Hello and welcome to my profile.
There are times in life when we all need some extra help and support to solve a difficult issue, it is my belief is that everyone has the capacity and the potential to resolve emotional issues and, as a result, feel empowered and fulfilled.
Below is one of a testimonial written by one of my clients:
“I felt really heard and understood in my sessions with Deborah, that in itself helped me release the blocks that were stopping me from moving forwards"
I am a counsellor and psychotherapist with 15 years experience, this includes 3 years as the clinical manager of a counselling service in GP surgeries in Darlington. I have a Masters degree in Integrative Psychotherapy and I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I also have a Diploma in Clinical Supervision and have supervised psychotherapists, counsellors and students for over 10 years.
I have worked with hundreds of clients presenting with a whole range of issues including relationship issues, stress, anxiety, low mood, depression, work related issues, trauma, PTSD and gender issues (for a full list see below) I work with teenagers (16 year or older) and adults of all ages including older adults
I offer a safe and non judgemental therapeutic environment where you'd be able to understand what's going on for you right now and then devise ways to resolve and manage your current concerns. I work in a respectful way being particularly sensitive to your individual needs. I offer a range of approaches from brief focussed (where a more immediate solution is needed) to longer term, more in depth therapy.
My first career was physiotherapy so all in all I have 27 years working one to one in health care. Even though I progressed very quickly 'up the ladder,' it was whilst working as a physiotherapist that I realised that what I found most rewarding was to help people with their emotional issues so I decided to train in counselling and psychotherapy. I am very pleased I did make that change as this means witnessing people changing towards feeling stronger and more fulfilled and getting what they want from life.
I abide by the Codes of Ethics and Practice of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I am committed to my on-going continuous professional development regularly attending courses, workshops and conferences.
My practice is based in a very comfortable and quiet room in my home, near Yarm. I offer daytime, evening and Saturday morning appointments and parking is free.
