About me

Rebekah Golds-Jones is a Psychodynamic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, offering counselling/ therapy, Mindfulness and training. She has over 23 years of experience in working with people experiencing mental health difficulties within the NHS; now seeing people from a wide variety of contexts and with a mix of different issues.

Face to face sessions are held in Arundel, West Sussex and Lewes, East Sussex. Rebekah tends to work in a '12 session model', but all decisions surrounding duration of sessions will be agreed in the assessment session and short term therapy can be arranged. Sessions can be conducted face to face, telephone or FaceTime / Skype, and last for 50 minutes. Long term treatment is also available.

Talking therapies have recently been reported as being of high benefit, with psychodynamic psychotherapy noted within newer research as being highly effective:

Rebekah's approach to therapy enables each client, as an individual, to process and work through thoughts, patterns of behaviour and life challenges, as well as meet times of crisis with a reflective mind.

Rebekah is also a Mindfulness instructor and provides 'pure' Mindfulness sessions, where the focus is wholly upon practising Mindfulness Meditation.

Mindfulness is being used more widely as this method of support at times of emotional stress becomes more well understood and accepted within societies and cultures. I use Mindfulness principles and practices within my work with people as relevant, as well as practice Mindfulness myself regularly.

I am registered with the BACP as an individual member, working towards accreditation. I am also registered with the NCS but am awaiting the awarded level to be confirmed.

My work with people is focused upon enabling them to develop and improve their quality of life, and explore any problems and difficulties, whatever they may be caused by.

Life's stress can derive from a wide variety of sources including relationship difficulties, work pressures, family histories and dynamics, as well as social anxieties, self-esteem and image issues and other mental health difficulties. Human experience also often involves trauma and bereavement, which often, when unexplored, can lead to noticeable relational difficulties in all manners of life, not just with those we are closest to.

I also offer a specialised service to all Ambulance, Police and Fire personnel, based around the 12 session model. This is based upon my own experience of working with these service personnel within my own NHS career, but also from being married to a Paramedic for many years.
