Deborah Oktar-Campbell - MSc Counselling - MBACP (Reg)

Broughshane, Antrim, BT42 4JJ

About me

Temporary notice - In response to Covid 19 Pandemic I am offering remote sessions; anyone working in healthcare on the front line will be given discounted sessions.

I am a professional practitioner with almost 30 years experience in the Health Care Setting as a Nurse and a Counsellor since 2010.

I feel very privileged to share the journey with my clients and I understand how challenging making a decision to come for counselling can be. You may be having some mixed feelings about seeking help. I can assure you of a confidential space where I will listen to you in a non-judgemental way.

I offer 1:1 integrative counselling within a contracted relationship. This ensures my practice is ethical and that I keep you safe. I see clients over 18.

I strongly believe the counselling relationship is the key to successful outcomes for my clients. This is built on trust and mutual respect. Therapy offers you space and time to reflect on issues and challenges in your life or to enhance areas in your life that you feel would give you greater fulfillment and lead to happiness. Change in our lives can be smoother if there is someone with the necessary skills to help along the way.

I feel privileged to work with every client and share such a journey to a more positive place.

If you are ready to take this step then please do call me; leave a message if I cannot pick up your call and I will call you back. We can arrange an assessment and you can decide if you would like to proceed with me. There is no minimum or maximum number of sessions you can have as my practice is private and not restricted.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

Our practice is all ground floor with a toilet on site.
