Rebecca Rogers Counselling BSc (Hons) Therapeutic Counselling, MBACP
in Farnham, Surrey

About Me

I am trained integratively which means I am able to combine tools and techniques from different counselling theories, to best meet your personal needs. I work in a primarily person-centred way but am also informed by other therapeutic approaches including attachment theory and behavioural coping tools that help with day to day living. My aim is to offer you a non-judgemental therapy space in which to build a collaborative relationship that feels safe and supportive. Within that relationship I believe my role is not about telling you what to do or making decisions for you (although I might share resources with you if we both feel it would be helpful), but to support you in exploring your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationships to find greater clarity and understanding through increased self-awareness.

I have experience supporting a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, men's mental health, family dynamics, relationship problems, loss or change of identity and self-esteem difficulties. I also have a particular interest in working with grief and loss having spent several years as a volunteer bereavement counsellor in a hospice, supporting palliative care patients and their families. My experience also includes offering a safe and supportive counselling space for carers of people living with life-limiting and chronic illnesses.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I adhere to their Ethical Framework and professional standards. I am committed to providing the best service I can to all of my clients and am supported by regular supervision to ensure my practice is safe and current.

My Own Journey

Before training to become a counsellor I spent many years working in the education sector, both state and independent, in HR administration and training. Over time I realised that my relationships with people, both staff and students, were far more important to me than working with statistics and spreadsheets and that I very much wanted to re-train for a career that I had been interested in for a long time. I love what I do and it is a privilege to sit alongside each of my clients and be part of their story.
