Deborah Blyth BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist; UKRCP Registered
I am a very experienced counsellor/psychotherapist and clinical supervisor, both in private practice and the NHS. I have worked with people from many different backgrounds who have experienced all sorts of psychological distress or difficulties (of varying severity) including: relationship issues, depression, anxiety (inc.panic attacks), childhood abuse, low self esteem, anger management etc.
I aspire to be warm, empathic, non-judgemental, understanding, and thoughtful. I encourage and facilitate individuals: to make sense of their situation, develop self awareness and self-esteem, and motivate change.
I see individuals for either a limited number of sessions or on a more flexible contract. The sessions are one hour long and I have an initial session at reduced rates.
I work integratively utilising CBT, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, person centred and pychodynamic models. I adhere to the BACP codes of Best Practice and I underpin my work with clinical supervision and I regularly undertake therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been practising for 20 years; the last 13 years as a NHS psychotherapeutic counsellor and supervisor. Prior to this I was employed by an addictions agency and the Sussex Criminal Justice System. I have regularly updated my qualifications since training with the addictions agency and completing a Post Graduate Diploma at the University of Brighton. I am BACP accredited counsellor/psychotherapist, UKRCP registered counsellor/psychotherapist, and a registered Interpersonal Therapist (IPT). I have also completed Clinical Supervision training at the Metanioa Institute.
