“I believe the key to therapeutic change is increased self-understanding, and my goal is to help clients gain greater insight by reflecting on their experiences and reconnecting with their strengths.”

"I am committed to working alongside clients to help them make sense of their experiences and why they relate and respond in the ways they do. I believe that key to understanding this is to reflect on significant experiences, relational patterns and the different contexts and environments one is situated within.

I believe we all have the inner resources and resilience to cope with life’s difficulties. I endeavour to help people reconnect with their personal and relational resources and values, and with increased insight and compassion find a way to move forward, towards what feels personally meaningful.

I value working for CPG because of their commitment to providing evidence-based treatment that works."

Rebecca is experienced at providing thorough and thoughtful psychological assessment and delivering effective evidenced-based treatment for adults who are experiencing a wide range of emotional difficulties, including anxiety, stress, work-related stress, burnout, disillusionment, low mood, adjustment to loss, eating difficulties, relationship problems and distress stemming from traumatic experiences.

Rebecca draws upon a range of evidence-based therapy models and techniques including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion-Focused Therapy and systematic and narrative therapy, tailoring therapy to meet individual needs and preferences.

Rebecca completed her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University College London and has worked for the NHS for over 10 years. Currently, she works in an NHS Health Psychology service.

Within this service she specialises in helping people adjust to living with long-term health conditions and illness, including chronic pain and fatigue. She also works with people with obesity who are struggling to lose weight by providing a psychological understanding of the relationship with food and body size and a psychologically informed weight loss approach. She has published research on the role of self-compassion and self-criticism in the context of  binge eating behaviour.

With the onset of COVID, Rebecca was deployed to provide psychological therapy to hospital frontline staff within the NHS. This involves helping staff cope with the anxiety, stress, burnout, grief, guilt and trauma reactions triggered by the COVID pandemic.

Prior to working in health psychology, Rebecca worked in a Primary Care service with adults experiencing difficulties with depression and anxiety. This included helping people with obsessive compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety, health anxiety, social anxiety, panic disorder, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder and other common problems such as work-related stress, poor sleep, low confidence and difficulties managing anger.
