Debra Canning

Reg MBACP, Integrative Counsellor, Couples Counsellor, Crisis worker, Trainer and Supervisor


Welcome to my site. My name is Debra Canning,.  I am a qualified Counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and listed on the BACP voluntary register. I work within the BACP ‘Ethical Framework for Counsellors’, and also the BACP Guidelines for Online Counselling and Psychotherapy. Information relating to both of these documents can be found at: .

I am integrative counsellor and have experience in individual counselling, couples counselling, on-line counselling and supervision. I have  also worked as a crisis worker for victims of rape and sexual abuse. I have worked as a counsellor in schools and the NHS and also for the local council supporting teenagers, as well as having a successful private practice.

I have specialist training in Couple/Relationship Counselling, and also with the Police, Forensic Medical Examiners and experts in the field of childhood sexual abuse and rape and also I hold a Certificate in Filial Training.

I am called upon as the local expert for her local paper for counselling advice.

I also used to be heavily involved in support and advice for TAMBA (Twins And Multiple Birth Association) and INUK (Infertility Network UK)

I work in private practice offering both face to face counselling and online counselling. I have worked with clients across all age ranges, from age 5, up to and beyond retirement. I have the fullest commitment to offering a service which is welcoming to all backgrounds in a supportive and non-discriminatory manner. 

I'm confident that together we can work to help equip you with the necessary tools to help you face and overcome these challenges. Whether you're struggling with debilitating anxiety, overwhelmed by stress, or lackluster relationships, it is important that you know you don't have to be alone in this journey. I have the experience to help you achieve your goals, overcome these struggles, and live a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

I understand no two individuals are the same, and I tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand the root cause of your struggles and address those issues with long-lasting strategies, helping you get closer to the life you've always wanted.
