I am a qualified Psychosynthesis Counsellor and Therapist, registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work in an integrative way, drawing upon a range of skills and experience built over many years of working with clients in different settings. I have supported a wide range of people to move though difficulties, build strategies and resources and uncover their potential.
My approach focuses upon the relationship between mind, body and feelings; developing consious awareness; mindfulness; self compassion and self care. I am a trauma informed clinician. I have experience of working with addictions in the 12 step model. My influences and studies includes Jungian Psychology; Mindfulness; Polyvagal Theory, Internal Family Systems, Creativity in Therapy, Self Actualisation and Coaching.
I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling from The Psychosynthesis Trust, London. I am a BACP registered therapist.
I have 2 years experience working as an honorary counselling therapist at MindOut LGBTQ+ mental health service in Brighton, U.K.
I trained in counselling and mentoring with OSIF London in 2006, and have 14 years experience in offering 1-1 sessions to clients from a wide range of backgrounds.
I have supported a wide range of clients through a change process using coaching and personal development tools. Over the past 15 years, I have facilitated personal development groups and led workshops covering topics such as archetypes and the shadow, the meaning of myth, the power of symbols, transformational rituals and meditation.
I also have many years experience of working in the field of death and dying, offering bereavement support. Prior to this, I worked in the field of mental health at managerial level, training and supervising staff who supported vulnerable adults with complex mental health needs. On a personal note, I am originally from Australia, and have lived in the U.K. for 25 years.
I'm passionate about travel, ancient history, psychology and art. I have lived for a short time in the U.S.A. and in Egypt, which has given me experience of different cultures and belief systems. I have practiced meditation and personal development throughout my life which has provided me with intuition and insight that informs how I work with clients.
“Rebecca ran a workshop for the As You Are Counselling Service in 2010; it was a real treat to be part of this wonderful one day workshop. Rebecca’s attention to detail and her genuine skill for creating and holding a space ensured all participants felt part of the experience from the outset. We were presented with opportunities to explore our own meaning of spirituality and faith, how faith could impact on the therapeutic alliance, and prejudices and stereotypes. As Service Manager I received very positive feedback from all counsellors that attended the workshop, and counsellors continue to share instances where the workshop has been useful in their practice. Rebecca is skilled and thoughtful facilitator and I would highly recommend this workshop for any professionals working with diverse client groups.”

“Rebecca's work as a counsellor has great integrity. She evokes a gentle, yet powerful presence of holding and healing in which I always feel totally safe, heard and respected for who I am. I have made some profound shifts in my sessions with Rebecca. I love this way of working on my 'stuff'!”
