About me and my therapy practice
Hello. My name is Rachel and I work as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist at New Hope Counselling. Are you facing difficulties or issues which are hard to make sense of? Maybe you are feeling like things are never going to change? I work with people experiencing anxiety, depression, abuse, trauma, bereavement, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties and mental health issues.
I can offer you the time and space to explore whatever is troubling you or causing you distress, and help you to identify ways to bring about hope, change and healing. I work in a gentle, empathic and non-judgemental way, giving you a safe and confidential place to explore your thoughts and feelings, come to a greater understanding of your situation and find a way to move forward.
The therapy I provide is predominantly talking therapy but I also offer creative ways of working such as drawing, journaling and sandtray therapy, if it is something you would find helpful. Many of my clients have experienced difficulties with their self-esteem due to their past (family upbringing) or recent events (such as illness or relationship breakdown. I work with them to identify the roots of these difficulties and give them strategies to build and improve their self-esteem and self confidence.
Counselling gives you the time and opportunity to explore what is really going on for you with a warm, caring person who listens impartially and will not judge you. It does not involve me giving you advice but rather enabling you to gain your own perspective and insight into what we look at together. This will in turn empower you to understand what is best for you in order to make positive changes in your life.
