About Rebecca


Rebecca Hay is a psychotherapist who specialises in helping women with anxiety, to break free and find a way out of their darkness.

She works with her clients to help them find their purpose, so that they can reignite their fire and live their lives in freedom.


Anxiety was something Rebecca suffered with in silence, for most of her life. It is through the work she completed on her own journey that led her to want to pursue a career where she gets to help others overcome their anxiety.  


Described as "too much" throughout her life and always feeling not good enough, Rebecca’s anxiety led her to make life decisions based on others’ expectations.

She lost her identity as she struggled to fit in and found herself living a life without purpose.


Following years of self-discovery and training to become a psychotherapist, Rebecca has made it her life mission to help women in particular find their light and help them on their journey to overcome anxiety and to never be in darkness again.


Rebecca is also an associate therapist for The Wilderness Foundation in Chelmsford helping children and young people with their mental health through nature emersion therapy and as well as being the owner of her own successful private practice, RH Counselling Service in Colchester, Essex.


A Note from Rebecca:

"If you’ve found yourself overwhelmed by feelings of anxiety, frustration, or a deep-seated desire for change amidst struggles, you’re in the right place. I understand the courage it takes to confront these feelings and seek help, I’m here to offer a non-judgmental, safe environment for you to explore and accept your true self.
With a compassionate approach tailored to meet your individual needs, I offer therapy that transcends traditional methods. Whether you’re dealing with trauma, neurodivergence, menopause anxiety or identify as LGBTQI+, my inclusive practice welcomes all. With a variety of innovative techniques, including walk and talk therapy and creative play as well as traditional talking therapy, to both young people and adults, especially those who might find traditional therapy challenging, I aim to help you transition from a place of fear to freedom.
Therapy is about more than coping—it’s about thriving. It’s designed to help you understand and accept yourself by providing the tools you need to live your best life"
