Deborah Gray MBACP, BSsc, Dip,NSc
I am a qualified integrative transpersonal psychotherapist. I have a bachelor’s degree in Behavioural Science and a post-graduate degree in Neuropsychotherapy. I am currently studying a Masters in Consciousness, Spirituality and Transpersonal Psychology. I use a holistic approach to healing, growth and transformation. Transpersonal counselling incorporates body, mind and spirit in the process. The model I use draws on the principles of psychoanalytical, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), person-centred, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), neuropsychotherapy, gestalt, creative art therapies, sand-play, mindfulness, existential and the transpersonal.
I aim to create a safe environment, to listen, be empathic through a non-judgement attitude, seeing clients as unique and individual. The therapeutic space creates a co-created awareness to facilitate change, transformation and healing.
I also have counselling sessions via Skype, Zoom or Microsoft team. Counselling, adults and young people and children with different ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious and cult. I am a qualified therapist, with over 20 years of experience.
I offer a variety of therapies.

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.
