Hello, my name is Rebecca. I have been working as a counsellor since 2012 and have worked predominantly with children and young people but also adults. My practice focuses upon providing a safe space conveying warmth, acceptance and understanding, the aim of which helps to facilitate change within my client. Depending on the needs of the clients, I also bring in elements of other therapeutic approaches and means of self expression to fully explore the issue and enable them to connect with their inner self.
Some of the issues clients have brought into counselling include bullying, anger, self harm, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, isolation, depression and difficulty sleeping. Whatever is brought into the counselling space, my aim is to help provide a safe, comfortable space where we can make sense of what is going on in life and help them acheive what they wish. For some people, counselling is about feeling listened to, accepted and not judged, to get their feelings and thoughts out rather than bottling them up. For others, it may be about needing to make life changes and needing help to do this but being unsure where to start. Whatever the reason for seeking counselling, I offer the time and space to explore and express thoughts or feelings, to try and make sense of the situation and facilitate change.
