Rachel Critchley MBACP (Snr.Accred)
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor with 20 years experience of counselling a huge diversity of people. I have been trained in 3 different theoretical approaches, which I feel helps me to adapt to the people I meet, finding the approach that suits the person. I enjoy short and long term work, and I am happy to tailor the therapy to the individual needs of my clients.

I have a BSc (Hons) in Clinical Psychology from Kent University and a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology from London Metropolitan University. I have been a counsellor for 20 years working with private clients, NHS referrals and Employer Assistance Programs. I taught psychology and counselling courses for adult education for 12 years before focusing on my private practice. I am currently training in therapies that used mindfulness, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassionate Mind Therapy.
