Rebecca Wells MBACP (Accredited)
Hi I am Becky, a BACP Accredited Counsellor specialising in working with young people and their families in private practice in Upper Norwood, Crystal Palace.
In my practice I aim to build up a trusting relationship that supports and encourages children and young people in exploring their feelings, life and problems, so that they become easier to understand, and able to bring about change.
I have been working with young people and their families for the last 20 years in a variety of different settings, and with a range of complex needs. I was a specialist nanny for 20 years, I have spent 7 years working in education as a Lead Counsellor in a secondary school, and I now run my own counselling practice where I specialise in one to one counselling for children and young people.
Years of working with children has given me extensive knowledge of child development and a good insight into the difficulties that young people face today, and, how best to support them in overcoming their problems.
The way I work
I use an integrative model that incorporates person-centred, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic therapy into a working model. I believe this approach best suits young people as therapy can be tailored to meet each individuals needs.
What to expect
When you first contact me we will arrange a suitable time for me to call you for a free telephone consultation that will last between 15-45 minutes. This is an opportunity for me to gather as much information as possible about your child and the difficulties that he/she is experiencing. We will then arrange a face to face initial consultation where your child and I can discuss what has brought him/her to counselling, it also gives us the chance to see if we can work together. It is quite natural to feel anxious and/or nervous about an initial meeting but my aim is to try and make you and your child feel as relaxed and comfortable as quickly as possible.

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.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
