About me

My name is Debbie and I am a BACP registered counsellor based in Farnham offering support to adults and young people over the age of 16. I offer face to face, online or telephone counselling. I have extensive experience of supporting clients with issues including bereavement, relationship difficulties, anxiety, stress, sleep issues (insomnia), anger, depression, identity, self-harm and suicidal ideation among other things.

I offer a supportive and confidential space where we can explore together the events that are making your life difficult and help you find a new understanding of your life experiences and a different way of dealing with things.

I am an Integrative counsellor, meaning that I am trained in a number of theoretical approaches (person centered, psychodynamic, cognitive behaviour therapy - CBT and existential) and I tailor my approach according to what is useful to my clients.

The benefit of coming for counselling is that you will to be listened to without judgement by someone who isn’t personally involved in your life.  You can say what you honestly think and feel without fear of upsetting the listener.  You don’t need to protect the counsellor from your true feelings.  This level of honesty and openness gives you the opportunity to explore how you genuinely feel.

You might be looking for help with a specific issue, or simply feel the need for some emotional support while you find your way through a difficult time. Counselling can help you find clarity and help you move forward with a renewed sense of hope and confidence.

I offer my clients the opportunity to meet me online or by phone at a reduced rate of £40.  This can be for all of your sessions or just for the sessions when it is more convenient for you to meet me this way.  If you are interested in working this way, we can talk about in our initial consultation.
