About me

Hi there, my name is Deanna, I offer a friendly, confidential, professional counselling service to adults from my cosy, private practice in Rayleigh. My opening hours are week days, evenings and weekends.

Through my practice and corporate HR background I have a wealth of experience working with a diverse range of clients with different presenting issues. My approach is person centred, which means that you will lead the session at a pace comfortable and tailored for you, as no two clients are the same.

Seeking counselling is a big step and can seem overwhelming, I too have been there and know how it feels. I will be there every step of the way to support you and empower you to make decisions right for you.

A previous client once said to me “you make me feel cared for even when your not talking” which reflects my approach to counselling. If you want to sit there and silently reflect that’s ok, if you want to cry for the whole session that is fine too, I will sit with you until you feel ready for the next step.

My approach is empathic, non-judgemental and adheres to the ethical framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

To get started: Please call me to arrange a FREE no obligation 15 minute telephone consultation to discuss your needs and ascertain what you would like to achieve and if counselling with me is right for you. The best way to reach me is call or text and let me know your availability for a telephone consultation. I will contact you to arrange an appointment, from there if all goes well, your first session is arranged. Prepayment is required to secure the booking.

At the first counselling session, we agree how we will work together and an assessment is carried out. Usually about ten minutes before the end of the session I will let you know that we are coming to the end allowing time to end nicely and have time to discuss any arrangements for the next session.
