The intervention she provides is integrative and is tailored to meet each clients' need but is primarily underpinned by the Gestalt principles of self awareness, self support and personal responsibility. Rebecca's therapeutic approach is based on supporting her clients to develop increased awareness of what they are doing, how they are doing it, and how they can change themselves, and at the same time, learn to accept and value themselves. This learning is a means of enabling individuals to fully engage with various aspects of their lives, can lead to a happier and calmer emotional life and improved relationships with others.
