Deborah Spencer Dip Coun. Registered Therapist. MBACP

About me

Hello, my name is Debbie.

I am a fully qualified registered counsellor (MBACP) using a Person Centred/Integrative approach which means that I work with other models/theories such as; CBT, Solution Focused, Psychodynamic, Family therapy.

I provide 1.1 counselling for Children, Young people and Adults. As a counsellor I work alongside you, using my experience, knowledge and therapeutic skills to identify the most appropriate intervention to meet your individual needs.

I am a warm and caring counsellor providing brief and long term therapy.

I deliver counselling sessions from my own private practise which is a welcoming, comfortable, peaceful and private room.

My Practise is close to motorways (M62) Train Stations and Bus routes. However, if this is not appropriate for you I will find a venue/location which you are happy with.

My fees are; £35 - £45 depending on therapy delivered, such as; Individual/Family Therapy.

I offer a reduction for College and University Students.

If you are reading this then you have already made the decision to begin the therapeutic process... you have reached your first step!

Thank you so much for reading my profile.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Debbie :)
