Deirdre Frondigoun MBACP Dip Counselling
I am a counsellor based in central Belfast. Everyone is an individual and I walk with people on their journey to become more self-aware. I have supported individuals with; relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, addiction and various other issues.
Previous clients have said; 'I feel I know myself now! thank you!'
' I have my life back!'
' Alcohol had been ruling my life - now I do!'
You do not have to struggle alone - I can support you through difficult times.
Are struggling with anxiety?
Are you having relationship difficulties with your family?
Counselling can help!
The Source Wellbeing Centre is a very central location within walking distance of the city and easily accessed by car or bus.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have attained a BA in Psychology and Social Policy (2004), a Diploma in Counselling(2007) and a Diploma in Management Studies (2012).
I have experience working with many individuals with varying issues. These often were underlying substance misuse. I have worked from April 2008 til May 2013 for a treatment provider for substance misuse in Kent. Prior to this I worked in Belfast in a therapeutic community for individuals with mental health issues.
My experiences in both these organisations has given me the experience of working with various issues. My specialism is addiction as that has been my main focus for the past five plus years but as I have mentioned when this is unraveled a number of underlying issues can be discovered.

Addiction can ruin your life!
I have seen people lose everything through addiction and I have also been privileged to see some of these people re-gain their families and re-build relationships with loved ones. It is never too late to make that decision to take control of your life. Counselling is an important part of that journey, Counselling gives you that safe space to be completely honest, not to be judged and to gain the strength to achieve the goals you set for yourself.
