Hello and a warm welcome to my website. More often known as Debs, I’m a qualified adult and couples counsellor and counselling supervisor practising from my quiet and private garden therapy room in Wingerworth, close to Chesterfield in beautiful Derbyshire.

I have experience of working with an extensive range of life’s issues; including loss and bereavement, relationship problems, separation and divorce, historical and current domestic, sexual and emotional abuse, anxiety, depression, bullying, low self-esteem, body and image concerns, lack of motivation and direction, workplace issues, the effects of traumatic events, coping with physical and mental health issues, self harm and suicidal thoughts, autism/Asperger’s.

As a professional, I’m a Senior Accredited Member of the National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS) – but just as important, as a person I am open, genuine and really down-to-earth, with a warm and welcoming approach. Feel free to take a look around, and I hope my site is helpful in your search for a counsellor or counselling supervisor. If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

My counselling approach is person-centred, formed on a therapeutic relationship that is caring, genuine and non-judgemental.

Debra Nash - Councillor

I provide counselling for adult individuals and couples, and clinical supervision for trainee and qualified counsellors.

The therapy I offer helps you to explore your problems as you talk, in a safe and trusted environment.

My Therapy and Me

Qualified and practising as a person-centred counsellor, I primarily provide a space where the focus is on you – who you are and the problems you’re facing – and where you can talk openly and honestly and be really heard; I’m told sometimes for the very first time.

The Person Centred Approach is developed from the work of American psychologist, Carl R Rogers, and I believe in his premise that working collaboratively to establish the optimum relationship – based on trust, warmth, acceptance and non-judgement – facilitates a natural healing process and growth. I also trust that people are their own best experts, and that everyone has a natural survival tendency, so they will always seek to develop and be the best they can be for themselves if the right conditions are in place.

Being non-directive in principle, I trust in your capacity to know for yourself how many sessions you may want, and I’m able to offer both short and long-term counselling based upon individual needs.
