About me

Do you feel you are struggling with relationships either at work or at home with your partner, family or friends?

Are you having feelings of not being good enough or fear that you’re a failure, or not living up to others expectations of you?  You may feel alone and anxious, which is leaving you feeling unhappy with your life and stuck. Stuck in uncomfortable emotions or intrusive thoughts or stuck in relationships.

If it has, life may feel something like this:

  • Overwhelming
  • Relationships are strained or breaking down
  • It has become difficult to voice what you need
  • You feel anxious, depressed or feel that you have lost sight of your way

I believe that we tend to get stuck for valid reasons. Stress, anxiety, depression, fear, anger, frustration, conflict, confusion, sadness, loneliness, low self-esteem, confidence and energy, relationship difficulties, trust issues, disrupted sleep, numbness, boredom - sometimes their appearance can bring our awareness to something that may need attention.

When we become stuck in our emotions and our intrusive thoughts, it can be hard to see a way out, as if things will never change.

Talking, being heard and understood can be the first step towards exploring what is getting in the way of you getting the life that you want and help gain insights into what may be causing you to feel unhappy and stuck.

I describe my approach to therapy as person-centred, this means that if you come and see me, we will work together to identify, understand and explore the challenges in your life as you see them, and find solutions that feel right and make sense to you.

So, if any of this resonates with you, then you are in the right place……

Contact me today to set up an initial free 15 minute telephone appointment to discuss your individual counselling needs.

Some of the issues I have worked with include but are not limited to:

Anxiety and depression, grief and loss, family and relationship issues, relationship breakdowns, self-esteem issues.

Some of the things clients say after working with me:

"Have had a fantastic experience with Debbi who has helped me with a recent relationship break up and has given me the tools to see a clear path through all my issues.  Debbi is very calming and knows how to navigate the conversation to the places you need to go in order to see clarity in your emotions and feelings. Would highly recommend"

"I've really enjoyed my sessions with Deborah. She's the best therapist I've had. I feel comfortable to talk about anything without being judged.  She also remembers everything I've previously told her (so I don't have to spend time re-explaining my mental state every week). Each session makes me feel better - and have really helped me."

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.
