Rebecca is the Psychological Therapist on the Re-BOOT study, funded by the Burdett Trust.
Rebecca graduated from the University of Liverpool with a BA in Social Science and from the University of Central Lancashire with a Graduate Diploma in Psychological Studies. She went on to complete a Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), specialising in Psychological Trauma and is currently studying towards an MSc at the University of Oxford.
Over the past 10 years, Rebecca has gained experience working in the field of Clinical Psychology within diverse contexts, including the NHS and the charity sector. Rebecca’s clinical practice involves assessing, formulating, and delivering evidence-based CBT interventions, supporting individuals to develop a coherent narrative of their life experiences, whilst providing meaning and facilitating positive change. Rebecca has delivered both one-to-one and group CBT workshops, such as self-esteem and anxiety management groups. Rebecca’s breadth of experience includes working within the community, delivering therapy to individuals with long-term health conditions, (such as diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and coronary heart disease) whilst considering the reciprocal relationship between physical and mental health.
Rebecca’s specialist interests centre around post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). More recently, she has worked therapeutically with healthcare professionals and uniformed services, including doctors, nurses, fire & rescue, paramedics and military veterans. This furthered her interest in how individuals can be better supported in their work, in response to distressing events experienced on duty.
