Life can be so busy, leaving little or no time for nurturing our mental health. Therapy is the ultimate in self care.
It’s been a tough few years, on top of whatever else might have been going on for you, it’s understandable not to know where to turn next but it’s important to know you’re not alone.
Therapy can support you through any difficult period of your life.
I am a fully qualified counselling psychotherapist. I offer a safe, neutral, non-judgmental space to explore any thoughts or feelings that have been prominent in your life, whether in the past, the present or quite possibly both. Together we work to create a therapeutic relationship, meeting as equals to empower and encourage you to explore and recognise patterns of behaviour that may be helpful for you to address. We can work together to set new, achievable goals for a different future and to implement change.
I am registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) having demonstrated high standards of competent practice by working under their ethical framework. I am committed to ongoing professional development and my work is fully insured.
I hold an enhanced DBS certificate, which means I am suitable to work with children and adults in a therapeutic capacity. Although, I currently only work with Adult clients.
I use an integrative approach, which means I use a combination of therapeutic styles that bring together different elements of specific therapies. As an Integrative therapist I believe no single approach can treat every client in all situations. Rather, I consider everyone as an individual and my counselling techniques are tailored to each client’s needs and personal circumstances.
I have experience in working with young adults as well as people with greater life experience.
I work with a diverse range of clients from many differing backgrounds and cultures, as well as the wide range of issues they bring. Clients describe me as warm, safe and non-judgemental, creating a comfortable environment to allow people to talk openly, often about things they have kept hidden.
After the things we have all endured these past couple of years, people have suffered losses in many capacities. Perhaps you have been left with feelings of uncertainty in your job or possibly relationships, with family members, partners or friends. Maybe these relationships are more strained than usual.
Losing someone or something you love can be very painful and may come with difficult and unexpected emotions, such as shock, anger, grief and guilt. I have an in-depth knowledge working with all kinds of change, including loss and bereavement.
I welcome clients who are facing any number of issues. I have experience working with bereavement, loss, child-loss, miscarriage, depression, cancer, anxiety, family, attachment issues, relationships, divorce, identity including supporting LGBTQ+ clients, sexuality, suicidal feelings and ideation, self-harm, sexual assault, clients in crisis, abuse, addiction, anger, PTSD, personal development, self-esteem, sex-related issues, social anxiety and stress.
I also have experience working with clients to create crisis and safety plans if you’re feeling unsafe or suicidal. Safety planning is a structured and proactive way to help you plan a range of activities and sources of support you can use at the right time to help you prevent or manage a developing crisis.
Our first meeting together is an opportunity to see if you feel comfortable talking with me, gives you an insight into the experience of therapy and enables you to ask any questions you may have about the process. It’s understandable to feel nervous whether you are new to therapy, or even if you aren’t. Wherever you are, I will meet you there.
After our initial meet you may decide to book in a first session or choose to go away and reflect on your experience before deciding whether to continue.
I offer a free 20-minute Zoom introduction meeting, during which I’ll listen to what you’re hoping to achieve, explain a little more about the process and answer any questions you may have. There is no obligation to decide there and then, you are welcome to go away and think about whether we are the right fit.
I work with individuals in both a longer-term and a shorter time-limited period. I usually suggest 4-6 sessions to begin with. I am currently working on Zoom. I provide weekly 50-minute sessions. All you need is a quiet, confidential place you feel safe to talk.
Please fill in the contact box below and I will get back to you as soon as possible (usually within 24 hours). Or send an email to email@example.com if you prefer.
Below is just a few examples of client feedback-
Many thanks again for being exactly what I needed at such a difficult point in my life.
You've been an amazing help, and the best listener. I appreciate everything you've done for me. Thank you so much for being there for me, and I wish you all the best!
I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you've done for me, the sessions I had over summer have had such a positive impact on my life and really changed me as a person. Thank you so much for your time.
Extremely understanding and validates how I feel. Listens and understands and picks up on what I need help with.
I truly feel the 'safe space'. I feel like going on a discovery together. She is always excited and at the same time down to earth. Exactly what you need to go on a discovery with someone.
Becca shows a excellent determination to finding the routes of problems. She displays brilliant active listening skills and is able to ask the questions that need asking. She is able to help me to look at situations with different perspectives. Her kind, open a warm person centred approach allows me to confidently open up about my feelings and thoughts, I feel safe sharing these thoughts with her and she treats them with the upmost respect with zero judgement which makes me feel a lot more normal and not so alone. Thank you Becca, you’ve been amazing.
