Debra Fletcher Counsellor BA (Hons) MBACP
Hello and welcome, my aim is to offer you a place in which to be you. I understand the difficulties of explaining how you are feeling to those around you, who are just not getting the 'whole' you, being told to just deal with life events, when really you just want to curl up and shut away.
I work from a person centred approach and believe as individuals all our experiences are unique, and we all most importantly have the potential to make the changes in our lives, we just have to be given that opportunity. Within a safe non judgmental environment I can offer you the space to explore and share what is troubling you whilst developing a deeper understanding and acceptance of yourself in the process.
Counselling as a process may not always seem easy, it can feel like a roller coaster of emotions with you being it’s passenger. As your counsellor, I will there alongside you through the challenges you are experiencing, and facing in life, and together we will face what is troubling you at the pace you decide.

As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I adhere to their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Counselling as an individual process differs for everyone, therefore I offer flexibility whether this be weekly or not, this is something we can discuss. Sessions are Forty pounds, concessions available upon request.
