About our Therapist
Deborah is a fully qualified integrative counsellor. She believes that the relationship between the counsellor and client is key to the success of the counselling. She offers a warm, supportive and non-judgemental approach which is based on respect that everyone she sees is an individual with a different starting point and needs. As an integrative counsellor she draws on different theories and techniques to meet these requirements. All of her clients are offered a safe environment to explore their concerns, with confidentiality underpinning all communications.
Deborah believes that we all have the capability within us to change direction and to overcome problems but sometimes we need support and a helping hand to enable us to recognise our potential.
Deborah is a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and, as such, works within their ethical framework and guidelines.
As well as seeing clients in private practice, Deborah works with older clients (aged 65+) and their families at Staywell (formerly Age Concern Kingston) and on a voluntary basis with patients, carers and the bereaved at The Mulberry Centre, a cancer support centre attached to West Middlesex Hospital.
Deborah recognises that most people do not bring issues that can be easily defined as a single category, however some of the areas she works with include, relationships, family, grief, loss, bereavement, divorce, separation, loneliness and isolation, anxiety, stress, coping with the emotional impact of illness as a patient or carer, ageing, dealing with older age as an individual or carer.
