Is counselling for me?
Becky believes that anyone can benefit from counselling and it’s not just for those who see themselves as struggling in some way. Counselling is a unique relationship which allows for self-exploration in an accepting and encouraging environment. Being truly heard is a powerful experience and one which has the potential to be transformational.
You may be coping with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, stress, bereavement, self-harm, trauma or relationship difficulties in which case counselling has evidenced-based research to show it is effective at helping these issues. However, if you don’t ‘fit in’ to one of these categories counselling can still be of huge value to help you to thrive in your work, relationships and life.
What is an integrative counsellor?
There are many types of counselling models based on different schools of thought. You may have heard of the famous ones such as Psychodynamic, Person-Centred or Gestalt. An integrative counsellor will have knowledge of many of these approaches and will draw on different aspects of these models in order to tailor-make a counselling style of their own. Becky has completed a master’s degree in Integrative Psychotherapy and has fine-tuned her style. The approaches she draws from include Person-Centred, Jungian, Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. She always starts with what the client wants as she believes that counselling is a collaborative relationship which allows the client to work through the issues that they bring in a safe and supported way.

What happens when I get in touch?
When you first get in touch Becky will suggest you meet for a initial consultation session. This is a kind of ‘trial’ session to see if you would like to go ahead with counselling. During that session you will discuss your hopes for counselling and she will explain the structure, including confidentiality, the making and storing of notes and boundaries. If at the end of the consultation meeting you decide that you do not wish to go ahead this is no problem at all.
If you would like to arrange a consultation session or if you want any more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07827318351. Becky would be pleased to hear from you.
