Choosing a therapist is a big decision and one that can sometimes feel overwhelming. As an experienced counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor, I am here to help.

With over 20 years experience, including 15 years in the NHS, I know that people seek therapy for many different reasons. Whatever your situation, I look forward to offering you professional, non-judgemental support.

An integrative approach to therapy

Integrative [ˈɪntɪɡrətɪv] adjective – combining two or more things to form an effective unit or system

Your situation is unique to you. I offer a range of different types of therapy meaning that we can work together to identify the most beneficial for you, often combining two or more approaches to achieve the best results.

Counselling & Psychotherapy

Therapy can help treat psychological, emotional, physical and behavioural issues. I have over 20 years experience working in this field.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)

I have 10+ years experience as an accredited EMDR practitioner, including work with children and young people.
What is EMDR?

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

CBT is a well known approach to therapy which helps people look at the connection between thoughts, emotions and behaviours. I am fully trained in CBT techniques including specialised Trauma-Focussed CBT.

Art & Creative Expression

Art and creative approaches to therapy can be particularly beneficial to those struggling to voice how they feel. This can involve methods such as sand tray work, writing and drawing.
I can only describe my time with Deborah as having someone metaphorically take your arm and walk through some of the most difficult aspects of your life/experience with you
