Rachel Eggleton Counselling
Forest Of Dean
I believe that everyone has the resources within themselves to explore what is happening for them and to start to make sense of their feelings and thoughts. My role as counsellor is to walk alongside the client as they undertake that exploration and I don't make judgements or offer opinions or advice.
In addition to offering general counselling, I have a particular interest, and experience, in working with women and men who are struggling with issues related to pregnancy such as miscarriage, stillbirth, traumatic birth, infertility and so on. The loss of a child, at any stage of pregnancy, can be unlike any other grief and people often feel that their pain is invisible to others. Having the time and space to talk at your own pace can be very beneficial to the grieving process.
My main theoretical approach is person centred which looks at people's beliefs about themselves and the world around them. Sometimes our beliefs can hold us back or negative beliefs can be reinforced by traumatic events such as bereavement so, I offer a warm, accepting space in which to explore those beliefs and gently challenge them.
The counselling relationship is vitally important and I work with each client in the way that is best for them.

"Counselling has helped me gain a better understanding of the extreme emotions I've dealt with recently and has allowed me to unpick why I was feeling so low. Rachel is an excellent counsellor who skilfully supported my journey and gave me a safe space to work through the difficulties I was experiencing"
