Rebecca Gribbon, Psychotherapist and Counsellor, MBACP, FPC
Are you are at a point in your life where you are feeling directionless or despairing, or are experiencing anxiety or stress? Maybe you feel stuck in patterns of behaviour that feel unhealthy or destructive. Or you may feel as if past life events or relationships are impacting on your sense of wellbeing.
I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor offering a supportive space in which we can work together to explore your emotional life, with a view to its renewal or enhancement. My role is not to impose my ideas upon you but to help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings in a confidential and non-judgemental relationship. Gaining insight helps to build a more secure sense of self, and can improve your relationships with others: developing this insight is central to the work of therapy.
I offer both short term and open ended therapy.
- Short term therapy is usually based on twelve sessions and we would formulate together a focus for our work — this could be the exploration of a specific pattern in relationships, modes of behaviour or troubling symptoms.
- Open ended therapy provides the time and space to make complex connections, explore interpretations and consider links between past experiences and current states of mind. Our initial consultation will help you decide which is the best route for you. I have worked with people from many different backgrounds and believe in treating each person who seeks therapy as an individual .
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from WPF, London, where I trained in both open ended and short term therapy. As well as working in private practice, I currently act as a Student Counsellor at a central London, Russell Group university and work in the voluntary sector in South West London.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC). These professional bodies ensure that all of their members are appropriately trained and qualified, and that they continue with their professional development and that they adhere to their Ethical Framework for Good
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
