Hello, I’m Deborah
I’ve been a psychologist for 30 years now. I’m a BPS Chartered Psychologist and HCPC Practitioner Psychologist. I’ve worked in the NHS and other public services, in academic research, and in the higher education sector. I’ve worked with people with mental health problems, with physical illness and disability, with educational difficulties, dyslexia, ADHD and I’m sensitive to neurodiverse needs. Every person brings their own unique story and we never stop learning from our clients and creating new ways to explore life.
My primary approach is personal construct psychology. My role as a therapist is to listen carefully to you and to understand your world. I want to know the way you understand yourself, and also the ways you want to change. In therapy we work together so that you can start to feel comfortable with all the different parts of yourself. You will see how you come to feel the way you do. That awareness will help to open up choices for you, giving you more of a sense of control.
I moved last year to the island of Anglesey and I live on the north coast in a beautiful village called Cemaes Bay. The village feels like coming home to me. I love the rugged coastline, the harbour, the simplicity of village life. But it has been quite a journey to get here. Like most people, my life has not been plain sailing and there have been difficulties along the way. We learn through adversity and we should hope never to stop learning, exploring and growing. It is a privilege to work with people who are willing to open up and explore the things that trouble them, and I hope you will choose to work with me.
