Deborah Grice-Griffin,Couns MNCS (Accred). Adults, Children and Young People
Hi my name is Debbie.....I'm an adult, child and young people's counsellor with practices in Droitwich and Solihull, as part of my practice I am also a school counsellor.
I appreciate how difficult life can become, you might be experiencing anxiety, family issues, sadness, loss, depression, separation, or low self-esteem or struggling with your feelings but not sure why. If this is the case, then you have come to the right place. Dealing with work life / school life balance can be stressful. It may be you don't know what is wrong but something is. Beginning counselling can help you explore why you feel this way and help you to change something, manage something differently or see a new way of looking at it.
My practice is Mirrality Counselling, I offer a quiet relaxed space to talk so you or your child can explore what's troubling you. I’m passionate about mental wellbeing and am committed to making a difference to yours. I promise you listening ears, empathy, confidentiality and space for you to be you. For your child we can talk, work creatively or play whatever suits your child and enables them to feel free to explore their worlds and worries.
I am a down-to-earth, friendly person. I will work with you at your pace. Counselling is a time for you, where you can feel free to be open in a non-judgemental and safe environment. It can empower you to make those changes which may be holding you back, it can help you see a different perspective and change the way you manage it. I am committed to supporting you through this process of change and as an integrative counsellor will work in a way which is best for you and the process.
I understand how frightening it can be when you feel stuck and like there are no options. But you don't have to go through it alone. Together we can find what works best for you and get through the mist.
I will offer you a calm and safe space to talk through your thoughts, feelings and experiences. I will listen to you with empathy and without judgement. I will give you the space to find your own solutions and ways forward. Whatever your issue, my aim is to build a trusting and safe confidential relationship with you, so that we can discuss and explore your concerns safely and in confidence.
Being in counselling can feel like a relief and at other times it can feel difficult; sometimes even both at the same time. Either way, I believe that counselling can help and that together we can find ways forward that work for you.
Call me for an informal chat or to find out how counselling can help you or your child or visit my website, www.mirralitycounselling.co.uk for more information.

Starting counselling can feel like big step and sometimes it can help to know what to expect from the first session. The first time we meet can be used to get to know each other a little better and to find out if we are both comfortable working together. We can use this time to decide if I am the right counsellor for you. We will go over a counselling agreement which outlines what we can expect from each other and the practical details of counselling including confidentiality and cancellations.
