Deborah Fairlie

Group Therapy Services Director

After many years in personal recovery from addiction, Debbie is passionate about helping clients and their loved ones find a new way of living (without the ball and chain of addiction)

Debbie works closely with Steps Together’s expert therapy staff to ensure that our programmes and counselling services remain responsive and dedicated to helping our clients and their loved ones.

Qualified with Distinction in the counselling and treatment of addiction, and a member of the British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists (BACP), Debbie ensures Steps Together’s extensive inpatient and outpatient therapy services remain dynamic and responsive to the varying needs of our client groups and the changing demands in addiction treatment.

“I have worked in the field of addiction since 2014, and my own passionate interest in addiction stems back over 20 years. I love helping people find their recovery, dignity and self-respect again, and love working closely with families to rebuild, repair and renew their lives” says Debbie 

Debbie has designed a unique range of individual private therapy programmes, and works hard with our teams to ensure these are available and tailored to all our clients and their families if required, ensuring that ongoing treatment and support is available and constantly finding and adapting new methods that will help our clients secure lasting recovery.
