BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapist
MA, BA (Hons) Advanced Diploma in Counselling
Welcome to my website, you have taken a very big step by getting this far. Please feel free to have a look through to learn more about CBT and EMDR and the types of difficulties they can help with, my approach and most importantly whether this might be of benefit to you or someone you care about.
Dealing with difficult issues in a beautiful part of Lancashire, Newchurch in Pendle. Crisis Management Consultancy was established by Debra Whalley in 1995.
Originally I specialised in offering Consultancy, Training and Crisis Interventions services to Individuals and Organisations in the days and weeks following a traumatic event - hostage situations, deaths/serious accidents on site, bombings, armed raids, physical assaults.
I now run my own private therapy practice from home, specialising in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) treating individuals suffering from Anxiety Disorders (PTSD, Panic, Social Anxiety, OCD, Worry, Phobias, Health Anxiety), Low Self Esteem, Depression, Work Related Stress, Bereavement and Relationship issues.
In addition to offering face to face consultations I also provide therapy remotely using Zoom video conferencing technology. This has proven to be invaluable during the COVID 19 pandemic as I navigate my way through the ever changing needs of the crisis and those of my clients.
When I am not working I love spending time with my family and friends. Hobbies include entertaining, cooking, interior design and skiing.
