About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Rebecca. I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, offering one to one talking therapy, providing you with support and a listening ear when things get tough.

At the very core of my counselling practice is my belief that we all deserve to be who we are, without judgement.  Counselling offers a safe, confidential space within which you can openly explore the difficulties that you are facing. Talking it over can help.

My experience as a counsellor has offered me an opportunity to work with people facing a range of  life’s struggles: from feelings of depression & anxiety, low self-esteem, bereavement, physical and emotional trauma, work-related stress and relationship issues, through to the day to day issues that face the families and friends of those suffering long term mental and/or physical illnesses.

As a Humanistic Integrative counsellor, my role is to be alongside you during the counselling process, offering empathy, respect and encouragement.  There are times when you just need someone to hear you.  Allowing yourself to take that time to look after you can be a challenging and sometimes unfamiliar experience, and one that can ultimately lead to a greater sense of wellbeing and understanding.

Together, we can work find ways of enabling you to move forward in your life, with greater knowledge of yourself and tools to help you manage with difficult feelings.

Practice description

Currently, I am offering online (Zoom/Skype/Teams/WhatsApp) or telephone based sessions with an intention to return to face to face sessions once the current pandemic has become more settled.  I understand that online working might feel unusual or impersonal and I am happy to talk through any concerns you might have about working this way.  

My first session

The initial counselling session will focus on understanding how counselling can best support the difficulties you are facing. We will assess whether counselling is the right step for you and what other support might be needed.  This first session also offers an opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the counselling process and a chance for you to decide whether I am the right counsellor to support you.  

We will talk through the counselling agreement, covering confidentiality and agreeing on a way of working together going forward.

About me and my therapy practice

The role of a supervisor is to support the counsellor in their counselling practice, providing a space for open reflection on all aspects of the counselling process. 

My supervision practice is firmly based on the Hawkins and Shohet Process Model of Supervision, also known as the 7 eyed model.  I offer a supportive and collaborative environment, actively encouraging counsellors to continue to grow their knowledge and skills and expand their practice and experience and to provide the most appropriate counselling service to their client.
