About me

My name is Debbie and I am a qualified counsellor for adults and children. I hold a full membership with the BACP and believes each and everybody is unique, and this is why the sessions I offer are fluid and will be shaped by 'you'. There is no right or wrong way and what suits one person may not suit another, so working in partnership is key to a successful counselling journey.

All clients are welcome to make initial contact, where we can decide together whether I will be able to support your needs. I will offer you a confidential, non judgemental, safe space to explore your inner turmoil, offering you a warm and gentle approach to help you unpick what's impacting your life. I have worked with people suffering from eating disorders for the past 4.5 years, anxiety, depression, low self esteem and confidence. When talking within four walls is daunting or you would like to try an alternative approach then Equine Facilitated Therapy and Learning is also available upon request.

What will happen in the session?

We can meet for an informal chat which is free and you are able to ask any questions and gage whether you think we could work together and discuss whether you would prefer an alternative route into therapy, such as Equine Assisted Therapy.

***Equine Therapy and Equine Assisted Learning***

Working in partnership with 'Helping Hands Healing Hooves' based in Corfe Mullen, which is home to a small heard of Minature horses, donkey and other farm animals. All lending a hand to clients who are wanting to connect, build positive relationships and improve interactions with others and the outside world.

Spending time with these intuitive animals can allow clients to learn about themselves in a more creative way. Equines live in a herd, which communicate by body language and behaviour, they can instinctively give feedback with their unconditional and unbiased reactions and by learning to be 'present' and 'in the Moment' can enable us to transfer these skills into everyday life.

Equine therapy suits all clients, but is particularly suited to people who have Autism or Asperger's Syndrome and Learning Disabilities.


How many sessions can I have?

We can discuss this at our first meeting, but I would offer 6 sessions at a time which can roll on. This I feel offers flexibility and an opportunity to be able to review how the sessions are working for you.

Further information

Anxiety, depression, stress, abuse and addictions are areas in which have impacted many of clients and more often then not one issue often impacts or is entwined with another. If I am unable to help you personally, then we can discuss potential signposting to other agencies or counsellors.
