Hi, I am Rebecca, an MBACP (accred) integrative counsellor specialising in working with young people and their families. I have 17 years experience of working with children in a variety of different settings from new born right up into adulthood, and with a range of complex needs.
My aim is to build up a trusting relationship that supports young people in exploring their feelings, life and problems, so that they become easier to understand, and able to bring about change.
For the last 6 years I have been the Lead Counsellor at a secondary school in South East London, where I have provided counselling for the students, staff and parents/carers at the school. I also run my own practice from Newlands Park Natural Health Care Centre in Sydenham, where I offer one to one, short term or open ended counselling for young people from 11-25 years old.
The way I work
I completed my Integrative Counselling Degree from Greenwich University in 2010. I have been trained to use Petruska Clarkson’s 5 stage Model which incorporates Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) into a working model. A key advantage of integrative counselling is its flexibility and focus on the whole of an individual. The integration of different approaches means that therapy can be tailored to meet each individual person, and a variety of needs and concerns.
What to expect
During an initial consultation we will discuss what has brought you and/or your family to counselling, your expectations of counselling, the practicalities of the sessions. and it also gives us the opportunity to see if we can work together. It is quite natural to feel anxious and/or nervous about an initial meeting but my aim is to try and make you feel as relaxed and comfortable as quickly as possible.
Where I am?
Newlands Park Natural Health Care Centre is located at 48 Newlands Park, London, SE26 5NE and can be easily reached from either Penge East Station (with connections from Bromley and London victoria) and from Sydenham Station (with mainline connections to London Bridge as well as overground services to Canada Water).
