About Debbie

Counsellor, Psychotherapist & Clinical Supervisor based in Shrewsbury

I am a qualified counsellor & psychotherapist (MSc Counselling Psychology) with over 18 years’ experience of counselling adults aged 18+. I have worked as a counsellor in a variety of settings including counselling agencies, GP surgeries, insurance companies, private residential homes and within the private sector.

I offer both short term counselling and long-term counselling/psychotherapy, which can be in-person, via video link, telephone or a combination. I am also a Qualified Counselling Supervisor offering individual supervision to student counsellors, qualified counsellors, support workers and other professionals.

I have extensive experience of managing counselling services within the charitable sector including mental health services, alcohol addiction services and sexual trauma services.

I am a member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethical framework for good practice.

I am registered with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and hold an enhanced DBS Certificate.

I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I work flexibly, using a variety of approaches that are tailored specifically to meet your needs. My theoretical base is person centred counselling, which acknowledges the importance of the relationship between client and counsellor, which is why I offer a free introductory telephone call where we can discuss what you would like from counselling, what I offer and to see if we feel comfortable working together.

I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns such as…

Depression
Stress
Anxiety
Self Esteem
Bereavement
Relationship difficulties
Workplace difficulties
Alcohol misuse
Domestic abuse
Sexual trauma
Childhood trauma; sexual, emotional, physical
