About me

Hi, I'm Becky and I work as an integrative counsellor and coach. My post-graduate training in Integrative Counselling and Coaching means I can offer you a unique combination of counselling and coaching to help you resolve past issues while also exploring your future journey. Together, we can then identify a path forward for you to make tangible changes in your life.

We all face difficult issues at some time in our lives. You might be experiencing relationship difficulties or have experienced a bereavement or loss of a job. Maybe you are struggling with various aspects of parenting. Whatever it is, you might be lying awake at night, wishing things were different.

If you are struggling with a problem, feeling stuck, or want to make some life changes, I offer a safe space to open up, explore and rebalance.

My counselling approach is integrative. It might sound technical, but it’s rooted in a very simple idea. There is no one size that fits all. No single, golden theory that solves every problem. You are a unique individual. My work will be tailored specifically to you: techniques and expertise adapted to your preferences, your issues, your goals. 

If this sounds like what you are looking for, please get in touch by email, text message or phone call. I offer a free initial 15-minute discussion which allows you to get a feel for how we can work together and gives you the chance to ask any questions you may have. 

Parent Coaching

I also work as a parent coach, working alongside you in a non-judgemental way to help you build confidence in your parenting. We will work collaboratively to build on your current strengths/skills, to bring joy to your parenting. I will give you the parenting tools and strategies to help you achieve your goals so you can deepen your relationships and see your child thrive. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a degree in Psychology (1st class honours) and a Post-graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Coaching (Distinction). I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and abide by their ethical guidelines. I am trained in bereavement counselling through St Christophers Hospice. I am qualified to deliver a variety of Parenting Programmes as well as training for professionals in the Family Partnership Model - through the Maudsley. I have over 20 years of experience working with a wide range of individuals including individual counselling clients, parents, school staff, and pupils.

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.
