Rebecca Jesty (MA Counselling, MBACP Registered)
I am a qualified, registered counsellor and my private practice is located in Woodley, easily reached from Reading, Bracknell, Maidenhead and Wokingham.
Counselling offers a safe environment where you can feel accepted and can open up about what is happening for you right now.
My training has been integrative and draws from the humanistic, psychodynamic and systemic theories of people and health. Sometimes we all need space to reflect on our lives, assess our problems or find ways to release ourselves from pain. Together we can work on developing your self awareness bringing understanding to the issues you are facing and find potential ways forwards. Your your past, present and future are all considered relevant to your experience of life and how you feel. My approach is holistic and relational.

I am also employed as a Clinical Lead for Reading Lifeline, a charity offering free counselling to individuals and couples who are grieving the loss of a baby. The shock this brings, along with any accompanying emotions and reactions, can make your life and how you feel about yourself and your partner, almost unrecognisable. These reactions are part of the normal process of grieving and having a safe place to talk about your baby and your experiences can be helpful as you try to make sense of what has happened.
I am also experienced at providing support during any subsequent pregnancies that may follow (Rainbow Babies).
Specialist counselling areas:
1) Grief, loss and bereavement including baby loss/miscarriage and still birth/termination

3) Creative exploration using paint/drawing is offered if it is something you particularly connect with
