My Approach

I’m a psychotherapist working both online and face-to face with others. I love my vocation and would describe it myself as a contemporary, integrative therapist; there are many different ways of working and I will always go with what feels ‘right’ for someone, whilst remaining sensitive to their needs and gently encouraging change.
People come to therapy at different times in their lives, for different reasons and don’t always know what to expect from it. I always suggest we use that initial session to notice how we get on, as the most important part is that someone feels comfortable enough with me to go further.

About Me

Deb Challacombe – Biography
Special Interests: Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Bereavement, EMDR.

I became a psychotherapist having spent my previous career training and working with pain and anxiety issues within the National Health Service. During my training, I decided to further specialise in online therapy. Amongst many things, I learned a great deal about how important it is for many people to work in the privacy, comfort and autonomy of their own room, with someone specifically trained to do so.
I’ve been working online for some years now with people from many different cultures, with diverse problems to overcome. My personal experience of working with videoconferencing, is that therapy often successfully completes faster than with face-to-face. It’s a safe space to be oneself and to explore issues.
I’m experienced with most issues, including depression, anxiety, raising self-esteem, phobias, PTSD, OCD, loss and bereavement. I work with the mind-body connection in different ways, so many other issues such as physical pain, IBS, tremors, insomnia and eczema can also be alleviated through therapy. I also use hypnotherapy to help with relaxation and other areas.

I work with

  • Couples
  • Families
  • Groups
  • Individuals

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I’ve worked with anxiety issues, including PTSD, for most of my working life. I can help using a variety of techniques, including EMDR and hypnosis, as well as more traditional methods.
Losing someone we love takes time to adjust to, whether that loss was sudden or expected, such as through a terminal illness. Talking this through with an experienced therapist really can help.
In current times, depression, along with anxiety, are the two most common problems that people seek help for. I’m experienced in these areas... there are ways to work through it, with help.
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing is a powerful tool designed to help people recover from traumatic llll in their life. I’m trained in this and can work with you on video link as well as in my office.
I’m able to call you back almost anywhere in the world, or online. Therapy can be just as effective without being face-to-face.
