About me

Hello! It's so nice to meet you. My name is Rebecca and I'm a fully qualified and BACP registered counsellor. I have experience in many areas of mental health, such as anxiety, panic, depression, phobias, intimacy and relationship issues, family issues, self-esteem and self-worth, lack of purpose, feeling stuck, and many others. 

My approach

I draw from both person-centered and gestalt theories, using a range of techniques and interventions that are tailored to your unique needs and preferences. I enjoy working in a range of ways with clients – from your standard talking therapy to more creative approaches such as sandtray, parts work, using art materials etc. 

Through our collaborative work together, we'll raise awareness of any beliefs or patterns that may be impacting your life, gain a deeper understanding of the experiences that have shaped you in your past, and connect with who you are now. By doing this, we can develop new ways of thinking and being that align with your values and goals, and we can build your emotional resources to support you beyond the therapy.

Our relationship

I believe that the therapeutic relationship should be a space where clients can be themselves without fear of judgment, and it’s important for me to do all I can to make you feel comfortable. Nothing is off limits in our chats, and I'm an open person who’s happy to talk in-depth about anything you wish. 

Silence plays a crucial role in our therapy sessions as it allows you time to process your thoughts and for me to listen. However, I understand that for many people, prolonged periods of silence can cause anxiety. That's why I won't rely on extended silences as some Freudian approaches do, and I'll talk, engage and offer questions when appropriate. I'll be an active presence in the room, walking alongside you and providing support as a fellow human being. 

My counselling space

Alongside offering online sessions via Zoom. I see clients face-to-face in my garden room in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. I understand that the unknown can be scary when it comes to going somewhere new, so for anyone who's feeling anxious about any parking situations or finding my house, I am able to send over a video walk through once a session is booked in to put your mind at ease.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
