Deborah Green Registered BACP Senior Accred
I have been practicing as a counsellor since I qualified 22 years ago in 1998, I also have degree in psychology.
I can offer SINGLE SESSION COUNSELLING, for those who have a specific issue that they would like to discuss. If this is something you are interested in, then do email me and we can discuss it further.
INDIVIDUAL COUNSELLING. After 22 years of practice I have a wide variety of experience in all sorts of issues, including depression, worry and anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, stress, anger management, relationship issues, bereavement and loss, serious illness and other lifestyle changes.
COUPLES COUNSELLING. I have been working with couples throughout my counselling career.
ABOUT ME. In 2001 I started the counselling service at a small local hospice, and I managed that service for 10 years.
Currently I work in private practice and have done for 10 years and I am also a tutor, teaching the 2nd and 3rd years of a counselling diploma course, training counselling students.
I have been an accredited counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy since April 2005 and a senior accredited counsellor since August 2012. This means that I have demonstrated to the BACP that I provide a competent, professional, ethical and independent practice and that I abide by their standards, ethics and guidelines.
As a senior accredited counsellor with the BACP I am required to have ongoing supervision and I see my supervisor on a monthly basis. This ensures that I continue to work ethically and professionally with all my clients.
As a senior accredited counsellor with the BACP, I am required to continue with my professional development and education so I regularly attend workshops and training days and read extensively on the subject of psychotherapy and counselling.
I am also trained to supervise counsellors.
I can offer appointments on Saturdays and Sundays during the day time. I can occasionally do midweek appointments during the day, by arrangement.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

I also offer a 30 minute assessment session for no charge, for those wishing to chat with me before starting counselling. This is an opportunity for us to meet each other and to discuss what your issues might be and how we might work together and how counselling might help. There is absolutely no obligation to enter into counselling with me after attending the assessment session.
