Rebecca Day MBACP
I am a qualified person-centred therapist, meaning that I work in an open and collaborative way, with you at the heart of the therapy. Counselling is an opportunity for you to find support at a difficult time in your life and to explore it at your own pace. I am here to support you through your experience by being empathic and giving non-judgemental reflections in a confidential and safe environment. Acceptance and compassion are at the core of my practice.
I work with a wide range of client issues but have a particular interest in:
Long-term illness/chronic pain, trauma, work related stress, complex relationships, grief, low self-confidence or self-esteem, stress and anxiety.
Each person’s experience is unique so it’s important to work to your own individual needs. I offer short-term and long-term counselling and remain flexible to changing situations. I see clients in-person and am also experienced at delivering therapy online, via video chat.
I believe strongly in the strength of the therapeutic relationship in bringing about positive growth and change, but it must be the right relationship for you. I offer an initial 45-minute session so that we can meet, explore how the therapy will work for you and decide if we would like to work together. I understand that this first step can feel quite daunting, so I am also happy to talk on the phone or via email for the first meeting.
I offer daytime appointments on a Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and can offer some early evening appointments through the week if needed.
Counselling sessions are held in a private space in the centre of Kendal, easily accessible by car, with free parking or a short walk from the town centre.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a postgraduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. During my training, I volunteered at, and was employed on a freelance basis by MIND, in Kendal.
I’m a registered member of the BACP and am committed to working in accordance with their ethical framework for good practice.
Alongside my private practice, I also deliver therapy services to the filmmaking community, through my company Film In Mind. This came about after many years working in documentary production before I trained as a therapist.
In my previous work in documentary, I focused for a number of years on films that dealt with the themes of terminal illness, palliative care and grief. I worked closely with the community during that time on developing educational resources, awareness raising and creating positive dialogue.
