My name is Deborah Haydock and I am a fully qualified, certified and insured Psychotherapist with over 17 years of experience.

Qualified in Counselling, Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy, Dip Counselling M.B.C.P Dip Hypnopsychotherapy and Advanced cert in Hypnotherapy.


I have specialised in alternative approaches to therapy, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (C.B.T) and Bereavement and Loss issues.  I am a fully insured member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists), bound to their code of ethics and also subject to their complaint procedure. I can help to develop relaxation skills, especially beneficial to those with sleep problems or suffering from anxiety, pain, or panic attacks. Working with clients with phobias, such as fear of heights, and those wishing to change habits, such as smoking, weight loss, and problems associated with alcohol and it’s miss-use.


I have worked in diverse situations including within the Primary Care Trust in Bolton, in Schools with Senior School Pupils and with troubled children, all on a one to one basis. There is a balance between support and challenge, dependant on where you are as an individual. You may need more support than challenge. The person-centered basis of therapy will ensure we go at your pace.  As an integrated psychotherapist, I am able to offer other models of therapy such as C.B.T., Gestalt & Psychoanalysis, all with the consent of you, my client. I have my own personal experiences and life tapestry which I believe deepens my empathy with others and initiated my longing to help individuals by establishing Counselling Care UK.
