Deborah Stirling Dip Coun, MBACP Accred
I am an integratively trained BACP accredited counsellor with many years experience of working with Adults, Children and Young people. I have experience working with a diverse range of presenting issues such as depression, stress, anxiety, bereavement, low self esteem, self harm and anger issues.
I provide one to one counselling, which includes talking and creative therapies, in a safe and non judgemental environment. This allows me to enter into my clients world and explore their issues. By doing so I can gain insight which may help my client make sense of their life at the moment.
I consult from home in North Queensferry and have a Counselling room over looking the river Forth which adds to creating a safe and tranquil atmosphere.
I know the prospect of coming for Counselling can be quite daunting so please feel free to call for an informal chat where we can discuss what you'd like to gain from your Counselling journey.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
