Rebecca Shivji, BSc (Hons), MBACP, Integrative Counsellor For Stress & Anxiety
When life is becoming overwhelming, it’s best to reach out for help.
Counselling’s a good option because it provides:
- Emotional support
- A safe space to explore your problems with a trained professional who listens and cares
- Techniques to enable you to cope and make changes (if you want to)
I run a person-centred wellbeing service called CounsellingKind, which specialises in helping adults with stress and anxiety.
As a qualified Integrative Counsellor, I work by weaving together different counselling approaches to best meet the needs of each individual client.
I’m also a qualified Mindfulness Instructor and can bring the transformative practice of Mindfulness into your counselling sessions at no additional cost.
You might be feeling stressed, anxious, depressed, sad, irritated, angry, lost, trapped, disempowered, fearful, under-confident, confused, hopeless, alone, tired, or a combination of the above.
If you choose to work with me, you’ll be put at ease, listened to, and empowered with the use of techniques that promote self-esteem and resilience.
I’ll use my knowledge to help you to gain a better understanding of what you’re going through, and my skills to support you to explore the problems that you’re facing and make sense of any accompanying emotions.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

“I enjoyed the mixture of person centred and CBR based approaches, and the handout sheets. The use of mindfulness to help combat stress and anxiety were particularly helpful, as well as discussing traumatic incidents from my past”.
“I’d rate the counselling service I’ve received as excellent. I really enjoyed having someone who I felt understood me, I truly don’t think there’s anyone in my life who really “gets me”, but you did. Another point to make is my PTSD symptoms improved massively”.
