Debby Konigsberg MBACP : Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
If you're drawn towards an approach that's open minded, warm and supportive, grounded in a flexible, effective combination of therapeutic practices, then feel free to phone or email with your enquiries about short or long term therapy. This Integrative therapeutic model works flexibly with your well-being, feelings and concerns at the forefront. Together we'll move forward at your pace towards exploration, insights and awareness that lead to relief, clarity and new outlooks on life.
My experience covers concerns including:
- depression and anxiety
- relationship difficulties
- losses such as bereavement, separation and divorce
- self esteem and confidence building
- self harm
- trauma and crisis
- recovering from abuse
- changes in life stages and ageing
- health and disability issues
- carer's issues
- hopelessness and lack of motivation
- loneliness and isolation
- cultural identity
- work and professional struggles
The counselling sessions
The first session will explore your circumstances, the reasons you've come and what you hope to gain from your therapy. It's an opportunity to get to know each other.
You can then choose to book in further sessions during which we will explore whatever concerns, feelings and issues you wish to deal with.

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.
