About me

Hi, my name is Deirdre and I help people to change unhelpful patterns of behaviour or thinking causing anxiety if you are struggling please call 07919446685.

As a qualified counsellor and anxiety coach, with many years experience in formal counselling, I am able to offer individual sessions and online treatment programmes via Zoom.

Many people with anxiety feel as if they are ‘going mad’ or as if something is wrong with them. Whether it’s the physically symptoms of anxiety, knot in the stomach, sweating or feeling hot, the fear of blushing, rapid breathing, chaotic mind, difficulty concentrating. Or the emotions of worry, nervousness or panic.

Once we understand anxiety, we are more in control of it.

Research has shown that the first step is to learn more about the condition and how other people have overcome it.

I am one of the very few therapists that has experienced and overcome anxiety myself many years ago. I fully understand how debilitating it can be to suffer with extreme fear but I also know how great it feels to experience freedom when cured. I now use my own knowledge and personal experience to help others experience the benefits of counselling and coaching.

Think well, do well, be well.

I would really like to help you further please do contact me by phone or email. Due to the recent lockdown I am working online only by zoom, and I am happy to discuss with you how these sessions work.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
