Mrs Debbie Orfila

Member Status: Accredited

Member No: NCS18-06280

Location: Salisbury

My name is Debbie. I am a friendly, warm and non judgemental counsellor. I can offer you a neutral space in which you can safely explore obstacles in your life that are maybe holding you back. I work with both adults and young people. I work with addiction, depression, anxiety, low self esteem, loss and bereavement, self harm, suicidal thoughts, relationship problems and many other of life's issues that might bring you into counselling.

  • Qualifications & Experience
    My qualifications are accredited by the UK’s Counselling Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body, CPCAB, and I work under the ethical framework of the NCS. The spiritual side of my qualifications were gained through an approved CPCAB spiritual counselling course operated in Glastonbury – the foremost spiritual centre in the UK. I completed my Level 2 in Counselling Skills and Level 3 in Counselling Studies with Sweet Track Counselling and my Diploma in Bournemouth, Redlands Counselling Training, where I studied Integrative Counselling, which is a combination of Person-Centered, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis. I have completed the Certificate of Proficiency with the BACP. An obligation of my training was to work with an independent counsellor and so I have experienced, first hand, what it is like to undergo personal work in a safe and supportive environment. As well as face to face, online and telephone sessions, I also offer walk and talk sessions in a quiet rural location.

    I am also trained in Motivational Enhancement Therapy, a form of motivational interviewing which enables the client to focus on change
