Rebecca Smith - Smiths Counselling & Psychotherapy
Following a Covid-19 risk assessment and move to a larger therapy room, I am pleased to be able to resume offering face to face counselling appointments. You might not be quite sure when it happened but you feel lost. Maybe you're feeling emotionally overwhelmed or underwhelmed. You know something needs to change but don't know what to do next. Perhaps your imagination runs wild with all of the possible things that could go wrong and it seems impossible to make positive changes. Through counselling I can help you find your way again. So you can feel calmer, happier and in control of your future.
I am an experienced, compassionate psychotherapist and I can help you to find a way forward. Whether your difficulties are from the past, present or future you don't have to struggle alone. My counselling room is a safe, confidential space where we can work together so you can begin to feel happier, confident and able to enjoy life again.
I understand thinking about attending counselling can be difficult. Maybe you know exactly what you'd like from counselling but if you're not sure I will gently guide you through the process. I can help you to build a picture of how you would like your life to look and feel. 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.

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 at The Mill in Derby City Centre. It has its on own private entrance and free onsite parking.
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.
