Deborah Bennett

Deborah is an Edinburgh based counsellor, qualified and registered to work with couples and individuals. As well as working with a wide range of issues, she has specialist qualifications in relationships counselling and bereavement (including support to clients who have lost pets).

We all develop strong coping mechanisms as we try to deal with what life throws at us, but sometimes these can also prevent us moving forward. This can make us angry, withdrawn, frightened and defensive – powerful emotions that stop us making good choices. So Deborah offers a supportive and confidential environment in which you can attempt to explore thoughts and feelings that you find distressing, and discover new strengths and resources within yourself to help you reach your full potential. You hold the answers and working alongside Deborah, you will discover them.
