Rebecca Gartrell- Humanistic Integrative Counsellor
In challenging times it may feel daunting to reach out for support. I will offer you a warm welcome and a friendly non-judgmental approach. Maybe you haven't had counselling before, or feel unsure how it may help you. Counselling provides a safe, therapeutic and confidential space to explore any difficulties that you may be experiencing, with a view to enabling the changes that you seek in your life.
This is the first step and I am here to support you and work with you in seeking these changes.
I am a fully qualified Humanistic Integrative Counsellor and individual member of the BACP. This means that my therapeutic approach is tailored to meet your specific needs, and may encompass a range of theories or creative methods in our work together. As a humanistic counsellor, I believe that we all have the capacity for growth, healing and change.
Change is possible.

- Substance misuse

- Family issues
- Relationship difficulties
- Suicidal thoughts
- Panic attacks

Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked as a qualified nurse in both acute and community settings, prior to working in education for 15 years. Since qualifying as a counsellor, I have gained additional experience working creatively with young adults, in addition to my work with adults on an individual basis. My career background offers a depth of experience in working with people in times of need.
I practise in a Person-centred way, which means that you are at the very centre of the work, incorporating Gestalt, Psychodynamic and Transactional Analysis approaches.

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.
