Counselling and Psychotherapy - Derby.

My name is Debra Jarrett and I am a psychotherapist offering counselling and psychotherapy in Derby. I welcome you to my web site. I am the author of "Dissociation: Bringing It Into Awareness" which will be published soon. Click the link above to visit the book's page on this website.

You may have reached a point in your life where you are considering counselling and psychotherapy. If you are looking for a counsellor in Derby or a counsellor in the Nottingham area I hope that my web site will be of assistance to you. You will find more information about me, the services that I offer and about counselling and psychotherapy generally.


About Me:

I have provided counselling and psychotherapy in Derby since 2003 and am a postgraduate member of the Sherwood Training Institute (Nottingham). I have worked as a counsellor and therapist in a Derby Rape Crisis Centre.

I work with individuals on an open-ended basis for an agreed time period.

My approach to counselling and psychotherapy is primarily based around the therapeutic relationship. I also draw on a range of therapeutic theories such as Person-centred, Psychoanalytic, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and Object Relations psychotherapy.

You may be considering counselling and psychotherapy because:

  • You suffered emotional, physical or sexual abuse in your childhood.
  • You seek self-understanding and inner peace.
  • You experience feelings of depression frequently and this interferes with your day to day functioning.
  • You are experiencing difficulties in your relationships.
  • You have low self-confidence and would like to live more assertively.
  • You have experienced a bereavement, loss or disturbing change.
  • You experienced a frightening and traumatic experience and are suffering symptoms of post traumatic stress.
  • Your family has a disturbed and troubled history that continues to affect your identity and attitude to life.
  • You find it difficult to cope and feel depressed which affects your daily functioning.
  • You have self harm and suicidal thoughts.
  • You experience eating difficulties.

    It is important to carefully consider what you need from psychotherapy or counselling, and the kind of therapy and therapist most suitable for you. I offer counselling in Derby, psychotherapy in Derby and I live in easy reach from Derby City Centre. I am in easy reach of the M1 Motorway, Derby, Ilkeston, Borrowash, Belper, Burton upon Trent and Nottingham.

    I am an accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists (UKCP). My work is guided by their Codes of Ethical Practice.
