Deborah Kellaway BSc (Hons) Psychology, Dip (Couns), MBACP, MBPsS.
Whilst we may be able to overcome some difficult times in our lives, others may overwhelm us to such an extent we struggle to see a way past them. Issues you may be facing could be anxiety, depression, stress, relationship problems, past childhood abuse, feeling unable to move forward.
If you are facing difficulties at the moment please do get in touch to see if counselling or coaching can help. Whether difficulties are a result of your past or something more current, working with an experienced, qualified professional can prove beneficial.
I offer a safe, confidential space to work through the issues that are preventing you from achieving the life you want to live. I will work with you to gain insight and understanding into your current situation that is preventing you from moving in a positive direction and help you to find ways in taking those positive steps to where you want to be.
Counselling and coaching can help you understand more about yourself and become more aware about why you do what you do or feel what you feel.
As a Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP number 728000), I follow their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
HOW I WORK
I work as an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor, which means that I am trained using Person-Centred, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt, as well as being trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I am also a qualified coach. This enables me to work according to your own individual needs rather than a one size ‘fits-all’ approach.
WHAT I OFFER
I am able to offer both short-term and long-term face-to-face counselling on an individual basis.
I offer a free telephone consultation to discuss your needs further and to see if we can work together.
I offer counselling in Highcliffe (with easy access from locations such as Lymington, Christchurch and New Milton) and The Triangle, Bournemouth.
New Horizons Network
I am also co-founder of New Horizons Network which offers counselling for people whatever the budget or difficulty you are experiencing. Please visit www.newhorizonsnetwork.co.uk for more details .

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.

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).
