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.
Please contact me if you would like further information and/or to set up an initial assessment/meeting. This is a chance to discuss how I can help you and to see if you would like to work with me, and you are under no obligation to do so if it doesn't feel right for you.
I offer counselling in Highcliffe, with easy access from locations such as Lymington, Christchurch, Bournemouth, New Milton, etc. I also offer these services in the BH7 area, with easy access from locations such as Bournemouth, Southbourne, Boscombe and Christchurch.
