Rebecca Pillay PGDip, BA(Hons), MBACP reg. (Working with children & adults).
I am experienced in work with both adults and children/young people and currently work in association with Hull and East Yorkshire Mind in schools across Hull and East Riding where I see children and young people referred from CAMHS (NHS).
My private work is based in a discreet location just outside of Grimsby and Cleethorpes.
I have a special interest in therapeutic work with children and young people. It is my belief that if we can work through children and young people's issues within a safe and secure therapeutic relationship, we enable them to gain greater self-awareness and understanding and to develop positive coping strategies to carry forward into adulthood.
I am an integrative therapist working from a relational framework: In simple terms this means that I am trained to provide different types of therapy to suit my client’s needs, whilst maintaining focus on the quality of our relationship. Being trained integratively enables me to adapt the therapy to suit your needs, not you to suit the therapy....after all one size doesn’t fit all!
I have experience of working with many differing issues however, I base my practice on the premise that I work with you... ‘the person.’ As a therapist I understand that we all feel and think very differently, with everyone's experience being unique to them. I strongly believe that any issue can be challenged within a safe and effective therapeutic relationship.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. This recognises that my training and practice is of a high standard and meets the requirements of the Professional Standards Authority. I work according to the BACP Ethical Framework, and attend regular supervision in accordance with this.
In addition to 1:1 discussion, when working with children and young people (and sometimes adults) I work in a non-directive, creative way, engaging clients in activities such as drawing, play and sand tray work.
