and thoughts and feelings can seem overwhelming or confusing, perhaps. When faced with such challenges, we all need a little extra support. As a Person-Centred counsellor I listen in such a way that is non-judgemental; I do not tell you what to do but try to help you reach your own answers, outcomes and decisions. This can often give rise to a sense of liberation and freedom and the opportunity for change and development that is significant and sustainable.
How I can help you
Whilst, as a counsellor, I often work with clients in crisis or in particular areas of difficulty I am also keen to work with you if you are currently happy and successful and would like to enhance the quality of your life further through counselling. Whatever your presenting issues, concerns or goals may be, my aim is to provide you with a space and a quality of attention to help you to explore and examine your life, your relationships and your career as you so wish. I will help you to think about and develop your options and to decide a way forward for yourself.
The first step is to call me on 07891592819 or click here to email and I will be happy to discuss any questions that you may have or provide you with any further information that you may require.
I have worked extensively in counselling and psychotherapy for many years with adults, young people and couples and have experience of working with a wide range of issues. These include:
I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period. The first appointment is an assessment and an opportunity to meet one another and see how we get on and might work together. It is a chance for you to tell me whatever you want to about your circumstances and to ask me whatever you might need to know about me and how I work.
I have developed a highly regarded professional practice in a private setting in Winchester; it is extremely welcoming and calm and it is a safe and confidential space in which to take the time to explore the issues that concern you and with which you are seeking support. My psychotherapy practice is within easy reach of Winchester, Southampton, Eastleigh, Romsey and surrounding areas.
My professional body is the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am a Registered Accredited Counsellor. I work to the Code of Practice and Ethical Framework of the BACP. I am a registered Psychotherapist with a number of private healthcare providers, including AXA-PPP and BUPA and I deliver counselling and psychotherapy for the Police Firearms Officers Association (PFOA), Sporting Chance (clinic for professional sports people), One Savings Bank and Retail Trust as well as numerous Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) providers.
