Debbie King BACP Registered Counsellor
I am a fully qualified counsellor with over 13 years experience of working with adults and a wide range of life issues including Anger Management, Anxiety and Depression, (including Generalised anxiety disorder and Panic disorder). I am also experienced in working with relationship issues with individuals, couples or families.
In addition I specialise in working with couples where Asperger's Syndrome/Autism is present, either diagnosed or undiagnosed. I have extensive experience both professionally and personally in this area and have helped many couples with the issues this can cause in relationships.
My approach is Person-centred which means that I am led by my client enabling me to tailor the therapy to the individual clients' requirements. It is an approach which enables the client to work with what suits them and at their own pace.
Please note Face-to-Face to appointments currently suspended. I have been online counselling for over 3 years and offer remote counselling via Skype/Facetime/Zoom.
All too often, counselling is thought of as an extreme measure or just for people who are ill. I believe it would benefit many of us to talk in confidence to an exceptionally responsive person about our private concerns.
Counselling gives you the chance to engage in enlightening conversation marked by curiosity, respect and kindness. Perhaps you are looking for ways to deepen your relationship, or want to learn more about what kind of parent you are. You could be facing family issues or maybe Separation or Divorce. Maybe you are frustrated by aspects of your working life, and know you could be more productive and fulfilled. Maybe you are facing situations that are new to you. Whatever your interest or concern, counselling can take you on a fascinating and valuable tour of your own psyche.
Counselling is carried out in a safe and confidential environment. You will be working with a trained professional who is experienced in dealing with all aspects of peoples’ lives. Experienced to help you with the challenges and opportunities to you face, working with you so that you can identify the best way for you to deal with things.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
