I am an experienced Gay male therapist and particularly welcome enquiries from male clients and clients within the LGBTQ + community. Difference denied is difference devalued, there are many cultural and societal factors that can cause psychological distress for people, it is important that these can be sensitively understood and worked with in therapy with someone who has training & experience of diversity. I am a strong advocate for Men's mental health by challenging and reducing stigma around gender stereotypes. I offer a safe supportive space enabling you to explore your current difficulties and issues, whatever they may be.

I am very happy to work with clients from LGBTQ communities.
Sometimes the challenges that we face become too much. Maybe you experienced or witnessed violence or abuse at any time in your life. Perhaps you are feeling anxious, angry, stressed, depressed, rageful, scared or in despair. I offer a warm and confidential space in which we can explore together and try to resolve your problems. My practice is anti-oppressive and anti-racist, and I believe that we can be damaged by the expectations of the world around us as well as by our earliest and most intimate relationships. Do get in touch and let's see together how I can help you make the changes you desire.

Finding a therapist and taking part in counselling can be a stressful process. You may be wish to work on a specific issue, event or problem in your life, or perhaps you are negotiating a major change or period of anxiety or depression. I believe everyone has the innate capacity to reach their full potential, but sometimes difficult experiences and relationships can stifle growth. I offer you a safe, empathic, and reflective space in which to negotiate blocks in your life, develop your self-esteem, and give you the confidence to follow your path.

You may seek therapeutic support for many reasons especially when life throws you a curved ball. Bereavement or loss, trauma, anxiety and depression, feeling trapped, overwhelmed and disturbed sleep can all affect us in different ways. When negative thought patterns, behaviours and emotions become too intense it can affect daily life and impact relationships. I offer emotional support that is impartial and non-judgemental, together we will explore the context for your emotions by identifying the underlying causes and make real progress towards your goals in a sensitive way. My name is Debbie and I am an Integrative Psychotherapist.

We try and work slightly differently to help build a space that feels comfortable for you. As well as supporting clients with their general wellbeing and a range of mental health difficulties, some of our more specialist areas included working with neurodiversity (i.e. Autism, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder - ADHD, Pathological Demand Avoidance - PDA, school refusal, eating difficulties, BPD, and bereavement.

Hello and welcome. People access therapy for a variety of different reasons. You may have an area of your life that you are keen to explore, or perhaps you are less sure and that's ok too. Often the therapeutic relationship can offer new perspectives or awareness - perhaps new potentials or the rediscovery of something 'lost'. We are all unique I will work with you in a way that honours your experiences and respects you as an individual - supporting you to find your own direction and resources.

Troubled minds can be hard to sooth. Feelings can seem too much to bear. Managing yourself and life may become increasingly demanding, and the feelings of purpose, ease and joy can get squeezed out. Or these feelings seem to disappear overnight and you say, something is missing! Or perhaps you find you have dropped down a hole, the one you keep scrambling from. Maybe you feel unable to control things. Frustrations may arise. Clinically significant issues can become a problem. Anxieties, depressions, sadness, anger, prolonged grief, addictions, loss of energy and motivation, even of sense of self, and physical conditions can result.

Sometimes life events can overwhelm us, leaving us floundering and wondering which way to turn. I won't ask "What's wrong with you?" I will ask, "What's happened to you?" I will listen attentively and without judging you, while you tell your story. By working collaboratively, we can explore the thoughts and feelings you need to share. I am a person centred therapeutic counsellor. For me this means I trust that only you know what’s best for you at this time and in these circumstances. Working together we will move at your pace on a unique journey. I will offer you a space where I hope you feel you can be heard.
