Buxton Counselling Service; Debbie Withers MSc MBACP (Accred.)

Buxton, High Peak, SK17
07970 670138 07970 670138 Registered / Accredited

I provide a free-of-charge initial consultation, to prospective supervisees, at my Buxton practice. I am experienced in helping students/counsellors to work towards successful completion of their counselling training and/or accreditation. 

I am an integrative counselling supervisor. In my private practice, I provide supportive and respectful supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors & psychotherapists working with a range of models including Psychodynamic, Humanistic, CBT, Integrative and Eclectic approaches. I am able to vary my approach to suit the needs of my supervisees, for example, utilising creative methods and considering processes such as transference, counter-transference and parallel process. 

I am experienced in report writing for submission to FE/HE institutions and professional body accreditation (ie BACP, ACC) and find that my background as FE/HE lecturer in counselling and psychology is often particularly useful in my supervision work.

I am a qualified and experienced supervisor, having supervised counsellors, psychotherapists and other healthcare professionals since 2008. I am qualified to Masters level (MSc Counselling Psychology) and in Counselling and Psychotherapy Supervision. As an independent practitioner, I am able to provide full support to my supervisees, free from the direct influences of employing organisations and placement providers. I work in accordance with the BACP Ethical Framework, helping my supervisees respond professionally and competently to ethical dilemmas and safe-guarding issues, keeping themselves and their clients safe. I have participated in Supervision CPD on helping supervisees working with suicidal clients and am fully conversant with risk assessment and safety planning methods. My supervisees often inform me they have grown in confidence and assertiveness as a result of our supervisory process.

I have specialist knowledge and experience of practice and supervision in the following areas:

  • Relationship issues
  • Children and Young People
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Eating Disorders
  • Weight/obesity issues
  • Student counselling
  • Work/career issues/Occupational Health

I am happy to supervise via Skype or telephone and have significant experience of working via these modes of communication.

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.
