Hi, my name is Rebecca and I am a registered qualified counsellor. I offer one to one counselling in a peaceful, relaxing setting within my home, that is private and confidential.
I offer long-term and time-limited counselling to suit clients' individual needs and financial budgets. My location offers plenty of space for parking and is easily accessible from Grimsby and Lincoln via public transport or car. Areas such as Scunthorpe, Brigg and Immingham have a limited service via public transport.
I believe that individuals can overcome whatever is troubling them given the space and time of counselling. My employment background has been of a mental health nature, within GP practices, secure settings, hostels and housing projects helping individuals overcome difficulties within their lives. I have worked with a wide range of clients of all ages, from teenage to elderly. No matter what the issues or problems people are faced with, I greet them with a warm smile, without judgement and give them the choice and freedom to be who they want to be.
I believe that all individuals are equal and we all are entitled to the same opportunities in life no matter how big or small. Everyone has the right to live their life without the past or present getting in the way.

The governing body I subscribe and adhere to is the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy). As part of my professional practice, I am bound by the BACP's Ethical framework, which requires all of its members to attend supervision with a qualified supervisor, to participate with continuing professional development and to adhere to a set code of conduct.
A copy of the ethical framework can be found on the BACP's website which is a counsellors code of practice. You may find this informative when researching counselling and psychotherapy.
