About me

Stepping Stones Counselling and Psychotherapy is an established business, providing counselling, psychotherapy, 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 and fully trained and certified EMDR therapist, 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 CBT training, Rebekah also offers couples counselling and integrative CBT.

Rebekah 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 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 offers reduced fee sessions for trainee counsellors. Rebekah teaches on a Level 2 Counselling Skills course for an organisation in West Sussex, and additionally offers training around well-being and mental health for a variety of organisations and businesses throughout the UK.

Rebekah is joined by Rachael Martin, who is a Qualified Advanced Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Hypnotherapist. Rachael holds a wide range of experience in working with young people and adults, and specialises in working with young people as well as mothers. She has particular experience in working with people who are experiencing difficulties with phobias and eating / weight issues, as well as depression and anxiety.

Rebekah is also joined by Richard Berry, who is a Qualified 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.

Face to face sessions are held in Worthing and Haywards Heath, West Sussex as well as online and by telephone. There are additional clinics in Ashurst Wood, East Sussex and Central London which are attended by Rebekah and supported by an additional therapist, Fiona Small.

Stepping Stones therapists tend 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 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.
