Rebecca Appleton MBACP, UKCP registered Psychotherapist and Supervisor
0208 533 1932 / 07415 504 733
I am an integrative Psychotherapist which means my approach draws upon the theories and skills of four different models of counselling and psychotherapy: Psychodynamic, Person centered, Solution Focused and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
I believe that each individual’s life is unique and each individual has ways in which they cope with life's demands, relationships and stresses from both the past and also the present.
Accessing counselling and sharing or talking about life's challenges can feel deeply personal and due to this more often than not, people tend to experience some ambivialance about seeking professional support.
With holding in mind that each individual has different ways of coping and also the possible ambivalence of seeking support. I aim to provide a safe, non judgmental and confidential space to work collaboratively in exploring current thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Analysis of thoughts feelings and behaviours can enable a deeper understanding and further insight into your current difficulties. With this new understanding we will develop ways in which you can move forward, into more balanced emotional experiences and where necessary life changes.
I work with the ‘here and now’ or 'historical' issues and provide short, mid or long term counselling and psychotherapy. The course of therapy suitable to each individuals presentation will be discussed and agreed in the first session.
