Counselling and Pychotherapy
​​Rebecca provides counselling and psychotherapy for Women and Children. Counselling provides short term focussed therapy whereas psychotherapy allows for longterm in depth therapy.

Rebecca has extensive experience in supporting individuals through the effects of  trauma, grief and loss, anxiety and depression and other health and wellbeing issues. Counselling aims to facilitate positive change from within to assist with personal and relational challenges and difficult life circumstances​

Art and Expressive Therapies
​​Art Therapy is a recognised psychotherapy for individuals who have experienced trauma. An Art Therapist is required to have completed a two year Masters level degree in addition to a a degree in health sciences, social work or similar.

What is an Art Therapist?
An Art Therapist  is a  psychological therapist  who  has arts-based  experience  plus training  in psychological interventions  using  drama,  music or art  as their  primary mode  of  communication. Arts therapies can  help to  improve:  general  development; social interaction and communication skills

and support  mental and physical rehabilitation.

​​Psychological interventions aim  to  improve  a person’s state  of  mind and  wellbeing; for example,  to reduce  symptoms  such  as anxiety,  confusion,  pain  and  depression.
An  Arts  Therapist  does  this by  helping  the individual to  experience  themselves and others in different  ways through  an  arts-based  activity  within  a  therapeutic framework.
Using  arts-based  psychological interventions is particularly  helpful when emotions  are too confusing  to express  verbally;  when  verbal communication  is difficult; or when words are not enough or too much to bear.
