Rebecca Champ- ADHD Specialist
Based in Cambridgeshire, UK, Rebecca is an established ADHD Specialist. She has an in-depth understanding of the emotional and intellectual 'over-excitabilities' that comes with a unique brain structure. As an experienced skills coach, her main role in Eggshell Therapy is to support other emotionally intense individuals discover their strengths and develop their natural skills.
Rebecca trained as a psychotherapist after discovering that there was little support or services available for adults with ADHD. Having ADHD herself, Rebecca offers a unique perspective: one that places personal growth, self worth and individual potential of clients at its heart.
She is also the Executive Director of ADDapt Ability, an emerging social enterprise aiming to offer practical support and education for professionals and individual adults with ADHD. Rebecca also works with the Cambridge University Disability Service as a mentor for students, designing and developing strategies and structures to utilise their strengths and resources to achieve their goals. Most recently, she worked with a homeless charity, supporting individuals who experience challenges with alcohol and substance abuse, and anger management.
She takes an Integrative approach; combining person-centred principles with techniques in Gestalt, Family Systems, Hypnotherapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. As a member of the BACP, Rebecca is bound by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
