About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I'm Deborah. I began my academic training in this field as a mature student studying for a degree in Psychology.
I then went on to qualify as an Integrative Counsellor with the Inter-Psyche Training Institute - the only counselling and psychotherapy training centre based within the NHS. I am also a trained Samaritan and volunteered with the organisation for three years prior to training as a counsellor.
I have experience of working, both in private practice and in my voluntary counselling work at a local college, with adults and young adults acoss a wide variety of problems.
As an integrative counsellor, I look at my client as a whole person - their mental, physical and emotional needs. I tailor sessions to be as individual as my client. I believe our past may impact on our present, affecting our ability to move forward in the way we want to and keeping us feeling stuck and overwhelmed. We may feel down, anxious, lost, traumatised. We may be finding it difficult to cope with changes.
I will work with you in a safe, non-judgemental way to explore the difficulties you are facing and work with you towards finding a more positive future. I believe in helping my clients to find and build the resilience to manage and cope if their problems arise again.
