Deborah Sanders BSc(Hons) Registered Member MBACP (Accred)
Sometimes life can become overwhelming and it is helpful to talk to someone who can help you find your own way. My role as counsellor is not to advise you but to question the way you see things, react to situations or how you are in relationships and, through working together in our therapy, it will hopefully help you to develop new strategies in dealing with these life struggles.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), plus I am MBACP Acredited. I have over 10 years experience and have worked in various agencies with adults and children in charity based agencies, NHS and schools.
My practice offers a comfortable and confidential environment offering long term one-to-one sessions and short term with concessions to low income earners and students. I also offer on line therapy using skype for those who can not make the journey to my practice.
I provide counselling for the following areas:
- Bereavement and loss
- Loss eg relationship break up, family etc
- Abuse, physical, domestic violence, emotional and sexual abuse
- Low self-esteem,
- Stress, anxiety, panic attacks,
- Relationship issues

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
