I am a fully qualified counsellor having studied person centred counselling to advanced diploma level at Queens University in Belfast. I am also a member of the BACP and abide by the ethical guidelines. I have a keen interest in women's issues and offer one to one counselling as well as group therapy. As a counsellor I regularly see people in distress due to disturbing life circumstances. Such disturbances can often create an unusual or addictive relationship with food, which affects their lives in a very deep way. As a trained practitioner with Understanding Your Eating I am able to facilitate a revolutionary way of helping you understand how you use food and how you can move away from the confines of emotional eating.
Deborah is a qualified counsellor with an advanced Diploma in Counselling and recently gained her BACP Accreditation. She has been practising Counselling for nearly 10 years in both her own private practise and with a number of registered agencies.
After originally studying in Business and Marketing at University and working in the Business Sector I knew I wanted a change of direction and to work more with people. I tried volunteering in a local parenting charity, loved it so much I became their Co-ordinator and then began studying counselling to support me in this work. My passion for counselling and wanting to help people understand why they behave (and eat) the way they do, led me to Julia's Understanding your Eating Programme. I found this insightful yet simple programme offered people in distress a way to understand their eating which led them to a more healthy and enjoyable relationship with food. I trained as a facilitator to enhance my knowledge and am really looking forward to making this programme available to people in N Ireland.
