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 recognises that everyone is an individual with a different starting point and needs, and will draw on different theories and techniques to meet these unique requirements. She offers clients 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 runs a the counselling service at Staywell (formerly Age Concern Kingston) offering counselling to all ages of clients, who may be dealing with the impact of illness, bereavement, isolation and related issues. She worked for many years with patients, carers and the bereaved at The Mulberry Centre, a cancer support centre attached to West Middlesex Hospital.
