Hello, I'm Rebecca...

Qualifications and Training:

I have worked in mental health since graduating from University with a First Class BSc Honours Degree in Psychology and Counselling in 2010 and have been running Eden since 2012.

Over the years, I have worked with families, adults and young people supporting them with mental health difficulties, systemic difficulties and socio-ecological difficulties.

I have worked in the private sector, for charities and most recently for the NHS. I was also involved in the Heads Up CIO 'pop up trauma centre' following the Manchester attack after attending specialist trauma intervention training with Professor Gidron and Dr Naomi Baum.

I completed my Hypnotherapy Training in 2012, where I achieved a Hypnotherapy Practitioner Diploma (accredited by the General Hypnotherapy Register) as well as Diplomas in NLP and Hypnotic Coaching and have never looked back!

I am have recently completed my Post-graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with The University of Manchester & Greater Manchester Mental Health Trust.

I am also trained in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Multi-Systemic Therapy for children and families, Youth Connect 5 Parent training and Incredible Years Parenting training.

In addition to my therapeutic training, I have also completed my Level 4 Preparing to teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector and have experience of writing and delivering training courses on a variety of different topics, to a wide audience including families, schools, professionals and commercial enterprises.

My therapeutic style:

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 work 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. 

Memberships and Accreditation:

I am a Registered Practitioner with the General Hypnotherapy Register, a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), and a student member of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) meaning that I adhere to their strict codes of conduct.  

I hold an advanced DBS check as well as being fully insured to provide therapy and workshops.

I recieve regular supervision from a CBT accredited supervisor and commit to developing my training with continual professional development.

I look forward to meeting you..
