Rebecca Rogers MBACP Dip.Couns
Hello, my name is Rebecca and I am a qualified and registered counsellor based in central Farnham and outer Guildford in Surrey. I offer 1:1 counselling to adults and young people over 16, in a comfortable and professional therapy room.
In order to follow Government advice regarding Coronavirus social distancing, I am no longer offering face to face counselling. However, I am still working and will continue to support existing clients and new clients via telephone or online face-to-face sessions using Zoom. I am offering these services at a reduced session rate.
How can counselling help?
There are times when we all need someone to talk to because coping on our own feels difficult. You might have been struggling with something for a long time, or be trying to make sense of new feelings and emotions. You could be feeling angry, confused, sad, scared or upset or be aware that some space for yourself might be useful. Talking to a counsellor can help to think about what is going on when it is hard to see a way forward, make different choices or find answers. I offer a warmly empathic and non-judgemental space to hear, accept and support you with whatever you are struggling with.
It is not a quick fix and sometimes counselling might feel difficult, but it can help you to gain a better understanding and to find your own answers. Through sharing thoughts, feelings and fears you are better able to cope with emotional struggles with increased resilience and self-awareness, which can lead to a more fulfilling and healthy life.
A personal approach
Being trained integratively means I work in a flexible way, drawing on several counselling theories to best meet the needs of each client. For me, counselling is not about being 'one size fits all' because we are all different and unique, and I find it helpful to work in varied ways to support you in achieving your goals. They are your counselling sessions.
Sometimes it is difficult to find the right words to express our feelings so I also work creatively if you would like to, using for example, shells, stones or drawing. Being creative can be a very useful part of counselling, giving insights into subconscious thoughts and emotions, however, I am always led by you and what you would like to do.
If you are unsure whether therapy might be useful for you, please do get in touch with me and we can talk about what you are experiencing and how it could help.
