About me

"How incredibly insightful the sessions were with Rebecca and thought provoking which were life changing." Genuine client quote.

Born: Cheltenham, Gloucestershire before moving to the North West in childhood. Genuinely an empathic listener to open up to, with a calming presence.

Status: Married - three daughters (all grown up now).

Working life:

  • My formal business background was in strategic human resource management.
  • Previously worked commercially with start-up companies, non-profit, as well as global brands’ supporting organisations and their employees undergoing transitional change. As a result, I have a keen understanding of the critical importance of context.
  • Providing a first insight and strong awareness of human psychological capability in demanding circumstances.   I’ve a natural disposition to share my passion for developing and fostering relationships with people of all ages.
  • Retraining at university as a Counselling Psychotherapist, including four years working within the NHS at two North West based NHS Trusts/Health Boards.
  • Private practice for four years - individuals/couples/children & adolescents/groups and corporate clients.

Approach

My approach is akin to being eclectic in presentation; I'm not bound by theories, dogma, conventions or methodology of any one particular school of thought. Instead, I may use an eclectic blend of what I believe or feel’s or experience tells me will work best, either in general or suiting the often immediate needs of individual clients and working within my own preferences and capabilities as an practitioner.

Working from within the strength of a multidisciplinary team, my work is firmly focused upon the biopsychosocial model of therapy. I focus not only upon what's psychologically discussed within a given session, but also upon what is biologically and socially happening for you when we're not together in sessions.

Standards

Today, I'm a very active member of the British Association for Counselling Psychotherapy & Coaching (BACP), EMDR Association UK & Ireland (EMDR) and the Association for Family Therapy and Systemic Practice (AFT). 

Having retrained and become qualified with an integrative background. I've been extremely fortunate to have also been trained by the ex-President of the EMDR Association of UK & Ireland, Dr Michael Patterson OBE in EMDR Therapy. Who was initially invited by the Dr Shapiro the founder of EMDR Therapy to train with her as an EMDR Institute Trainer, joining the Institute’s Faculty in 2006. With additional further accredited training with EMDR Europe in Children & Adolescents.
