Hello, I'm Rebecca...


I am an eclectic therapist which means that I work with different types of therapies in order to find the right fit for you as an individual; I am trained in many different types of therapies and techniques and will tailor the sessions to ensure that it is the most helpful to you.    

I use my knowledge and training of a variety of  different approaches such as Counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focussed Therapy (SFT) and Person Centered Therapy - working predominantly with Hypnotherapy and NLP. 

It is extremely important to me that my clients feel comfortable talking to me and feel able to trust me; therefore, I see the initial consultation as a chance for us to get to know each other and start building a therapeutic relationship.

Like many therapists, I have had therapy myself and have had both helpful and unhelpful experiences. I work transparently and see us both as equals in the therapeutic relationship, meaning that I will work alongside you rather than directing you.

I love my job and feel honoured to be able to work with so many different people to support them in achieving their goals.

No two therapy or training sessions are the same and I pride myself in creating bespoke treatment plans for each client.

I am committed to supporting my clients to achieve their goals in the most effective method and within a timely manner.
