About me

**Update for COVID-19** I am still welcoming new clients. Sessions are running well on video chat on Zoom.

Hi, I'm Debbie Daltrey, a fully qualified and registered counsellor and psychotherapist, and solution focused therapist. Sometimes it helps to talk, and sometimes it can help to talk to somebody who is impartial, non-judgemental, and in confidence.

I can help you with any emotional problems you may have, and together we can explore those issues. I will not tell you what to do, but I will listen and understand life from your point of view, as I ensure you feel heard and valued.

I work as an integrative therapist, this means that I am able to use tools from a variety of other therapies if required. I am trained in the person centred approach to counselling, and I am also trained in other therapies including NLP, EFT, and solution focused brief therapy. I also am a trained and experienced solution focused hypnotherapist. We work as a team and I will always work with you to discuss and jointly decide our approach.

Person centred counselling offers a non-judgemental approach to help you to find your way through problems, and it avoids any kind of analysis. Instead, you benefit from unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence. These core conditions help to create a positive, firm foundation for a trusting therapeutic relationship. To feel safe is important as it helps you to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a trusted environment.

In this way counselling can help you to rediscover a sense of wellbeing and peace. It is based on a humanistic philosophy that every individual has the ability to create a more positive, and satisfying way of life.

Talking is priceless. No problem is too big or too small.

If you feel that talking to somebody who is non-judgemental, impartial, and in a confidential environment might help, then please feel free to book a complementary initial consultation on my website on the ‘Book Now’ button at the top of the page. There's no better time to start than today. Or you can contact me by phone or email.

Member organisations

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.
