What Others are Saying...
"Deborah is an incisive counsellor. Her compassionate approach puts you at ease and her insights help you to work through the issues that are holding you back. Her wealth of knowledge and experience are obvious very quickly, which gives you the confidence that she has an approach that will work for you. I gained a completely different perspective on one situation within a matter of minutes and can't recommend her more highly." ~ Haley Jones PhD, ACU
"The work that Deborah did for me over only four treatments was life changing. She was able to locate, and help me let go of a very deep trauma that was having an affect on my daily interactions in my social life. This major trauma was 20 years old, and even though I was able to function fine, it was holding me back in ways that I wasn't aware of until I was able to let go of it in the guided and understanding environment that Deborah offered. Once I had done this, I noticed an immediate change in how I communicated with others. I highly recommend counselling with Deborah if you would like to make some positive changes to your life and how you may interact with others." ~ M.S., 36
"...In many ways I felt my current business opportunities fell in my lap but I should give us both more credit than that. Clearly you helped me gain enough confidence to negotiate [the outcome I wanted]... and whilst I'm hardly a guru at confrontation now, I can honestly say I am less concerned about confrontation with others when it occurs.
Upon reflection, it is very easy to draw a correlation between the things we discussed and many of the decisions I have made since. So thanks again on all fronts for the positive impact you've had on my life." ~ M.D., 47
"Counselling has been very helpful. We have been able to discuss many issues in a calm and non-confrontational environment. We have also been able to agree on actions and a way forward for areas that have been a stumbling block for us for many years. We like Deborah and find her very professional and balanced." ~ E. & C.R., 38
"I feel so much better for my regular visits with Deborah. I feel much more relaxed. I was having emotional reactions to things associated with my husband’s daughter from a previous relationship and dealing with the split family situation. Logically I understood the situations but they made me feel very sad and unhappy. Through therapy with Deborah I have been able to understand why I was feeling that way and work to relieve the negative emotions by breaking down and better understanding similar and very early situations where these beliefs and emotions were first developed." ~ A.T., 31.
"I am so glad I went to see Deborah when I did. I was struggling through a relationship and had been doing so for a long time. I had lots of friends and family for support which helped but I needed something a little more to give me the strength to get out of it. Deborah has both the theoretical knowledge and practical experience, making her able to understand the situation from a clinical but also personal level - making the process more valuable and effective. I instantly felt comfortable and able to speak my mind and I felt I was not being judged or analysed, rather she was helping me draw my own conclusions and get things clear in my mind - that clarity allowed me to walk away from a destructive relationship, and I am so glad I did. I think had I not seen her, it would have taken much longer to finally get the clarity to leave. Each psychologist has a very different style and Deborah strikes the balance between exploring thoughts, being understanding, but also challenging destructive thinking and helping you see how you can help yourself. I have been back several times to Deborah and will continue to do so if life presents further challenges that I need that little bit more support on." ~ I.R., 24
"I would not of coped without counselling. It put a lot of things in perspective for me. Helped me to deal with my emotions and how to deal with the situations which eventuated. I thank Deborah very much for assisting me at such a difficult time in my life. She was very professional and logical and did put things into perspective for me." ~ B.T., 33
