Debra is an engaging and accomplished counsellor who has been working in the field for many years. Debra is focused on understanding her client’s needs, understanding what needs to happen for them to move on from the challenges they face and ultimately thrive. Debra’s philosophy is to provide a wide range of effective psychological strategies and therapies that meet the needs of each individual client and their circumstances. 

Focusing on understanding how people have adapted to their life experiences, Debra supports you in exploring individual and relationship issues impacting your wellbeing, then how you can learn to effect change in these relationships. This process routinely allows clients to move from frustration and reoccurring patterns towards being aware and having the capacity to manage and chance their own circumstances. Debra believes we are all interconnected with our family and wider environment. Meaning what we feel, think, and do ‘ripples’ from our past relationships and throughout the future.  Debra believes that change occurs when we recognize these patterns and learn to make changes leading to personal growth, freedom, and improved relationships.

Debra also incorporates the latest emerging understanding of how people develop and how adverse life events shape peoples reactions, decisions and interpretation of the world around them. Specialising in Systems Theory and Trauma Theory, aid Debra in working collaboratively with her clients.
