About me

Hi I am Becky, a BACP Accredited Counsellor specialising in working with young people and their families in private practice in Crystal Palace, South East London.

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 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.
