About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I'm Rachel. I am an integrative counsellor and I am able to change the way I work to suit your needs in a gentle way. I will give you a safe space to look at the things that are bringing you here. This is the first step on your journey to understand and become aware of what is going on for you. It can be daunting taking this first. I will listen to you in a warm and empathetic way. This is a space for you to be heard.

I believe our therapeutic relationship is very important as you share your story. My aim is to empower you, by creating a confidential safe place for you to be heard, where you can explore those thoughts and feelings that come up for you.

We can work out together what it is you want from counselling. I will work with what you bring to each session in a kind, open and non-judgemental way. I will help you look at the parts of yourself that may not make sense to you right now in a way that works for you. And I will support you in taking those steps you choose to take.

I have always enjoyed working with people and I am passionate about people exploring and fulfilling their own needs. I have many years experience in nursing within the NHS and have also provided emotional support for those in supported living in community settings. And I have acted as an advocate for people with learning disabilities and communication difficulties.

Please call me on 07562 530740 to arrange a time to talk to me. My phone is switched off during sessions so please leave a message and I will get back to you. I am able to offer you an informal free 15 minute chat on the phone, as an opportunity for both of us to see if we can work together. I do have some concessionary places, which I offer to those in hardship, please ask for more details.
