About me

Are you struggling with life and its challenges? Maybe you are feeling anxious or depressed or maybe you are finding it difficult to make choices. We all find ourselves facing difficult situations at various times in our lives and sometimes having someone to listen can be all we need.

My name is Rebecca Honeybourne and I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor. I offer counselling to individuals who wish to explore the difficulties that they face in their lives in a safe, confidential, supportive and non-judgemental environment. I strongly believe in the development of building a trusting relationship with my clients. I believe that by offering warmth and understanding to my clients they are able to explore their difficulties without judgement. I see counselling as a mutual journey where I work alongside my clients as they work through their challenges. As an integrative counsellor; I use a variety of counselling approaches, to suit each of my clients’ needs.

A counselling session is 50 minutes and we will usually meet weekly. When we first meet we will look at confidentiality, practical issues and any questions you may have.

I work either short term or open-ended.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
