About me

Hi I'm Debbie, a caring and very approachable experienced relational counsellor.

I provide an authentic therapeutic space that is warm, welcoming, confidential and non-judgemental. I strive to make my clients feel comfortable and safe, as I believe the rapport and connection is important between us.

From experience, this enables my clients to feel relaxed quicker, which helps them to reflect on their difficulties. This leads to finding new ways of working, to improve overall wellbeing which is unique to you and your individual needs.

Working relationally from a person centred approach which underpins my practice. I integrate different theories such as CBT, solution focused, TA, Gestalt mindfulness and creatively if required to help you resolve what ever is troubling you.

Taking that first step.

I understand how difficult it can be to try find help when you are really struggling. It takes courage and strength to make that first step to call someone.

So, if you decide to work with me, I can assure you that we will work at a pace and depth that feels right for you allowing you to resolve issues, anything from stress anxiety, bullying, bereavement, domestic violence, self harm, family and relationships to name a few.

Please give me a call with any questions, or why not pop me an email, I look forward to your contact. I offer short and long term therapy to suit your needs.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
