I offer long or short term therapy for families and individuals. My approach is psychodynamic which means that I work with an awareness of unconscious processes and the effect they may have on the conscious personality. I offer creative means of expression for clients who find this helpful.
If you would like more information on how I work or if you are not sure if this is the right therapy for you - I am happy to chat informally by telephone or book a £30 consultation session with no obligation to continue. Please see my website rebeccabeynon.com for more information.
I offer one-to-one psychodynamic therapy sessions for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, family difficulties and low self-esteem.
Child and Family Therapy
Play and creative therapy for children, adolescents and families. Gentle, child-centred, therapy that aims to help the whole family work through difficulties in a supportive environment.
I offer Play Therapy for children (and young people with learning disabilities). Younger children may not be able to explain (and may not know) what is bothering them. Play is the natural medium of children and play therapy allows for the expression and containment of children's feelings and difficulties, which can be worked through with the therapist in a very safe and age-appropriate way (due to the current crisis I am unable to offer play therapy but can consult with you on younger children's difficulties).
