About Me

My name is Becky Messitt and I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor. This means that within my practice, I seamlessly draw upon various therapeutic approaches and techniques, allowing me to tailor counselling to your unique needs. I believe that within you lie the solutions to navigate life’s challenges. During our counselling sessions, conducted in a secure and nurturing environment, you’ll explore your feelings and confront your fears. In my perspective, counselling acts as the bridge connecting your current state with the goals you aim to achieve.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and fully uphold their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling. With experience in working with both adults and young people, I address a range of issues. Besides my private practice, I also volunteer at a community counselling agency.

The Essence of Counselling

Counselling is a profound journey of self-exploration and growth. Drawing from a diverse range of approaches including Rogers, Freud, Attachment theory, Psychosocial theory, Person-Centred therapy, Existentialism and Jungian psychology, we’ll explore what resonates with you within an integrative framework.


Together, we will understand and untangle your feelings and behaviours, gaining deeper insights into understanding yourself and the decisions that shape your life. This process will empower you to revaluate your lifestyle and decisions, clearing the path for an authentic and genuine life journey. Above all, the most vital asset in this endeavour is the relationship we cultivate.


Our initial session will serve as an assessment where we can explore what you feel you need help with and determine how we might work together.

I offer short term work as well as longer, open ended therapy to suit your needs. Regardless of the duration you choose, I generally recommend committing to an initial minimum of six sessions. This timeframe allows us to develop our therapeutic relationship and delve deeper into your presenting issues more comprehensively.

Fees

Each counselling session lasts for 50 minutes, and the cost is £45 per session. All fees are required to be paid in advance of each session through bank transfer

Cancellation policy

I recognise that life can sometimes disrupt our plans. If you need to reschedule, please let me know atleast 24 hours before your session, and we can arrange a new appointment. Appointments cancelled within 24 hours will be subject to payment.

No Cost Consultation

I offer a 15-minute initial telephone consultation at no cost. This conversation allows us to discuss your concerns and assess whether I am the right therapist for you. It is really important that you feel comfortable, as honesty is key to achieving the most beneficial outcomes in your therapeutic process.

Considerations for online sessions

Working remotely from the comfort of your home can come with its complexities, so I propose you carefully consider this option, particularly when it comes to ensuring that you have a secure and private environment that will be conducive to upholding confidentiality.

Get in touch

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about how counselling works, or to arrange an initial assessment appointment. This enables us to discuss the reasons you are thinking of coming to counselling, whether it could be helpful for you and whether I am the right therapist to help.


You can also call me on 07903 589699 if you would prefer to leave a message or speak to me first. I am happy to discuss any queries or questions you may have prior to arranging an initial appointment.
