What is

Compassionate Integration?

Compassionate Integration is a therapeutic approach with the intention of creating a deeper sense of wholeness, inner coherence, and self-awareness.

Hi, I’m Debbie

My aim is to create a safe, non-judgemental and compassionate space in which you feel seen, heard and understood, where together we can face challenges showing up in your life. I will invite you to connect and listen to your body, and help shed light and new perspectives on old beliefs and stories. A space where I may be a witness to your experience, a mirror to allow you to truly see yourself, but where your own wisdom and inner guidance leads the healing process.


“Anything that is ´wrong´ with you began as a survival mechanism in childhood”


Compassionate Integration is a profound process of self-inquiry influenced by two main approaches – Compassionate Inquiry by Dr Gabor Maté and Internal Family Systems by Richard Schwartz. It is aimed at healing the root of all trauma – the disconnection from ourselves. 


What we believe about the world and ourselves directly informs our experience. As children we make meaning out of the world that surrounds us, which may not be accurate, but actually helped us survive our environment. Recognising and then challenging these unconscious beliefs helps to update the internal system and integrate our early experiences – an important part of the healing journey.


When we realise our “flaws” are really coping mechanisms, we can start to have compassion for ourselves, offering gratitude to the various protective parts within us who have worked hard to keep us safe, and allow for more of our true Self to shine through.


Memories become trapped within us both in our body and psyche, and unless we integrate them, they may show up as patterns in our lives, calling for our attention. Through this work we get into relationship and hold space for our inner child, offering ourselves the support and emotional attunement we lacked in the past.


Within every being there is a true Self. Our purest essence which embodies qualities such as compassion, creativity, curiosity and confidence. It is who we really are, and when we are connected to it, we respond, rather than react, to life. This work endeavours to create the space within us to be able to identify when we are out of this flow state, to help us to return home with more ease.

integration is helping people

Debbie’s presence is just perfect for me. There is a level of safety and compassion that I have not experienced before. She is attentive and guides me through the sessions using her different tools in a way I can follow and relate. She helps me to trust my feelings. I feel much more alive after the sessions and I am so thankful for that. Through the deep connection we have created it has led me to connect with a part of me that had been abandoned 25 years ago. Never before did I see it so clear, so thank you Debbie, for holding space and hands in this process.
The moment I met Debbie she became my safe space, she is compassionate, empathetic and really listens. I have PTSD, fibromyalgia and am in recovery for 8 years with alcoholism. I have had all conventional treatments over the years with little progress. In the months I have worked with her I have seen an incredible change in the way that I view the world and have a growing love for myself that I have never had before. Truly powerful, healing and life changing. Thank You Debbie.
Debbie is a truly amazing and natural therapist. She always makes me feel completely at ease, truly held and in an utterly safe space. The work is deep and at the same time gentle, intuitive and above all compassionate. I am feeling such positive shifts within myself and my life after just a few sessions. I cannot thank you enough, in gratitude.

“Your conflicts, all the difficult things, the problematic situations in your life are not chance or haphazard. They are actually yours. They are specifically yours, designed specifically for you by a part of you that loves you more than anything else. The part of you that loves you more than anything else has created roadblocks to lead you to yourself. It will go to extreme measures to wake you up, it will make you suffer greatly if you don’t listen. What else can it do? That is its purpose.”
