Training, qualifications & experience

Qualified in Counselling, Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy, Dip Counselling M.B.C.P Dip Hypnopsychotherapy and Advanced Certificate in Hypnotherapy.Qualified in Counselling,

I offer a balance between support and challenge, dependent on where you are as an individual. You may need more support than challenge. The person-centered basis of therapy will ensure we go at your pace. As an integrated therapist, I am able to offer other models of therapy such as C.B.T., Gestalt & Psychoanalysis with the consent of you, my client.

I have specialised in alternative approaches to therapy, including Cognitive Behavioural TheraIpy (C.B.T) and Bereavement and Loss issues. I am a fully insured member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists), bound to their code of ethics and also subject to their complaint procedure.

I have my own personal experiences and life tapestry which I believe deepens my empathy with others and initiated my longing to help individuals by establishing Counselling Care UK.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have lots of experience in working with children and young people, and have seen an increase in clients from these groups struggling with anxiety, burn out, stress and panic. If you, or your child is looking for support  in these areas don’t hesitate to get in touch. It really can be a huge benefit to get independent help rather than struggle alone. 
Burn out and chronic illness too are on the increase in recent months. Get support and guidance where you need it. Leaving things can make it worse, so get in touch, have a chat and see how you feel about arranging to meet up.

                         Recommendations From Past/ Current Clients

Contented of Bolton

"I contacted Deborah during a difficult time in my life. At our first meeting I was very nervous about what to expect, but soon realised that there was nothing to be afraid of. She is a genuine and caring person, and quickly created an environment in which I felt safe to talk openly - something that I had never experienced before.

Deborah has really supported, encouraged and challenged me, always knowing which of these is required and when. She has a unique ability to put a positive perspective on problems and issues. I don’t know where I would be without her, and can’t recommend her highly enough."                                                             


Helped & Happier of Preston

Deborah is a kind hearted woman, she has the ability to not only listen but she actually hears what you have to say and you don't find that characteristic in many people. She is honest, caring and genuine in what she does as a counsellor.

There is Light & Hope at The End of The Tunnel From Bolton

I arrived to see Debra feeling that I was at the end of my resources, I was exhausted, in pain and more afraid of staying where I was than taking the step to engage in the then unknown.
It's a very different place I write from, I still have pain but now it's creative, meaningful and the vehicle to the change I palpably see in myself. I said one day in a session that I felt she was performing surgery on me as something happens in the room and I come away transformed. I have to do my part and work really hard at this, it's not easy and she doesn'tcollude nor enable me but I find being consistently challenged to grow toward increasing freedom is priceless.
I highly recommend Debra to you, she's the real deal,it's support and healing in action.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
