Welcome to Buxton & Chesterfield counselling

Sadie Smith counsellor - Buxton, Chesterfield

As you will see, there are butterflies on my website. A butterfly’s life cycle is ever changing. Often, our friends and loved ones tell us that we should be over a painful bereavement, or that we should accept a trauma from childhood and life goes on. Sometimes it doesn’t, and we struggle with our problems, thoughts and feelings. But just as with the butterfly, change is always happening, even during these painful times. And sometimes a counsellor can help the process along.


At times hope seems very far away, but whatever pain we are experiencing, hope is there for all of us. What is wanted may be possible. Hope does not let us down.

The poet Emily Dickinson describes hope beautifully: (click on the title to see the whole poem):

"Hope is the thing with feathers,
That perches in the soul …"
