Hello, my name is Debby, I am a fully qualified counsellor based in Sittingbourne. Thank you for stopping and having a look at my page.
I am a friendly, caring, empathic person who is passionate about what I do. Counselling can seem scary when you haven’t had it before, but it need not be. I am a down to earth person who will make your journey with me as comfortable as possible. It is my job to help develop a honest genuine relationship which allows you to feel accepted, understood and valued.
We will always work at your own pace and focus on whatever you would like to focus on. it is led by you. Therapy is about you, it’s a time to sit and reflect in a safe and comforting environment on the things that are causing you stress, anxiety or depression.
I feel being let into someone's life is a real privilege.
As a registered member of the British Association for counselling and psychotherapists (BACP) I adhere to their policies and code of ethics. I offer short or long term counselling. I am trained in “person centred therapy”, I also work with other theories when I need to.
“You may not be there yet, but you’re closer than you were yesterday”

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
