Psychodynamic Counsellor MBACP BSc Hons

About me

Hi, I’m Rebecca and I am a fully qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor based in Braintree.  I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy BACP and as such, I adhere to their professional code of Ethics and Practice.

I have successfully worked with both men and women of all ages dealing with a wide range of issues. However, I specialise in palliative care counselling, so I have extensive experience of working with issues around life-limiting illness and loss/bereavement.

There are many different reasons why people seek counselling. They may lack self-esteem, feel anxious, lonely, angry, frustrated and/or depressed. Or perhaps a specific life event has occurred such as bereavement, a job loss or the break-up of a relationship, and coping with everyday life has become a struggle. Whilst family and friends often want the best for us, sometimes it helps to have someone independent to talk to, this is when it can help to talk with a counsellor. Counselling can offer you a different perspective on the difficulties you are experiencing, helping you to gain a better sense of who you are, giving you the power to make positive changes in your life.

As your counsellor I will provide you with a warm, supportive, empathic, accepting and individually tailored approach. I will work hard to help you to make a difference to your life, at a pace which feels comfortable for you.

I offer face-to-face, skype and phone counselling.

Member organisations

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.
