About me and my therapy practice
Hello I’m Debra. Whatever it is you are having difficulty with in your life at this moment, I offer non-judgemental support to explore it with you. I understand it can feel scary to think about contacting and talking to someone and I would hope to help you feel okay and safe in that first initial chat. We can work out together whether I am the right therapist for you.
Counselling and psychotherapy can offer support for many issues including feelings of anxiety, low mood, bereavement or loss, trauma, struggling with relationships, life transitions, or feeling empty in life. Therapy can help you to explore ‘here and now’ issues or things that have been troubling you for a long time.
I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor. I offer both short and long term therapy and we can discuss together what feels right you. As an integrative therapist I have a range of skills that I use to support you, considering your unique needs and individuality, and enabling you to achieve what you would like from therapy.
I also offer therapy for counselling students at a reduced rate. Please contact me for details.
I have worked in the charity sector as well as in Primary and Secondary Mental Health NHS services.
I have trained in adult therapy and hold a MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy. I have also trained in Couples Therapy.
My first session
The first appointment is via Zoom and is a short introductory chat which is free. It will give you a chance to ask questions about therapy, to see if you are comfortable with me and my style of therapy. It is important that you find the right therapist for yourself.
If we agree that I’m the right therapist for you we will organise together your first appointment face to face in my room in Stockton.
