I’m Rebecca Morrell, a qualified counsellor based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
If you are reading this, it is possible you are looking for a counsellor for yourself or a loved one.
Please have a read through my site and don’t hesitate to contact me should you require further information or wish to book in for an appointment.

About Me

The core approach I work from is the Relational Approach which maintains that the relationship between client and counsellor is a key factor in determining the success of the counselling. It is really important that you feel comfortable with your counsellor so I offer a free 15 minute initial telephone appointment in order for you to ask any questions and get a sense of how it might be for us to work together.

The work we do together will be tailored to you and the issues you are bringing to counselling. There is no one rule fits all in counselling, so it may at times be appropriate for me to offer various tools and theories into our work. For example, some clients engage well with working creatively, so we may get on the floor together with a big sheet of blank paper and plenty of pens to explore an event or your feelings. However, this doesn’t work for everyone, and sometimes people seek counselling for more practical support, in which case we might for example discuss breathing techniques for dealing with anxiety. We will work together to decide what would be beneficial for you.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and therefore I work to their ethical standards. I am currently completing my application for BACP accreditation.

In addition to my 4 years of private practice I have gained over 3 years experience from working at Bradford Counselling Services. A project in Bradford City Centre offering counselling for all ages and various issues.

I also work as an Associate Counsellor for GamCare, providing counselling for Gambling addicts or affected family members and loved ones. Should you wish to begin GamCare counselling with me in Huddersfield please contact the National GamCare helpline on 0808 8020 133

In addition to my Counselling practice I have completed a Diploma which enables me to supervise the work of other counsellors. All counsellors access supervision in order to discuss their client work and ensure they are working to ethical standards.

  • "I'd highly recommend Rebecca to anybody. Always felt very welcomed and felt it was a nice atmosphere. The experience helped massively for me. I've conquered fears and I feel a million times better about myself."

  • "I'm extremely grateful for the help received from Rebecca.

    She showed empathy and understanding. I feel much better than when I started three and a half months ago."

  • "Thank you for all your help and support.

    Having never had counselling before I didn't know what to expect. I would now recommend counselling as a support without doubt based on my experience."

  • "Thank you for agreeing to the sessions. You allowed me at times to wonder with my thoughts, but still allowed me to be pointed in the right direction. 

    You put me at ease which allowed me to be open and honest with you."

Counselling

What is counselling?

Sometimes when going through a difficult time it can be easier to talk to someone who doesn’t know you, won’t judge you or tell you what to do.

The counselling relationship is confidential and gives you the space to say things you may not usually feel comfortable saying for fear of being judged or upsetting loved ones. 

You may not completely understand the way you are feeling, and you may find it useful having someone to guide you through an exploration of your feelings and thoughts.

It is important for you as the client to feel safe, in a trusting, honest and supportive relationship with your counsellor. The strength of the relationship itself is essential for the counselling process and for this reason it is really important that you find the right counsellor for you.

Counselling can help with: relationship problems, anxiety, depression, bereavement, low self esteem, eating disorders, self harming, work related worries, stress, trauma, divorce, poor health, anger and much more.

Counselling is not just about listening, or about giving advice. The counselling relationship provides a secure base from which you can explore difficult feelings, experiment with different ways of being and start to make changes or work towards goals.

SUPERVISION

I’m a qualified supervisor

I work in supervision much like I do as a counsellor, working with supervisees in a holistic way. I feel it’s important to know my supervisees as individuals, not just practitioners. This provides me with a greater understanding of the context from which you are meeting your clients and can really inform a substantial part of the supervision process.

I also feel that contact outside of supervision sessions is incredibly important, to know that you have access to this should you experience a difficulty, have a query or need a little bit of reassurance. 

I hope to foster a strong trusting relationship, where my supervisees feel at ease to share their struggles, concerns, mistakes and triumphs. We are all always progressing and developing, and supervision plays an important role in this.

I work from the 7 eyed model, to try and consider the work with your clients from various angles.

Supervision costs: £40 for 1 hour, £60 for 1.5 hours.

FAQs

  • In our first session I will ask you to talk about the issues that have brought you to seek counselling and what you expect from having counselling. I will explain my way of working and how we might work together to achieve your aims. There’s no obligation to continue working together after the first session if you choose not to.

  • I charge £40 for a 50 minute session. A 50% deposit will be required prior to the first appointment, and future appointments will be expected to be paid ahead of the appointment.

  • You may choose to bring cash or a cheque to our session, or payment can be made via bank transfer. A 50% deposit for the first session will be required in advance in order to book your first appointment. The remainder of the balance can be paid by cash or cheque when you attend the appointment. There is a requirement to pay for future sessions in advance of the appointment, so you may send a bank transfer, or pay in cash/cheque at the previous appointment.

  • Each session is 50 minutes long. Should you wish to have longer sessions, please contact me to discuss this and we can assess whether this might be appropriate in your case.

  • Please contact me for up to date availability as this can change on a weekly basis. I do aim to be flexible where possible. Sessions can be available from 9am until 8:30pm.

  • The number of sessions will vary for individuals. I would suggest in the first instance we agree to a number of sessions (usually 6) and review our progress regularly.  Sessions should be weekly at the beginning of the process in order to establish a safe and open relationship of trust.
