Deborah Brereton MFETC (Dip) MNCS (Accred) Therapeutic Counsellor
I am a qualified Emotional Therapeutic Counsellor in the Cheshire/Derbyshire and Greater Manchester areas.
Emotional Therapeutic Counselling is a form of counselling for those who are experiencing emotional turmoil in their lives whether brought about by a crisis, a long-term situation, persistent unhappiness, depression, apathy or difficulties in relating to others. A key aspect of Emotional Therapeutic Counselling is the range of techniques used by the Therapist to assist the client to both recognise and release painful feelings in an appropriate manner, by working with the emotions rather than the mind.
I offer a safe, non judgemental and confidential environment in which to explore your emotions, working at your own pace, and with warmth and compassion. I aim to help you come to a wholeness of mind body and spirit by supporting you through the process of change and personal growth. and help promote healing of the original emotional wounds.
I believe emotional wellbeing is the key to a balanced and fulfilling life.
