Hi I'm Rebecca and sometimes we can reach a point in our lives where problems seem to be stopping us moving forward and often those closest to us are the hardest people to talk to. I am a warm and empathic professionally qualified counsellor who is a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their ethical framework for good practice.
I enjoy working with people from different age groups, backgrounds and cultures including couples as I have a genuine interest in people. I offer counselling in a safe and confidential environment where I can help you explore your thoughts and feelings to gain understanding and to help you move forward in a positive way.
As an Adlerian Counsellor I take an holistic approach - where we not only look at the presenting problems but also explore your past and present and your future hopes. I will work with you to help develop a true understanding of your difficulties and invite solutions to move forward. Counselling is about being truly listened to in a non-judgmental way and can also be creative and fun. Counselling is a collaborative process between client and counsellor, not a programme dictated by me. We go at a pace that suits you and the number of sessions varies from person to person.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained out of the Adlerian Society of Wales in Narbeth obtaining a DIP ASIIP. I have been a volunteer for a local charity as a counsellor and telephone assessor for a number of years. I have a private practice which I fit around my other job supporting people with complex barriers back into work or training. I am also part of the tutor team for the ASoW certificate course.
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.
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.
