Deborah Morley

Therapeutic Counsellor, CPCAB, BACP, Dip TC, BSc (Hons)

About me

I am a professionally qualified, experienced therapeutic counsellor offering counselling for a range of emotional problems.

In counselling, I offer a safe, confidential space where you can talk about things and I will listen with warmth and empathy and without judgement. I can support you in a wide range of emotional difficulties such as depression, bereavement, anxiety, stress, relationship problems and any other area where you are experiencing challenges or are unsure of how to proceed. 

My therapy room is in Southfields, easily accessible opposite the train station. There is also free parking in the immediate area if you are driving. I can also offer remote counselling by telephone or online. I am available in the daytime and the evenings and can offer sessions on Saturdays if that is helpful.

I am happy to offer a free initial consultation where we can explore your needs and how we may address them. This is helpful before committing to a counselling relationship.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

As a humanistic counsellor, it is my belief that each of us, as unique individuals, have our own way of understanding the world and our place in it. I believe that each of us knows what we need in order to be content and fulfilled, but that we may not be able to see a clear path towards that. 

You may be seeking counselling for a specific reason such as bereavement or a relationship breakdown. You may be struggling with an inner problem such as anxiety, stress, depression or a lack of self-confidence or self-esteem. Maybe you have a big decision to make and don't know where to start. Or it may be that you just don't feel 'right' and feel you could be happier, be living a better life but aren't sure where to begin.

Whatever has brought you here is the first step on a new path to prioritising your emotional well-being. I will work with you from a person-centred approach on your journey. Please call or email me to talk about how we can best do this together.
