About me and my therapy practice

I'm Debs and I'm a warm and supportive individual and couples counsellor and supervisor, presently offering in-person, video or phone call sessions from the privacy of my garden therapy room.

Particularly interested in relationships, trauma, anxiety, loss, and autism/Asperger's, I've been qualified and practising as a person-centred counsellor since 2013. I primarily provide a space where the focus is on the person themselves – who you are and the problems you’re facing, and where you can talk openly and honestly and be really heard; I'm told, sometimes for the very first time.

Being non-directive, I trust in my clients’ capacity to know for themselves their agendas and needs, including how many sessions they may want, whether short or long-term counselling.

I’m a Registered Senior Accredited Member of the BACP - but just as important, as a person I am open, genuine and really down-to-earth, with a warm and welcoming approach.

Individuals £50 (50 mins) - Couples £60 (60 mins)

Supervision: £50 per hour (£75  -90 mins)

About me and my therapy practice

Selecting a supervisor can be daunting when considering our individual characters, approaches, ethics and needs. We don’t all fit perfectly – and I quite like the fact that we don’t, because that edge of difference can sometimes be the most enlightening, creating a spark of real growth and development for both of us if we’re open to it.

I’m not formulaic, rigid or directive, and for me, supervision is not a tick-box exercise – although I’m highly ethical in my practice and personal standards. I just love that we have this time as counsellors where we’re able to reflect on ourselves as practitioners and imperfect humans, and consider our practice, progression, hopes, fears and triumphs in equal or unequal measure, as we decide to use our time. 

Working person-centredly, I focus on you and your experience of yourself in your relationships with clients. I aim to help broaden the scope of your reflections within your work, while remaining supportive and unselfish in sharing from my own experience, if wanted. Working with students, I’m supportive and encouraging while remaining mindful of gaps in knowledge and the anxiety that can come with stepping out as a fledgling counsellor. No one can leapfrog experience, so it can help to feel supported along the way. I just need for you to be open and honest within a reflective process.

A BACP member since 2011, Accredited (2016), Snr Accredited (2021), I work with adult individuals and couples. I’ve worked solely in private practice since September 2016, after starting my business practice in January 2015 and developing it to become my full-time profession. I continue to draw upon two decades of business management experience, as well as specialised working knowledge of the Mental Health Act and mental capacity, and experience of health records keeping and managing confidentiality; all of which informs me and is open for sharing in practice.
