Deborah Malcolm, MBACP
07548 295 092
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) offering short or long-term counselling to individuals over 16 years of age.
People come to counselling for a wide variety of reasons. Life pressures and difficult situations may bring about anxiety, stress and depression. Feeling different, misunderstood or wanting something to change can create unhappiness or anger.
I help people try to understand and resolve their issues by increasing their awareness of what might be going on within their ‘internal world’ and how this can affect their relationships with others. The key to making positive changes is the motivation to explore and challenge one-self. I am also interested in the relationship between the body and mind as well as spiritual, cultural and faith issues.
My approach is integrative. Being an integrative therapist means I will draw on a range of therapeutic approaches and tailor them to suit your individual needs. I may also suggest creative tools, such as drawing, writing or visualisation. Everyone is different and what may be helpful to one person may not be suitable to you. How we work will be agreed between us.
My areas of expertise include anxiety and depression, low self- esteem, relationship issues and trauma. I also have a huge interest in the area of diet and nutrition and the impact this can have on our mental health and emotional wellbeing. I provide a warm, safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and any root causes that may have led you to becoming ‘stuck’ or lose a sense of who you are.
Each session will last for 50 minutes, usually once a week.

When we meet for our initial appointment it is important that we both feel we can work with each other. Research shows ‘the relationship is the therapy.’ Our working relationship is important and we need to make sure it is right. Once we have agreed to work together, I would usually offer an initial series of 6 sessions to begin the therapy.
