Rebecca Rogers Therapeutic Counsellor BSc (Hons), MBACP
Hello and welcome. My name is Rebecca and I am a professionally qualified therapeutic counsellor based in central Farnham in Surrey, with some appointments also available in Guildford. I offer 1:1 counselling to adults and young people over 16 in a comfortable and professional therapy room. I have experience supporting a wide range of issues including grief, loss, coping skills, women's health, men's mental health, relationship problems, anxiety and difficulties with self-image. I have undertaken specialist training to support infant and baby loss and also have an interest in perinatal mental health.
Coronavirus Update 27th January 2021
During the current Covid-19 lockdown, I am temporarily pausing face to face counselling. Telephone and secure online video sessions are both available to support you during this difficult and challenging time. Please do get in touch if you would like to know more about the possibility of working together - you don't have to cope alone and I would like to help if I can.
How can counselling help?
There are times when life feels challenging and it is difficult to cope alone. Talking to a counsellor can help to think about what is going on for you but taking the first steps can feel very daunting, as can finding the right counsellor to talk to. I offer a warm, caring and empathetic space to hear, accept and support whatever you are struggling with. Together we might look at something you have been holding for a long time, or explore and make sense of new emotions and feelings you are experiencing. Whatever brings you to counselling, I offer a supportive and non-judgemental therapy space to be yourself in.
My personal approach
I am an integrative counsellor working primarily with a humanistic approach. My role is not to tell you what to do, but to support you in accessing and exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and to find greater clarity and understanding through increased self-awareness. I work with you to think about past experiences and relationships, in terms of how they are impacting you now. I believe we all have the capacity for growth given the right conditions, and whilst it may not be easy or a quick fix, counselling can be a hugely restorative and rewarding experience.
Sometimes it is difficult to find the right words to express feelings so alongside talking therapy I also work creatively if you would like to, using for example shells, stones or writing. Being creative can be a helpful way of accessing thoughts and feelings that are hard to express.
Some client feedback
"You have been such a massive help to me and I am very grateful for that"
"Thank you so much for your help, kindness and empathy - it has been invaluable"
"Thank you for guiding me to a healthy place I didn't think was attainable 3 months ago"
"You helped me understand that how I was feeling was OK and that there was no shame in it"
If you are unsure whether therapy might be useful for you, or have any questions about working together, please do get in touch with me and we can talk about what you are experiencing and how I could help.

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.
