Hello, my name is Debbie and I would like the chance for us to work together. I am discreet and confidential. I understand how important that part of the service is for you when you seek out a therapist. Why choose me? Because I know I can help you. There is nothing about you, that will stop me wanting to work with you.
I am a humanistic counsellor, which means I listen to you. I listen to what you have to say and how that makes you feel. I listen to what is going on in your life and with whom.
There are no secrets, you do not have to silent, be afraid, feel guilty or ashamed.
I will not judge you - I will accept you and I will hold, all of you.
I can help you with abuse, depression, anxiety, and relationship issues. If you are finding yourself feeling sad or have been affected by affairs or betrayals - don’t stay silent, let’s talk about this. Panic disorders and stress can dismantle you from within, bereavement leaves you feeling isolated and alone, especially if the bereavement relates to children or is a unexpected death.
Please, do not feel your are alone, let me hear your voice and let me give you permission to grieve, show and tell me your emotions. Let me have one hour of your week, for you to be free, to just talk or let go and cry. I want to hear what you have to say. I am here for you, sometimes, that’s all you need.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked with individuals who have brought their areas of concerns into the counselling room, and these areas have been - stress, bereavement, depression, anxiety, histories of abusive, self-harming and relationships problems.
I have also seen seen individuals who have conflict with family heritage, sexual preference / desires and religious belief.
I strive to bring safety within our therapeutic relationship, to give you autonomy and offer you the chance to forgive yourself, accept yourself and love yourself.
There may be times when you feel overwhelmed or even slightly challenged, but stay with the sessions, when you stand at the finishing line and your counsellings sessions are over with, all the counselling and self reflection will have been worth it. You will move forward with your life
I volunteer for two charities, one is focused on feelings and suicidal thoughts and the other is religion based, offering support to individuals who are homeless, have present or past addictions, or have a wide range of mental health issues.
