About me and my therapy practice
Sorry to anyone currently keen to book an initial session with me. I am currently unable to take new clients until October 2019.
Hi, my name is Rachel and I offer a down to earth, confidential space where you can speak with ease, whatever your difficulty might be.
I believe the key to successful counselling is the relationship between therapist and client, therefore I offer an initial, free 30 minute session to everyone so you can decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
I work from a Humanistic perspective where emphasis is placed on the uniqueness and respect of the individual, and therapist and client can work together, exploring present difficulties or past issues. Counselling requires the client to engage and be active in the process as it is the client who is the expert on themselves, not the therapist. The journey can often seem challenging but as the therapist, I am with the you every step of the way.
I will offer you the space to creatively explore your own potential and develop a deeper understanding of who you are, while encouraging growth and self awareness in a supportive environment. Whatever difficulties presented, I believe that either time limited or long term counselling can be an opportunity to get to know oneself better and explore the potential for positive change without judgement on the way.
The initial 30 minute consultation is free in both practices.
Appointments are charged at £45 per individual and £55 per couple
I offer an upfront price of £250 for a block of 6 sessions.
I also offer a limited number of reduced cost appointments for counselling students and a sliding scale for those on a low wage. If this is something you are financially in need of then please bring it to my attention at assessment and we can discuss it from there.
