About me and my therapy practice
I understand that sometimes life feels hard. You might be going through some difficulty in a relationship, feel unhappy or stressed at work, or perhaps something from your past is affecting your life today.
Whatever it is, I provide a safe place in which you can talk things through with me in confidence and where you will be listened to with compassion, understanding and without judgement. I believe in the power of relationship: building a relationship with you where trust and acceptance facilitate open communication about the things that are troubling you.
I specialise in relationship issues but can work with you to explore any difficulty. I work with both couples and individuals.
I am committed to helping you explore your difficult thoughts and feelings to find a way to feel better and experience life differently. I will work at your pace; I offer short term and long term counselling. I work from a comfortable room at Westgate House Gloucester.
I am a highly experienced, qualified counsellor. Please visit rachaelblackmore.com/testimonials to read what other people have said about working with me.
With a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, I work as an integrative therapist. This means I draw on the Person-Centred approach and use Psychodynamic theory to work collaboratively with you to improve your mental and emotional well-being.
I work with many issues, including marriage and relationship issues, affairs and betrayals, separation and divorce, anxiety and depression, panic disorder, low self esteem and self confidence, gender dysphoria, sexuality, career support and redundancy, stress, work related stress, infertility, and transgender issues.
I work from a comfortable room in the centre of Gloucester with ample free parking.
I am qualified to work with individuals and couples.
I offer face to face, video, online (instant messaging) and telephone counselling.
Individual sessions last for 50 minutes and the fee is £55.
Couples sessions last for an hour and the fee is £85.
I accept cash or electronic transfer. I'm sorry but I cannot accept card payments.
