Dip.Couns MBACP Hope Counselling Guernsey

About me

"Where talk exists, so does hope" - Matt Haig.

Hope Counselling Guernsey is a professional and confidential counselling service that provides a safe space for you to explore areas of your life that you are struggling with or wish to improve on.

My name is Rebekah and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) offering counselling to individuals. 

I believe that people matter and I am passionate about my role as a counsellor. I wholeheartedly believe in the power of talking and I have witnessed the positive impact of this both in my personal and professional life. Therefore it is my goal to encourage others to begin this journey for themselves, working with them side-by-side enabling them to develop a better awareness of self and of others. 

Life can be challenging and tough at times, which can take us on paths we might not expect, want or understand and sometimes we can feel confused and unsure of which way to turn.  I believe that counselling is able to give you the hope that you need when your feeling hopeless. 

I genuinely believe that we all have the potential and ability to lead fulfilling lives and move towards positive change and growth, if this is what we truly desire.

Are there areas of your life that you recognise you struggle with but you don't know why or how to change that?
Are struggling finding a solution of your own to an issue?


Did any of these questions above stand out for you? If so I believe counselling could be beneficial for you.

Session details

I offer face to face counselling and online counselling from my consulting room which is located in the Vale.

I believe that is important that you feel comfortable about working together therefore I offer a free 20-30 minute initial consultation session. This session allows us to talk through your needs and expectations of therapy, ask any questions and establish whether we can work together moving forwards.

Further sessions are 50 minutes and there is no limit to sessions offered.

Training, qualifications & experience

I started my counselling training in 2014 and I hold a COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills, a Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Studies and a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.

I am now undertaking the Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) Intensive Training Course. 

I have 6 years experience in support related roles, both in the UK and Guernsey. Following this I spent the last 2 years working as a counsellor in the voluntary sector, which inspired me to start up in private practice.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
