About me

My name is Debra Jarrett and I offer counselling and psychotherapy in Derby. I am a Psychotherapist and accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists (UKCP). My work is guided by their Codes of Ethical Practice.

I have provided counselling and psychotherapy since 2003 and I work with individuals on an open-ended basis for an agreed time period.

My approach to counselling and psychotherapy is primarily based around the therapeutic relationship. I also draw on a range of therapeutic theories such as Person-centred, Psychoanalytic, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and Object Relations psychotherapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked as a counsellor and therapist in a Derby Rape Crisis centre since 2003.

I am a postgraduate member of the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute (SPTI) Nottingham and qualified as a Psychotherapist in 2008.

My Qualifications are:

  • Certificate in Personal-Centred Counselling (Higher Education) - 2004
  • Masters of Art (MA) in Integrative Psychotherapy - 2008

I am committed to my ongoing professional development and regularly attend seminars and workshops with leading trainers from the international field of counselling and psychotherapy. In so doing I am continuously extending my knowledge base and experience and supporting my work with a wider range of client's difficulties.

For example:

  • Problems with significant and close relationships.
  • Self-confidence and low self-esteem difficulties.
  • The impact and effects of childhood trauma and abuse.
  • Difficulties with coping with depression.
  • Coming to terms with a recent loss or bereavement.

I have a specific interest and understanding of DISSOCIATION. This is a coping mechanism used in times of severe trauma. I offer training and workshops to professionals around dissociation, healing and the therapeutic relationship.

I am currently nearing the final stages of completing my first book, "DISSOCIATION: Bringing It Into Awareness". This book is educational for individuals and professionals. It will offer insight into dissociation, how to develop an awareness of dissociation as an individual and as a professional together with giving guidelines around working through dissociation in a positive way.
