About me

My name is Debbie. I am a Counsellor and Hypnotherapist.

Are you feeling "stuck", "sad" or "hopeless" at the moment?

Do you feel unable to share these feelings with anyone?

Are you struggling to manage a big life event or do you believe you are at a crossroads in your relationship?

All of these feelings can be helped in the Therapy room and I would love you to help you in my Therapy room.

Would you let me help you? Could I be the person to offer you compassion and empathy and help you find a way forward - without judgement and feeling safe.  

I will treat you with compassion and sensitivity. I will help you make sense of what is going on for you and help you find a path towards a better future.

You are always the most important person in my therapy room.

Further information

I am an experienced, mature, Counsellor, Couple's counsellor and Hypnotherapist. I bring a wealth of life and work experience to the Therapy room having spent all of my working life supporting many of the most vulnerable in society within the Criminal Justice system. It was my work with victims and families who have lost loved ones through crime that inspired my desire to become a therapist. I offer a broad range of therapeutic expertise, working with trauma, anxiety, depression, bereavement, smoking cessation, self-defeating behaviours, phobias and my chosen specialisms, solution focussed couple's counselling and weight loss management.

As an LGBTQ+ affirmative counsellor, I welcome clients from a diverse background who may be struggling with their identity, expectations of society or who have suffered due to the lack of understanding and tolerance of others.

As a Pluralistic counsellor, I encourage my clients to become part of the decision making throughout their therapeutic journey. My clients are encouraged to express their wishes and feedback on what works for them in the therapy room. I will always listen to that feedback and work collaboratively with my clients to support them to reach their goals.
