My Approach

At Stepping Stones Counselling and Psychotherapy Limited, we provide a range of approaches for clients, from Psychodynamic to Person Centred; CBT to highly focused trauma work; EMDR and EFT to Mindfulness.

Rebekah is both a Consultant Psychotherapist and Clinical Lead at Stepping Stones, and holds over 28 years of experience in working with those experiencing mental health difficulties. Her level of expertise and knowledge has ensured that she only selects the most skilled therapists to join her at Stepping Stones, and it is through this that she has now formed an outstanding team who are widely recognised for their work with 999 personnel across the UK as well as with many private clients who are experiencing wellbeing and mental health related challenges.

About Me

Rebekah is a Psychodynamically trained Psychotherapist, fully Certified EMDR Therapist, Trauma Therapist and Clinical Supervisor. She is an ACTO Approved Online Therapist and CISM Practitioner, and has attended many major incidents to provide debrief. Rebekah has over 28 years of experience in working with people experiencing mental health difficulties within the NHS, initially as a Registered Nurse and later as a therapist, seeing people from a wide variety of contexts and with a mix of different issues and challenges. She continues to serve the NHS, working part of her week for a large London Trust as a Specialist Psychotherapist.

In private practice Rebekah leads a large, successful and well respected therapy service, Stepping Stones Counselling and Psychotherapy Limited, which she set up in 2017. The service has grown to now incorporate a team of 14 therapists from a range of backgrounds and with a wide range of skills and expertise. Rebekah and her team work with a wide range of clients from all over the UK as well as abroad. Stepping Stones is also a recognised training placement for student counsellors, and Rebekah along with one other therapist on her team provide all supervision for trainee therapists, with Rebekah also providing supervision for the trained therapists working in the service.

Rebekah and two other members of her team are able to work with couples, with Rebekah using her systemic training and experience. Couples work is possible both face to face and via video calling.

Rebekah is a practising Ecotherapist, and is currently completing a PhD (Psychotherapy) where her thesis is concerned with the client experience of Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy which is taken outside into nature.

Since 2017, Rebekah has specialised in working with 999 personnel and offers a reduced fee rate for Police, Ambulance and Fire personnel. Stepping Stones now holds two major contracts to provide therapy for Ambulance Personnel, and additionally works in conjunction with police and fire departments to provide therapeutic interventions to their staff teams also. Rebekah works closely with wellbeing hubs across the emergency services, to provide timely, reliable and expert therapy for 999 staff, and the team at Stepping Stones are well experienced in recognising the unique challenges faced by 999 personnel and their families.

Rebekah and her team tend to work within a '12 session model', but all decisions surrounding the duration of sessions will be agreed with the client at the assessment session. Long term therapy is also available, and Rebekah and her team additionally welcome EAP / insurance based referrals.

All face to face sessions are held in Worthing, West Sussex, Haywards Heath, Mid Sussex, and central London with fees dependent upon location. Sessions are 50 minutes long, with some extended sessions for EMDR. Payment is due at the time of the session.

Sessions can alternatively be conducted online via email, IM or webcam (EMDR only accesses webcam), as well as face to face in wither Worthing or Haywards Heath. Rebekah has yet to return to her London consulting rooms.

Rebekah additionally has several years of experience in supporting and teaching students and offers reduced fee sessions for trainee counsellors. She has recently finished teaching on Counselling Programmes in Sussex, and is due to commence teaching on Counselling programmes with a well known University in the Autumn of 2021.

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

Rebekah continues to work within the NHS, and is now covering a senior post in London as a Clinical Psychotherapist, where she specialises in working with those who have palliative care needs. This includes working with both patients and carers who are approaching the end of life stage.
Rebekah is a qualified and very experienced EMDR therapist, and has two other EMDR therapists working alongside her at Stepping Stones. The EMDR team have worked extensively using EMDR, using this highly effective therapy with clients who have experienced a range of traumas, are diagnosed with PTSD / cPTSD, those who have addictions, suffer with anxiety and have phobias, to name a few.
Rebekah has extensive experience - over 28 years - in working with those who have mental health issues, and carefully chooses her team to also reflect this experience and level of expertise. Rebekah is passionate about providing the most appropriate, timely and high quality support to those who are experiencing mental health difficulties and she works proactively in the mental health community to aid the movement towards proactive wellbeing support, thereby aiming to reduce mental health crises.
Rebekah is a Clinical Supervisor, and is awaiting confirmation of her completion of a L6 Diploma in Individual and Group Supervision. Rebekah have worked with trainee and qualified counsellors as their supervisor over several years. She is supported in this provision by two other therapists who are also supervisors.
