About me

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) or telephone appointments, and some in person sessions.

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.

Counselling Supervision

I also offer supervision to counsellors.  Please do contact me for more details.

Training, qualifications & experience

BACP Accreditation

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.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.
