About Me...

Hi, I’m Rebecca. I am a neurodivergent counsellor/therapist. I am an autistic woman with ADHD (combined type) and a BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered counsellor/therapist and neurodiversity consultant. I also have lived experience of chronic illness (ME/CFS and PoTS). From 2021, I became a CTAA (Complimentary Therapists Accredited Association) Accredited Strategic Life Coach and TFT/EFT (Thought Field Therapy/Emotional Freedom Technique) and hypnotherapy practitioner.

My mission is to empower and inspire women to reconnect with themselves by tapping into their inner resources. This will enable them to move forward from the past and live more authentically, creating the life and future that they have dreamt of.

Life is full of twists and turns that can throw us off course, sometimes making us feel unsure of ourselves and our purpose. This can cause a disconnect that can impact us in ways we might not have imagined and make us feel held back, lost, or ‘stuck’ in life.

I understand what it means to feel this way, as I have been there too, but by reconnecting with my authentic self, my life changed for the better.

Let me show you how…

Rebecca ready to help support and empower you
