Rebecca Macey

Accredited Cognitive Behavioural & Couples Therapist

Hello my name is Rebecca, I am a therapist with more than 14 years experience.

I aim to create a supportive space in which to explore difficulties together & to help people take an active approach to feeling better. I am a warm and compassionate therapist, with a collaborative style.

Cognitive Behavourial Therapy(CBT)

CBT is a popular type of therapy because research has shown that it is helpful for lots of problems, especially stress, worry, low self esteem, anxiety problems, and low mood/depression.

CBT is a practical, active, and structured type of therapy. It is generally a short-term approach, where we together explore what may have contributed to the development of your difficulties & importantly what is keeping the problem going now. Put simply, CBT is about identifying unhelpful patterns in how we think & how we behave.

It’s a common misconception that in CBT we do not talk about past experiences- we do & it can be really important, to express feelings & to understand how things from the past might be impacting us now.

I will help you develop strategies & skills to manage emotional distress, build coping and resilience. This can provide short term relief & a model to help with future life stressors, and improve long term health & wellbeing.

Couples Therapy

I offer a supportive space to think together about difficulties within your relationship and work towards important changes. It’s a balanced process, where both partners have space to talk & different perspectives are shared & valued. The therapy aims to raise awareness of unhelpful patterns and couple interactions; build emotional openness and closeness; change unhelpful thoughts, assumptions & perceptions that impact the relationship, and increase effective communication and behaviour.

I received my training & specialist supervision from the Tavistock Relationships Centre, London.

I have experience of working with parents to consider children’s development and how to support children’s emotional wellbeing, especially at times of transition/emotional difficulty.

For several years I worked for a charity, leaders in the field of children’s mental health & wellbeing. I worked both with children through art & play therapy, and with parents. I have a Certificate in Children’s Emotional Literacy (Institute of arts in therapy & education)
