Welcome to.. Thinking Out Loud Counselling, by Charisse Skelton MBACP.  A safe, secure place to talk about the things that are weighing on you and the difficulties you are experiencing in your life and relationships. 

Dealing with difficult feelings can feel overwhelming and it may seem as if you have nowhere to turn or no way out. Deciding to see a counsellor can be a scary thought, thinking about discussing, with a stranger,  private and sensitive subjects or even things that may feel shaming.   However, making the decision to start therapy can be the first step to empowering yourself to make significant changes in your life.

Thinking Out Loud Counselling provides a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space to explore together your deepest thoughts and feelings.   

Who is Charisse Skelton Thinking Out Loud Counselling

Charisse is a down to earth and friendly welcoming person.  Working in the therapeutic field since 2009, Charisse’s vocation is to support people to understand the experiences and challenges they have had and to become in greater contact with their organismic-self, the true authentic person within. 


First starting out as an NLP practitioner in 2009, Charisse realised there were many things that affected people’s lives that stemmed from childhood or traumatic experiences.  Charisse continued her studies in order to gain a broader training and knowledge in supporting and helping people therapeutically to feel understood and to begin to heal where necessary, completing a therapeutic counselling degree and child counselling and play therapy qualifications. Charisse is trained as a person-centred therapist, integrative child therapist, play and art therapist, NLP therapist and life coach. 


Charisse is experienced with working therapeutically with children and young people, in and out of a school setting, using her knowledge and experience of talking therapy, client-centred therapy, play therapy & art therapy and child-centred counselling. 

Charisse also specialises in working within different sub-communities, such as LGBTQIA+ ( sexual orientation, gender identity), BAME communities (cultural identity, oppression), personality disorders (understanding & managing emotions) and relationship trauma (CPTSD, narcistic abuse, domestic violence, coersive abuse).
