Counselling and Psychotherapy
Mindfulness and Mindful Meditation
CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
Talking therapies have recently been reported as being of high benefit, with psychodynamic psychotherapy noted within newer research as being highly effective.
Rebekah's approach to therapy enables each client, as an individual, to process and work through thoughts,patterns of behaviour and life challenges, as well as meet times of crisis with a reflective mind. Exploration of ones more deep rooted issues is also highly possible within this approach. Rebekah's work with people is focused upon enabling them to develop and improve their quality of life, and explore any problems and difficulties, whatever they may be caused by.
Life's stress can derive from a wide variety of sources including relationship difficulties, work pressures,family histories and dynamics, as well as social anxieties, self-esteem and image issues and other mental health difficulties. Human experience also often involves trauma and bereavement, which, when unexplored, can lead to noticeable relational difficulties in all manners of life, not just with those we are closest to.
Mindfulness is being used more widely as using this method of support at times of emotional stress becomes more well understood and accepted within societies and cultures.
Rebekah uses Mindfulness principles and practices within her work with people as appropriate, as well as practising Mindfulness herself regularly.
She offers individual Mindfulness sessions as well as a weekly small group at two of her venues. In individual sessions the focus is tailored to the individual's specific needs, whilst in the groups Rebekah offers a broad experience of Mindfulness and Mindful Meditation with the overall focus upon relaxation.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, also known as CBT, is a form of talking therapy that helps the patient to manage their problems by changing the way they behave and how they think. CBT is mostly used to treat depression and anxiety, but has been shown to also be useful with other mental and physical health problems.
CBT is based on the idea that your feelings, thoughts, physical sensations and actions are unified, and negative feelings and thoughts trap you in a brutal cycle. CBT aims to help the patient with their overwhelming problems in a positive way by breaking into different parts. The patient is shown how to change their negative patterns, which will improve the way they feel. Dissimilar to other talking treatments, CBT only deals with the patients current problems, rather than issues from their past. CBT looks for useful ways that can improve the patient’s state of mind on a day by day basis.
