Counselling Yorkshire Counselling Huddersfield Counselling Halifax psychotherapy "Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them makes life meaningful".

I am Deborah Wortman a qualified psychotherapist/counsellor in Halifax, West Yorkshire. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I am CRB/DBS checked and registered with UKCP the organization that registers qualified therapists.

In addition to counselling and psychotherapy I offer clinical supervision for qualified and trainee counsellors and therapists.

Brighouse Counselling and Psychotherapy is pleased to introduce to the practice a new service providing Psychosexual (sex) Therapy though a specialist practitioner Michelle Shively Harris (See her page)

Does life feel like its getting on top of you and would you like to have the opportunity to change things and be more focused in your wants, needs and relationships.

Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?
... to explore your thoughts and feelings
... to improve the quality of your life

I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

This can be on a private basis or in some instances arranged through employers as part of their Employment Assistance Program.

I also offer counselling to young people aged 13 -18 years, for which I have received specialist training. When considering a counsellor for a young person it is important that the counsellor has had specific training in working with them and dealing with issues arising during adolescence.
