Rebecca Wales - Calm Water Counselling
Thank you for visiting Calm Water Counselling and a very warm welcome. My name is Rebecca and I offer general counselling for many kinds of difficulties. We can all feel a bit overwhelmed sometimes by what life throws at us. With counselling I can help you through these difficult times by providing face to face, online or telephone counselling support.
I am a qualified & experienced Person Centred Counsellor and I work with adults of all ages and backgrounds. I provide one-to-one counselling from my home in Stratford Upon Avon, Warwickshire. I have a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and as well as face to face therapy I am also qualified to work online and over the telephone so my service is flexible in order to suit your needs and lifestyle.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice.
I also currently volunteer as a counsellor for AGE UK and have done for the past 3 years which I thoroughly enjoy.
I am passionate about the service I offer, and I try to create an atmosphere that enables you to feel relaxed and therefore enable you to be open, honest and for you to safely and confidentially explore what’s on your mind.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I will be able to see clients face to face at a local venue or am also able to arrange home visits when allowed.
