Rebecca Duncan Dip.Couns MBACP (Accred.)
Hello, my name is Rebecca. I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor & Psychotherapist, offering one to one talking therapy, providing you with support and a listening ear when things get tough.
I am currently offering online (Zoom/Skype/Teams/WhatsApp) or telephone appointments, until the current pandemic has become more settled.
At the very core of my counselling practice is my belief that we all deserve to be who we are, without judgement. Counselling offers a safe, confidential space within which you can openly explore the difficulties that you are facing. Talking it over can help.
My experience as a counsellor has offered me an opportunity to work with people facing a range of life’s struggles: from feelings of depression & anxiety, low self-esteem, bereavement, physical and emotional trauma, work-related stress and relationship issues, through to the day to day issues that face the families and friends of those suffering long term mental and/or physical illnesses.
As a Humanistic Integrative counsellor, my role is to be alongside you during the counselling process, offering empathy, respect and encouragement. There are times when you just need someone to hear you. Allowing yourself to take that time to look after you can be a challenging and sometimes unfamiliar experience, and one that can ultimately lead to a greater sense of wellbeing and understanding.
Together, we can work find ways of enabling you to move forward in your life, with greater knowledge of yourself and tools to help you manage with difficult feelings.
I also offer supervision to counsellors. Please do contact me for more details.
Training, qualifications & experience
CPCAB Certificate in Therapeutic Supervision for Counsellors (Level 6)
CBCAP Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic Skills (Level 5)
CPCAB Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Level 4)
Awareness in Bereavement Care Training (Via Cruse Bereavement Care)
Registered Member of British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP)
My private practice allows me to work in a humanistic integrative way with a range of clients and issues, from anxiety and childhood trauma to stress and relationship difficulties. My work within the field of Bereavement enables me to work in a very personalised way, with what can be one of the most challenging phases of our lives, the death of someone we love.
I am passionate about the work I do and committed to offering the best service I can to my clients. I have recently completed the Level 6 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling Supervision, which will provide additional perspectives to my practice and allow me to work more closely alongside other counselling professionals. My existing practice continues to grow my learning and experience to further compliment my holisitic approach to helping others though talking therapy.
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.

Areas of counselling I deal with
It can be worthwhile having an initial telephone conversation, or introductory meeting (up to 30mins) to talk about your needs from counselling and for you to find out a little bit more about me.
Our first session will be focused on discovering how we can best work together and deciding whether fixed term of work, or more open-ended, longer term work will suit your needs.
Assessment session: £45 (60 mins)
Full 60 minute session: £45
