Deborah Barlow Dip Counselling MBACP
I offer my clients a welcoming and safe space where they feel comfortable and able to express how they are feeling.
Sessions generally take place once per week and I try to be as flexible as possible to accommodate client's availability ,as I understand that finding even one hour per week can sometimes be a challenge.
I can offer online counselling , telephone counselling and I also have limited face to face sessions available.
I am an Integrative Counsellor who mainly uses Person Centred Therapy as the basis of my approach but with an open mind to aspects of other modalities such as CBT and Jungian approaches.
I have worked successfully in the past with a variety of client issues , in particular anxiety , depression, social anxiety , work related issues , family issues and bereavement . I have also worked with clients undergoing treatment and experiencing health issues.
More information can be found on my website and I am happy to have a brief telephone chat with potential clients where I can answer any questions that you may have .

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.
