Rebecca Smith

Person-Centred Counsellor

Approach and background

My aim is to provide you with a safe, confidential space, where you can feel heard and understood.

I will listen carefully and empathically to whatever you bring, and support you in exploring, at your own pace, your thoughts, feelings, and any difficulties, past or present. This is with the aim of helping you build a deeper understanding of yourself and your issues, alleviate distress and make choices that are right for you.

I believe that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is at the heart of successful therapy. Therefore, I am committed to building a therapeutic relationship with you, based on trust and openness, that offers an opportunity for growth and healing.

I am trained in the Person-Centred Approach to counselling. This approachis based on the belief that you are the expert when it comes to you and your life, and given the right support have the capacity to overcome issues and flourish.

I aim to facilitate a space where you can explore your inner world, tune into your feelings, and get to know yourself on a deeper level. Together, we can start to untangle what you’re experiencing, to give feelings a name and work out what’s going on for you. Through this process you will find more meaning, make effective changes in the way you want to live your life and discover your inner strengths and resources. I believe this will help you heal and recover from past difficulties and lead to living a fuller life.

Training, qualifications, and experience

I trained at the Metanoia Institute, and I have a degree and a diploma in Person-Centred Counselling. I am a registered member of the BACP and abide by its code of ethical practice.

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, including depression, stress and anxiety, bereavement and loss, life transitions, relationship and family issues and low self-esteem.

Availability, fees, and contact details

My fee is £60 for a 50-minute session, face-to-face or on Zoom. I offer a reduced fee of £50 for the first session. I work in-person at The Brixton Practice on Mondays.

I offer a free 15-minute consultation where we can have a chat and you can decide if you’d like to book a first session. Our first session will be an opportunity to identify what’s brought you to therapy and for us to decide whether we think we are a good fit.

I offer both short-term and open-ended counselling to adults.
