Rachel Durrant, Counselling for adults, adolescents and children
I believe that people are unique individuals with different ways of coping with living in the world and find that by working integratively I am able to adapt my work to suit you and your individual needs. My approach draws on different theories and strategies including psychoanalytic attachment theory, neuroscience, solution focused ideas and creativity (especially with children) encompassing art, clay and sandtray work. My aim is to create a safe, warm, private space where my clients feel that they can explore difficulties without judgement in order to heal and grow.
Some of the issues I have worked with include anxiety, stress, depression, loss (bereavement, parental seperation/divorce), self-harm, suicidal thoughts, abuse, domestic violence, family and romantic relationships, gender dysmorphia, body dysmorphia, social anxiety and selective mutism.
I am a fully insured, DBS checked and Registered Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and I abide by their Code of Ethics in my work. If you would like to know more about the different forms of therapy please visit the BACP website on www.bacp.co.uk

The initial assessment gives us a chance to meet to talk through some of the reasons you are seeking a counsellor and for you to get a sense of whether you feel able to work with me. Not everyone gets on with everybody all of the time and I understand that finding the right counsellor for you is important.
£50 for initial 50 mins assessment consultation.
If you decide that you would like to begin working with me the fees are usually £50 for normal 50 mins counselling session (however there are some concessions). We would agree to meet at the same time each week for a period of time (mutually agreed) and this would be reviewed as the work progressed. I work from a purpose built therapy cabin in West Ewell.
I am happy to discuss any questions you may have either by telephone or email, so please feel free to contact me if you are unsure where to begin.
