Rebecca Davies - Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, MBACP
Hello. People come to counselling for all kinds of reasons and from all kinds of routes. Key to a good counselling experience is having the right counsellor for you. I am a person centred counsellor which means that I want to work with you as an individual. I don’t have a written structure or set of techniques that I employ I simply aim to build a strong, trusting relationship within which you can explore whatever area of yourself or your life you need to. Person centred counselling helps to peel away outside influences, given to us by family, friends partners, religion, our culture and society. It can help you to find out what makes you tick, what makes life worth living for you. What is important to you and what you want to do. It can help to relieve anxiety, depression and feelings of panic. It can lessen a desire to be in control and help you to embrace the changes that are inevitable in life. I work with empathy, kindness, generosity and gentleness. I also work within firm boundaries which create security, reliability, familiarity and comfort. I am solid and down to earth and at times I may be challenging to you although we are very likely to end up sharing a smile if not a laugh.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I am happy to have a brief (15 min) telephone discussion as an initial introduction for free.
I charge £40 per 50 minute session.
I work exclusively online or by phone.
I currently have space available on a Tuesday or Wednesday.
I have marked above the areas that I have worked in, I believe that people are more than their diagnosis or symptoms and I am keen to work with anyone who feels that I would be a good fit for them.
