Rebecca Midwinter Psychotherapist/Counsellor MBACP Accred.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: during the current Corona Virus pandemic, in line with Government recommendations, I will be limiting my work and social contact. I will therefore be stopping face to face sessions and will be offering online and telephone talking therapy only. Online/telephone therapy can provide a safe, therapeutic space to talk through any issue or anxiety that you are currently facing
I have recently left the post of Award Leader and Senior Lecturer at Bath Spa University directing the MA in Counselling & Psychotherapy Practice, to concentrate on developing The Wellbeing Centre and my clinical practice. I remain a Visiting Lecturer at Universities across the country.
I am a Certified Applied Trauma Psychotherapist and I am an EMDR UK & Ireland Accredited Practitioner.I am BACP Accredited & UKRCP Registered Independent Psychotherapist.
I am a Clinical Supervisor, supervising the supervisors who work with therapists and the therapists themselves.
I have extensive experience of working within the field of trauma counselling, including working with those who have experienced Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Sometimes it is easier to talk to someone who is not part of your everyday life; someone who is qualified in helping you explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and helping you to find different perspectives and meaning. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental relationship to enable you to explore the things that matter to you. I work with many different issues such as trauma, anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship difficulties, abuse, workplace issues, change and transitions, stress and illness.
Please contact me if you would like some more information about me or about how therapy might be beneficial to you. An initial assessment session will be held to enable us to discuss your individual needs and issues.
My fee is £55 per hour. Therapy sessions can be open-ended or we can agree a pre-determined number of sessions at the beginning of the therapy. Together we will decide upon the best therapeutic intervention for you.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
