Deborah Lyttelton, UKCP reg
At this difficult time, online counselling might be an answer to getting support. I am experienced in using the phone and online video (zoom or skype) to offer therapy and supervision.
I can offer sessions to meet your particular needs - regular weekly one-hour sessions, twice-weekly 30 minute sessions or ad hoc sessions as and when you need to talk to someone.
My usual fee is £50 per hour. From April to the end of June I am offering anyone who contacts me who has lost their job because of the virus or is working in the NHS a reduced fee of £30. For anyone in a high risk group who is self isolating I would also reduce my fee to £30.
I am an integrative psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor and have been practising since 2003.
I have experience of working in private practice, the NHS and for the voluntary sector as a psychotherapist and supervisor.
I have worked in the voluntary sector for many years in a variety of roles, most recently as Senior Psychotherapist for Respond and previously as Director of the Maya Centre, which is a counselling centre for women in Islington.
I offer counselling, psychotherapy and supervision in Suffolk (in Wenhaston and Woodbridge (monday pm only). I provide supervision in London (Islington). I can also provide Skype or phone sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Integrative Psychosynthesis Counselling from Re-Vision Centre for Integrative Psychosynthesis (2004) and a Diploma in Psychotherapy (2008) also from Re-Vision. I also have a Supervision Diploma from Re-Vision (2014).
I have gained my experience in a variety of settings including my own private practice and various voluntary organisations. I used to work in the NHS and until 2014 worked at Respond as a senior psychotherapist for people with learning disabilities.
I provide supervision to other counsellors and psychotherapists.
I am a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy and adhere to their framework of ethics and professional conduct.
I have worked with people from a wide range of backgrounds and who have come to therapy with very varied problems and issues. I have particular experience in working with eating disorders and addictions and people who have been sexually abused.
