About me and my therapy practice
Hi there, my name is Deanna, I offer a friendly, confidential, professional counselling service to adults from my cosy, private practice in Rayleigh. My opening hours are week days, evenings and weekends.
Seeking counselling is a big step and can seem overwhelming, I too have been there and know how it feels. I will be there every step of the way to support you and hopefully empower you to make decisions right for you.
A previous client once said to me "you make me feel cared for even when your not talking" which reflects my approach to counselling. If you want to sit there silently that's ok, if you want to cry for the whole session that is fine too, I will sit with you until you feel ready for the next step.
Through my counselling experience and corporate HR background I have a wealth of experience working with a diverse range of clients with different presenting issues. My approach is person centred, which means that you will lead the session at a pace comfortable and tailored for you, as no two clients are the same.
My approach is empathic, non-judgemental and adheres to the ethical framework of the BACP.
My counselling experience has been gained at the following types of organisation:
- - Mental Health Charity
- - Hospice
- - Housing Association
- - Secondary School
- To get started
Please call, email or text me to arrange a FREE no obligation 15 minute telephone consultation to discuss your needs and ascertain what you would like to achieve and if counselling with me is right for you.
If all goes well we arrange your first session. Prepayment is required to secure the booking.
At the first session, we agree how we will work together and an assessment is carried out. Sessions are usually held weekly and agreed at the end of each session for the following week.
