Absolutely incredible. Honest yet compassionate at the same time. Can tell Deborah has a lot of experience in what she does and it comes through in every session. Cannot recommend her enough

I’m sad to be writing this as it means my time with Debbie has come to an end, but I can’t thank her enough for the support she has provided me with to change my perception, reframe my thinking and believe in myself. Debbie was never once judgemental, she accepted me and my ways of thinking, and never once questioned why I’d came to perceive situations this way. She just worked through them with me, slowly but with encouragement, to reframe how I felt and how to deal with these going forward. Debbie used a variety of short assessments and questionnaires to establish where I needed support and how we worked to achieving my goals. It’s important to be open minded to these, as it really allowed us to have a shared understanding of how we move forward. Thanks Debbie for all your help.

Through our sessions Deborah has given me the strength to get my life back. When I first started counselling I was a shell of a person, withdrawn from friends and family, anxious to see anyone and going through a tough break up. Deborah's warm and caring attitude along with targetted support sessions have given me the strength and independence I needed to regain happiness again. I cannot recommend Deborah more highly to anyone who is considering counselling. She helped me through my darkest times and for that I will forever be grateful. Thank you!

My sessions with Debbie so far have been like a much needed warm hug, Debbie has a beautiful kind energy that feels safe and very comforting and I already know I’m going to look forward to working with her.

Deborah is a warm, genuine counsellor. She is supportive and truly listens and understands.
I look forward to speaking with her every week as she makes me feel heard which in turn, makes me feel better after every session.
Thank you Deborah :)
