Rebecca Smith - Smiths Counselling & Psychotherapy
You might not be quite sure when it happened but you feel lost. You feel emotionally overwhelmed and know something needs to change but don't know what to do next. Everyday things such as meeting friends for a coffee or going to work have become difficult. Perhaps your imagination runs wild with all of the possible things that could go wrong and it seems impossible to feel calm and happy. I understand that some days it feels as though it would be easier to just stay in bed and that getting out and facing the world takes a huge amount of effort. Counselling can help you find your way again and feel happier.
I can help you to find a way forward. We can work together so you can begin to feel happier and more in control of your thoughts and feelings. Able to enjoy life more again.
I will provide you with a warm, confidential space where you will be supported in beginning to explore what changes you would like to make. I understand thinking about attending counselling can be difficult. I will gently guide you through the process. Please get in touch to find out more.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold an MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am an experienced psychotherapist.
I specialise in working with anxiety. I understand that you may have reached a point where your anxiety is preventing you from participating fully in your life. I can help you to understand your anxiety and lessen the impact it is having. Although I specialise in anxiety, whatever your challenge or difficulty I am here to help. It might be a new difficulty or something that has followed you through your life.
It is important to me that you gain what you are hoping to from counselling and as an integrative therapist I will tailor my approach to best meet your individual needs. I am led by you and what you feel ready and able to work on.
My counselling room is based inside Riverside Chambers which is in Derby City Centre, opposite Quad. There are car parks and on street parking available and I am just a few minutes walk from Derby Bus Station.
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.
