Welcome to Lynne Chilton Counselling in Winchester


Online sessions available

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.

"Before I started working with Lynne, I would be overwhelmed by some situations and find it difficult to access how I was feeling. Since then, I'm able to be more mindful of my thoughts and more able to choose how I react. Lynne's friendly and non-judgemental approach allowed me to be open and I was able to work through things at my own pace. I highly recommend her to anyone."
- Rob

"I came to Lynne lost and not knowing who I was or where I was going. One step at a time I began to understand what my issues were and how I could change; feel a better person both personally and professionally. This is having an affect on my colleagues and family in a positive way too. I can't thank Lynne enough." - Jeff

"When I first met Lynne, I felt like I was existing inside a pressure cooker. I labelled this workplace stress, a lack of self-confidence and some challenging personal relationships. She helped me to recognise the real reasons why I needed support at this time in my life and gave me the space and confidence to really attend to what was going on. She provided insightful feedback which I found really valuable. Lynne is a very special person." - Jon

"This (counselling) helped me in so many ways to be able to move forward. Lynne's counselling skills are second to none, she is very warm and friendly in a way that you can open up to her without feeling guarded and most definitely not feeling you are being judged in any way." - Lisa

"Lynne very carefully and without judgement, helped me attend to multiple significant life events that had come together simultaneously, to a point that finding the solution on my own had felt impossible. She supported me with professionalism and care to a point that I now have perspective and have learned to communicate more clearly about how I feel and what I want, in all areas of my life." - Martin


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.

My Practice

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.
