Debbie has guided me through my anxiety and given me the tools to keep this under control. I could not thank her enough for our time together. She has been so patient, kind, understanding, warm and empathetic. I instantly felt comfortable from our very first session and felt supported through the process. She helped me find the strength and insight that i never thought I had. I am so grateful I found her and I would highly recommend her to anyone.

"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"
Written on Mar 21, 2023 after therapy with Deborah for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and coping with life changes
"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."
Written on Jan 29, 2023 after therapy with Deborah for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem
"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 When I first started counselling I was a shell of a person, withdrawn from friends and family, anxious to see anyone and going through a tough break up.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 targeted 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!"
