Rebekah Golds-Jones PGDip MBACP, MNCS (accred)
Rebekah Golds-Jones is a Psychodynamic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and fully trained and certified EMDR therapist, and offers counselling/ psychotherapy, Mindfulness and training. She has over 26 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 personnel, as well as those who have experienced a range of life traumas and mental health challenges.
Rebekah has experience of working with students to university level and offers reduced fee sessions for trainee counsellors. Rebekah is about to commence teaching on a Level 2 Counselling Skills course for an organisation in West Sussex.
Face to face sessions are held in Worthing and Haywards Heath, West Sussex as well as online and by telephone.
Rebekah tends to 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 also being possible. Sessions last for 50 minutes.
Talking therapies have recently been reported as being of high benefit, with psychodynamic psychotherapy noted within newer research as being highly effective:
Rebekah's 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.
Rebekah also offers EMDR therapy, which can be used to reprocess trauma, phobic reaction and a variety of mental health issues with very good effect. The initial two sessions are double sessions, with further sessions of usual length in most cases, although this will be reviewed throughout.
Rebekah is additionally a Mindfulness Meditation instructor and provides 'pure' Mindfulness sessions, where the focus is wholly upon practising Mindfulness Meditation.

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. I use Mindfulness principles and practices within my work with people as appropriate, as well as practice Mindfulness myself regularly.
I am registered with the BACP as an individual member, working towards accreditation. I am also registered and accredited with the NCS, working towards Senior Accreditation. I am registered with UPCA, which is part of the UKCP.
My 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.
I also offer a specialised service to all Ambulance, Police and Fire personnel, based around the 12 session model. This is based upon my own experience of working with and alongside these service personnel within my own NHS career, but also from being married to a Paramedic for many years.
I am experienced in working with students, and, more recently, trainee counsellors.
