Debra Allonby MBACP (Accred), Counselling Individuals, Couples and Supervision
I am a Registered and Accredited Member of BACP, and have a certificate in Counselling Supervision. I also hold a Certificate in Couples and Relationship Counselling. I have a Diploma in Counselling, Cert Ed (Lecturer), trainer, assessor and verifier awards and NVQ 4 in Management.
I am a Person-Centred, Integrative Counsellor but more importantly I offer you warmth, friendliness, compassion, support and understanding. I have run my own Private Counselling Practice since April 2016. Prior to that I worked as a School and College Counsellor. As your Supervisor, my priority is to support you personally and professionally and assist you in providing a safe, professional, ethical and effective service for your clients.
The first part of each session will be checking out that you are OK and give you time to explore how you are feeling. I will aim to provide you with complete respect for your professional experience and we will work together to identify any areas of concern for you with regard to your clients and the impact upon yourself.
I will provide creative opportunities for you to freely explore your clients' issues and the value and impact of your counselling relationship, in order to help you to facilitate the best possible outcomes for your clients.
I will aim to help you consider a variety of possible ways of helping your clients, whilst ensuring your own self-care. I will work with you to help you ensure that all of your client work meets ethical and safeguarding standards.
We will work together to identify opportunities for your own personal and professional development. I am continuously working on my own professional development and will be very supportive towards you in ensuring your own continuous development.
