About me

Life at times can be challenging. We may encounter events or life experience that leave us feeling isolated and without a voice and the need to be supported emotionally. Some experiences despite being in our past can impact on everyday living in the here and now. This can lead to us feeling anxious, depressed, angry or frustrated and questioning ourselves and impact on our ability and confidence to cope.

However you may have a specific issue such as a bereavement or loss, low self-esteem or lack of confidence that you would like to address. Counselling can offer you a supportive and safe space in which to offload, explore or better understand your experience(s).

This confidential and supportive environment enables you to express and explore your thoughts and feelings freely without being judged. The therapeutic process will assist you in gaining a clearer understanding of the presenting issue(s) and help make sense of feelings and difficulties leading to greater self-awareness and help in exploring ways to manage your life.

I am an accredited BACP Counsellor and Counselling Supervisor offering a safe and ethical way of working. I have experience of talking with people all ages in various settings.

I work from an integrative framework which allows me to adapt my approach to meet the individual client’s needs. We are all different and each client is unique with their issues and concerns.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Client Testimonial.

Feb 17                   Client R

I was extremely nervous about going to see a therapist. Within moments of meeting Debbie all of the fear left my body and I was immediately at ease and able to trust, I felt secure and safe. Talking and breaking through layers of self-protection is not easy and takes time. I cannot recommend Debbie highly enough. She has an incredible, sometimes unfathomable, awareness and ability to analyse situations and relationships. Her professionalism is exemplary.  Anyone who feels they in need of support should get in touch as soon as possible. I waited such a long time before I asked for help. Seeing Debbie has completely changed my perspective and her support and techniques have given me the tools to maintain good mental health and positive self-care that I could not have achieved alone. She is a truly exceptional individual and her broad range of study and experience is a huge comfort to a doubtful and questioning mind.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

The therapy room is located on the 3rd floor but there is lift access.
