Rebecca Richardson

Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor.

About Me: 

Rebecca is a qualified Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor, registered with the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and involves both humanistic and psychodynamic approaches with clients. She has experience working with both adults and children; and currently works as a school counsellor at a secondary school alongside running her private practice – Mind Space Counselling. Additionally, she continues to volunteer to offer counselling at a counselling agency. 

The word ‘space’ is used to describe an area which is free, available and unoccupied. She believes it is a word which resonates with therapeutic counselling, as it not only provides a space to pause, look and process particular areas of concern but can help to gain access to aspects of ourselves just outside of awareness. Rebecca’s therapeutic hope is to work together towards your desired outcome in a gentle yet inquisitive manner. She believes that discovering and recovering a deeper insight into the way we experience the world, based on the context of our individual lives, can help navigate and turn us towards new possibilities that may facilitate the changes required to enable personal growth and to live with ease. Fundamentally, the counselling relationship is a key factor for a beneficial outcome. She endeavours to provide a space that is safe and supportive, one that is non-judgemental, trusting and which offers a compassionate understanding to enable you to explore and make sense of what is causing difficulty. 

Presenting Concerns:

Rebecca has experience in helping individuals with a range of emotional and psychological issues such as; relationship difficulties, loss, low self-esteem, transitional periods in life, stress, anxiety, low mood and depression and when things seem and feel stuck. With this in mind, there is not a ‘one size fits all’ therapeutic modality and therefore will work with you and support you in a way that feels most effective for you. This may involve an exploration of what has gone before as a means to understand difficulties in the present; and at times may offer suggestions to work creatively, collaboratively goal set, incorporate mindfulness and include supportive challenges. All of these interventions are invitational and without obligation. Fundamentally, her commitment is to facilitate greater self-awareness in a way that opens up choices to respond, relate and behave differently to what is presently causing discomfort and improve mental well-being.

Rebecca sees clients face-to-face or online via Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
