Rebecca Phipps, FD (Open), Dip.Couns - Psychotherapist

IMG_7961.HEIC

I am a BACP Accredited and NCPS Professionally Accredited Counsellor, specialising in Person Centred Therapy. Working in a person centred way, in which the therapeutic relationship is central, I will provide a calm and confidential environment for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and experiences, supporting you to find your own answers and solutions. I will offer you empathy and congruence in a non-judgemental safe space enabling you to feel heard and understood. I work in a non-directive way, trusting you to set the agenda during sessions, whilst supporting you to find your own understanding of your experiences as a basis for healing.

Whatever your issues may be, talking through your difficulties or experiences can enable you to process your trauma or uncomfortable emotions enabling you to find an inner sense of calm. We'll always work at a pace that feels safe and comfortable for you in a relaxing counselling setting. I can also use integrative techniques during sessions to enhance the work we do together.

I work with diversity within my practice, providing counselling to clients from different backgrounds and with a variety of mental health difficulties, ranging from common mental health issues to serious mental illness. I have extensive experience providing counselling to victims and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence. I also have much experience working with clients with trauma, shame, mental distress, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, amongst many other issues. I have several years experience working voluntarily at a charity whose vision is to ensure that fewer people die by suicide, offering emotional support to callers with suicidal ideation and emotional distress, nationwide and worldwide.
