About me

Stepping Stones Counselling and Psychotherapy is an established business since 2017, providing counselling, psychotherapy, EMDR, Mindfulness, hypnotherapy and CBT across the South East, for clients experiencing a wide variety of presentations.

Stepping Stones was founded by Rebekah Golds-Jones, Psychotherapist, Certified EMDR Therapist, ACTO Approved Online Psychotherapist, who additionally offers Mindful Meditation as a Mindfulness Instructor. Mindfulness is being used more widely as this method of support at times of emotional stress becomes more well understood and accepted within societies and cultures. From additional systemic and trauma training, Rebekah also offers couples counselling and specialised trauma therapy. Online therapy includes email, IM and webcam sessions which are all provided via secure, encrypted platforms.

Rebekah has over 27 years of professional experience in working with people experiencing mental health difficulties within the NHS, supporting  people from a wide variety of contexts and with a mix of different issues. Since retraining as a therapist, Rebekah has particularly specialised in working with emergency service personnel, as well as those who have experienced a range of life traumas and mental health challenges. Rebekah offers EMDR therapy, which can be used to reprocess trauma, phobic reaction and a variety of mental health issues with very good effect.

Rebekah has experience of working with students to university level and is a qualified teacher. She offers reduced fee sessions for trainee counsellors. Rebekah teaches on Level 2 and Level 3 Counselling Skills courses for an organisation in Sussex, and additionally offers training around well-being and mental health for a variety of organisations and businesses throughout the UK, including in EMDR.

Rebekah is joined by Sarah Harris, who is a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist. Sarah is particularly experienced in working with clients who have personality disorders, and additionally specialises in working with people who have experienced trauma, severe depression and anxiety. Sarah is a DBT Group Facilitator, and offers group work within Stepping Stones.

Rebekah is also joined by Richard Berry, who is an Advanced Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Hypnotherapist. Richard has a background in the health sector and specialises in working with people experiencing work and relationship stress, as well as phobias, self confidence issues and anxiety.

Rebekah additionally is joined by Fiona Small, who is an Advanced Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Hypnotherapist. Fiona holds a wide range of experience in working with young people and adults with learning disabilities, and also has particular experience in working with people who are experiencing relationship difficulties, as well as depression and anxiety. In addition, Fiona has therapeutic experience in working with young people who are in need of therapeutic support.

Finally, Rebekah is joined by Sue Mulvoy, who is a Systemic Psychotherapist and specialises in working with couples and families. Sue has particular experience and expertise in working with those who are supporting a loved one with an eating disorder, as well as those who have a loved one with a learning disability. She has a 30 year background in working within the NHS both within mental health and learning disability services, and therefore brings a chasm of experience to her therapeutic work at Stepping Stones.

Face to face sessions are held in Worthing and Haywards Heath, West Sussex. A Brighton room is soon to open. Rebekah has an additional clinic in Central London.

Stepping Stones therapists generally work in a '12 session model' but all decisions surrounding duration of sessions will be agreed in the assessment session, with both short and long term therapy being possible. Sessions last for 50 minutes and are payable at the time of the session.

Our approach to therapy enables each client, as an individual, to process and work through thoughts, patterns of behaviour and life challenges, as well as meet times of crisis with a reflective mind.

Our work with people is focused upon enabling them to develop and improve their quality of life, and explore any problems and difficulties, whatever they may be caused by.

Life's stress can derive from a wide variety of sources including relationship difficulties, work pressures, family histories and dynamics, as well as social anxieties, self-esteem and image issues and other mental health difficulties. Human experience also often involves trauma and bereavement, which, when unexplored, can lead to noticeable relational difficulties in all manners of life, not just with those we are closest to.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

Sadly, both venues are up one flight of stairs. Online sessions are available, however.
