Deborah Malcolm MBACP
Life pressures and difficult situations may bring about anxiety, stress and depression. Feeling different, misunderstood or wanting something to change can create unhappiness or anger.
I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) offering short or long-term counselling to individuals over 16 years of age.
I offer a holistic way of working, exploring how the mind and body are connected by using different techniques and approaches such as Person Centred- looking at what's going on for you in the 'here and now'. Psychodynamic - helping you to find patterns in your emotions, thoughts and beliefs in order to gain insight into your current self or Existential - exploring the what and why questions we ask ourselves about the meaning of life. I may also suggest using creative tools, such as mindfulness or visualisation. Everyone is unique and by the end of our therapeutic relationship you will leave feeling lighter, empowered and more confident.
My areas of expertise include anxiety and depression, low self- esteem, relationship difficulties, trauma and other issues. I also have a huge interest in the area of diet and nutrition. I will provide a warm, safe and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and any root causes that may have led you to become ‘stuck’ or lose a sense of who you are.
We will work closely together for 50 minutes usually once a week, as research shows that's the way therapy works best!

I work at two locations:
East London - £50 for a 50 minute session
Liverpool Street, EC2M - £60 for a 50 minute session
I also offer a reduced rate for students.
When we meet for our initial appointment it is important that we both feel we can work with each other. Research shows ‘the relationship is the therapy.’ Our working relationship is important and we need to make sure it is right. Once we have agreed to work together, I would usually offer an initial series of 6 sessions to begin the therapy.
