About me

Hi, I’m Rebecca and I am a fully qualified and experienced BACP Accredited Psychodynamic Counsellor based in Braintree.  

I have successfully worked with both men and women of all ages dealing with a wide range of issues. 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, online and phone counselling.

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.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
