Psychotherapeutic Counselling in Wantage, Oxfordshire

Welcome to Sphera Counselling

My name is Debbie Malin and I am a fully qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor.

I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), and adhere to the ethical framework that is set out by the association.

I have Professional Liability Insurance and a full DBS Certificate.

I am registered with the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) and you can be provided with a copy of the Privacy Policy on request. Get in touch for more information.

My experience covers both private counselling and voluntary work.

The space that I offer is confidential and non-judgemental. We will work together to achieve a clearer understanding of you.

Working with Me

Whilst I work predominantly in a psychodynamic style, our time together will be shaped by your own personal needs.

I will adapt my method accordingly, providing you with an empathic space.

Your journey towards healing can now begin.

Speak in confidence

Counselling offers a safe space where you will be heard with sensitivity. In the therapeutic room, your thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.

Time to reflect

Reflection is a key element of healing; taking the time to explore and understand our thoughts and behaviours. In counselling, the session is devoted to you.

The healing process

There is no miracle cure for the challenges that we face, however, in counselling we work together to gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, guiding you towards a clearer and more positive outlook.

What areas do I cover?




Low self-esteem






Relationship issues

In person counselling sessions take place at Wantage Natural Therapy Centre. Whilst I am based in Wantage, I also see clients from the local community and greater Oxfordshire.
