Counselling in Ashburton or online

Welcome to my website. My name is Thais Lloyd, but people call me Tess. I am a fully qualified counsellor with over 15 years' experience.

Through counselling, I offer you the opportunity of being truly heard in times of distress. As we work together to understand your difficulties, we will learn about your strengths and resources. My aim is to be there with and for you, supporting you to explore, widen your awareness, and make the changes you want to make.


If you haven't had counselling before, I would say that this experience is similar to being with someone who listens to you with deep attention, and works alongside you to unravel and understand experiences that are painful or confusing. 

Being truly listened to is an invaluable experience. We can feel very alone when we are hurting, but I know from my work and from my own personal experience that talking to someone who is genuinely interested in us, respects and supports us, is very precious. It helps us feel connected to others and to ourselves; it help us find new ways forward, new ways of living life more fully.

It is a privilege for me to do the work that I do.
