About me and my therapy practice
Hello my name is Deborah and welcome to my profile.
As an experienced BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, I work in private practice in Lewes and am committed to creating a safe, comfortable and confidential space that enables you to explore your situation freely with permission to work at your own pace.
I would describe my way of working as collaborative, compassionate, encouraging and authentic; supporting you to develop your own awareness and resourcing skills to make more effective and conscious choices in your life.
I work with individuals, couples and groups. Over the years, I have trained in a number of person centred, humanistic modalities that includes Mindfulness, Gestalt, Psychosynthesis and Transactional Analysis. This enables me to work with flexibility and creativity as a way of honouring your own needs and preferences.
My relational and couple's work is informed and supported by my training in EFT (Emotional Focused Couple's Therapy) and FIRO (Fundamental Relationships Orientation), which offers a valuable map to navigate our relationships and to understand the ways in which our unmet Attachment needs and longings influence our unconscious and habitual patterns of relating to one another. My role is to support you to bring the unconscious into the conscious as a way moving from a place of stuckness and distress into deeper connection and trust.
If you are struggling to find balance in your life as a result of a recent or past trauma, I am trained in a number of research based approaches that includes EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing).
I am a certified Mindfulness trainer through The Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University. I offer Mindfulness based courses for stress and well being for individuals, couples and groups and integrate mindfulness into my therapy work in a collaborative and creative way.
