About me

Hello, I'm Becky.  A qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and registered member of the BACP.  Working in private practice, I offer counselling face to face in my therapy rooms, online via Zoom and over the telephone.  Fully insured, my work is guided by the BACP's Ethical Framework.

Most people feel apprehensive before coming to counselling and finding the right counsellor for you can feel daunting.  I fully appreciate this and will provide you with warmth, empathy and acceptance.

I believe talking in a safe and confidential space, free from judgment really can help during difficult times in our lives.  Given time and space to be heard and understood can bring about positive change and be both an empowering and enlightening experience.

Whatever difficulty you are facing, I believe I can support you to understand the feelings you are experiencing and find a way to increase your ability to cope and feel better.

Passionate about my work, I care deeply about supporting people to explore the issues that matter most to them.

I offer a free initial 30 minute telephone consultation and welcome your enquiry.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained to use an integrative approach which means I draw from a variety of counselling theories to best meet the needs of each individual client.

I am a registered member of the BACP, and have a special interest in supporting families experiencing difficulties such as separation and divorce.  I am also experienced in supporting individuals affected by loss and bereavement.

Professional development is important to me and I am continually updating my knowledge and experience.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
