About me and my therapy practice
I am a humanistic integrative counsellor and work in private practice and also for a mental health charity. I have many years' experience working with individuals experiencing poor mental health in training and in facilitating mental health support groups for Mind in Wiltshire and Dorset.
"Becka has a rare ability to help people tackle the most deeply rooted issues in a gentle but determined way. I started our sessions after a domestic violence assault and as time progressed, Becka assisted me in overcoming issues that had plagued me for decades. I had a painful anxiety symptom in my throat as well as a history of suicide attempts, substance abuse, low self esteem and unhealthy relationships. Becka enabled me to recognise and process the trauma behind the pain, sharing techniques which are now an invaluable part of my toolkit. Her approach is pragmatic, thoughtful and inspiring - always empowering. My life is no longer driven by my angry, hurting inner child; but by my fully integrated, loving self. I will be forever grateful to Becka for helping me finally free myself from the rut I was stuck in for so long. I am overjoyed that I can now navigate and direct my life in a confident and positive way. I wholeheartedly recommend Becka as a counsellor - you could not find a better person to journey those rocky paths with." (Testimonial by S.M. 2020)
Counselling can help you make changes, explore your patterns, your past, the things that you don't understand about yourself or others. Maybe what happened in the past is still affecting you, perhaps you've never been able to really talk about it. Counselling can help you understand want you want for your future; what you want to change so you can feel happier or more at home in yourself, your relationships and your day to day life. Counselling can help you change how you relate to others and express yourself, feel more confident to be the real you, and find some peace with your past by working through it with a qualified therapist.
Making contact and talking to a qualified counsellor takes courage and is a really positive step towards starting to feel better. There are so many reasons why we all need support sometimes; depression, stress, loneliness and anxiety can cause a great deal of pain. Life throws us overwhelming challenges sometimes, I am here to help you find ways to cope.
My first session
We do an assessment together on your first session so that I can get a better understanding of what is going on for you, the factors involved and gather some more background information. This might mean that this initial session is a little longer than our normal session time of 50 minutes, but no more than 1.5 hours.
Doing an assessment is important to support working safely together, it's is also a good time for you to ask for any more information that you might want to know. I can send you a copy of the assessment before our 1st session so you have a chance to think about it before we meet and even fill in some sections yourself beforehand. You can let me know if this is something you'd like to do in our initial telephone consultation.
