Rebecca Buckley Art Psychotherapist and Counsellor HCPC MBACP MNCS (Accred)
I am a qualified and Accredited Art Psychotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. My therapeutic philosophy centres around the importance of the therapeutic relationship, providing individuals and groups with a secure base from which to grow and develop. My approach is psychodynamic and relationally orientated. Currently I work with clients experiencing mental health issues, supporting individuals to find their path into recovery.
I have experience in addiction, mental health and sexual violence. I work with groups in long term psychotherapy and psycho-education. I work privately in both long and short term work. This is something that we would explore together based on your goals and needs. I believe in the experiential ability creativity has in supporting people to explore unconscious material and in developing self awareness.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
