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

Hello, I am Deborah Wortman, welcome to Brighouse Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I am a highly experienced therapist based in Halifax and have been practising since 2001. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. Finding a connection and developing a therapeutic relationship are extremely important to me when working with clients.

Mutual respect and an understanding of the clients experiences, their thinking, feelings and behaviour enables me to work with each client in an individual and personalised manner.

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.

Areas that I work :

  • Emotional turmoil
  • Relationships
  • Panic Attacks
  • Anxiety
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder (e.g. Aspergers).
  • Depression / Low mood
  • Bereavement and Loss
  • Self Esteem and Confidence
  • Redundancy
  • Addiction
  • Life Challenges

    I offer counselling for individuals, couples and young people aged 12-18 years; for specific issues and more long term psychotherapy.

    I have developed specific knowledge and skills for working with clients on the autistic spectrum and the unique challenges and skills needed in working with this interesting and rewarding client group. (please refer to the Autism Spectrum Counselling section for more details)
    Brighouse Counselling and Psychotherapy is in Halifax, West Yorkshire, and within easy reach of Leeds, Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and the M62 corridor in general. The practice is 10 minutes away from the M62 and is close to the centre of Halifax and Calderdale Royal Infirmary, parking is available on the road.

    The practice has been specifically set up to offer a calm space in which to reflect, away from the pressures of daily life, with a comfortably furnished therapy room.

    However I also offer Skype sessions, and currently have a number of both international clients and more distant UK clients.
