Why would you need counselling?
Some reasons to seek out counselling could be:
You’ve come to a crossroads in your life, and not sure which way to turn
You have reached a crisis point, and need to get back into balance again to understand what has happened
Something may be preventing you from really living life to your full potential and you want to find a way to move forward
You may have experienced a loss, and need support whilst coming to terms with it
You may be suffering from physical complaints that need your attention, and which may be connected to deeper issues
You may be feeling stressed, confused, or anxious and unsure why
Or you just feel ‘off’ and want someone neutral to talk it through with
About me and my work.
Hi I’m Deb. I am a fully trained, insured and BACP registered therapist and have been qualified for 17 years. During lockdown I moved my practice from Gloucestershire in the UK to the Costa del Sol, and now work in private practice in Marbella, offering face to face and online therapy to individuals and couples.
I am a trained sexual violence and abuse therapist and also experienced in addictions, relationship issues, depression and anxiety, eating disorders and bereavement and loss, amongst other emotional, mental and physical problems.
My work follows the strict code of ethics outlined by the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and my work is supervised on a monthly basis to offer a safe and professional service for you.
How my counselling sessions work...
I offer a free 30 minute introductory session by zoom. We use this time to talk through what has brought you to therapy and we can decide if my therapy is right for you. I hold my sessions either face to face in Marbella, or online at an agreed time. The sessions are 50 minutes long and we will initially meet weekly.
We can use platforms such as Zoom or Skype to do our online sessions. If you find technology daunting, then please do not worry as I can talk you through downloading the applications or if all else fails we can use WhatsApp video or the old fashioned telephone.
We may also be joined in the sessions with 'Eva' my lovely cockapoo, mostly sleeping soundly as we work. If you are uncomfortable with dogs, then please do let me know and other arrangements can be made for her.
