Rebecca Barry is a trainee integrative psychotherapist. She believes there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy and uses techniques from a range of modalities, such as person-centred therapy, psychodynamic therapy and CBT. This allows Rebecca to find the best ‘tool’ from her therapeutic toolbox to solve the presenting problems in a way that best suits the needs of the client. Over the course of her sessions, Rebecca aims to provide clients with the opportunity to build their own emotional toolbox. This will empower clients to find more effective and healthier ways of coping with difficulties when they arise in the future.
Having previously worked as a midwife, Rebecca has experience of working in maternity and women’s health services. She has supported clients through gendered issues such as birth trauma, FGM, and postnatal depression. She has also worked for SolaceWomen’s Aid where she supported survivors of domestic and sexual violence.Additionally, Rebecca has a diploma in Art and Design and a subsequent interest in art therapy. She believes that creativity and imagination play pivotal roles in increasing emotional and mental wellbeing and draws on this concept to think of creative solutions in collaboration with the client.
Rebecca is a member of the BACP. She works within The Awareness Centre’s NHS counselling service and sees patients at a GP surgery in Lambeth. Rebecca is currently studying towards a master’s degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
