Counselling in Ashburton or online

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Thais Lloyd, but people call me Tess. I am fully qualified and BACP registered. I have been working with clients since 1993.

I am experienced in working with the following issues:

  • Low mood or depression
  • Anxiety and panic attacks
  • Low self-worth
  • Difficulty in relationships
  • Trauma, abuse and other difficult experiences
  • Dementia, fatigue, illnesses, and health-related stress
  • Difficult life changes
  • Loss and grief
  • Addiction


Counselling is a chance for you to be deeply heard and understood in times of difficulty. It sometimes mean slowing down and making space for you to notice what is going on for you, to gain clarity around what may be painful, complex or confusing. Other times it can mean challenging your way of thinking or experimenting new ways of being. Working on what is difficult or hurtful won't always be easy, but we will work together to help you understand and deal with whatever is difficult for you. 

​I will offer you:

  • A warm, safe, confidential space where I'll listen to you in a non-judgemental and supportive way.

  • A genuine, honest, professional relationship with me.

  • Openness to talk about your problems and consider how you want to move forward.

  • Working in a way that follows your pace, respects your goals and builds on your strengths.

  • Flexibility and focus to help you find ways to improve your well-being.

I would like to help you to:


  • grow awareness of yourself and understand your difficulties

  • find a way back to your strengths, to your inner confidence and calm

  • explore what you need or want to change and how that can be done

  • feel connected to your life in a more creative and meaningful way.

My experience of working with people from all walks of life gives me flexibility to work in a professional way with each unique client. I am committed to working with you to the best of my ability.
