A Psychological and Complementary Therapy Centre at The Elms, Charmouth focussing on Psychological and Physical Wellbeing. The Centre is run by the founder, Deborah Gildersleeves who is a fully qualified, registered and insured Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist. Stillwaters reception is open every week day between 0930 and 1300. Appointments can be made outside these hours so please contact individual therapists via their mobile numbers below.

 Deborah believes in the counselling relationship being very much an equal partnership and as such, the number of sessions will depend upon the issues being experienced.

"It is essential that someone feels that they have time to build trust and rapport with their therapist and then able to explore where the therapeutic pathway is taking them and when they both feel that the work is complete". Deborah also believes in being as creative as possible as she does not believe that ‘one size fits all’ and so will tailor the therapeutic approach to fit with the individual. Luna the Great Dane provides her own brand of care and is an essential part of the therapeutic team although she will  always keep a low profile for those who may not feel relaxed around dogs.

Deborah has experience in working with Complex Injuries and the impact of such injuries upon those around them. As such she has gained specialist knowledge in the field of Post Traumatic Stress and issues around Acquired Disability. This experience enables Deborah to help anyone who maybe experiencing Post Traumatic symptoms and/or acquired disability following an accident or incident.


Deborah can offer 1-2-1 or couple counselling sessions; group workshops and support groups are also being planned for the near future.

Supervision, Mentoring and Support for other Practitioners is also available as Deborah holds a  BPS (British Psychological Society approved) Certificate in Supervision.

The cost for Psychotherapy and Counselling with Deborah is around £40.00 per session: please contact Deborah on 01297 561463 (0930-1300) or 07585 173854 at any time.
