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”
