Rebecca Rogers BSc (Hons), MBACP
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.
From 31st July I will be offering some face to face counselling again and information about safety measures in place can be found on my website. I will also continue to offer both telephone and online secure video sessions to new and existing clients, to give you more flexibility and choice when making decisions about therapy that works best for you. Please do contact me if you have any questions or would like to know more about working together.
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 be daunting, as can finding the right counsellor to talk to. I offer a caring and empathetic space to hear, accept and support you with 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 feelings and emotions. People come to counselling for lots of different reasons, so whether you are feeling feeling angry, confused, sad, scared or something else, I offer you a supportive and non-judgemental therapy space to be yourself in.
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 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.
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.

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.
