Debby Luffman MBACP & MUPCA
70 Mayfield Road
I am an experienced integrative counsellor, a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT), a psychotherapist, and a relationship counsellor based in both Croydon and South Croydon. My work is accredited by the UKCP and I am a registered member of the BACP. My therapy is in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental environment where one can explore their emotional needs using a mixture of therapeutic approaches adapted for each client. These include psychoanalytical therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), cognitive analytic therapy, person-centred therapy, existential therapy and inner-child work.
Could Counselling and Psychotherapy Help Me?
Most people go through times in their lives that are painful and distressing, or when they have difficult decisions to make. Sometimes memories from the past present anxiety about the future which can make it difficult to cope with everyday life. Maybe you are repeating the same patterns of behaviour and thoughts. I am a trained and experienced counsellor, psychotherapist and Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT), who will hear what you say and understand how you feel, without judging you.
Based in South Croydon and Croydon. I am easily accessible by car, bus or train from areas such as Croydon, Purley, Carshalton, Sanderstead and Warlingham. I also offer counselling via Skype.
I work on an open ended basis, or on a short-term basis, where a particular issue may have been identified. However, as endings are vital in therapy, it is important that we discuss this in advance.
The sessions provide a therapeutic space where you can explore past difficulties and emotions. This can help you become connected to your inner resources to help move you forward, promoting healing and growth.
At present I work in my private practice, and also for Mind as a counsellor and an assessor, in the mental health field.
My private practice is open from Monday to Friday. Evening week day appointments can also be arranged to suit you, and additionally, Saturday appointments are available.
I hope you have found this information helpful when making your decision. Should you wish to contact me, please either email me or call on the mobile no above to arrange an initial meeting. In this meeting, we can discuss your needs and access the therapy most appropriate for you. Please note that although the initial session is chargeable, there is no obligation to take this further.
Finally, I abide by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Code of Ethics and Practice regarding the confidential nature of counselling and psychotherapy, its practice and procedure.
