Hi I’m Rebecca.  I know how overwhelming it can be searching for a counsellor, as there are so many different types of counselling therapies.  I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor working pluralistically.  This means that I will tailor sessions to be what would work for you as a unique individual.  We would work together to find the best type of counselling for you.  I work in person centred counselling, CBT and psychodynamic counselling, amongst others.  This means that therapy will align with your wishes.  Many clients prefer a mix of approaches if this would suit you best.

If you ever feel like you are “stuck”, and challenges are blocking you from moving forward, or historic events in the bigger picture of life/family are holding you back, then counselling can provide you with the tools to see a clearer path to a happier future.

I specialise in trauma and anxiety, but work in a number of areas including depression, abuse, bereavement relationship issues and low self-worth. This list is by no means exhaustive and just an example of areas I can work with.  Please contact me if you have a different issue to see if I can help, or signpost you to other services that may help.  I am committed to supporting your work towards facing what you want and need to face, at a pace that suits you, a session at a time.

Sessions can take place face to face in my private therapy room in Selby, or counselling online is an option.  The most important thing is you feeling comfortable.

I can also offer a free chat on the phone before booking a session, as I know it’s important to find the right counsellor for you.

The area I take the biggest amount of pride in, is offering a relaxed, friendly, calm, and most importantly, non-judgemental environment. Your privacy will always be paramount.  I operate from my purposefully designed therapy building for maximum comfort.

Ultimately, I endeavour to leave you with the empowerment and the tools to understand yourself more fully with an ability for continuing growth and happiness.
