Deborah Osman BSC (Hons) in Systemic Therapy MBACP (registered)
In response to the current COVID-19 situation in the UK, I am offering online (zoom or skype) and telephone sessions to all current and new clients to ensure therapy can continues without any interruptions.
I’m an experienced and qualified counsellor and I offer a warm therapeutic service. My aim is to create a relaxed and non-judgmental environment in which you feel comfortable and safe enough to take that first step in seeking support or guidance in their lives.
Counselling provides the space to reflect on your situation with someone who is not personally involved and who does not judge or criticise: giving you the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings and in doing so find solutions that you are comfortable with. Counselling is a collaborative process and we go at a pace that suits you. Each session will last 50 minutes and what we talk about is confidential and entirely up to you.
If you feel you’d like to work with me, then please get in contact – We can arrange a telephone consultation free of charge, and if agreed, an initial appointment. This is a good opportunity for us to get an understanding of one another, and decide if we would like to start working together.

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.
