I offer a safe therapeutic space to work on whatever you may need. See my website for more information www.beckywatherston.com

I work with a wide range of clients including LGBTQ+ and issues such as bereavement, loss, fertility issues, pregnancy, prenatal anxiety, postnatal anxiety, relationship problems or breakdowns, anxiety, trust issues, terminal illness, social anxiety, sexuality, passive aggressive behaviour, anger, shame, abuse, historical abuse, emotional abuse, parental support, depression, general anxiety, trauma, parenting problems, workplace problems and stresses. I can also work with you on other mental health issues. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified counsellor (Dip Couns MBACP) BACP Register Number 389607 and certified online and telephone counsellor.

My core training is integrative and takes in elements of person centred, psychoanalytic, humanistic cognitive and transpersonal models. I use these approaches to work out what works best for you. I firmly believe the relationship between the client and counsellor is important which is why I offer a free 20 minute consultation to get to know each other and see if you think we are a good fit. 

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Additional information

I offer a free 20-minute consultation to find out a bit more about you and for you to get to know me and see if you feel we could work together. This is not a counselling session, more of an introduction. 


After that my sessions are 50 minutes at the same time either fortnightly or weekly. I work online, on the phone or face to face whichever suits your 
needs. Sessions are priced at £60 face to face or £50 online or on the phone, due to counselling room rental charges.


If you would like to get started the consultation and first session can be done together, one after the other.

Key details

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.

My room in E13 has wheelchair access and free parking.
