Does life feel like its getting on top of you?
Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?
... to explore your thoughts and feelings
... to make changes to your life
... to get back to being the person you want to be

My name is Rebecca and I am an experienced and accredited professional therapist working in mental health for over 20 years. I have worked in a number of NHS settings, for the last 12 years I have been working as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBT) and, additionally, for the last 3 years as an Interpersonal Psychotherapist (IPT) . Prior to this I worked as a Registered Mental Health Nurse (RMN).

Throughout our lives we can experience difficult times, such as feeling stressed and anxious, or we might experience significant life changes such as redundancy or bereavement, or having a hard time with our relationships. Sometimes these difficulties can get on top of us and start to affect our mood and self esteem and we might need a little help to get ourselves back on track.  Counselling / Psychotherapy can provide that. Therapy can help to increase self understanding and give us tools to manage.  For therapy to be effective it is important that you can connect with your therapist, that you feel safe, comfortable and understood.  The relationship is just as important as the therapy.  I believe that warmth, kindness, compassion, empathy, openness, and a willingness to be alongside you are valuable attributes of being a psychotherapist. I want you to feel hopeful that your future can improve. My training and expertise will enable us to explore your problems together and, at your pace, we will collaboratively explore ways of making changes to enable you to move forward.

I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.

I have extensive experience in working with clients in a wide range of psychological and emotional difficulties:

  • Stress / Life changes
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Relationships
  • Panic Attacks
  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Bereavement
  • Redundancy
  • Depression,
  • Health Anxiety
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Social Anxiety
  • Phobias
  • Morbid Jealousy

    In addition to working individually with clients I have years of experience running CBT based Groups for people experiencing low self esteem, anxiety and depression. I am also a Supervisor to other group facilitators .
    If you are looking for a group to be set up, e.g. perhaps your company would like to run such a group for employees, then please do contact me to discuss. Alternatively if you are a facilitator of a group and require supervision
    I am also able to offer 'Introduction to CBT' Workshops.

    I work online and in Hove with Brighton and Hove Psychotherapy, 'CLICK HERE' for full contact details. I work Friday evenings and Saturday mornings.

    Contact me to arrange a free telephone consultation so that you can decide if therapy would be helpful for you. If I cannot help you I can refer you on to someone who can.
