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


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.
