Welcome to The Saffron Walden Therapy Room

Thank you for visiting our website where a warm welcome is offered to all.

The Saffron Walden Therapy Room is a small, independent and professional counselling practice established in 2015 by Lisa Edmonds MBACP (Member British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and Charmaine Dunmow UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy). The practice is situated in the heart of Saffron Walden.
We are qualified and experienced integrative counsellors offering individual, couple and relationship counselling to adults.

Additionally, we offer personal development sessions and workshops for individuals and small groups.

We hope you will find some helpful information and if there is anything else you need, please do get in touch.


A counsellor or psychotherapist may be schooled using different therapeutic theories and this will influence their work in practice. Some of the more well known ones include: humanistic, psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, Jungian, existential, gestalt, person centred, attachment based and transpersonal. Integrative counsellors and therapists are trained using more than one model and this approach is often referred to as a 'whole person' approach.

Is counselling for you?

Sometimes during our lives we can experience periods of stress, we may have a history of past trauma, or we may feel that we have come to crossroad and we do not know which way to turn. Often there is a general feeling of confusion or a sense that something just doesn't feel right.
Counselling provides the opportunity to express your thoughts and feelings in a setting where you will be listened to and not judged.
Talking through your issues or concerns with a counsellor can help you to make sense of what you are going through and understand why you are feeling the way you do. Your self-awareness grows.
This understanding in itself can bring about personal psychological change, helping you to recognise the choices available to you and finding ways in which to move forward in your life.

The Saffron Walden Therapy Room provides a safe place where you can explore your thoughts and feelings with a qualified counsellor in a calm, non-judgemental and confidential environment.

Our counselling practice is based in the heart of the historic town of Saffron Walden, Essex which is easily accessable from the M11, Audley End rail station, Cambridge, Bishops Stortford and all of the surrounding villages of Littlebury, Debden, Ashdon, Radwinter, Newport, Clavering, Great Chesterford, Little Chesterford, Quendon, Ugley, Thaxted, Stansted Mountfitchet and Elsenham.
