About me and my therapy practice

My name is Rachael and I am a person-centred counsellor and registered member of the BACP.

In my counselling practice I am compassionate and caring with a firm ethical and professional approach. I offer a warm, confidential, therapeutic space where you may discuss whatever you may wish, without judgement. We may work together for an agreed number of sessions or in an ‘open ended’ approach. 

Over the past few years, I have worked in GP practices in Chester and Broughton, with a wide variety of clients with issues ranging from grief and bereavement, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, abuse (in its many forms), workplace stress, health conditions, everyday stressors and loneliness.

Alongside private counselling, I work as a therapist with a charitable organization based in Chester, providing counselling to clients facing adversity and often multiple, complex issues.

I have worked abroad in diverse, multinational and multicultural environments and enjoy working with diversity and across cultures. 

Beyond counselling, I have a background in health care I have practiced as a health educator and have been a registered nurse for many years. In my nursing career I specialized in oncology and palliative care which, along with my personal life experience, has given me an intimate understanding of grief and loss. 

During the recent COVID19 crisis, I have been involved with providing counselling to frontline NHS workers.

Qualifications and Registrations

  • MA Clinical Counselling (with distinction), Chester University.
  • Diploma in Counselling Studies, Derby University.
